80. Samuel Adams Old Fezziwig Ale

This was an interesting beer and a good addition to the Winter variety pack from Sam Adams. Color is a dark red / brown color with a very nice head that lingers throughout the beer. Taste is complex with lots of malt flavors and sweetness with a slight chocolate finish. Very good beer and this combined with the others in the variety pack make it worth buying.

Brewers Description: Spicy and bold, a big Christmas cookie of a beer. Samuel Adams® Old Fezziwig® Ale is bursting with spices of the season.  With a remarkably full body and flavor it helps those long winter nights pass more quickly. The rich taste hits the palate with a depth of malt character ranging from sweet toffee and caramel notes to dark, roasty chocolate notes. Then the spices come in full force. Cinnamon, ginger and orange peel dance on the tongue bringing with them the celebratory spirit of the season.
