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.

Black, opaque. Good smell, like warm toffee, matches the style. I’m not huge on chocolate beers, but this is one of the ones I’d buy again. The chocolate taste is present but not overpowering. Sam Smith’s scores again.

DocLock (8103) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Bottles from Capone’s and Wegman’s. Pours hazy dark blackish with 1-finger frothy tan head. Nose is strong dark chocolate, cacao, chocolate syrup, Tastes of cacao, ovaltine, chocolate powder mix, some creamy lactic notes. Palate is a bit wayery, but has a pretty smooth finish, and a beer that is on the sweet side, so it would pair well with something like German chocolate cake.

The_Osprey (2222) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2013
Dec 2012 - bottle. Big beige foamy head, almost spongey. Taste is primarily sweet chocolate syrup with a bit of watery stout. Very sweet in comparison to most stouts you’ll get. There is quite a lot of chocolate flavour, but it is quite artificial tasting.

stevencon (476) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - MAR 18, 2013
From bottle, black pour with tan head small bubbles. Aroma of milk chocolate and light roast malts. Strong aroma and very inviting. Taste very milk chocolate with small bubble carbonation. Hints of coffee and roasted grains but mainly milk chocolate, maybe a bit of bitter chocolate. Good mouth feel, easy to drink, very enjoyable beer.

rbrazell (1702) - Florida, USA - MAR 18, 2013
Black pour with a frothy tan head. Big delicious sweet milk chocolate aroma along with raisinettes candy, touches of vanilla and Herseys syrup. Flavor is sweet chocolate chip cookies with the bread dryness, light roast and coffee. Light bubbly bodied with a dry end. Pretty damn tasty.

Lemke10 (836) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 18, 2013
This pours a very dark brown color with a foamy, light brown head. The aroma is sweet with chocolate and malt. The taste is robust and fairly light from lots of carbonation. It finishes very sweet leaving a lingering chocolate taste. This certainly leaves a different taste than beers brewed with cocoa. Overall, this was a pretty good desert style stout.

Ron (2732) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 18, 2013
550ml bottle. Pours black with large tan head that settles slowly. Aromas of dark chocolate milk. Flavors of rich dark chocolate with more of an underlying full stout feel and taste. Very smooth and slick. It really is a chocolate drink with alcohol. Really liked this.

beerbastard (738) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAR 17, 2013
550ml bottle, pours very dark. Big chocolate malt nose. Huge rich chocolate and coconut flavors. Very sweet but, lacks some hop balance that I would prefer. Almost overwhelming. Soft and smooth.
