12oz bottle. Pours pitch black with a thick tan head. Aroma of roasted malts with hints of chocolate and caramel. Taste of sweet creamy milk chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, and a slight coffee flavor.

This one comes out like a substantial brown ale moreso than a stout. Needs more black. Aroma of nuttiness, toffee.

Wow, this one is like an ashtray, but not made by Mikkeller. Ashy and bitter. Not enough 2 row, chocolate, black patent malt etc. . .

Can't tell if over hopped, or just ashy imbalanced bitterness. Its SA so prolly not overhopped.

One day at the beer store I was on the prowl for something new, and did not expect that to come in the form of Sam Adams. Somehow, this beer has slipped past me all this time. No longer! This beer pours as black as motor oil and is completely opaque. I love drinking something that looks this way. The head is a light brown color and laces beautifully down the glass. To me, the taste is strongly of chocolate and coffee. Goes down smoothly and I can't wait to have another!
