Stumbled onto my old notebook of which I used to track beer and when I had tried them and what I thought. So, this review is not at all how I study and revieqw a beer, but seeing that this beer is since retired, seems like a good place to start coping down my old notes.

Drank straight from the bottle, tasted on October 21, 2007, came from one of the Sams Adams varity packs.

This beer was ok, it was heavy for what I thought an ale would be.

Yes folks that is all I wrote down, but I was new to the beer scene then. I do recall it having a dark brown color and what I thought then as a strong smell. Thanks for one of my first reviews, I have learned some much since then.
