550ml bottle with a best before date if May 2014. Poured into a pint glass.
A- pours a black clear liquid with a reddish tinge, free of sediment, but so black its almost opaque. There is a thin pale brown head that quickly forms a lacing.
S- strong milk chocolate and vanilla odour. Smells like its full of cocoa.
T-dark chocolate with some coffee bean is apparent from the get go, and comes back strong towards the end. In the middle I thought i got a bit of roasted malts, but not for long. Long lingering choc aftertaste.
M- not as thick as some of Samuel Smith's other stouts. Medium carbonation for this style. Soapy texture.
O- more chocolatey than any other choc stout I've had. A bit too sweet for me as I had just had dessert, but this would be a great beer straight after a hearty meal.
