Chocolate Stout - Samuel Smith's Organic Chocolate Stout - US Beer Importer Official Site

Samuel Smith
Organic Chocolate Stout

Chocolate beautifully melded to stout - deep, aromatic, and satisfying.

The History of Organic Chocolate Stout

Innovators in Certified Organic beers, Samuel Smith began to ship the first organic beers to the US in the mid-1990s. Organic Cider and Organic fruit beers followed starting in 2007, and after many months of test brews & intensive tasting Organic Chocolate Stout was released in September, 2012. UK Soil Association and USDA Certified Organic.

A note about the label: the term "Theobroma cacao" that appears on the label is the scientific name for the cacao tree, and the illustration is of the pod from this tree, source of chocolate.


Full body; roasted barley flavor; fruity notes from the Samuel Smith yeast strain support lush chocolate aroma, taste & finish.

Serving Suggestion

Great with a bowl of mixed nuts, with sharp cheeses, or with a classic molé sauce entrée. For dessert, try with complementary white, milk or dark chocolate; hazelnut biscotti; or chocolate mousse. Contrast with citrus crème caramel or vanilla ice cream. A glass of Organic Chocolate Stout is a treat with an addition of 10% Lindemans Framboise lambic. Serve at 50 °F.
