4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
550ml bottle: BBD Nov 2013. Poured on 26 Aug 2013 at home into an Abbot Ale glass tankard.
Lovely dark brew: on top a huge tanned crown of foam.
Chocolatey and stouty! Really nice, I like chocolate and I like stouts.
Rich, at times creamy, wholesome and sweet: a very, very good beer. Haven’t checked my scores, but this is the best beer I’ve had from Sam Smith’s so far.
