4.18/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours as motor-oil black as they come, with a nice brown head that dissipates into a thin later after a bit, but leaves plenty of nice lacing.

Smells of sweet dark chocolate, but less so than I expected. Also has overtones of roasted malts, but nothing too distinct beyond that.

Now the taste is quite nice. Subtle roasted malts, smoke, sweet prunes, and coffee accent the pronounced, but not overbearing chocolate taste. It's almost like drinking a milk chocolate beer with a lingering dark chocolate aftertaste. I really didn't notice much in the way of hops or bitterness other than a slightly bitter aftertaste.

Feels almost like a milkshake in your mouth it's so thick and creamy. Not a whole lot of carbonation, but then the style doesn't demand it. Fairly dry.

Drinks down easy, not nearly as heavy as you'd expect for such a thick and creamy beer. I would definitely recommend it to stout lovers, and will certainly be drinking this one again.

Youngs double chocolate stout surprised me in a very pleasant way! The appearance is that of a dark stout. Smell is roasted malts with very strong scent of a bittersweet chocolate. Taste is by far the best part, with bittersweet bakers chocolate coming up front along with the malt, with a slightly bitter hit at the end. The chocolate stays with you throughout the entire experience. Excellent beer for desert or with a hearty meal.
