obtained from Lone Star beverages - Coppell, TX
I should preface my review by saying that I was eagerly anticipating it and I saved it for a few days prior to a celebration
the beer pours the color of blackened burnt siena - beautiful, poured in a pint glass - 2 cm head - creamy, tan colored
Smell is one of bready, yeasty goodness
Taste - Guinness is good, but Samuel Smith's Stout is simply superior in every way, a stronger depth of flavor, sweetness, bitterness, smoother finish, carb-laden overtone bathes your taste buds (I feel like I can almost taste the oatmeal in it) - this beer makes me want to cancel a few things for 1-2 hours to encompass myself in it, this is the perfect meeting up with a best friend beer, or trying to impress an especially savvy woman beer - the kind of beer that speaks to the understanding of balance and perfection
mouthfeel - medium carbonation, light bitterness
Overall - a stout that makes you feel like you want to drink stouts all day, whereas I have always felt that stouts were situational, but this makes me feel that they can be unilaterally spectacular

A: Very dark color sporting a huge 3 finger head. The head recedes quite slowly.
S: Roasty malt smells. Some coffee and hint of espresso.
T: This is like all stouts with me - it is totally different as it warms. Extremely pleasant taste. Malts, coffee, toasted marshmallow, and slight booze taste (despite the low ABV)
M: Once warmed a bit this is amazing. Extraordinarily smooth and easy on the palate.
O: Patience is rewarded with this one. It is amazingly smooth and has a deep character that comes out more and more as it warms. Great beer that will be on my short list.
