Young’s Double Chocolate Stout is a fantastic beer. The pour is dark and creamy with a thick head. The flavors are rich and dense: roasted, chocolatey, and malty. The beer is properly bittered and properly balanced. One of the best stouts I have tasted.

Nieprzejrzyście czarne, ładna beżowa piana. Aromat jest intensywnie czekoladowy, coś jak pralinki z mleczną i gorzką czekoladą. W tle kakao, coś jak nesquik. Ale co z tego skoro jest to efekt dodania aromatów? Równie dobrze może pachnieć Channel no.5. W smaku piwo nie jest zbyt pełne, zdominowano czekolada i kakao, w tle na krótko wyczuwalne słody palone i kawa. Finisz to niska goryczka. Pozostawia posmak gorzkiej czekolady.

Deep dark black pour, with a thick creamy tan head. Smells like chocolate and a slight hint of coffee. Taste is sweet milk chocolate. Ultra smooth and creamy. An awesome beer that doesn’t cost you too much.

Poured from the bottle into a tall glass to drink. The beer had a dark brown-black color with a good-sized foamy and creamy off-white head with shorter retention, good cling and lacing. Its aroma featured chocolate malt, along with caramel and toffee a bit of coffee, and some earthy and grainy hops. The taste was somewhat sweet with chocolate and caramel but also had quite a bit of earthy and chocolate bitterness. It was a wet and somewhat watery beer with a full, wet mouthfeel and lots of carbonation and life.

Pours a nice thick black with a cocoa head. Aroma is of dark chocolate. Quite a disappointing taste though. Thick but lacking in much flavour.

Oh wow. Poured a nice thick creamy mocha coloured head. Very good lacing. Extremely dark brown appearance. Has aromas of roasted malts, dark coffee grinds, mints, toffee. Man! Nice assorted flavours, very chocolatey, also some coffee, vanilla, spices, caramel. Very much flavourful. Pretty smooth creamy mouthfeel as well. This is good stuff indeed!! Definitely gonna be picking this up again.

Bottle. Poured an opaque black with a tan head and nice lacing. Taste of chocolate, roasted dark malts and coffee. Lively carbonation, medium body. Fantastic stout!

Very solid choc stout - delivers decent hit of choc and as promised, not too sweet - disappeared all too quickly down my cake hole - not earth shaking but bloody good.

Dark brown with medium yellow head. Nice vanilla aroma. Bitter, dry roasted malt bit smoked taste with chocolate and vanilla notes, bit dusty.
