Saw it and had to try it. Enticing malty-sweet aroma, and standard dark-coffee black in the glass. And then...that Sam Adams blandness. Oh, it wasn't bad, just...bland. Do they have a patent on that? As with most Sam Adams products, this would be a reasonable springboard beer to try on your friends who are leery of dark beers. But if you like porters, you won't be overly impressed.
