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...

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.
