A- Dark amber ale poured into a tulip with a one-finger off-white head. Not much cap retention as it fizzes out to a small ring and thin cloud. Not much lace at all.

S- Not a ton going on for me. Definite yeast bread and caramel malt as well as some fruit. Maybe a pinch of oak and spicy hops as well.

T- Mostly malty with notes of deep caramel and some toast/roast hints. There is a hint of oak/wood but it is definitely not mighty. Some hints of spicy hops and fruit.

MF- Seems like Sam Adams has a very consistent mouthfeel. Moderately creamy and thick feel with foamy but smooth carbonation. Finishes slightly bitter.

Pretty much just a decent amber ale. The "mighty" oak doesn't make a mighty difference to me, it is there but not a game-changer.
