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.

4.7/5  rDev +12.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Live review. Poured from the 550 mL bottle that my brother in law Bruce bought at Save On Tobacco & Beverage in Mentor, Ohio about a month ago. He then gave it to me after a party that he hosted. Thanks Bruce! Price tag on the bottle cap announces "3.99." Stamp on neck of bottle indicates "SI27M1" although I do not observe a "best by" date anywhere on the bottle.

A Great medium brown two inch head over a ver dark body that glows a deep mahogany in front of direct light. Nice look. 4.0

S Gentle stout with nice milk chocolate sweetness. I don't know about anyone else, but this is the best "chocolate stout" smell that I have encountered. 4.5

T Great smell carries right over into the taste. Dark roast malt is classically prepared (I would not expect anything else from Samuel Smith/Tadcaster) and the chocolate is the perfect companion that it was meant to be in all of the chocolate stouts that I have had before this one. THIS is how it is supposed to be done. Bravo! 5.0

M Smooth as silk feel that slips over my tongue and down my throat with ease. That was not always experienced with other chocolate stouts. There is a slight "heat" of alcohol on the back of my tongue and a hint of bitterness but the chocolately smoothness wins over. 4.5

D/O Drinkability is incredibly good. Overall this is a world class Chocolate Stout. In keeping with my traditions, I have not read any other review. It will interest me to see what the BA community thinks. 4.5

4.14/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Dark brown with small head when poured in a Pint glass.
S: The weakest part for me. I'm getting licorice and vanilla.
T: Milk chocolate with hints of cream.
M: Low carbonation, smooth, creamy.
O: Good chocolate beer. That improves as you drink. Most chocolate stouts are heavier...so, like another reviewers stated, I would call it a light stout.
