VVV

Sam Smith “Tadcaster” Yorkshire Stingo (UK) – Very deep, very dark, very intense. An absolute wallop of a brew, but without the food-like fatigue of a Stout; there’s something vivid and vibrant here. For my palate, this is just about the most interesting thing Sam Smith has ever made. (11/11)

TN: The rock

[bottle]St. Peter’s Old-Style Porter (UK) – Seems lighter than it is, with a fine blend of burnt cappuccino/chocolate flavors, some bitterness, and sun-warmed, recently-harvested wheat and hay. Quite persistent. It seems lighter than it might be, but maybe my expectations are off. (2/07)
