Samuel Smith’s Imperial Stout

Name – Samuel Smith’s Imperial Stout
Country – England
Type – Russian Imperial Stout

Appearance – Pours a deep black color that shows some brown around the edges.  Big light brown head.

Smell – Sweet chocolate and toffee with some roasted coffee malt backing.  Slight alcohol burn to the nose.

Taste – The chocolate and roasted malts mix great on this.  Very smooth with a very small taste of alcohol at the end.

I’ve have always meant to try this and actually have had it on a few occasions but didn’t have my camera handy for pictures.  It always came highly recommended and I know why.  This is just a wonderfully done beer, which is not surprising coming from Samuel Smith.  The sweet and roasted flavors compliment each other very well and neither is overpowering of the other.  If not the best, one of the best Imperial Stouts I’ve ever had.

Overall Grade – A

    The Taddy Porter is probably my next choice to try from them.
