Samuel Smith Organic Chocolate Stout pours a dark, coffee brown with little head. The aroma is really outstanding. There's a really strong, sweet chocolate smell that actually reminds me of a chocolate scented candle or the aroma of a chocolate cake in the oven. It's one of the strongest and sweetest smelling chocolate beers I've ever smelled. The flavor is even stronger and sweeter chocolate cake, which I don't enjoy as much. It's just very, very rich and sweet. This would be a great dessert beer to share with a companion, but I found the flavor too rich and sweet to thoroughly enjoy just in terms of a guy and a beer. On the other hand, I know my girlfriend will love this stuff, and I plan to bring a bottle the next time I cook dinner.
