Samuel Smith Yorkshire Stingo
Samuel Smith Yorkshire Stingo over to my house to share. The beer pours a caramel color with a thin filmy off-white colored head. The aroma consists of oak, caramel, raisin, pepper, and fig. The taste is sweet and smooth with a bit of a carbonation bite to it. The sweetness contains some raisin, fig, and caramel. There is a dry oaky finish that is really complimentary of the entire beer. The alcohol content is 8.0% ABV. This beer was greatly helped by the oak accents, as otherwise I would have thought it to be too sweet. However, it was nicely balanced and very well done that left a great flavor in the mouth.
