Sam Smith Brewery’s page on the beer
Two Best Things About the Beer: Mega chocolately, and a very nice creamy texture. It actually smells like a donut shop!
Two Weaknesses of the Beer: It’s just too damn sweet. This beer is chock full of unfermented sugars and while it makes it rich and creamy, it’s also just a bit too sweet. I had to drink it quickly just to overcome the sugary flavour, but if you do that you might get a stomach ache.
Goes Great With: Ice-cream or pastries. It’s really that sweet
Ideal Time and Place: While gorging on a fresh chocolate frosted donut.
It may be super chocolatey, but I couldn’t finish this beer. That’s a rare occasion indeed.
