Boston Brewing Company calls Samuel Adams Dark Depths a Baltic IPA. It’s certainly dark! There are heavy roasted grain notes in the nose. There’s a burst of pine and lemon from the hops in the middle, sweet caramel and a bit of chocolate from the malt in the finish, and a piney bitterness right at the tail end. This is a big flavor, heavy bodied beer and a nice treat for someone who enjoys a medium amount of bitterness in a strong porter or stout.
I give it a 4.2 out of 5.
