Admittedly, a can is probably not the best means of delivery for this beer, which I initially tried from a tap, yet the experience was not significantly diminished. I found a four-pack of Young's at Trader Joe's in 14.9 oz cans, each stamped at the bottom with a freshness date of February, 2007. In short, I have great affection for this beer. The pour is exceptionally creamy with a brown mocha color. After it sat a bit the thin rich head separated from the dense black below. Strong scent of porter and chocolate. The chocolate taste is very present, followed by a pleasant stout bitterness that effectively leaves the mouth feeling somehow cleansed and ready for another sip, althouth the former did seem to diminish as the beer cooled. The creamy, silky mouthfeel and the flavor makes it perfect to drink with a chocolate dessert. In all, a unique experience in beer.

Serving type: nitro-can
