Samuel Smith Imperial Stout

Ratebeer 3.9 98th percentile
Beer Advocate A-

Taste +5

I truly am a sucker for a strong stout; if it's an imperial style even better. This one was a treat. The nose is fulfilling with huge whiffs of milk chocolate, licorice, roasted cocoa and molasses. Your taste is just like the nose; just add a creamy/smooth mouth feel and you got it. Oddly the finish is dry with bitter chocolate. Did I mention that you could pick out smoke and fruit hints?

Aftertaste +2

Your whole mouth and throat are coated with a sweet molasses burn that lasts longer than expected.

Alcohol Content +1 7%

You can smell and taste it with every raise of the glass.

Value +1

This is right up there with the best of the imperial stouts

Ingame Enhancement +1

I played a little GRID on PS3 tonight; booze is great for relaxing the twitch reflex when driving. Too much though and you need a lot of race restarts

Overall 10/10 BOOM HEADSHOT

Drink this beer often; enough said.
