Commercial Description

Some of the oak casks at Samuel Smith’s date back more than a century with the individual oak staves being replaced by the Old Brewery coopers over the years. Gradually the casks soak in more & more of the character of the ale fermented in stone Yorkshire squares. Yorkshire Stingo is aged for at least a year, matured in these well-used oak casks in the brewery’s underground cellars deriving fruit, raisin, treacle toffee, Christmas pudding and slight oaky flavours, before being further naturally conditioned in bottle.

    [Suggested Glassware: Snifter]

    The pour was a murky chestnut brown with some red highlights and a small (less than 1 finger) off white creamy head that diminished rather quickly, leaving behind basically nothing in the way of head or lacing.

    The aroma was of a toasted light bread malt and a sweet yeast with hints of caramel, toffee, dark fruit (plums
