A: Beer pours a dark roast color with a 1 inch cream colored head that leaves some good lacing.

S: Smell is of dark chocolate, roasted malts, caramel, coffee, and a hint of dark fruit.

T: Nice roasted malt bite at the front, followed by some dark chocolate, coffee and dark fruit like an apple or some kind of berry.

M: Very smooth and creamy beer, has a bit of a kick. Too dark to notice any carbonation, but very drinkable.

O: This is a slow sipper for me as with all stouts. As to how it measures up to others in its class, its right up there at the top. One of Sam Adams finest creations, cheers!

Poured from a bottle into a Dead Guy Ale pint glass. Pours a deep black with a tan two finger head. Looks delicious. Leaves an odd spiderweb like lacing all throughout the glass once finished. The smell is of dark chocolate and coffee. Not a fan of dark chocolate, But whatever, smells good. The taste starts off as medium toasted malt, Met in the finish by a rich, chocolate flavor and ever so slight coffee beans. Tastes like a big ole Chips Ahoy Cookie. The mouthfeel is pretty much the same, Once swallowed it feels as though you just took a big bite out of a cookie with chunky bits of chocolate chips. It also has an extremely creamy finish and is as smooth as velvet. Would I buy it again? Yes, Oh yes
