Samuel Adams Black & Brew Coffee Stout

samuel_adams_black_and_brew

I just picked up a variety pack of Samuel Adams winter seasonals from the Boston Brewing Company.   There a a couple of beers in the mix this year that I’m not familiar with (I don’t know if they’re new, or I just haven’t seen them before) but the first review is going to be the new-to-me Black & Brew Coffee Stout.  The nose is roasted chocolate, and the coffee comes on strong in the middle.  It’s not a heavy stout, as I’d call it a medium weight body.   The finish has notes of cocoa and fruit.  It’s interesting and enjoyable, though it’d be better if the various flavors were all a bit more subtle and blended.

I give it a 3.5 out of 5.
