500ml to a nonic style taster

A: Pours dark oily black with a slight crimsoned edge and a sandy tan head. Nice thick bubbles crater out in a matter of seconds. Some underwhelming cling, just a few splashes here and there.

S: Smells of dark roasted malts and raw cacao beans. Nice dark chocolate aromas with some supporting coffee notes and a bit of tart dark berry mixed in. Pleasing to say the least.

M: Tastes of deep roast grains with some nice caramelized sugars on it. I get oats, dark chocolate, and a bit of spent coffee. There is a nice moderate bitterness and a little bit of mixed dark berry. Alcohol barely even noticeable. A little bit of a step down from the nose. Not overly chocolate but nice.

T: Very smooth and creamy texture with moderate physique. Carbonation is lush. Rather wet on the finish and a bit thin/watery overall.

D: A long-established example of the style. Very approachable with some good roast and chocolate flavors. Nothing pushing boundaries by today’s standards but a must try.
A classic and for good reason.

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.
