4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
What an awsome stout this is. Beautiful dark choco-brown body with tight fluffy beige head. Smell is immediately chocolate and roasted malt. Smooth as silk on the palate and clings to the inside of your mouth. Taste is bitter chocolate with hop overtones. This is by far one of my favorite stouts.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black colour, nice brown bubbly head, persistent. The aroma (very pleasant) is dominated by chocolate. Roasty malts flavour, with a good bittersweet cocoa taste. Smooth, very drinkable and pleasant.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2003 Starts light and hoppy, not a very strong chocolate flavour, yet very nice. Large head mostly diminishes with no lacings. Nice body, creamy texture, and the finish is short and sweet. It's a good all-around chocolate brew, but I wish there was more chocolate to it.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2003 Very smooth with a light chocolate flavor.Fast diminishing head. A bit hoppy but still nice. Finishes kind of flat and boring.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
An old favorite. Reminds me of chocolate milk. Very smooth, lacy, rich, velvety mouthfeel (and that was my impression before reading the deScription here!). Chocolately, lightly roasted flavor. I am ignoring the metallic flavor lent to this elixir by its colorful aluminum can. Try this, and then try the Rogue Chocolate Stout for a stronger chocolate experience. Youngs comes highly recommended by this stout fan.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I was a little disappointed here. I expected a intense chocolate flavor but what I got was something tasting more like raisins. Texture was reasonable creamy and smooth. Not bad overall, but if you really want a sweet, malty, intense chocolate brew then try the superior Mackeson's XXX Stout.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
An excellent stout by anyone's standards. Big, malty start to it, with plenty of hops to back it up. This beer is exceptionally
smooth, creamy, and easy to drink. It's absolutely delicious.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
This starts out w/ all the right intentions, but disappoints at the end. It starts w/ a nice chocolate nose, tan head w/ a dark body and some up front chocolate flavor, but finishes a bit thin an watery. The body of this beer is too thin to make it work.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
When you first pour this it looks like a nice mocha...creamy top dark rich coloring. You can smell the coffee and chocolate scents. However you smell those scents more then you can taste them. This is very smooth and creamy but I think it lacks alot of taste. You get the slight hint of chocolate flavorings along with a weak coffee taste. Not bad for something different but I wouldn't rush out for more anytime soon.
