Texas

4/5  rDev -5.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from the 550 ml bottle into a Guiness pint glass.

Appearance- Pours the typical dark stout black with a light tan fluffy head. Lots of chunky patches of lace.

Smell- First thing I thought of was that it had this odd sweet wine like scent. Not something I'm used to in stout. Typical stout scents are less prevalent. Odd.

Taste- Very tasty! Lots of nice sweet chocolatey taste. The roasty stout flavor is not found in this one. The sweetness replaces it I think. Some graininess is present. No trace of that wine-scent in the taste.

Mouthfeel- Thick and smooth. Almost no carbonation. Milk would be an effecive comparison.

Drinkability- As with all the Sam Smith's beers, this one is very easy to take nice big quaffs of! At 5% I could easily down a few pints of this one.

Overall- I'm a huge SS fan. This one isn't my favorite, but it lives up to my standards for this brewery. Not great but pretty good.

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.
