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.

550 ml bottle. Black, with a thick light tan head. Sweet aroma of chocolate and vanilla, some roasted malt. The flavour is sweet, with milk chocolate and vanilla, and some roasted notes in the finish. To my taste a bit too sugary and light-bodied, but still not bad.
