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.

550ml bottle. Pours a dark brown with a frothy tan head that quickly recedes. Big chocolate aroma followed by an even bigger chocolate flavor along with alot of caramel. Very rich flavor and full body like drinking chocolate syrup. It also retains those Sammy Smith qualities you will recognize but are hard to describe that are probably contributed by the water.

Villyzzz (45) - Espoo, FINLAND - SEP 12, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours dark brown with medium beíge head. NIce lacing. Aroma is milk chocolate, mocha and cream. Taste has a lot of chocolate. Quite sweet with caramel and hints of malt. A bit light bodied but it suits the sweetness really well. Some bitterness but not overwhelmingly. Easily drinkable with quite short finish. Really nice and different chocolate stout. Will buy again.

evannell (733) - Kraków, POLAND - AUG 31, 2016
Aromat, jak i smak, przypominają czekoladę i nut jakby "Nesquikowe". Ogólnie ciut za słodkie. Można było Pofermentować dłużej. Koniec końców - piwo dobre./

lello4ever (675) - ITALY - AUG 25, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2016 Nera con schiuma persistente marroncina di buona compattezza. Aroma fantastico, malto e vaniglia. Al palato si conferma molto dolce, con caffè appena accennato, cioccolato al latte spinto, anche la tostatura, mentre vaniglia. Abbastanza acquosa, non è cremosa e il corpo è leggero. La Stout più dolce che abbia mai provato, si addice ai dolci al cioccolato, non molto sul pasto.
