UPDATED: NOV 21, 2016 Samuel Smith’s is a class act. I have enjoyed every beer I have had from them and this was no exception. Reddish brown color. Tastes of raisins, oak, toffee, tad of buttery-caramel. Strong but not overly syrupy. Lovely. Serving: Bottle SPDickerman (1315) - Texas, USA - FEB 28, 2012
Pours murky brown with a small ring of light tan, khaki fizz. Smells sweet, oaky, with a nice vanilla characteristic, coupled with some caramel and dark fruit aromas. Taste is sweet, smooth caramel and vanilla flavors that waltz with some dark fruit, raisin, plum, fig, flavors. Medium to full bodied with a smooth, velvety texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Sam Smith Yorkshire Stingo finishes with some smooth sweetness that is reminiscent of vanilla. mrhoppy (1196) - Santa Clara, California, USA - MAY 1, 2012
I love the Yorkshire Squares! If these guys would get crazy with their beers and experiment with Belgium yeast, various hop varieties and fruits especially Plums they could make some epic beers. Stingo really has that Jack Daniels thing working it’s way through it. A manly beer. Fig, plum and raisin are present. I scored this for only 3.69 at Monument! I am going to get another one of these a mix it with a spicy, fruity Belgium beer. You can taste centuries of beer making in this. The fruity aspects really are incredible. Aroma is light but flavor is strong. Mild Barleywine character. Very enjoyable. Classy beer that stand out.
