I'm not impressed despite the high ratings, wonder what I'm missing.
Poured from a 14.4-oz nitro can. Looks, tastes and feels like Guiness with some chocolate flavor added, maybe a little smoother and creamier but that's all I'm getting.

Have been getting this lovely drop in 500ml Cans recently , I have found Young's Double Chocolate Stout , to be better than ever. It seems to pour better , and the creamy head is retained longer . The taste is luxurious , chocolate and coffee flavours divine , and my local store in Perth , Australia is currently selling them at $17.99 for a 4-pack , a comparative bargain in my book
For a regular drinking pleasure ,, when you want to enjoy a few (5.2 % perfect ) I can't go past this ..superb

Delicious from tap. On a cold winters night, a handful of these is as close to heaven as I'm likely to get.

Nose is dark cocoa bean espresso. Appearance is dark night molasses. Its a beautiful looking stout. Head is tan about a finger. Taste is dark chocolate bean and some toasted malt, in no way overpowering , just perfect. This is a world class stout. Enjoyable through and through. I had this beer with fresh caught striper cooked in beer batter breading. Pure greatness together. I was surprised that it paired with seafood so well. Stoked.

Opaque with a nice thick tan head. Too dark to see carbonation. The head recedes quickly, but not too quickly and laces nicely. Smells mildly sweet, like raisins. Tastes like raisins, mild molasses maybe, touch of cocoa, mixed with a roasted/toasted mix, but far from too sweet like most stouts I've had. I've been looking for a stout that's not too sweet. This is a solid and great beer.
