Poured on draft to give a solid black body with a finger of thick, creamy head. There's only a faint aroma of chocolate that doesn't quite prepare you for the taste. The flavour is quite strong given the modest ABV, with roasted chocolate and coffee notes. The mouthfeel is thick and dry, as one would expect from the style.

This is definitely one of my favourite stouts; a solid offering from Samuel Smith's that makes a visit to one of their pubs well worth it (I believe it's only available on draft). It's the beer that other dry stouts wish they could be!
