I promise I'm taking a step back from stouts after this (I already have my next beer waiting!), but there was no way I could resist talking about the amazingness that is this beer. You're probably most familiar with Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout, but the organic Chocolate Stout blows it out of the water.
I was sold before even tasting this beer. The aroma is amazing; it smells like pure chocolate. This stout is chocolatey, creamy, and absolutely delicious. The best part? It's only 5% alcohol! I could drink these all night long.
Samuel Smith recommends pairing this beer with complimentary chocolates, such as white, milk, and dark. Of course the chocolate cake with white chocolate mousse, beignets with espresso cream, and panna cotta were the perfect additions at our Valentine's Day dinner. I did not want this beer to end, and I can not wait to get my hands on another pack of it!
