I’m outside, enjoying this beautiful Sunday afternoon. I have access to the lappy, kalamata olive hummus & pretzel crisps. Also, I am drinking this Thirteenth Hour Belgian-Style Stout by Sam Adams.
The aroma is deep. I smell oak, I smell hints of hops, and subtle hints of chocolate. The taste is mildly woody, but also chocolatey & spicy. I find it to be an enjoyable beer to drink.
I give aroma a 9.5, taste a 9, and drinkability an 8.5. With 27/30, it gets a final score of 90. I enjoyed this beer greatly. I highly recommend this one. I plan on trying the other Sam Adams beers in these bottles as well. I feel like I’ve had everything they’ve made, with the exception of these special ones and the Utopia.
