Mmmm...comfort in a glass. This beer looks, tastes, and feels like an immaculate conception between stout and chocolate. This is, without a doubt, one of the very best beers I have ever enjoyed.

Piana gęsta, mocna i puszysta z brązową barwą, przywodzi na myśl mus czekoladowy, kawowy. Długo choć bez przesady utrzymuje się na powierzchni, topniejąc, pozostaje do samego końca degustacji.
Zapach czekolady, a właściwie kakao, pralinek, i słabej kawy.
Smak mało wyraźny, zamiast czekolady wyczuwalne nadzienie kakao z pralinek, jakby suche, sproszkowane. Goryczka na finiszu każdego łyku, całkiem przyzwoita.
To właśnie goryczka dostarcza najwięcej czekolady, ale czy jest to "double"? Young’s Double Chocolate jest zdecydowanie zbyt wodnisty, brakuje mu ciała,
a nasycenie jest niskie. Kiedy pierwszy raz piłem tego Young'sa, a było to jakieś 10 lat temu trochę inaczej go zapamiętałem. Dla tego dzisiaj oczekiwałem czegoś więcej,
więcej czekolady, więcej słodyczy i gęstości.

This beer is solid for a light tasting chocolate stout. However, Samuel Smiths blows it away

Had this twice, first time (about two years ago, craft beer beginner) I loved it!!! Now I honestly am not really impressed, nothing too bad about it it's ok, but i honestly can't say I would buy it again
