One of my favorites from Sam Adams.

Just a beautiful color when poured out with decent head retention and a dark brown body.

Lots of things going on with this taste - Chocolate malt, roasted malts enhanced with different spices.

The smell and taste go hand in hand.

I give this beer a two thumbs up and look forward to it every year.
