Deep and rich chestnut to near black in color with a breathtaking amber head. Slight wine-like aroma with a slight scent of oats as well. Smooth mouthfeel, akin to a fine Port with flavors of plum and raisins that finish quite dry on the palate.

Very very tasty, the best Sam Smith beer by far, and Iím not even a big stout fan!

Very nice hints of coffee. Aroma is a bit on the weak side, though I donít think it is bad. Nice foamy head and a beautiful dark look. Would absolutely recommend.

Loved it. The oatmeal flavors add a creamyness that really complements the typical stout characters in this beer.

Sour milk in the nose. Dark black color and a huge foamy head. Root beer-like taste with coffee tones, also a little butteryness. Medium bodied. Good stuff.

Samples vary widely. My latest was rather pruny, thin and unrewarding. American stouts offer so much more for the money.

This beer is a classic stout. One of the first beers I tried as a young lad. Since this beer comes all the way from england & its in a clear bottle, it is always slightly stale by the time it gets here.
