This Young's Double Chocolate Stout is the second from Wells & Young's that I've tried. Thought their Banana Bread Beer was very intriguing. This beer is in a completely different category.
Only tried one other "Chocolate Stout", the other by Rogue.
Picked this up at a fantastic store Total Wine in Kennesaw, Georgia. Definitely one I was looking forward to trying.
A - Dark and sticky. Not much of a head, but there is a small layer hanging in there on the top. Can't get much of any color besides black...a little brownish color there too. So rich looking.
S - Smells a little metallic, which seems to be evident on my nose in most stouts. Picking up the alcohol. The bitter chocolate is very present as well.
T - Picking up on the roasted malt and bitter dark chocolate. The alcohol is present...strange. Almost like drinking an iced and carbonated coffee drink. I couldn't drink too many of these...a little too rich for my liking.
O - I respect this beer enough that I would definitely drink one with my friends. Although, if I had to be absolutely honest, I wouldn't buy a pack of these for my own pleasure at home. There are others that will please my palate more.
Overall, I give it an 8 out of 10. The only other stouts I've enjoyed more is Samuel Smith's Oatmeal and Rogue's Chocolate Stout. Young's done a great job with this Double Chocolate Stout.
