Suprised to find Sammy Smith in brown bottles! Anyways, I pour it into my large tulip at about 48 degrees (F). It pours a chocolate brown color with a milky, tan, finger-thick head atop that sustains itself nicely.
At first sniff, the alcohol hits my nose pretty hard; suprising for a 7%-er. Caramel and chocolate are well-apparent here. A bit of bourbon also to note. Interesting but a bit tingly on the nose.
Flavors are full and rich. Chocolate hits my palate up front along with a bit of toffee and toasted nuts. Smooth and creamy body leads to a bit of tingly alcohol finish that leaves my palage a bit numb. A mild mochachino and coffee flavor is a nice afterflavor. Very tasty and nice on the palate.
Very drinkable tasty brew. I really enjoy their oatmeal stout, but this has taken over as my favorite of their offerings. I'm sure a few would warm me up on such a cold night in PA.
