4.34/5  rDev +5.9%

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...

4.23/5  rDev +3.2%

Appearance: pours a cloudy brown color with a 1" head that slowly falls to a spotty surface foam.

Smell: loads of caramel, wood tones, and malt rise from the glass.

Taste: big malt presence with some toffee, wood tones, dark fruit sweetness, and a mild bitterness.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Crisp to start, less crisp at the finish. The flavors linger on the tongue for a bit.

Overall: a great English ale that is easy to drink and full of flavor. Nice change of pace from the world of hop centric beers.
