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.

WoW
That's all you really have to say about this beer . If your looking for a strong Chocolate flavor with a hint of coffee this is the beer for you. Man you really get hit with the chocolate with this beer, it's really almost a desert beer . I don't think I could drink more than one just because it's so rich, but after a nice meal it would work very well.

Taste like chocolate cake in a bottle and I fricken love chocolate cake. Me and my wife just can't get enough of it. There are times we drink this as a desert all on its own. So good I feel like I'm getting away with something every time I drink it. Truly a treat in a bottle.

A: It poor's a very dark brown almost black. It looks like a stout should.
S: It intensely smells of chocolate, chocolate cake, chocolate truffles, and coco. I love it.
T: Right off the bat, it is chocolaty and semi-sweet, it has a good malt character giving a it some roasted flavor, but the chocolate takes center stage here.
M: Full bodied and smooth. It has just the rite amount of carbonation to really compliment the great body of this beer. It is still a refreshing beer despite how dark it is, and is one that dose not leave any astringent feeling after it leaves the mouth. A great finishing beer with no bitter after taste. Perfect.
O:I am giving this beer a perfect score because it is by far the very best sweet/milk stout that i have ever had, and one of my all time favorite beers ever. I am fairly certain it will always be in my top 3 beers for as long as i live.

Dark, dark brown in appearance with a light head. Wonderful chocolate aroma. The taste was rich, creamy, & very chocolate. A little on the sweet side, but it went down well and I was wanting another. Wonderful beer. A very distinct stout like none I have had before.
