COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available filtered and pasteurised in 500ml bottles and in nitrocans. Also Nitro Keg on Tap

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.

Rich, smooth, full bodied with a hint of bittersweet chocolate. Firm, smooth, creamy head with a pleasing finish. Chill it on ice for an even better flavor.

This is my favorite beer. Thick and rick with coffee and chocolate flavors, I compare all beers to this. It is much better in the bottle than the can.

This is a very rich beer. I prefer it over most others. Just wish it wasn’t so expensive.

A stout that even my wife loves! A thick but not too thick embiance, and flavour surround this drink. Full bodied filled with chocolate overtones and earthy undertones make this stout a delite for the first time taster. Exceptionally hard to find outside of larger cities, the east coast of Canada really needs to import this wonderful product!

Cybercat (3277) - Georgia, USA - MAR 8, 2008
Color is a deep, opaque sable with a decent, fine-bubbled tan head. Aroma is delightful, strong and smoky with firm undertones of chocolate and coffee. Flavor is rich, smoky, with strong chocolate component and coffee undertones - delicious! There is a hoppy undertone, and the aftertaste is hoppy and chocolaty. Highly recommended to all stout/porter fans.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2009 Perhaps it’s just the style phase I’m in right now, but in my personal ratings of 150 beers there are only two that get a 10 out of 10 in my opinion. This is one of them. I’ve also introduced it to many friends that share my opinion. Also, I tried a blind comparison between the bottle and the nitro can. The bottle was clearly better.
