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.

Stunning chocolate stout with an unbelievable fudgey taste of fresh milk/dark chocolate. The aroma is highly indicative of the flavor to come with the first velvety sip of this unique concoction. If you love flavor enriched richer beers, Samuel Smith is your guy. Any beer that comes from this brewery is guaranteed to be just as described on the label. This is hands down the best and most true to taste chocolate stout on the market. This is a slow sipping sweet brew that is to be savored and enjoyed slowly. Great for the fall or a cool summer night.
