I had a couple of bottles of this while in the Youngs Dog & Bull pub, in Croydon, UK, after work.
It looked stunning poured into a Youngs ale glass in one of the nicest old london pubs Ive seen in three years of being here. The medium bubbly head was white/brown and settled nicely.
I've never had anything like it before. Incredible chocolate presence (tastes like cadburys) - but it still manages to be a stout somehow. Other notes are present in the taste, such as raisin and coconut. The drinkability is exceptional, I would have expected it to sit in your stomach. Nonetheless I probably would not have more than 2 of these in one sitting. The stout is very lightly carbonated. Ive also had to slightly reduce my rating to compensate for the novelty factor I was experiencing!
