COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered
Ingredients: Water; Organic malted barley; Organic cane sugar; Yeast; Organic hops; Organic cocoa extract; Carbon dioxide
Brewed with well water (the original well, sunk in 1758, is still in use with the hard well water being drawn from 85 feet underground), the gently roasted organic cocoa extract impart a delicious, smooth and creamy character, with inviting deep flavours and a delightful finish - this is a marriage of satisfying stout and luxurious chocolate.

550ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a large, creamy tan head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. Milk chocolate, roasted coconut, praline and a little roasty malt create an alluring aroma. Very mild herbal and spice hops quickly give way to a smooth blend of coconut and praline. Silky smooth milk chocolate in the mid-palate leads into a sweet nutty finish. You definitely need a sweet tooth for this one, but I would consider it to be a deliciously smooth, chocolatey sweet stout.

Tastes like a scratch and sniff chocolate sticker plastered on my trapper keeper in 1987. Gross. Supposedly "organic" yet it I get the most artificial vibe imaginable from it. Sam Smith makes some great beers and this, kind sirs, is not one of them .

OK but not great for me because of the halzelnut flavor and aroma which makes me think of flavored coffee or Kaluhua ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

andrewturba (961) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 29, 2014
Pours a semi transparent very dark brown with a large tan head that settles kinda quickly and leaves a bit of lace. Aroma is artificial like chocolate(kinda chocolate syrup like), cocoa, and mild roasted malt. Flavour is cocoa, sweet chocolate syrup(kinda artificial like). Decent beer that tastes like chocolate syrup and there’s not much else to this beer.

Davros (1897) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 29, 2014
Pours black with an off-white head. Nose shows chocolate syrup, cocoa nibs and chocolate essence. Little else. Very sweet flavours too. Lots of artificial tasting chocolate and little else. Some soft roast. A bit cloying. Body feels watery.

Delicious. Incredibly chocolaty and creamy. Thick and delightful on the palate, with a heavy finish. Lingering aftertaste that leaves you craving more. Like drinking rich chocolate milk ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
