The second best beer from the Samuel Smith's brewery.

Great taste, great look and a clean finish.

Looks dark orange/amber and opaque with a thick tan head from an aggressive pour. The scent is sweet and almost reminds me of dark candied fruits along with some caramel. The flavor is sweet and caramel malt but very well balanced and gentle. Just the slightest amount of a bitter ending. This beer is thinner than I thought it was going to be and doesn't have a lot of carbonation.

Smell is mostly malt and nuts, with caramel scent also present. Taste is very consistent, with roasted nuts as the main component. A pleasant aftertaste lingers after the mouthful, but beer is perfectly carbonated and is not dry.

Not sure why I waited so long to try this beer, it is very good and is one of the best beers I have tried in awhile.

Pours a beautiful dark amber color. Lots of carbonation on the pour that quickly goes away. Smells very sweet, more of a hazelnut, although it's very light. Tastes very very sweet. It's different, not what I expected but it's very good.

Pours brown and leaves the same colored body that gives a spectacular one finger foamy off white head. Some nice spotty foamy lacing is observed. The body is too dark for any carbonation to be seen rising; the aroma has a fair amount of nuts, caramel malts up front, hops slightly in the background; the flavor is exactly the same; its fairly easy on the palate with a good creaminess all around; overall well worthy to come back to.
