Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

12 oz bottle into Hardywood Park tulip. cant seem to make out this bottle code...

A: pours a very dark brown hue. looks practically black in the glass. head is closer to a light brown than a white. retention is good as it remains throughout the entire drink. lacing is spotty.

S: wow this smells like chocolate milk. some lactose, but mostly tons of chocolate here. milk chocolate, not your typical dark chocolate/big stout nose. pretty one-note, but I don't even care.

T: flavor is super similar to the nose. boatload of milk chocolate, plenty of lactose to keep things light/sweet, even has a significant amount of residual sugar that leaves a Kalua-like flavor. which can turn a little medicinal after mulling it over on the pallet, but I may just be being picky.

M: mouthfeel is super mellow. let's the sweets do the talking. nice. medium bodied.

D: this is right up there with top chocolate milk/sweet stouts that I have had to date. a shade below Young's, but on par with Rogue's and ST (while not nearly being as big). certainly worth picking up if you can and if you are a fan of this style.
