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.

Although I am new to the beer world. When first opening this organic chocolate stout. Immediately I can smell the deep dark chocolate and a slight coffee hint.
Pouring in the glass the body is very dark almost black in color, the head a very nice tan color that lingers for quite a few minutes. A little remnants linger along the side of the glass.
When first tasting this i immediately am struck with a strong dark chocolate flavor. It is almost hard to detect a coffee flavor but i think it is slightly present. Now the fun part, although the beer has a strong and dark chocolate tasteyou wouldn't expect the beer to have a sweetness to it but it certainly does so it is very pleasant to drink. This would make a wonderful after dinner beer. I would definitely buy another bottle of this.

The initial taste was the usual hops but the chaser of chocolate and creamy goodness was exactly what I was looking for.

Very dark appearance, thick creamy head, wonderful chocolate smell, milky but clean mouthfeel.

This is a great tasting beer with all the aspects of a chocolate stout with a hint of roasted coffee. A definite recommend.

Delicious. Perfect balance. Sweet, but not cloying. I wish I had more.
