Poured into nonic pint

A: Pours an opaque black, that shows hints of deep brown when held up to light. Very fine, khaki, 2 finger head with crazy amounts of ring lacing.

S: Dark chocolate, sweet malts and hints of earthiness.

T: Roasted malt goodness! Sweet and smooth with hints of bittersweet chocolate and dark roasted coffee beans. Earthy flavors finish with slight roasted bitterness and a slight acidity.

M: Smooth as silk and not at all heavy in the mouth. Low carbonation.

O: One killer stout. Sam Smiths shines as a world-class brewery with this one. I usually pick this up as a treat once in a while, but I could have this all the time and continue to love it day after day. Highly recommended, even for people who don’t favor the black stuff.
