Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: rangerred on 10-16-2012

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.

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.
