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. Brand acquired solely by Charles Wells in 2011.
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.

Piwo barwy czarnej z rubinowymi refleksami. Zapach gorzkiej czekolady i stoutu. W smaku podobnie, gorzka czekolada i goryczka palonych słodów. Dobry stout.

Black color. Chocolate, cacao and roasted aromas. Sweet chocolate, dark chocolate, a lot of chocolate really. Dry finish.

Bottiglia. Il naso si riempie di orzo tostato. L’intensità olfattiva è flebile e la persistenza olfattiva è corta. Il cappello di schiuma ha una buona tenuta e finisce con un ampio pizzo sul bicchiere. La grandezza delle bollicine è media. Il colore è scuro impenetrabile. Il corpo è pieno. Il dolce è medio e l’amaro è medio: non si surclassano. L’intensità gustativa è elevata e la persistenza gustativa è sufficiente. Il gusto è piacevole. Il finale è pulito e dissetante. Il retrogusto è di media intensità. Il palato riporta sentori di miele, cioccolato, frutta secca e pane tostato.

Like the Youngs Oatmeal Stout, the bottled version is better. The canned version seems less substantive, lacking the flavor profiles of the bottles version. Very creamy though.

Interesting and definitely chocolatey. Vaguely reminiscent of liquid bakers chocolate. Mild as far as stouts go.

Quite a bit too thick; even for a stout. Massive head, passable flavor.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2002
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2003 Chocolate and vanilla, sweet and thin, with minimal roast, a bit unexciting, but easy to drink, not complex at all, some nice flavour though.

Probably drank too cold. Apparent chocolate taste. I think I should have purchased the bottled version.
