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.

This is as close to chocolate milk as beer should ever be, in the best way possible.

Appearance: Dark brown pour with a finger of tan head

Smell: Chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate! Great quality chocolate at that, with a bit of cream; Sweet and satisfying

Taste: This is the best interpretation of a chocolate stout iv had; even better chocolate notes than i remember Choklat having. It sure does taste pure and organic.

Mouthfeel: Light medium body; So damn smooth, and accompanied with the flavors, its as close to drinking chocolate milk as a beer can get

Overall: Im not even a fan of gimmicky chocolate stouts but this is one done right. You can tell its organic just by smelling and tasting it, none of that artificial flavoring some breweries are guilty of. This is definitely a beer I'd recommend to people who dont even like beer. In fact, my brother who isnt in to beer but takes sips of mine, tasted this and immediately said its his favorite beer to date. Its the perfect dessert beer, and imagine it going perfectly with chocolate truffels or something. This is what i will judge all chocolate beers by from now on.
