Standard 1pt 6fl oz bottle into Sam Smith pint glass

A - the head forms very well, and is a nice cream color, beautiful all over lacing coats the glass. the color of the beer is enchanting: it is a ruddy brown, like an ox blood leather belt or pair of shoes, or a well worn leather chain in an old library, something that calls 'please sit in me, for I am incredibly comfortable,' or the likes

S - bitter hops jump out right in front, extremely aromatic. some toasted malts in the back, presenting a slight sweetness and a musty smell, simply great!

T - damn, thats how a beer should taste! this has been one of my favorites for a long time, and reviewing it with all care and attention I can really remember why. the foreground is a grainy taste, with some pinch of the hops. a small swallow allows an explosion of hops bursting all over, allowing a full complement to the malts and other grains used. the malts come out slightly more and in a light sweetness during the finish, the hops also at first pack a big punch, then they subside and let the residual sweetness reign in. the aftertaste is distinctively bitter with some graininess but not as much as the other parts of the drinking.

MF&D - smooth, crisp, refreshing, intoxicating. what more could I possibly ask for? this beer has a perfect consistency for the booze and flavour, and I rarely say that. well, I'm going to go review the oaked and double, so I'll find out if there is anything else I can ask for in this line of beer!
