Poured 550mL bottle with foil wrapped top into 34oz mug. Oily brown pour, jet black in the glass with thick tan head that sticks around. Smell is creamy coffee with a bit of chocolate. Taste is like the smell; creamy and sweet at first, then roasted coffee and bitter chocolate, with a bittersweet finish. Mouthfeel is creamy and full. It's no wonder this is the top rated beer of its style on here.

4.2/5  rDev -0.5%

A- impressive, dark head with persistent lacing

S- fruity and sugary. hint of roasted malts. scent is similar to their imperial stout.

M- perfect amount of carbonation. smooth and somewhat thick.

T- sweet and sugary right away that fades away and the roasted malts kick in. roasted malts linger as the bread malts sneak in to pull everything together. dry in the finish.

O- lives up to the reputation of Samuel Smiths.
