Black in colour, with a burnt roats maly nose, a deep roast malt and coffe tones with a a little bitter and a long roast finish Leighton (21255) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2011
Bottle at home in NH, shared with Charlie (he liked it). Pours ruby-brown with a dense, beige cream head. Lacto roast aroma. Medium sweet flavor, slight burnt sugar, dark fruitiness, lacto sugar sweetness, faint cocoa. Light to medium in body with average, smooth carbonation. Sweet finish, more lacto sugars, faint cocoa roast, faint chocolate. A very solid beer overall. Glad to finally get around to having/rating it.

Black with a light brown head. Aroma is sweet, roasted malt, coffee and light smoky. Flavor is quite sweet and moderate bitter. Dry and roasted bitter finish. Soft and smooth. 100910 fiulijn (20515) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 25, 2003
Dark heart, brown head. Peculiar aroma: liquorice, curaçao, brandy, phenol, Porto, apples. God body, smooth and harmonious, but less interesting than the aroma lets hope. Perfectly balanced, leading to a correct final. Similar to, but poorer, than my favorite <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/Ratings/Beer/ShowBeer London Porter.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein schwarzes Bier mit schöner bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Geruch röstmalzig, Schokolade. Geschmack sehr röstmalzig, angenehm cremig, schokoladig, erdig.

Ok stout - don’t understand why this beer attracts such high ratings??? rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 19, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2004 Dark, almost black, with a nice brownish head. Aroma is malty, nutty and creamy, with chocolate and cocoa. Flavr is malty and well, and the nutty and creamy touches are there. Some vanilla, some milk. I like this brewery. harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2005
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. saxo (18302) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2006
Bottle. Nice creamy tan head with good duration. Color is black. Aroma is sweet with hints of coffee. Taste is malty and a touch of caramel and coffee. Good palate.
