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.

Blackish ruby color with thin fine pored beige foam. The smell is absolutely incredible. Creamy milk chocolate with a hint of liquor. Not too heavy, almost a bit watery. Very creamy, foamy chocolate taste. Smooth mouth feeling. Very nice beer.

Iíve fallen in love with this brew!! Just another example of Sam Smith excellence. From the look, aroma, mouthfeel, and taste...just extraordinary. If youíre a lover of chocolate, vanilla, and beer....youíre gonna love this! Pairs well with a cigar too.

mile (3459) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 3, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown, average and mostly diminishing light brown head. Moderate, malty and sugary sweetish aroma, some caramel and artificial like coffee/chocolate. Body is medium, malty and sugary sweetish flavor, some caramel and artificial like chocolate. Finish is average, malty and sweet, faint roastiness and some artificial like coffee/chocolate. Too (sugary) sweet for me. Lacks character - for those with sweet tooth.

Maybe itís that Iím not tasting to style, but this amalgam of probably decent beer, sugar and extract is one of the most foul flavored beers Iíve had since I stopped drinking flavored beers. Pours with an amazing dark color and rich creamy head.

Kauge (760) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 2, 2015
Bottle as a gift from Helsinki. BB June 2016. Pours a rather light brown colour while appearing black with a ruby hue in the glass. Headís light beige, rather big, soapy bubbles, drops slowly, leaving little lacing. On the nose itís chocolate powder and kama chocolate, maybe some kind of chocolate with bits of berries in it. Tastes sugary sweet, more cocoa than chocolate, some bitterness too. Some cinnamon? The body is Iíd say on the lighter side of medium; the pleasantly crisp yet thin carbonation cuts through the sweet, slightly syrupy texture. Not liking the metallic effect it has on my teeth and walls of the mouth - kinda like coca-cola. I see this is quality stuff but itís not exactly my cup of tea, and the 550 ml is a bit too much really...

APPEARANCE - appears dark, held up to the light it has a deep dark brown color. NOSE - chocolatey deliciousness. FLAVOR - chocolate front to back. Light (perhaps oatmeal) stout flavor, but itís background to the chocolate.
