Yummy...like Guinness on steriods.
A: Very dark red..nearly black...as it should be. Oh my....talk about head retention and lacing. This is awesome. The hallmark of good beer. Good head retention and lacing on a clean glass. This beer has it.
S: Very slight hop/malt mix on the nose. Not very strong and it shouldn't be.
T: Awe...light coffee and chocalate flavor...perfect. A tad hoppy but very good. Malt taste is there in good proportion.
M: I've never had a beer with such mouthfeel. This is an awesome beer in this regard. This is why I gave it a 5 in mouthfeel. Wonderful.
D: Very good. I mean I couldn't down these all night like a light lager or pils but it sure is a fine beer and very drinkable. Above average here.
Overall: It's true(as I've been told) Samuel Smith makes the highest quality brews. And this is one of them. Like Stout? Try this one.

4.24/5 rDev +0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
Look: A Very deep dark brown. Poured into a snifter it appears almost black. Into a pint, it may appear a but more brown, I think. Big fluffy, cream colored head which is retains fairly well.
Smell: Oats, dark roasty malts. A somewhat sugary, creamy smell to it.
Taste: Smooth and sweet, with an oaty, maltiness to it, and a slight bitter finish to it.
Feel: This is excellent. VERY smoothy and creamy texture. The carbonation is just right.
Overall: Excellent beer. Last time I drank this was as dessert after a Steak topped with blue cheese crumbles, so I remember it being sweeter the previous time I had it.
