this beer is heaven. it is to this day one of my all time favs. a very rich slightly heavy stout. very frothy and thick head. and they balanced it to perfection with a hint of dark chocolate. i have drank this beer many times and will definatly drink many more. youngs oatmeal stout is excellent as well..

This is my first 5x5 star rating. This rating is based on Young's Double Chocolate on tap at Ship Inn, Milford NJ. There was simply nothing more I could have wanted from a stout.

Instead of elaborating on the excruciating details I will state how this was exceptional even compared to the bottled version.

There was a finger and a half dough-colored lacing that sat atop a full pint of pure black. The lacing sustained through out the entire draft.

The aroma was licorice, deep bitter chocolate, grainy malt and a bit of earthy floral aroma. Notes of cavendish tobacco.

The flavor was dry and smooth compared to other stouts. Dark, hints of deep cocoa and earthy licorice. Some vanilla and a bit of toasted flavor came through.

Thick, bready mouthfeel. Smooth, endlessly drinkable. Nothing else I could want from a stout. Simply the best stout I've had and superior on tap.
