With some smells and tastes returning post-COVID, it's tough to say if I'm getting everything out of this beer. That said, very smooth, I'm picking up maltiness, and there's a light bitterness. So, pretty good? Coming days and weeks should be interesting.

I'm surprised that the peppermint is so mild. Works really well with the bourbon and coffee flavors. Sort of sharp, bittersweet chocolate finish. I'm impressed.

Really good chocolate fudge flavor. Good coffee flavor, too, but without much bitterness. Smooth, mellow and finish and then BAM just the perfect amount of maple sweetness in the aftertaste.Earned the Stout Day (2020) badge! Earned the 2X (Level 40) badge!

A warm and bold unfiltered (?) beer. Orange peel gives it a subtle citrusy kick. Minimal hoppiness and only background bitterness. Not sure what's in the "winter spice" mix but it is rather nice. Turns out Sam Adams still makes some decent beer.
Immediately catch an aroma of chocolate with subtle raspberry. Notes of dark coffee, tart raspberry, bittersweet chocolate. Very smooth with a light bitterness in the finish.Earned the Heavy Weight (Level 61) badge!
