  • Quickie: Ah-o. Third dark (porter/bock/stout) in the SA Winter Pack, and the my issue all three kind of taste the same. Not bad but not different enough. Different colors but similar taste profile.

  • Poured clear with a full inch of tan foam. Retention is minimal leaving a very slight covering on the liquid. Blotchy here and there lacing at best.

    Aroma is molasses sweetness with dark fruits. Roasted malt also.

    Taste is similar to the nose with some ever so slight chocolate and coffee. Some bitterness in the finish and aftertaste.

    Medium body at best with a fair amount of carbonation. Seems just a bit thin.

    I could drink a few of these without any problem. Sam Adams did a good job here and I wish they would try to please the beer geeks a little more. Enjoy!
