look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
12oz to flare pint, got a brewmaster's 12pack since i haven't had this since last year and had never had the chance to try the boston ale, pours a copper reddish shade, off white head fades to lacing
smells of smoked and caramel malt, slight cocoa-y smoothness, sweet floral
taste is of hop bitterness followed by a nice smooth malt blending, sweet and roasty, earthy peat smokiness, floral aroma hops, creamy body, dark fruits (mostly fig), molasses. BBC's take is what i would imagine to be a little hoppier than most scotch ales but is nice and flavorful
mouthfeel is of a good medium body contributing to a nice weight, good amount of carbonation, slightly creamy malt, residual lingering hoppy bitterness in the finish
overall drinkability is good and sessionable.. one of my favorites of the sam adams line, sad that it's only seasonal, but hey
