Medium tan collar that reduces to edge-of-glass only with a little bit of lacing. Molasses odor. Vanilla taste with slightly sticky bitter aftertaste. Expected a coffee taste which I HATE so was pleasantly surprised.

Beer pours a coffee color with almost no head. The smell is sweet cocoa and cola. The flavor is carmel and vanilla and extremely smooth. This was a sample pack and this is by far the best in the pack. Oh and it had NO IPA! Thank you Sam Adams.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle.
Look - two finger head that dissipates into about one with good lacing. beer itself is dark but still see through
Smell - roasted malts, dark chocolate, and coffee. almost stout like
Taste - velvety and smooth. flavor of the dark chocolate lingers throughout the sip, lingering into the aftertaste. slightly sweet finish.
Feel - medium bodied beer. the alcohol is detectable but not too strong.
Overall - this is a nice one to sip on. pairs nicely with some actual dark chocolate.

Color is dark brown, smell is toasted bread, chocolate and dark malts. Taste is toasty with a little bit of char and also dark fruits. Minimal lacing and a quick dissipating head. Not bad for Sam Adams. Nice beer to enjoy on festivus. Wish there was more chocolate.

L: Very dark with a light tan head of foam that dissipates rather quickly
S: Smells almost like an alcoholic cola with a hint of chocolate undertones to it
T: Malty, yeasty and a bakers chocolate taste on the back end of the tongue but this does not play well together
F: It has the mouth feel of a sticky soda
O: This is not one of Sam Adams better offerings.
