England, United Kingdom
samuelsmithsbrewery.co.uk

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.

Poured from a bomber into a room temperature tulip.

A: Pours a rich dark chocolate brown with a beautiful khaki head that maintains well and laces nicely.

S: Big delectable notes of rich chocolate with small notes of toffee and coffee, although the chocolate reigns supreme, like a molten bar of bittersweet.

T: Once again, rich and delicious chocolate is at the forefront, leaving a pleasant chocolate aftertaste on the palate.

M: Not too heavily bodied, with tight carbonation that does a good job of scrubbing the palate. It's comparatively low ABV and overall sweetness makes it a fairly light-bodied stout.

O: A great dessert beer, this chocolate stout gives some of my favorites a run for their money. It's an easy beer to drink and not too heavy, so crushing a bomber on your own is a cinch.
