Poured this beer from a 22oz bottle into a room temp rocks glass and shared with a red headed pisces female on a sunday evening in November at sea level in the eastern time zone.

This is my first experience with a Samuel Smith brew and it met all of the expectations that friends of mine had set..

Pours lovely with a one chubby finger head that dicipates to a lovely haze that coates your embrace with this very special brew..

Amazing nose of coffee, chocolate, and bread that are mild and balanced..

The taste is in complete haromony with the nose and the quality of craftsmanship was more evident with each fortunate sip. There is a mild bitter presence at the back of my tongue that is not at all unpleasant.. It almost keeps it where it needs to be.

The mouthfeel was the star of the show for me.. Leaving a suddle caramel coat that tastes thick on the outer tongue and fades gently to the center of my palate leaving only the finest of its characters as a trace..

Overall this beer is a treat.. I will definitely be purchasing this again and feel it was an amazing value as well.
