I'm not really going to go into what I got on flavor or aroma, but if you dig trying to figure out what your tasting, this is THE BEER to experience that with. The taste is complex more so than my girlfriend and I (who I do all of my tastings with) have ever experienced. Just as a teaser: tangerine, lemon/lime, white raisin, white/green grape, cranberry/prune, white bread. It's fun as hell just to try and figure out what you're tasting. Highly recommended. I would unquestionably buy this again. Two fans, through and through, were made tonight. Can't wait to try their entire line-up (especially the stouts!).

Had not had this for many years until tonight, strong alcohol aftertaste - used to drink it along with Guinness and Scotch 20 plus years ago and I had forgotten what a complicated beer this is. Because it seems like the distribution is heavy on all Samuel Smith products I am guilty of overlooking this one too many times since then. This is a unique beer, malty, strong alcohol presence with some raisin and toast smells. Definitely in my book it is a strong beer chaser to straight Scotch. Don't pass up a chance to savor a full bottle of this beer and don't be afraid to take a wee dram of whiskey along with it.

500 mL bottle of 2012 vintage pours a hazed copper color with an ample off-white head. Modest retention and almost no lace.

Nose is raisins and minerals with a little bit of old wood, caramel, toast and fresh coconut flesh.

Taste is a smooth, fruity strong ale. More refined than most and goes down with incredible ease. The hard water gives it a little something for the complexity that most American Strong ales miss completely. Mouthfeel is surprisingly thin, though not a distraction at all. Its an excellent beer, bordering on great. I do have a problem with the pricing though, as mine was $14 for a 500 mL. Definitely worth getting once to try...maybe even another to put back for a few years - but as much as I like it, I will likely pass on it in the future. Just too much for my budget.
