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.

A- Pleasant foamy head rapidly recedes leaving a ring around my stout glass. Dark brown to black in color with some limited visible effervescence.

S- Chocolate!!! Not your average quality chocolate either, this smells rich and real.

T- Not sure if "heavenly" is a helpful descriptor but this is full on dessert in a glass. The chocolate is certainly out front on the palate but it isn't cloyingly sweet to me.

M- At 5% ABV I was concerned that this would be thin in comparison to the imperials I usually gravitate towards but it packs a nice balance of fullness and fizzy life. The chocolate coats the mouth in a pleasant way.

O- I'm having a very difficult time trying to figure out why this shouldn't be in my fridge at all times. It's a really pleasant weeknight beer in a pint plus size. The fact that it's low ABV allows you to slam it without concern of feeling it in the morning. It would also be an enjoyable night cap after a weekend day spent drinking high ABV DIPA's etc.

Dark brown color , nice brown head. Strong aroma of milk chocolate. Chocolate and coffee in taste. Decent and pleasant bitterness in taste . Long aftertaste of bitter dark chocolate. That was what i expected from chocolate stout
