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.

3.98/5  rDev -5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Glass Used: Tumbler pint

Appearance: Deep brown, almost opaque. Only a shimmer of light is seen when held to a light source. Thick tan foamy head with good lacing.

Smell: Creamy sweet milk chocolate and lots of it. Hints of caramel.

Taste:Full on chocolate with some malt in there. Finished with a bit of bitterness.

Mouthfeel: With the smell and taste, I thought it was going to have a sticky feel to it but it didn't. Light body and carbonation.

Overall: If you want a chocolate stout, this should be on your list. An excellent chocolate offering with minimal secondary flavors that could take away from what this is. A very well done chocolate stout. I would definitely buy this one again and again.

Serving type: bottle
