3.9/5 rDev -7.1%
Bottle served cold in glass beer challis
A) Deepest brown and thick with beige puffy head that settles down quickly. Impossible to see through, even when held to the light. Few bubbles are visible.
S) Sweet apple pie, burnt caramel, sour dough bread. This beer is lovely.
T) Surprisingly mild for such a thick, dark stout. Mild hops and sweet malt give way to - no surprise - milk chocolate, espresso and sweet toffee. Delicious!
M) I truly enjoyed this beer but felt here is where it comes up a bit short, at least for my taste. Sticky sweet and mild, but less carbonation than I prefer.
O) As noted I thought this Samuel Smith Organic Milk Stout is an excellent example of this style, and I enjoyed it. I would like to see more carbonation but note its certainly possible this bottle lost its fizz after its 1000 plus mile journey.

Poured a deep brownish red color with a nice thick creamy colored head which left excellent lacing covering the glass.
Smell to me was heavy with chocolate or coca beans.
Taste was outstanding. Like fine chocolate and malt. Cocoa beans leave a slight bitter aftertaste. A little more sweet than bitter but balanced quit nicely and that's how I like it.
Medium bodied beer. Not quite as heavy as I was expecting.
Overall, a well crafted beer which I enjoyed very much. One of The best beer I've ever had. Highly recommended.

Appearance: Dark Brown with a slight head and a little bit of lacing.
Smell: Very nice chocolate smell with a slight coffee note
Taste: Just like the smell very chocolate forward. Chocolate Milk comes to mind. Now I'm imagining the Nesquik Bunny
Mouthfeel: Not a heavy beer as color may imply, low carbonation.
Overall: A great finishing beer, how can you not smile when your drinking dessert.

I tried this beer after I had a Young's Double Chocolate Stout. It was merely "ok," in my not-so-humble. It smelled good, looked fine, poured well, but the taste was a bit underwhelming. I didn't feel like it had the chocolate taste the Young's had, and the bitterness at the back end overwhelmed the taste it did have.
I would definitely recommend the Young's over this one.
