Shadowy dark tarnished brown with a big billowing light cocoa hued head of foam; lightly fluffing and spongyness ensues as it grows up fast from a heavy pour. Fades off moderately to a good solid skimming and lacing of all kinds lightly grab the glass.

Nice aroma of dry black malts with a mild touch of chocolate sweetness and vanilla cookies. Very aromatic and appetizing to wiff in.

Flavors are just as nice, a bit more sweetness intersedes the front end with some black and chocolate malt, middle is seemingly like Oreo cookies, finishes with a nice leveling of moderate dry bite of slight roast, chocolate powder, and light Noble-like hopping. Very nice finish, did I just eat an Oreo?

Feel is fluffy, carrying a sweet front, drying most ways across from there, slight crispness to its body as well. Body is about medium to medium/light with a favorably low carbonation making for some kicked-back, sliding-down-the-Ol'-gullet, easy goin' drinkability. A big time session beer that actually has a different taste then most other session types. A nice version of a hard to pin down style. Way to go BBC! Nice brew.

Old Review

Get this at the Grub Mart here in Jacksonville. Bottle poured into a pint.

A: Poured a nice dark brown with red accents. Had a nice off white head that stayed for the majority of the beverage. Had some decent lacing.

S: Chocolate, malt, cocoa, coffee, bitter and earthy hops.

T: Chocolate, roasted malt, smoke, coffee, has a bitter finish (either hops or the coffee)

M: A little light and thin, but this is still a lager. Has a nice clean finish. Medium carbonation.

D: Very drinkable. Easily my favorite Sam Adams. Has some complex flavors but is not too heavy. Very enjoyable.

Poured from bottle into standard pint glass. Notched July.

A - As the name suggests, pours black in color with only a little light getting through. Thick frothy off white head that is now only a thin covering on the beer.

S - Smells very sweet. Chocolate and sweet caramel malt.

T - Sweet malt and nuts up front. Finishes into bittersweet chocolate. Roasted malts at the forefront.

M - Medium to full bodied. More to the medium side. Carbonation is good. Dry finish.

D - Nice beer. Could drink a ton of these, but a solidly crafted brew.
