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.

Bottle. Aroma of sweet chocolate, vanilla, cacao. Taste is very sweet and chocolate-ish.,medium bitter end. The problem with this one is that the chocolate doesn´t really taste like it should, almost artificial. Second problem is that there is, apart from the heavy sweetness, nothing going on at all, which makes this a completely boring sweet stout.

Bottle received as a gift. Pours black with thick light brown head. Strong chocolate flavours, lot of sweetness. A surprisingly easy drinker for a stout

HIGHB4LL (837) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 31, 2014
16 oz. bottle share thanks to Kacey. Appearance: finger white khaki head, chocolate brown color, clear, good lacing. Aroma: chocolate roast, coffee, caramel. Palate: full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Taste: sweet throughout, great balance and not overwhelming sweet. Overall, very good beer, first Samuel Smith’s and definitely not last.

Dark brown. Fat head, stays for the whole glass. Lots of chocolate, malts. Fairly light on the palate. Great.

RasmusOtt (2182) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 27, 2014
Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of sweet milk chocolate, cocoa, vanilla, cane sugar and sweet toasted malts. Taste has the same qualities and is rather sweet. Body is rather thin. Overall not a great stout.

I rate beers I think significantly better than average, simple as that. I am not into showing off through bloviating. :)

islay (2137) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Approximately 5 oz. pour from a 12 oz. bottle, consumed on 5-23-14. Strong aroma features scents of milk chocolate candy bar, Cadbury Egg (chocolate and cream), and malted milk balls. A bit of an artificial, Tootsie Roll-like smell. Pours dark brown with a moderate amount of light tan head and good lacing. Flavor of chocolate with a surprising hint of sour lemon and some bitterness. Lightly bitter aftertaste. Medium body. Totally unremarkable and forgettable palate effects. I was hoping for better, but it’s certainly far from offensive.

This was a really nice sweet stout. I have had some that are too much like chocolate milk, but this really balanced it well with its dark malt and coffee flavours. Nice creamy mouth feel, with no real bitterness to speak off, then finishes nice and sweet.

Very rich initial chocolate taste and great stout aftertaste. It reminds me of Decadent from Atwater, not sure which is better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
