Quality written all over it. I musta hit the pour right on, becuause the head developed nicely and stayed for a while. A bit nutty in the aroma, roasty, and a tad sweet. Exactly those components are in the flavor. Quite straightforward that way. Medium-bodied.

very dark, no head to speak of, moderately thin and quite malty indeed

Somewhat of a weak aroma, but the flavor makes up for that..especially after it warms a little. A roasted, sweet maltiness that’s easy on the palate. Although not amazing, still a tasty brew. As other said, the Oatmeal Stout from this brewer is a better tasting experience.

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - JUN 26, 2002
Initially somewhat watery and thin, but it shapes up nicely as it warms. Roasted malt and astringency in the nose with accompanying roasted coffee flavor and some sweetness up front. Settles, as it warms, into a nice mochaccino flavor (milk & bitter chocolate with dark roasted coffee). Very interesting dark ruby color with a large, tan head. Nice and pleasant, but the mochaccino flavor teetered on the brink of becoming a distraction.

Not too dissimiliar from other dark Samuel Smith beers. This one isn’t as good as the oatmel stout, but it is definately worth trying. It is mildly sweet for a porter, and has a refreshing aftertaste. Very dark appealing appearence, and a good oder.

Very dark. Thin body. Sweet but bitter. Somewhat unbalanced.

This one has a nice dark color and a good head like most of Samuel Smiths. The aroma is good and the taste has elements of chocolate and coffee. A good beer, but I would agree with others that you should get the Oatmeal Stout.
