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.

550 ml bottle. Pours black with tall, long lasting, creamy, beige head and nice lacing. Aroma is of chocolate, cacao, graham crackers and brown sugar. Body is medium, creamy and smooth. Taste is similar to aroma. Finish is long and sweet. Good dessert brew.

Deep dark. Oh well, chocolate! Sweet coffee. Light carbonation. Dessert beer. Not too heavy. A week bit single-ended, but still nice.

Good chocolate flavor, though it tends more to more Yoo-Hoo than Ghirardelli.

gramity (1684) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 18, 2016
Poured a reddish/brownish color with a small sized head. Cherries, lighter woodiness, caramel, some vanilla, and some funk. Lighter vinegar.

Echon (564) - Århus, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2016
Almost black and medium-bodied. Very rich chocolate aroma and flavour. Full, yet mild, sweet taste with light bitterness. Overall, a great chocolate stout. Smooth and simple, but the rich chocolate makes it very tasty.

hopdog (13191) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2016
Bottle. Poured a dark brown with a smaller sized off white head. Malted milk balls, chocolate, and well, more chocolate.

OrthoDoc (189) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 12, 2016
My first Samuel Smith beer. Aroma of sweet milk chocolate and vanilla. Taste follows the nose but the chocolate has a somewhat artificial flavor. Mouthfeel is thin with a clean, sweet finish. No bitterness or hop influence detectable. Fun to try but this is a one and done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sample. It poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma was of sweet caramel and chocolate. The taste was similar to the aroma with more caramel, chocolate, malts and sugar. Tasty.

3.6
Holmen2 (4288) - NORWAY - JUN 6, 2016
Shared bottle at Mi2 Extended at Cardinal 06.06.16. Ebony. Brown head and lacing. Fine aroma of cocoa, dark chocolate and vanilla. Similar taste, with molasse. Slightly fruity aftertaste. Well balanced. Heavy drinking.

4.2
rostetti (385) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUN 4, 2016
Bottle from Alko. Pours black with small tan head. Aroma and taste have vanilla and a lot of chocolate. People who don’t normally like beer, will probably like this one. This would work perfectly as a desert, it is very sweet. Liquid chocolate.
