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.

Absolutely fantastic! It was an enjoyment to drink, perfectly balanced with sweet undertones of chocolate and the smoothness of a stout! I am not sure if there could be a better chocolate stout in the world. If someone has one that they think is better please suggest!

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.
