Bottle, 5% at KØ09. Dark brown colour. Mild malty flavour, dark malt. Low bitterness. Good mouthfeel, nicely chewy, but the carbonation is a little high. Subtle but very nice.

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.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2004 Very dark brown, thin light tan head; aroma like the finest Belgian chocolate mixed with Atholl Brose. I want to fall into the glass. Silky body, fruity notes of cherry, redcurrant add an interesting layer to the silky malts and chocolate overtones. Sweet, luscious finish. One of those beers that leaves you at a loss for words. The classic oatmeal stout - depth without compromising stylistic adherence.
