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.

Pours black with a khaki head and lacing. It has a great aroma of cocoa and dark malts, with a flavor of sweet and dark chocolate up front and a sweet but maltier aftertaste over a smooth body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DavidWoodruff (629) - Windsor, California, USA - JUL 25, 2017
Black with a dense brown head. Caramel, vanilla and milk chocolate are the main aromas. Soft and sweet with a gentle lactose finish. Plenty of chocolate here. Perhaps more of a bitter dark chocolate would give it more depth. Overall a very nice light bodied milk stout.

Nice sweet chocolate aroma, good chocolate flavor, slightly nutty, sweet but not too sweet. Little on thin side. Delicious! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle - wow... sensational - perfectly balanced - sweet and creamy but not too much so - huge choc malt for the abv - great roast complexity - so easy to smash so satisfying - must get more...

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2017 Wow now this is a beer, dark colour chocolate stout done to perfection. Fairly sweet but not over the top, this is one the best beers going from possibly the UKs best brewery.
