Samuel Smith's Organic Chocolate Stout

While I was warned that this beer would taste extra malty, I was willing to try it anyways.

I wrote: "Samuel Smith. Organic Chocolate Stout. It smells very sweet. It smells like caramel. It has a really chocolate taste. Oh, it tastes exactly like eating malt balls." 6:53PM ET
I wrote: "Uh... yeah. I finished the beer, but it was mostly only good to sip on. It was actually overly malty." 6:53PM ET

Two weeks later and I can still remember the taste clearly in my mind. I remember the first sip was quite shocking and I ambiguously thought that the beer was both tasty and disgusting. With a couple more sips, I was able to detect the flavor, but was overwhelmed and wanted to stop drinking the beer less than halfway through. While I repeatedly thought about tossing the remains, I slowly sipped more and more until next thing I knew I had finished the bottle.

In any case, if you like eating malt milk balls (e.g., Whoppers), then you should definitely give this beer a try. Otherwise, you might want to stay away or just bum a sip off a friend. With that being said, I've also tried some other beers by Samuel Smith which might cater to a wider audience:
Samuel Smith's Imperial Stout
Samuel Smith's Organic Apricot Ale
Samuel Smith's Organic Cherry Fruit Beer
Samuel Smith's Taddy Porter

Brewed with well water (the original well, sunk in 1758, is still in use with the hard water is drawn from 85 feet underground), the gently roasted organic chocolate malt and organic cocoa impart a delicious, smooth and creamy character, with inviting deep flavours and a delightful finish - this is the perfect marriage of satisfying stout and luxurious chocolate.

Best served at about 51°F (11°C).
