Pours a clear brown with an off-white head.

Smells of hazelnut, cream, a little butterscotch.

Taste is subtle, similar to the nose, is nutty, hazelnut I pick up the most, with notes of cream and toffee, fairly sweet to start. Bitterness takes on a very astringent tone for the aftertaste and overpowers the end. For 5% ABV the alcohol is poorly hidden, and shows up in full force as it goes down.

Medium body, smooth feel, leaves clean.

Poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass. Pours a very clear fairly dark brown, with a nice fluffy, tan two finger head. Little retention and lacing. Aroma was kinda slight, with a bit of toffee, caramel, and nutty notes. Just a faint hint of sweet malty aroma. Flavor was nutty, like hazelnut, almost like Nutella with half the the chocolate missing. Mouthfeel was pretty thin, but very smooth and silky, went down very nicely. Overall, quite a nice beer, what you'd expect from a great brewery like Samuel Smith's.
