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.

4.5/5  rDev +6.4%

A: Pours a deep brown color and develops a nice one - finger head that, upon dissipation, leaves a nice caramel colored layer of froth behind.

S: The aroma of Hot chocolate with a touch of spice, a cinnamon note on the finish.

T: This is an all - out chocolate stout, through and through. There is a hint of spice. A vanilla finish follows the taste of roasted malt....but all of this is hidden behind a wall of decadent chocolate.

F: Nice and thick, a creaminess that sticks to the mouth. A proper level of carbonation brings it all together.

O: This beer is amazing. If you like good beer and chocolate this is guaranteed to be a home run. It's like a brownie in a bottle.
