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.

Got this in a sampler pack with the India Ale and Oatmeal Stout. Wouldn't have bought it on my own as I'm not much of a stout drinker. As printed on the bottle... smooth chocolate flavor, not very bitter. If that's your thing then it's a great beer. Just OK for me.

This is an excellent chocolate stout. Imagine boiling down chocolate chips and inhaling a big whiff of chocolate goodness - it is similar to the smell of SSOCS, with a hint of malt tossed in for good measure. The dark brown brew has a modest head that shrinks to a ring of small bubbles around the outside of my glass that remaining throughout the beer. The taste is lead by chocolate, and although it is excellent, there is a hint of something being off - a fake quality, but I am being very picky. Mouthfeel is Smooth and silky. An outstanding beer.

like carbonated chocolate milk, don't know if it would work as a desert beer on its own due to the over-carbonation but this paired phenomenally with alden's chocolate, chocolate chip ice cream.
