Half a 550 ml into a pint glass. My first Stingo, bottled in 2010, so a few years on it. From open, pour, and throughout the first glass, the aroma is amazing. Very precise smell, won't forget it. Taste is so mellow and sweet, very smooth. Not much to not like about this. Cheers!

Cloudy, almost dirty amber; nice, root beer like, beige head. Rich apple cider aroma and hints of sour dough. Very distinctive flavor; the oak is noticeable, spices, grapes, no bitterness, smooth and malty, excellent. Leaves the mouth a little dry, but no unpleasantly bitter. Overall outstanding.

A little cloudy... but great color... dark amber

Subtle on the nose... honey sweet and a bit musky

Love the flavor... malty... burnt caramel... a nice journey

Well balanced in mouth... medium/heavy in body... smooth and velvety... easy to drink

I am not a big fan of IPA's or other hoppy beers... I really like this style

This is right up there in my top ten

[Suggested Glassware: Snifter]

The pour was a murky chestnut brown with some red highlights and a small (less than 1 finger) off white creamy head that diminished rather quickly, leaving behind basically nothing in the way of head or lacing.

The aroma was of a toasted light bread malt and a sweet yeast with hints of caramel, toffee, dark fruit (plums & cherries), a mild odor of oak cask and a light alcohol tinge.

The taste was malty sweet with a touch of caramel and toffee from the get go, progressing with a moderate fruitiness, a hint of oak and a light alcohol finish. The flavor lasted an average time following the swallow, with a nice candi sweet taste left lying on the palate for just a bit longer.

Mouthfeel was almost medium in body with a dry yet syrupy texture and a very soft carbonation.

Overall this was a very tasty and delectable brew. It possessed a very nice balance, which obviously helped in hiding the high ABV that this beer possesses. On top of that it was the first brew I have had from Samuel Smith's that was over 5% ABV...
