Bottle (55 cl) from Systembolaget. Clear orange brown, medium beige head. Fudgy and caramelly malt aroma, with some earthy hops, and some vague wooden notes. Medium bodied and smooth. Dry with medium bitterness. JohnC (3008) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JUN 13, 2010
Thanks to Tim for sharing this beer. This reddish pour had a nice flavor. It was on the sweet side but not too sweet. I enjoyed it. SHIG (4964) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUN 12, 2010
Bottle: Poured a reddish color with little head. Aroma is fruit and oak barrel. The taste is sweet malt and oak. mbgrayson (799) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - JUN 3, 2010
Vintage brewed in 2008. Pours amber with a tan head. Notes of fruit and a subtle, rich oak flavor. Smooth and very drinkable, with a lightly carmelized taste. Very well balanced. I like this one quite well. Thumbs up. PalCabral (162) - SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2010
Was perhaps a bit careless when pouring and got a lot of sediment in the glass, but it’s still a nice copper-to-brown beer to look at. Aroma is discrete of dried fruit. The taste malty sweet, more dried fruit and alcohol, backed nicely by bitterness. Caramel too. The bitterness stays for a while, some tastes of tobacco. Quite a full mouth but nice, very nice. Though dangerous I bet.

Bottle. Clear amber colour with huge creamy off-white mostly lasting head. Sweet malty aroma. Too sweet. Croff (164) - Ostra Sonnarslov, SWEDEN - MAY 27, 2010
Pours a darker amber. Off white head that slowly fades to lace. Aroma of oak, caramel, and malt. Fruity caramel sweet flavor. Bubbly mouth feel. Alcohol is noticeable, but not over done. Light, smooth short lasting dry finish. It is a interesting brew and overall it is pretty good and unique brew. But I don’t think I would have another.

Bottle. A strong sweet smell, very drinkable, light fruity. The small white creamy head has a short duration. The body is dark red. The taste is quite sour. The body is light to medium strong with a normal carbonation. thagr81_us (175) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - MAY 18, 2010
Served from bottle into a Euro pint. Poured a nice copper color with a two finger off-white head. No lacing was apparent. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt and a slight oak hint. The flavor of this brew was sweet and had a medium feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a nicely flavored brew that was quite refreshing. This was a very nice offering from Samuel Smith. Too bad it is a limited release...
