Samuel Adams “Merry Mischief”

Merry Mischief      I hope everyone’s December has been awesome this far and filed with equally awesome beer! My favorite things about Christmas/Holiday beers are their clever names and festive label art! I don’t like to judge a beer by its cover but it does help the over all experience if the label isn’t lame. The name and label on this week’s beer is just as rad as the goodness inside!
       Samuel AdamsMerry MischiefGingerbread Stout pours an almost opaque black color, with a two finger thick fluffy brown head. The aroma is very inviting, with the sweet smells of chocolate malt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and coffee. The taste starts out with dark chocolate and Christmas spices, including ginger. Then it releases its sweet malty, molasses and roasty coffee flavors. This is a brew you want to take it easy with. The 9% abv is present but easily masked by all the tasty flavors going on. The mouthfeel is medium to thin. The finish is sweet and creamy. An instant fav of mine this year! Here’s to Good Beers!
