look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

A - Nearly opaque looking brew containing a perfect amount of carbonation plus terrific lacing.

S - Sweet smelling rich malts topped with pure chocolate goodness.

T - Incredible. Absolutely incredible. In fact, I like it so much that I feel that no chocolate stout, with the exception of Rouge, can even remotely compare. Considering this brew is a fraction of the cost of Rouge and tastes better its a God send for stout connoisseurs. I cannot even begin to explain the complex, rich nature of this brew. Delicious.

M - Somewhat thick, yet smooth and refreshing.

D - Far too good. I could drink this brew exclusively for the rest of my life without a doubt. However, I will admit that the bottled version of this brew does not even remotely compare to the nitro-can. Truthfully, if bottles are the only Young's available, I will choose the oatmeal stout over the double chocolate every time. This is because that in the bottle, double chocolate gains a bitterness that I dislike. Nevertheless, this is my all time favorite beer. Period.

Serving type: nitro-can
