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.

500ml bottle? All to myself, bought at World Market or Trader Joes (I don’t remember offhand). Poured a creamy dark brown color with a large brown head. Aroma was pretty much all chocolate upfront, with some roasted and toasty malt notes. Probably a bit like a lightly malted chocolate milkshake if you had to pinpoint anything in particular. Flavor was milk chocolate candy, some roasted malt. Creamy, easy to drink. Not quite as good as I remember Youngs to be, but pretty close.

Very, very strong aroma of milk chocolate. Beutiful stuff. Smooth, low carbonation, begging to be drank. Nice feel on the palate, but very short unfortunately.

Pours dark mahogany with a slight tan head. Aroma is slightly metallic. Taste is sweet with bitterness in the middle and a nice smooth finish. Sweet chocolates with some malted notes. Pretty darn good sweet stout.

Great beer. This is such a unique stout that it should be shared with friends. My favorite part about it is the carbonation. You can see it and for such a smooth brew with carbonation... amazing. Wonderful chocolate all around. smell, taste, ect. Old brew, great brew!

bubbleflubber (1709) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - FEB 24, 2014
Pours an opaque mahogany into the glass, with a thin tan ring that leaves little suds or head. The nose is of beautifully crafted chocolates, cocoa and silky, dark bitter chocolate. Flavors are sweet, with chocolates and caramel abounding. Such a gorgeously sweet flavor that combines with all of the aromatics gorgeously. The finish is of a fine, silky bitter baker's chocolate. The mouthfeel is full and velvety on the palate, with a medium-full body and a silk-laden mouthfeel that goes down the pallet wonderfully smooth. So complex and substantive, this may be the absolute best chocolate stout I have ever had. And that goes a long, long way with me.

Pours a dark not quite black brown. Aroma is sweet chocolate with a hint of bourbon. Malty middle with an almost too sweet chocolate finish. Another solid Samuel Smith beer.

Taste a cocoa and a little coffee. Delicious tasting. Mouthfeel is sticky and chewy. Good stout.
