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.

550ml bottle. Pours a very deep brown, almost black colour with a ruby tinge when held up to the light. Dark tan head but left absolutely no lacing. Powerfully enticing aroma of milk chocolate, mocha and vanilla. Smells great. Deliciously sweet, chocolatey taste with only a hint of bitterness. Full body, creamy texture, low carbonation, long finish. A chocolate stout that provides a massive chocolate hit. Bottled chocolate. WOW!!!
