Too heavy & strong.

I'm not sure... Feels forced which I hate to say about sam Adams but this isn't one that I'm proud of. And it tastes too similar to chocolate bock without all of the goodness...

Very good for a porter. Hearty good flavor with some hops and nice mild aftertaste.

I'm tasting this one with a cold, but still I smell apples in my clogged nose. The brew is black with just a thin spit of carbonation foam in the top. Tastes like a mouthful of black bread: hearty and chewy. The taste lingers. Strong maltiness with a caramel undertone. Not bad, not bad at all. Doesn't seem to have any effect on my head congestion though.

Medium mouthfeel, some chocolate/coffee notes, nice maltiness. A little bitter at the end.

I am so happy they brought this back to the holiday 12 pack. Lots. Of roasted malt flavor and very smooth.

Had in sampler case. Thick head off pour. Dark color. Not special but not bad. No aftertaste. Sam Adams brews too many beers.

Decent porter with a nice mild smokiness.

Dark, chocolate color. Has slight chocolate flavor, not too overpowering, with hints of hop and slight bitter aftertaste. Tasty!
