Något bränd smak. Lite besk eftersmak. En bra stout i min smak. Ska jag köpa en stout, passar denna mig ganska bra. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap. Pours a watery black with little head. Thin mouthfeel- not what I would expect from a stout. A bit of toasted malt flavor but not overly sweet.

Interesting beer, but still can’t hold a candle to the Samuel Smith Chocolate Stout. Check out my review of this beer >>>>>> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xhOZDDYn1Zc

Nitro can. Thick dark pour. Thin tan creamy head. Super smooth and creamy full body. Quite enjoyable feel. Fairly mild yet pleasant aroma. Chocolate up front with a slight roasty/earthy quality in finish. Good stuff.

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.
