    550 ml bottle, at the Robert Raike’s House (a Samuel Smith pub), Gloucester. Served ice cold. ABV is 5%. Nearly black colour, ruby in the highlights. Moderate beige head. Lovely aroma of chocolate, cocoa and vanilla, hints of marshmallows. Fairly light bodied. Medium sweet flavour of chocolate, cocoa and vanilla again. Low bitterness.

    Pours a nice big frothy brownish head and has a dark brown appearance. Thick dirty lacing. Aromas of vanilla, chocolate and roasted malts. Flavours are quite sweet, light roasted malt, chocolate is very much apparent, hints of vanilla, cacao, earthy hops. Has a lot of sweetness but is well balance with some bitterness. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Great retention.

    Slow settling dark brown dark chocolate milk, brown lacing lasting foam. Chcolate aroma all over, bitter chocolate taste. Lasting long. Great beer, one of the best. (Velp 201506)

    Pours out extremely drak brown hues hues of red and a foamy tan head. The aroma is all chocolate with a note of vanilla. The mouthfeel is just average. The taste is without a doubt the best chocolate beer I've ever had. It's so smooth that in a blind taste test. I would have guessed this to be a milk stout.

    Absolutely the best chocolate enhanced beer I've ever had to date; better than Youngs, which is too sweet. Weak head, minimal lacing. A session beer by ABV, but I can only enjoy one at a time, usually after dinner. I should try this with peanuts or p-nut butter cookies. My wife , who is not too fond of beer, always wants a 2 oz pour of mine, as she likes this one. Try blending one with a vanilla porter or a milk stout sometime, it can be enjoyable.

    Single brown bottle from the LCBO. The colour looks like cola, dark brown, with a nice frothy beige head that lasts long and gives out thick foamy lacing. Big candy nose with a mix of sugar and vanilla. Underneath are the chocolate notes. Wooo ! Way too sweet !! Body is not too heavy, but again, the candy over the cocoa. So sweet, it is hard to finish just one. Would cut down on the cane sugar and add more cocoa extract. Or maybe not the extract, but the powder. Revised: did 2.9/5 last year, but this year, seems a little less sweet.

    Don't think I've ever had a beer taste so much like chocolate. Looks great all the way to the end. Aroma and flavour are all about the chocolate. Throw in some vanilla and a little cocoa and it makes for an easy drinking beer, although a tad sweet. Medium smooth mouthfeel.

    The beer pours a solid black with a tight creamy brown head. The aroma is roasted malt, vanilla and dark milk chocolate. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied, creamy with average carbonation. The flavour is certainly chocolate laced with raspberry notes. Very decadent.

    It has been awhile since I've tried anything from Samuel Smith. And this is a true treat. Ebony blackness in color. A big tight bubbled frothy textured light brown head rising above. There's good hang time on the head. A light film and moderate ringlet are left behind. Put the sweetest chocolate, roasted malt and a touch of vanilla together and that is what this ale is in nose and tasting. Would make an excellent vanilla ice cream beer-float. Full bodied and slick creaminess.

    This is a beautiful, dark chocolaty beer with a good chocolate-cream head. Even cold, the smell of cocoa with some chocolate malt is strong. The beer is smooth, sweet, with chocolate overtones that seem like everything - cocoa, syrup, candy bars. One of the best chocolate ales I have ever tasted. The smooth velvety drink finishes good, leaving you with a chocolate aftertaste. Overall a very nice stout, a must try for chocolate lovers.
