The stout poured a dark black with just the slightest red in the edges when held up to the light. There was a small 1/2" creamy head that disappeared too quickly(nothing beats seeing this head rise up when poured on tap!). There was some light lacing on the glass.
The smell was predominantly roasted malt at first, as the stout warmed up some of the chocolate aroma started to come out.
The taste, I think, was delicious. The liquid has a creamy, velvety mouthfeel. The brew has a medium carbonation. The first taste is a earthy, roasted flavor. As the beer hits mid mouth the sweet milk chocolate flavor envelops the tongue. A nice roasted bitter finish lingers around for a long, long time. This beer is the bomb on draught, and it is very good from the bottle.
Very drinkable stout, I enjoyed this one after dinner while watching Band of Brothers for the third time. Very nice beer from Young's and probably still my favorite English brew yet.
