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.

bought this at the new local wine and brew shop:
poured from the 22 oz bomber into my new belgium goblet:

A BEAUTIFUL show on the pour. nice 3 finger head. ZERO clarity - pours dark like cola.

S choco- heaven to the nose. nice malty choclate

T seems to me this one is all about the nose, comes with a rather UNpleasant bitter bite on the palate

thick and creamy

D low on the drinkability - this one is a sipper
also the buzz was conspicuously absent!
