DATE: December 15, 2016... OCCASION: Truly in the Christmas spirit after the LVR chorus/band concert, I toast their efforts with a winter welcomer... GLASSWARE: Samuel Smith pint... pours a fizzing three fingers of chunky, cratered brown head that sits atop a jet-black body... lacing is attractively etched in camo designs... a robust blast of cocoa begins the profile, with a toasted malt sense and peat that evokes scotch... some alcoholic phenols escape... the first sip scorches with heat at the throat, but softens to a warm, pleasant aftertaste... a cola consistency prevails, with an oily entrance and a milky end... cocoa, yes, and subtle vanilla, lactic hints of milk, peat and some earthy vegetable...the flavor profile is solid, not spectacular... creates a taut, enjoyable experience that is not as much of a punch as advertised...
