4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark heart, brown head. Peculiar aroma: liquorice, curaçao, brandy, phenol, Porto, apples. God body, smooth and harmonious, but less interesting than the aroma lets hope. Perfectly balanced, leading to a correct final. Similar to, but poorer, than my favorite <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/Ratings/Beer/ShowBeer London Porter.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home in NH, shared with Charlie (he liked it). Pours ruby-brown with a dense, beige cream head. Lacto roast aroma. Medium sweet flavor, slight burnt sugar, dark fruitiness, lacto sugar sweetness, faint cocoa. Light to medium in body with average, smooth carbonation. Sweet finish, more lacto sugars, faint cocoa roast, faint chocolate. A very solid beer overall. Glad to finally get around to having/rating it.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2004 Dark, almost black, with a nice brownish head. Aroma is malty, nutty and creamy, with chocolate and cocoa. Flavr is malty and well, and the nutty and creamy touches are there. Some vanilla, some milk. I like this brewery.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. I’ve always thought of Sam Smith’s as quite a small brewery so I can’t believe the number of ratings this beer has. Not that it is a bad beer, quite the opposite. Pours black with a cream colour head. Lots of roasted malt aromas including coffee, chocolate, cereals and liquorice. Good im mouth with a good dryness to balance the slight sweetness of the malts with a good finish. Excellent stout.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled (BB 03/2009)
Dark ruby color, almost opaque color, firm beige creamy head. Roasted malty and chocolaty, a bit sticky aroma. Chocolaty, lightly toasted malty, a bit sweet beer. Almost like beer with wheat (=banana fruity), so propably it is oat doing a job.
