Samuel Adams Longshot Derf's Secret Alt

Samuel Adams beers are by the Boston Beer Company of Boston, Massachusetts.  This 9.3% ABV beer is part of Samuel Adams Longshot homebrew contest, where each year they choose several home brewer's recipes for their Longshot release.  This is the recipe of Fred Hessler.

The beer pours dark brown and ruby, with a short head of light brown foam.  The aroma is malty, sweet, burnt sugar and caramel, toffee and nut.  The taste is not as sweet as the aroma, but still sweetly malty and the tastes match many of the aromas, just more roasted and toasted.  It has enough carbonation and bitterness to not be cloyingly sweet.  It is nice tasting for the sticke alt style.
