Availability: Year-round

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.

I cracked this open while watching Jake Peavy's successful debut for Boston. Before I even poured it, the profound chocolate aroma hit me hard, mainly consisting of cocoa and a hint of milk chocolate.

As for appearance, well, it looks like a stout - black with a nice ring of head that eventually evolves into a nice ring of lace around the glass.

Tastes great - chocolate malt at the forefront with a bit of roastiness to it. A strong cocoa aftertaste is welcomed. Sweet and somewhat syrupy. I can't believe it's only 5% ABV due to all the deep, complex flavors here. Chocolate cake in a glass.

This is the perfect dessert beer, and the standard for chocolate stouts. I may have to pick more of this up for the holidays.
