Semisweet chocolate brown with ruby highlights, topped off with a medium tan, rocky head that slowly subsides to a fat disk and leaves a moderate amount of lace.
The nose is roasted malt and chocolate, but is too subdued. The flavor consists of roasted malt and moderately sweet chocolate. It becomes much more vivid as the beer warms. I'm enjoying the bottom half of the bottle much more than I did the top half and will be sure to let my next bottle get closer to room temperature before diving in.
The mouthfeel isn't bad, but it's a trifle lighter than expected. I like my stouts to be thicker and creamier. It could be smoother in the mouth as well, but to be fair, it does even out as it warms.
Young's Double Chocolate Stout is a pretty good version. I'll definitely have it again. Note to self: next time, let it warm to near room temperature for maximum enjoyment.
