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.

Yum !! Very nice chocolate taste but the beer does not feel like super sweet or dessert like, well maybe a little bit. Refreshing, like the large bottle, good all around !

It poured a rich dark color with a tan head that is not very big but it stays with the drink. The smell is of milk chocolate and the taste is just the same. A bid smooth rich chocolate flavor, it is a bit heavy to drink so it just right to sit back and enjoy. Overall the is one of the best I have tried lately.

Dark color with tan head. Light chocolate in the smell. Flavor follows the smell, roasty and chocolate flavors. Light and drinkable, I should have bought more. Nice to have a semi-dessert beer that doesn't drink like pudding.

This stout pours a dark black color with a medium frothy tan head. The smell is sweet with milk chocolate dominating and some roasty malt scents supporting. The flavor is similarly dominated by a rich milk chocolate flavor. The body is heavy and the mouthfeel creamy. This is clearly a premiere dessert stout made by master stout craftsmen. If sweet milk stouts are your thing then this is heaven. I personally prefer the oatmeal stout by a bit, but I can certainly appreciate this.

Pours fairly dark with a foamy light mocha head. Big chocolate aroma. Very chocolaty, quite sweet as well. Good carbonation, not yeasty like other English beers. Love that it is only 5%, very flavorful for such a low abv. Overall a very good beer, would drink again
