Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a dimpled mug.

The color is a deep orange/gold with a finger of foamy brownish head and some thick lacing left on the glass.

The smell is oaky with some sweet malt flavor that is right behind that nice woody aroma that is right in the nose first. There is a spicy bit of aroma as well and it has a slight caramel flavor.

The taste is big butterscotch and is almost like candy as it comes down. There is some nice sweet honey flavor as well that seems to lay down on the tongue and helps the oak flavor slide down and makes this taste just delicious.

This beer has such a smooth feel that is goes down easy even thought there is a bit of a punch that was not expected. A real jem from Boston Beer.

Pours a nice red/auburn color with a semi-thick head. Nose leaves a bit to be desired, oak is notable, but little else is present. Mouthfeel is somewhat creamy and dries out toward the end. First sip is big malty oak, a little sweet for my taste. Reminiscent in some ways of a pumpkin ale. I tasted touches of vanilla and allspice, but malty oak still dominates the palate. Nothing offensive but nothing inspiring, either. Not a beer I’d go out of my way for.
