Availability: Year-round

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.

Bottle to tulip.

A. Very dark brown, almost black, with a frothy, brown, thick head. The head retreats to a fine bubble rim. Some light spotty laces. Has a medium viscous appearance.

S. Not too much. Mild fragrance of chocolate and dark roasted barley.

T. Slightly sweet, borderline too sweet as it builds as you drink. Major notes of chocolate, malted milk balls, dark barley. Some hops at the end.

M. Very smooth, fine/high carbonation, full body.

O. A good sweet stout, reminiscent of a milk stout. Too sweet for my taste. And not a sweetness because its a big beer and some leftover sugars that didn't make it to alcohol. The chocolate is very apparent.
