3.1/5  rDev -24.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured into a Sam Smith pint glass (but of course!)

A: Pours a beautifully clear dark amber color, with a foamy two-finger light mocha colored head with mediocre retention and decent lacing.

S: Some caramel, toffee, and a bit of nuttiness. Plain and simple, I like the way it smells.

T: Truth be told, I'm not always a fan of the malt profile in most amber/brown ales, and this is no exception. Very biscuity flavor to me, and almost reminiscent of sourdough bread. Still, there is a touch of nuttiness on the back end which I like, and of course, the mineral-y hard water taste typical of Sam Smith beers.

M: Light carbonation, and honestly, it feels a bit flat and watery in the mouth. Could use a little less dryness in the finish. It reminds me of an Irish Stout in the mouth, which means A) I'm not blown away by its feel, and B) it would be a lot better on tap.

O: Not a big fan of this, to be frank, though I don't hate it at all. Probably my least favorite Samuel Smith beer to date, and not something I'd willingly go for in the future, unless I caught it on draft.
