Postmortem Brew Review
Dark brown color; solid.
Malty chocolate roasted pungent aroma.
Foamy tan head that lasts to the bottom of glass.
Chocolaty taste with loads of malt flavor.
Medium carbonation
Medium bodied mouth feel. Smooth and delicious 

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
There is no doubt that Samuel Smith's is one of the top brewers from England. "Taddy" did not disappoint one drop.

On this Father's Day, I wished to pay honors to fathers, past and present. And presently, I drank this one in honor of my "English" roots for my grandfather on my dad's side of the family. He would have likely approved of this selection.

This was my starter for my Father's Day tribute, and I wish it had been the dessert.  It is rich and roasty.  There are wonderful flavors of chocolate and even toffee in the background.

Tip one of these in honor of your dad.
