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.

niquillis (2494) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2015
Bottle at Congress, Longton. Pours black brown with a tan head. Very chocolatey which shouldnt a criticism in a chocolate stout but it is quite overpowering to me. Decent enough.

King_Alex_II (1228) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 15, 2015
Blackish ruby color with thin fine pored beige foam. The smell is absolutely incredible. Creamy milk chocolate with a hint of liquor. Not too heavy, almost a bit watery. Very creamy, foamy chocolate taste. Smooth mouth feeling. Very nice beer.

Ive fallen in love with this brew!! Just another example of Sam Smith excellence. From the look, aroma, mouthfeel, and taste...just extraordinary. If youre a lover of chocolate, vanilla, and beer....youre gonna love this! Pairs well with a cigar too.

mile (3914) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 3, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown, average and mostly diminishing light brown head. Moderate, malty and sugary sweetish aroma, some caramel and artificial like coffee/chocolate. Body is medium, malty and sugary sweetish flavor, some caramel and artificial like chocolate. Finish is average, malty and sweet, faint roastiness and some artificial like coffee/chocolate. Too (sugary) sweet for me. Lacks character - for those with sweet tooth.
