Appearance: Black like a leather bikers jacket with a thick ivory foam head. Some lace is found on the side of the glass, but most falls back into the beer.
Smell: Chocolate and malt are most noticeable when held close to the nose.
Taste: A milk chocolate taste dominates and is followed by a more mellow malt flavor and an ever so slight bitter finish. The aftertaste is that of milk chocolate.
Mouthfeel: Each sip of this medium to full bodied beer feels like a smooth, cool, velvet blanket sliding over your tonge. However, I find it slightly thin for a stout.
Drinkability: A great dessert beer, but leaves you feeling full after a pint or two.
This is a terrific chocolate stout. I find myself thinking of this beer often and can remember its chocolaty flavor days later. It reminds me so much of chocolate milk that I forget I'm drinking a stout.
Serving type: nitro-can

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.
