COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available filtered and pasteurised in 500ml bottles and in nitrocans. Also Nitro Keg on Tap
Production moved from Youngs to Wells & Youngs in 2007.
Ingredients: Pale ale and crystal malt, chocolate malt, special blend of sugars, Fuggle and Goldings hops, real dark chocolate and chocolate essence.
Chocolate malt and real dark chocolate are combined with Young's award winning rich, full flavoured dark beer to craft a satisfyingly indulgent, but never overly sweet experience.

Not bad at all; a wonderful take on the sweet stout genre, with a nicely balanced creamy chocolate flavor.

A good solid stout. I would like to try it on tap sometime, but cannot find it anywhere.

I think I’ll have my girlfriend try this - she hates beer (called Guinness ’vile’), but loves chocolate. I liked it, although I wouldn’t drink more than two at a time.

Im not a huge chocolate fan, that is why this lacks in my flavour department. Other than the extremely apparent chocolate taste it also has a sweet after taste. Hard to drink more than two in a row.

As a chocoholic, its hard for me to not love this beer. I find it just does everything right, and the color is great. I think it has now surpassed Celebrator as my new favorite.

I agree with DrBeer. I am in love with this beer. Rich and chocolatey with a strong coffee note, beautiful deep black hue. Nice malty aroma, lovely thick mouthfeel. The perfect beer for a cool winter night.

Smelled great, tasted pretty damn good too. As stated in previous reviews a definite bitter chocolate flavor is present. Malty, rich, and creamy. I definitley will drink again. A fantstic stout and a really good beer overall.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2003 Weak flavor compared to other stouts I've tried, but still nice undertones of chocolate and roastiness (is that a word?). Slight bitterness. Less than medium body (otherwise I would've rated higher).

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2004 Mmmm, this was very good, wonderful dark appearance, hints of chocolate abound. A very good stout. A think this would be the perfect 'dessert' to end a great meal
