3.85/5  rDev -8.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a decent creamy foamy 1/2 finger head that fades at a med pace with a bit of lacing, very dark essentially pitch black beer.

Nose is just all chocolate, candy chocolate, milk choc mostly, like Hershey candy bar, sine light cocoa nibs and bakers choc, hint of vanilla with it, little caramel, not much else.

Taste starts with creamy choc again, milk choc, little bakers choc, again that candy bar choc with lush melting choc, but also a little fake choc kinda taste, and a bit of a make syrup kinda thing as well, a bit strange. Light honey malt flavor, little caramel and candy syrup. A light earthy hop flavor and bitterness to. Finish is drier, little sticky though, lots if lingering cheap choc flavor, light earthy bittering hops.

Mouth is med bodied bit creamy and bit syrupy, fluffy carb.

Overall not bad but harder for new to drink since its pretty much just cheaper end chocolate candy bar flavor and very little beer, bust still tasty as a dessert.

This pours a very dark brown color with a foamy, light brown head. The aroma is sweet with chocolate and malt. The taste is robust and fairly light from lots of carbonation. It finishes very sweet leaving a lingering chocolate taste. This certainly leaves a different taste than beers brewed with cocoa. Overall, this was a pretty good desert style stout.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

I poured a bottle into a mug.

Appearance- Very dark brown color with two fingers worth of lingering tan head. Fair amount of patchy lace.

Smell- Strong aroma of chocolate.

Taste- Milk chocolate flavor with the faintest hint of roasted malt.

Mouthfeel- Full bodied, creamy, and very smooth. Very light amount of carbonation which goes great with this beer.

Overall- Fantastic beer! This is what all chocolate stouts and ales should aspire to. This definitely my new favorite.

4.19/5  rDev 0%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

12 oz. Brown bottle. Has complicated freshness date.

A: Pours dark brown, nice tan head. Great lacing and coaster thin head retention.

S: Sweet milk chocolate, sweet dark fruits. Some malts. Not too complex yet the
chocolate and fruit aroma is simply delightful.

T/M: Smooth, could use a little more carbonation. Creamy chocolate malts and
cocoa. Less sweet than the smell. Hops are small with little bitterness. Roasted
malts with hints of dark fruits.

O: Great tasting milk stout. A nice winter weather dessert stout. Possibly a little
too sweet, which makes it less of a session beer and more of a special occasion
beer.

Cheers!!!

4.98/5  rDev +18.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

12 oz bottle poured in a Stout glass.

Appearance - Mostly black with a nice but not overbearing brown head.

Smell - Very pungent and prominent chocolate/cocoa smell. One of my favorite smelling beers. Some stouts tend to be difficult to pick up a good scent on, but this is right in your face and it's just quite amazing.

Taste - chocolate...no two ways about it. maybe a little coffee/express in the finish. So delectable. My first time drinking this was favorable, but my 2nd purchase (a 4 pack) quickly made not only my favorite Samuel Smith variety, but also surpassed it as my favorite Chocolate Stout (the previous being Young's double chocolate..which is a fantastic stout in itself). It's certainly a dark chocolate flavor...one that you want to keep sipping until the glass is empty. Sometimes you feel bad you drank the whole thing without savoring it properly.

Mouthfeel - despite it's somewhat rich flavor and smell, it is a medium mouthfeel. Not overbearing or too filling. I wouldn't call it a session beer, but it's hard to resist having a couple in a row if you have enough available

Overall - A terrific representation of the style. I *love* this beer. It's one of those beers where you just bask in each sip and wish the glass was bottomless. There are a few beers which are hard to believe are even beers, and this is one of them. Samuel Smith is probably my favorite brewery period, and this is their best beer IMHO. That should say enough about how i feel about it

Poured into tulip, shared with The Lone Wolf.

A: Dark brown with 1 finger tan head, awesome retention and lacing.

S: Hot chocolate with marshmallows.

T: Chocolate Milk, oh, and marshmallows.

M: Little lighter than I expected.

O: This is the epitome of sweet stouts. Its a malted milk shake, chocolate and marshmallows in a beer form. One of my favorites and almost everyone would drink it. Non beer lovers would enjoy this beer.

Poured pitch black with a small tan coloured head.

The smell is milk chocolate, smells very nice. Would have been nice if it was a little stronger.

The taste is milk chocolate much the same as the smell.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a little prickly carbonation.

Overall the chocolate flavours are delicious but just a little bit weak. Would have like a bit more body as well.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured into a standard tumbler. Poured a black mostly opaque, with a thin light brown head, with occasional carbonation rising from the bottom. Aroma was chocolate, no two ways around it. Very similar to a Hershey's bar. Flavor was also chocolate. Sweet, with obvious chocolate, finishing with a bit of bitterness. A bit thin in the mouth, didn't coat as well as would be expected. Overall a great chocolate stout. Nothing overly bad about this beer, just needed a bit more chew to be stellar.

Way back, years and years ago, I remember picking up a Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout in Honolulu on a particular day. Clearly, it was a day cemented into my memory. That is about how long it's been since I've tried something from this brewery.

Very strong cocoa nose on this one. Flavor is heavy, in my face, cocoa laden chocolate. I put strong emphasis on the cocoa bit as it's quite pronounced. Probably a bit too much, honestly, as I would like a bit more actual chocolate character on the mix. But I can live with this. Definitely bringing something beyond the typical.

A=Pours a very dark brown color with a fluffy tan head
S=Sweet milk chocolate and cocao nibs, with a slight malty undertone. Smells sweet and delicious
T=Dark chocolate, not overly sweet which definitely adds to its drinkability. A bit of espresso in the finish.
M=lighter than expected, with a higher level of carbonation than i expected that distracts from the taste a little. Definitely a drinkable beer though
O=Sweet and delectable, a great beer to drink on a cold day by a fire.

4.34/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours a dark brown with some redish highlights, ample cap of tan froth, good lacing. Scent leads right away with melted Hershey's chocolate bar - semi-sweet, milk chocolate - faint notes of fruitiness and malt only other notes detected. Taste back again with the melted milk chocolate candy bar, some dark roasted and toasted malts, notes of fruit, light herbal note. Fuller side of medium bodied, smooth and creamy. There are some chocolate stouts that have an artificial, tootsy roll like quality and some big, bad stouts with full on decadent, dark chocolate. This guy picks a familiar middle ground and succeeds beyond my expectations.

4.24/5  rDev +1.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours a deep, dark brown to black color with two big fingers of beige head that holds on for awhile. The chocolate in the nose is exquisite! The only bad things about the smell being so distinctly chocolate is that it pumps up the expectation of chocolate in the flavor profile. Unfortunately, the chocolate flavor is muted in comparison to the nose.

In addition to the chocolate, there is some roasted malt flavors, but not as much as I might like (even in a milk stout). There is a sweet touch on the finish which is very nice, indeed.

4.26/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A - black with a thin, brown head that has good retention

S - huge chocolate aroma, pure cocoa and bittersweet chocolate

T - also huge chocolate and cocoa flavors, some faint roasted malts, some very faint bitterness in the finish

M - medium bodied, smooth, creamy, faintly crisp, well carbonated

This was delicious! It was incredibly chocolatey with a full-flavor and fantastic drinkability. I was very impressed by this beer. On top of all that it has a low enough ABV to make it sessionable. This is definitely a stout I would buy again.

3.88/5  rDev -7.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Appearance. A vigorous pour reveals a deep, dark brown beer with almost three fingers of creamy tan head that leaves some great lacing behind.

Smell. Big sweet creamy chocolate. Remind me a little of Quick powder from when I was a kid. Maybe a little dark malt, but the sweet chocolate pretty much pwns this one.

Taste. Tons of milk chocolate goodness with a slight lactic tang. There's some darker malts, a bit of a metallic taste in there, and a slightly grassy, lightly bitter finish.

Mouthfeel. A little thin with that sweetness at below medium bodied, with below medium carbonation.

Overall. This started out great with sexy looks and an awesome smell but the taste and mouthfeel didn't hold up. Good stuff, but I probably won't buy it again.

Finally came upon this one at a local bottle shop. 16oz. bottle into a Brooklyn Brewery snifter. Shared with schen9303. Reviewed from notes.

Pours a light coffee colored 1 finger head with moderate retention. Beer is opaque and pitch black though pretty thin. Spotty lace with good stick and thin legs. Pretty.

Nose is lactose, milk chocolate, sweet cream. Moderately aromatic, appetizing and very appropriate.

Opens chocolate, cream cane sugar. Lactose and sweet cream in the middle with cocoa powder at the finish. Some subtle roasted malt too. Aftertaste is milk chocolate and sweet cream. Enjoyable.

Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Prickly but pretty smooth in the mouth. A touch thin and a bit too carbonated. Goes down smooth with some bubbles. Messy finish with a slightly lingering aftertaste.

Pretty solid milk stout that is very true to its name. Probably one of the most chocolatey stouts out there without being overly sweet... which is quite an accomplishment (just ask Southern Tier!) A bit too thin and carbonated but I'd love to try this from cask. Enjoyable and worth trying.

4.91/5  rDev +17.2%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5

Poured into a 1 pint Tulip glass.

A: Pours black into the tulip with 1-finger's worth of medium brown head. Lace is medium to stiff. Stays on the top of the glass, but slowly withdraws.

S: Can I "capitalize" CHOCOLATE? Actually, it's nose is cocoa-smelling with a hint of coconut.

T: Taste is tremendous. I can describe the taste as very meaningful chocolate taste without being overly sweet. I've tasted some chocolate stouts that really make your brain think that you're drinking a Snickers. This one you can taste the malt and just a bit of the hops, along with the CHOCOLATE. Truly a dessert beer.

M: Feel is much lighter than the other chocolate stouts I've tried. It's a pleasure to drink. It doesn't overwhelm like it's competitors.

O: Overall, this is an excellent beer, really decent when the snow is flying and you're all dressed up in flannel and bunny slippers.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Again, like Rogues Double Chocolate (which I had on the same evening), the smell seems "too forced." The taste is less bitter / "easier" than Rogue's (though that's not necessarily a good thing, as this was sort of like a sweet Miller Lite); but the aroma here was more artificial than Rogue's (sort of like the difference between scent of chocolate milk and the chocolate chemical scent of Yoohoo).

A: Thinner look than most stouts. Dark cola, but watery. Off-whtie head. Good lacing remains. Suds on sides drop quick. Yellow-green tint along rim of glass, having an almost golden raisin appearance. Cool bottle (for whatever that's worth).

S: Cookie dough and flour. Think Snickerdoodle; or more accurately, those funky cookies that I only see around the holidays that are made of egg whites and have chocolate chips in them. Heavy notes of vanilla, maybe too much. Whipped cream. Black & tan sundae (choco/marshmallow toppings). But again, as the experience wore on, the smell became a distraction -- not the way Rogues was (where the sweet smell was off-kilter with the bitter taste); but because it was just too artfcal -- "chocolate" in the same dubious sense you'd claim Count Chocula was actually chocolate.

T: Almost like a diet chocolate faygo or somethng. Flimsy, artificial. Not necessarily "bad", just a bit disconcerting. More like a chocolate Miller Lite than a stout. Needs some more guts. The taste was just too sweet, even for a sweet/milk stout; one-dimensional.

M: Simple. No dislikes. Had a light lager swish, semi-sweet aftertaste. VERY easy to drink (other than the aroma that became pretty distracting over time). Thinner (again, think Miller Lite).

O: As one reviewer aptly stated, the goal is a little chocolate added to the beer; not beer added to the chocolate. Maybe it's because I had this and Rogues Double Chocolate back to back, but I see them as the mirror image in some respects: Rogues being a little too hairy (at least for the misleading sweet smell), this one not being hairy enough That said, it's an easy quaffer -- and better to drink in bigger gulps than small sips (because that keeps the "nose hits" fewer and further between.

Repeat? A 4-pack (which is what I bought) is fine. I'm glad I tried it, and I'll come back to it as a point of reference or out of curiosity over the next few weeks I'm sure. I'd also be eager to share with friends, to see what they thought. But alas, the thought of drinking 2 in a single sitting makes my ill to even think about... Yuck!

Where Ideal? Pre-party; tasting where you're sampling lots of milk/sweet stouts. A birthday party where there will be cake...

4.51/5  rDev +7.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

The beer pours a dark muddy brown, and sits in the glass as black with a very dirty white/tan head full of rocky bubbles that sit at about a quarter of a fingers’ width. In the light this beer has a dark murky body with a mahogany hue. The beer’s lacing is thin and slippery dry, leaving splotches of foam on the sides of the glass. On the nose, the beer smells of chocolate cocoa powder with a caramelly, milk chocolate smoothness to the smell. There is also a very faint tartness to the back of the smell as well as a touch of creamy coffee and roasted malt. On the tongue, the beer tastes sweetly rich and creamy with milk chocolate goodness. The taste begins with sweet and slightly tart chocolate covered raisins, though the fruit flavor is light. This opens into warm and rich milk chocolate flavors with touches of roast and sweet creamy caramel. The finish is long with the creamy chocolate and caramel and though the after taste is very light with roast malt and a watery feeling. On the mouth, the beer feels medium in body with a bit of a thicker finish. It is rich and creamy and velvety on the tongue. The mouth is left clean, coated with a slight sticky sweetness. Overall, this beer is delicious. This is the first chocolate beer I can comfortably say that they have nailed the chocolate flavor on. I’ve liked others. This beer perfects it. Creamy milk chocolate with some lovely subtleties and complexities. This beer is a must try.

Poured slightly chilled into a pint glass.

Pours an extremely dark brown as to be black with half inch tan head that quickly recedes with light lacing.

Wow, chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate aroma.

Very strong flavor of chocolate with hint of vanilla.

Heavy mouthfeel with light carbonation and sweet and creamy finish.

Overall a good beer. Easily the beer with the heaviest chocolate flavor I've had to the point of being a bit cloying. If you love chocolate this is the beer for you.

500 mL bottle pours a medium brown color with good clarity and a tight-bubbled tan head. Average retention and lacing.

Nose is cocoa nibs, semi-sweet chocolate chips and vanilla beans. Smells good...rich and decadent with almost pudding/yogurt lactose.

Taste is like yogurt covered cocoa nibs with maybe a light dusting of cocoa powder. Man, Sam Smith's has come up with another winner here. A moderate fruitiness like strawberries and red grapes adds a little complexity to it. It’s nice...I wasn’t expecting the beer to be as flavorful as it is. Definitely has a yogurt-esque sharpness to it that is really different...though it is more vanilla than chocolate. I’d buy it again, very cool brewski.

Pours dark brown with a 3 finger foamy tan head. Has good retention and lacing. Smells just like Hershey's Chocolate Syrup and cocoa.

Tastes just like it smells: Hershey's Chocolate Syrup and cocoa. Sweet without any bitterness for balance, which is not a problem at all. In this case, it is nice to not have any bitterness.

Medium bodied with modest carbonation. Smooth and easy to drink. It is nice to have a beer with 5% abv have so much flavor. Definitely need to have this again.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

I've tried this beer in several ways now: At a tasting, in a beer float, and finally by itself.

Appearance: It has a lot of small bubbles and poured with a thick head. A smaller head remained well after pouring. It was very hard for light to penetrate through it but regardless, I could tell the beer was mostly clear. The foam at the top was a light beige.

Aroma: Right away I could smell the roasted malt followed by vanilla and dark chocolate. Smell was on the stronger side and there was a slight hop smell in the background.

Flavor: If you want a chocolate beer, this is the beer to be drinking. It's sweet, but not like sugary sweet it's like dark chocolate sweet, especially in the nose. At the back of the throat through the finish hops can be detected as well as the roasted-ness. It also had nutty notes and kind of reminded me of sweet tarts at some point.

Mouthfeel: This is where the beer is lacking. I like my stouts to be really thick and I felt it was on the thin side. The amount of bubbles I could feel was nice, but it made me crave more hoppiness or bitterness.

Overall: This beer is awesome... BUT! Personally, the lack of bitter and hop characteristics set it back for me. Because of that, I feel it was a little off balance. It also left me wanting a thicker body and an overall stronger flavor.

550 ml bottle.

Appearance: Black, mostly opaque with good looking off white head and some decent lacing.

Smell: Lots of sweet milk chocolate. So much that if I smelled it blindly I might not know its beer. It does smell good, but the chocolate is a bit overpowering.

Taste: Like the smell, the flavor is super chocolatey. Unlike the smell, there are also other beer-y elements that make this a really good chocolate stout. There's some roasty flavors and a touch of dark chocolate. Mostly sweet, but some bitterness and roast in the finish really rounds this out.

Mouthfeel: Remarkably soft, smooth, and creamy. Amazing that this is only 5%.

Overall: A very nicely done and sessionable chocolate stout. Better than Youngs.

I'm a big fan of Chocolate stouts, and this one was one of the best I've had.

In a nutshell, it reminded me of a more sessionable version of Southern Tier's Choklat.

Looked very appealing with a fluffy head and nice lacing.

Very nice aromas of Hershey syrup and cream. More chocolatey than I was expecting.

Taste was sweet, milk chocolate.

Light carbonation kept the beer from being too cloying.

Overall, I like this as a sessionable counterpart to Choklat. I'd buy it again.
