Great ale, middle of the road body, aroma was .........odd, malty,nutty; freegin’ strange. The flavor reminded me of a smooth tea. Lots of fruit flavors and a weird cocoa/mocha taste thrown in, I’ve never tasted a brew like this one, sort of complicated flavor really. Worth a try.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 Bottle (550ml) in Samuel Smith std pint glass. Pours dark brown, reddish, like very strong tea - creamy, frothy, light tan head, even lacing, slightly rocky. Aroma is lovely sweet malt, some balancing hops, overripe, if not sour fruit (apple, prune, bread dough, arugula (bitter lettuce, you know) , hint of mocha. Taste is all of the above, sweet to start, bitter at the back of the mouth on the long finish. Medium bodied, oily mouthfeel A worthy younger brother to one of my faves, the Oatmeal Stout. LCBO better bring this in again this year!!

Bottle. Nutty malt and hops aroma. Cola brown color - moderate efferverscence, little head. Walnut/pecan flavor with strong hops finish. Nice drink when you don’t want the thickness of a stout or porter.

A Mes rate: Creamy and stout-like but a more mellow drinker. Obviously it’s nutty and there is clear chocolate in the nose coupled with a touch of liquorice too. The flavour mirrors the smell almost exactly and goes down a treat. My first from S.S. in a place that seems to have the full range. I shall be going back for more...

It has a nice roasted almond flavor but is a bit too much on the wet side for me.

Bottle Pours a...well...brown. Small light tan head and very nice clinging lacing. Aromas were a pretty heavy and sweet maltiness.Expectantly low on hops and fhte flavors were a nice woody slightly roasted malt with some of the nuttiness described above. A good example of a style I like.

Bottle: I am a fan of brown ales and this popular ale is great in it’s category. It pours an average off-white head with good lacing. Color is light brown. Light malts with average hops. I picked up on some flower tastes. Aromas enjoyed were toffee, brown sugar mixed with cardboard. Fizzy carbonation with a metallic finish. The bitterness was appropriate for the style and overall, I enjoyed Mr. Smith. Thanks Indiana_Red!

The scent is a bit skunked, which sucks because if I could take off the layer of skunkiness i bet it would so rule. Some walnuts and cashews are present in the aroma though. Nice white head, thick, on a very nice even brown body. more carbonated than i espected. its aight.
