Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: rangerred on 10-16-2012

Brewed with well water (the original well, sunk in 1758, is still in use with the hard water is drawn from 85 feet underground), the gently roasted organic chocolate malt and real organic cocoa used in this ale impart a delicious, smooth and creamy character, with inviting deep flavours and a delightful finish - this is the perfect marriage of satisfying stout and luxurious chocolate that will lead to smiles and refills. Samuel Smith's brews in traditional coppers, uses stone 'Yorkshire Squares' for fermentation, and ships every bottle from the brewery with great pride.

Poured into an IPA glass.
A - Pours black with a tan head that settles to a cap.
S - First I caught the aroma when I opened the bottle. So much chocolate off the top of the bottle.
T - Sweet and chocolatey. Most chocolate flavored beers lean toward the dark chocolate side. This is the closest I've tasted to a milk chocolate flavor in beer. You could pour this over ice cream.
M - Nice chewy mouth feel, chocolate flavor coats your mouth and lasts a long time.
O - One of the best chocolate beers I've ever tasted. Can't believe I waited this long.

A moderate pour from the 550 ml bottle into a shaker pint glass produces about an inch of tan colored head that proves fairly sticky. The beer is a very dark ruddy brown.

Plenty of chocolate aromas and flavors, along with a little dark fruit and a little biscuit. Maybe a touch of brown sugar somewhere. A dark fruit tang combines with the chocolate to produce a chocolate covered cherry effect. The mouth feel is rather thin for a stout, but it works with this beer.

This is an excellent beer and another winner from Sam Smith 's. Reasonably priced at only 3-something for the bottle.

Wow,,,,very nice. The scent and taste scream milk chocolate. The muthfeel is a bit lacking as it would be nice if it were a bit more creamy. The color is opaque with offwhite head that is lacing. Overall.....very nice.

Amazing. If you like chocolate stouts or anything to do with chocolate and beer, please, at least do me the favor, and seek this one out. Absolutely amazing. Smells like you were stuffing your nose in cocoa and tastes just like the smell only better. It's 5% so it won't knock you off your rocker but it'll go down easy and you'll want more. Get it if you see it, don't tthink twice.

I was really excited for this one, but it somehow left me questioning if chocolate and beer were meant to be together.
