Velvety dark coffee brown with a creamy tan head. The nose has that distinct Sam Smith sweet yeast smell, along with sweet roasted malts. Taste is smooth, moderately sweet, with mellow roasted malts throughout. Also some fruitiness (like all SS beers). Delicious. Good smooth feel, if maybe a tad watery. Very drinkable; I just wish it was cheaper!

12 oz. bottle, served slightly chilled in a goblet. Pours black with ruby tinges and it's topped with a 1/2 inch tan head that doesn't leave much lace, but I was swirling the beer a bunch also. Smells like apples, banana pudding, chocolate, coffee, raisins, yeast, and lots of sweetness. The taste is the same but with a hint of alcohol and some piney/citric hops whose bitterness appears more as the beer warms. The body is full and smooth with medium carbonation and the beer itself is a top-notch brew.

16 ounce single from Lake Wales ABC - enjoyed to celebrate International Stout Day. This is a near perfect stout with deep flavors and creamy feel. Went down fast, but it's OK because of the relatively low alcohol content.
