Pours a very dark brown, almost black. Glints of light if held up to a very bright light. Smooth, velvety head that never goes away.
Sweet, malty aroma. Powdered cocoa, sugar, and a little alcohol aroma.
Surprisingly not as sweet as the aroma would suggest. Dark chocolate is definitely there, cocoa powder, some sugary sweetness. But, there's a lovely, smokiness that comes in early to cut the sweetness. Subtle herbal hops round out the flavors.
Thick body. Motor oil consistency. Velvety smooth from the nitro widget.
Quite drinkable. Great dessert beer.
Since I have a huge sweet tooth, I tend to gravitate to the sweeter stouts, like this and milk stouts. This did not disappoint. Now, I just need to find it on tap somewhere.
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.
