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.

I do not have an educated palate but am slowly learning.

Poured into a snifter.

A - beautiful dark brownish black color with a small head that dissipates quickly.
S - Heavenly chocolate - absolutely delightful. There is no doubt about whether there is chocolate in this beer.
T- Oh my goodness, tastes absolutely yummy. Chocolate with a LOT of creaminess.
M - Very, very smooth with just the right amount of carbonation.
O - I had no idea chocolate stout could be so wonderful. I am definitely going to get more ... and on top of it all, it's organic! Can't beat that. This is a lovely beer and is definitely my new favorite.

8/20/13 Update... this is still my very favorite beer. I am hesitant to try other Chocolate Stouts (and I have) because the are a disappointment when compared to the Organic Chocolate Stout. I love this beer!

I had 2 bombers. The first was flat... No head, no mouth feel... The second had a half finger head decent mouth feel. The scent was like chocolate candy. Flavor was extremely sweet and chocolatey. Great dessert beer. Maybe a nice cigar would blend well with the cocoa sweetness. Hope to get my hands on it again.
