Sam Smith makes great beer that is very flavorful.I hate their glass bottles though which skunked the aroma a bit. However the taste was not affected and this was a "warming" beer great for the increesingly cold weather. Very smokey and rich perhaps a very small hint of chocalate?

Very nutty aroma, with a little toastiness, too. Fairly light ale, but definitely has Sam Smith's characteristic personality. Unfortunately, there just wasn't enough of it.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2003
UPDATED: APR 28, 2004 Very nice dark amber colour. Does not live up to the "nut brown". Sweet, fruit, honey, bitter.

I pulled this puppy out of the deepest darkest hole of my beer store; I hope it hasn’t spoiled?
This Samuel Smith’s Winter Welcome 2002-2003 poured a deep mahogany/amber color, with no head and a ting on light lacing. The aroma and flavor are medicinal and herbal with notes of honey, nutmeg, mint, caramel, and a toasty/nutty maltness, very nice. I’m looking forward to this soon to come seasonal for 2003-2004.

A nice amber color. Caramel, hop spice and fruity flavors. Very tasty, an excellent strong ale.

A holdout from winter. Still, as every year outstanding. Floral woody scented aroma. Deep cloudy head. Bountiful display of winter flavors, spices malt, flowers blended into a great beer. Look forward to the taste and the labels every year.

One of my favorites. Looks wonderful, tastes even better, warms the belly , and gives you that warm feeling in your cheeks. If you've never tried this beer you are depriving yourself.

a Top ten beer ever for me. Excellent flavors. Reminds me of some sort of candy. Very nutty. Now I wish I had some blah.

roomtempbeer (185) - Franklin, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2003
Beer pours (in Hoegaarden glass) a medium dark orange-red with off-white head that lingers. Aroma is of pine needles, and skunk spray, vegetal. Flavor is of straw with hint of pine needles. Nothing great to like or enjoy about this one. Sampled at 71 degrees Fahrenheit.

Spicy with fruit undertones. Hard to find fresh here in Mi. Good hop flavor and nice Belgian lace.
