bottle from 4 pack with the little plastic icon

poured into sam adams' new pint glass

A- Dark brown, nearly black with red/auburn hues in light. Half finger of head recedes quickly to minimal head retention, with creamy brown color.

S- Molasses, maltose/malt sugars, dried fruit (persimmon?) Upon exhaling, alcohol leaves nasal passages with a slight burn reminiscient of hot spices/chiles.

T- Malt sweetness is immediate, almost too sweet at first but is balanced by hop bitterness in the finish that is just enough. Scorched caramel, coffee, slighty bready flavors take a backup role but are present. Well balanced.

M- ridiculously smooth- silken on the tongue, carbonation hits quickly, but becomes mild as it finishes quickly and lifts away the malt sweetness, preventing it from being overpowering.

D- overall, I grew to like this beer more and more as I drank it (and I have issues with maltose/molasses flavors). I don't know if I could drink more than one at a sitting- I feel it needs food cause the abv seems to sneak up on you due to its insane smoothness going down, perhaps a meal of sausages or game with german black bread. Definitely something to warm you during the cold winter, goes great with a hearty stick-to-your ribs meal (heavy bean stews- had it with Publick House's cassoulet before).
