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.

550mL bottle served in a pint glass
A good looking stout but the looks are really just the beginning with this one. The aroma is an incredible mix of vanilla and chocolate with really not much of anything else I'd expect in a beer. The chocolate and cocoa totally dominate the flavor as well this almost seems more like hot cocoa (especially as it warms) than beer. Along with the chocolate is a sweet smooth creaminess that is just so satisfying, maybe there is some malt in there but if anything it's only providing backing to the rest of what's in this one. I'm quite happy to have given this a try, it's the best milk stout I've ever had and it is probably what a milk stout should taste like.
