The Hubbster is famous for saying that he doesn’t like his beer to taste like chocolate.
On the other hand, I am not famous for saying that. As a matter of fact, I am not famous for disliking ANY type of beer! That said, there are some beers I can definitely say that I enjoy more than others.
I am happy to announce that Samuel Smith’s Organic Chocolate Stout is among the ones I particularly enjoy.
It has a distinctly vanilla flavor at first, which lingers after swallowing. The vanilla mixes nicely with the mild bitterness which follows, and it is all tied together in a neat little stout package with a mild chocolatey-niceness. I would call this almost root beer-esque. That’s really a pretty accurate description — it is like drinking root beer without the actual sweetness.
Conclusion: it is yummy!! And I am right pleased to find that the bottle is a full, proper pint. No, I will not be sharing.
