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.

4.59/5  rDev +9.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 550ml bottle into a stemmed tulip glass.

A: Dark brown with a maroon hue, can see thru at the edges, clear; Light mocha colored head, sudsy and falls quickly to creamy collar and nice lacing.

S: Woah, big sweet nose; milk chocolate, biscuits and bread, toffee; loads of gently roasted malts.

T: Dominated by milk chocolate and cocoa; toasted malts, biscuits, bread; a wonderful sweet malt character. Hints of toffee and molasses.

M: Medium body and carbonation; big, thick, creamy. Impressive given the meager 5% ABV.

O: This beer creates incredible depth of flavor and body on a modest grain bill which is truly impressive. A great beer with loads of sweet milk chocolate and bready, toasted malts.
