Poured from the bottle a a rich black with a thick, dense light tan head. Good lacing left behind.

Aroma of dark chocolate, vanilla, chocolate malts, and deep roasted malts.

Yjr taste was was quite rich and chocolately. Dark chocolate along with vanilla, roasted malts, and lactose. Finished clean.

Full bodied and creamy with a lighter carbonation.

Delicious and a must try.

Pours seal brown with a healthy mocha head. A decent amount of patchy lacing clings to the glass as the beer recedes. Aroma smells of both dark and milk chocolate. I don't know if my senses were just quick to acclimate, but the aroma doesn't seem nearly as present in the glass as it did right from the bottle. The front end brings a heavy dose of roast with dark chocolate. Milk chocolate steps up in the middle and lingers into the finish. A roasty haze lingers well after. Just enough hops are present to lend some balance. There's also a touch of alcoholic warmth that exceeds what its pedestrian ABV would suggest, giving this brew a bigger character than it would otherwise have. Mouthfeel is just right for the style and complements the flavor profile nicely. Warming certainly does this beer a favor, as the roasted chocolate elements become deeper and more present. Overall, Young's is a very solid chocolate beer that offers some depth and never becomes cloying. Certainly worth having again.
