Found this in a Sam Adams brewmasters sampler 12 pack at Target, of all places. Hard to pass up as the sampler included three new varieties I hadn't yet tried. Poured into pint glass, with a perfect dark amber. Not much head, but decent lacing on the side of the glass. Mouthfeel was the low point for me, as there was no substance, just watery. Flavor was quite the opposite, though. Strong oak flavor, highlighted with a perfect blend of caramel and vanilla. This might be the driest finish of any beer I can recall. Decent beer that I would purchase on its own, away from the sampler. I want to prefer other breweries to Sam Adams, because I feel they are almost too mainstream. However, I can't deny that Jim Koch and crew put out some quality beverages. I'd rate it overall as an 89.
