Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: rangerred on 10-16-2012

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.

P: 550ml bottle into a perfect pint glass.

A: Pours an opaque black with the tiniest hint of ruby highlights. A creamy two finger dark tan head floats on top. Lacing is very good.

S: An intense milk chocolate aroma dominates your nose. Not much else.

T: A lot like the aroma, you've got a heavy milk chocolate flavor. The beer is quite sweet but there is some bitterness to keep it from being cloying. There's a little dark roasted malt in the finish. It's quite tasty if you're into chocolate, if you're looking for complexity this won't be your beer.

M: Thick and creamy, carbonation is moderate. It coats your mouth with a nice milk chocolate flavor that lingers a bit. In many ways it reminds me of a glass of chocolate milk.

O: I picked this beer up out of curiosity. I'm a big fan of Samuel Smith's stouts and porters and figured this one was worth a try. It's not complex in terms of aroma or flavor, it's all about the chocolate and it does that well. Easy to recommend to someone who enjoys chocolate, but it would never be my go to chocolate stout.
