where is the double chocolate. there doesnt seem to be much going on here. smell is malty with slight chocolate. taste is chocolate but not nearly as strong a the name would suggest. mouth feel is smooth at first then dry. good but not great. supprised it ranked this high.

I had it in nitro keg--I think. Well it was pretty smooth in that nitrogeny way. It reminded me of this milk stout I had recently. Is Youngs a milk stout? Anyway, it has good chocolate taste without being too sweet, which I was afraid of. Not bad!

Wow. Pours black with a nice tan head. Aroma is sweet, caramel like, with some chocolate character as well. Taste is extremely smooth. Flavor is reminiscent of a chocolate liqueur. An incredible bottle. This beer would go perfectly with a good brownie.

Bottled, Pasteurised. Dark black with ruby hue, tan head. Vinous malty sweetish beer with roasted barley and a chicory note. Bitter throughout but still enjoyable. Good bottled beer.

A chocolate milk aroma with some roast malt. Thin head and dark brown color. Flavor is extremely sweet and boasts milk chocolate with bitter notes and toasty malt. Mouth feel is carbonated and fizzy with a small caffeine taste.

15 oz can, cool. Despite a loud whoosh when I opened the can this one did not have as much carbonation as I imagined. Consequently not a very large head. Also it lacked the creaminess on the top that I expected. Still this is a good tasting stout that is dark in color and very much like coffee and toast. There is a hint of chocolate to this one but not enough in my opinion. The aroma on the other hand is loaded with a chocolate smell along with toasted malt. Hops well balanced. A must try.
