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.

oh6gdx (24928) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2015
Bottled. Deep brown colour with a beigeish brown head. Aroma is chocolaty, some slight toasted notes as well as a nice nuttiness to it. Flavour is similar, but also has some slight hops, syrup, sugar and mild toffee to it. On the sweeter side of things, but still has some elements to balance the sweetness up.

Leighton (18075) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2013
Bottle shared somewhere in the last year. Pours rich brown with a tight, beige foam head; I’ll say this for Sam Smith and his beers: they look good. Sugary milk chocolate in the aroma. Medium to big sweet flavor with cheap chocolate bar character, light roast, very mellow earthy bitterness. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish, more chocolate. The chocolate just seems a bit artificial and cheap. Meh.
