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.
