I just bought a bottle of Young's Chocolate Stout from a pharmacy-type store, and poured it at about 30 degrees into my pint glass. The beer has a very pleasant, though not particularly strong, chocolatey smell. It looks pitch-black, like you'd expect. The mouthfeel seems less creamy than you'd might expect (which I like). It tastes great, not too chocolatey. Overall, I'd give this a 4.5 because I think it'd be better with a stronger smell and taste. It's the best stout I've tried thus far (only had around 8-10 brands).

Pours a foamy mocha colored blend (from the nitro can)that slowly turns into a deep black colored elixir, with an inch creamy head that never wants to fade.
Delicious semi-sweet, dark chocolate on the nose, with hints of toffee and caramel.
Medium bitterness on the tongue, with the chocolate coming in, mixed with some coffee ground. Light carbonation, low ABV makes it extremely drinkable.
Another great hit from Young's!
Highly recommended!

A: Black body with 3 finger frothy foam. Lots and lots of lacing.

S: Not much smell... but some chocolate, some malt noted.... and maybe oats.

T: Yum. I like it. It's definitely not a huge beer by any means, but it kind of tastes like an Irish Stout with chocolate flavour.

M: Thin and good amount of carbonation. I thought it would be creamier.

O: Very good beer that is readily available near me. I had this several times, but finally get to review it.
