Pours dark brown to black, minimal head, medium sweet. Roasty with strong chocolate and hint of coffee. Good stout that is only lightly bitter.

the aroma is not as strong as i thought it would be, and is sweeter than the actual taste, slightly "boozy". appearance is pretty black with a creamy tan head that lasts. taste is a decent balance between hoppy and malty, not as chocolatey as i expected, with a slightly bitter finish. just ok, not bad but not my favorite. i have had other "chocolate" porters and stouts i like better.

Appearance: clear deep brown with two fingers of fluffy tan head, heavy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: dark chocolate, coffee, roasty malt. (8/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate-low carbonation, off-dry bitter finish. (4/5)
Easily the best thing that Wells & Young’s makes: rich chocolate flavour balanced with sweetness that, though emphatic, never comes across as cloying. It’s not complicated, by any means, but it’s fun. (And the free chocolate balls were good, too!) (16/20)

I didn't take any extra notes when I tried this beer for the first time but I'm gonna try it again and update my comments.

Originally rated on 4/1/08- Youngs Double chocolate stout delivers what it promises. Aroma, flavor and appearance of dark chocolate influence, sweet but not overwhelming, well balanced. Worth a try stout fans.

Poured from a 16 oz can into a pint glass at the "World of Beer" in Kennesaw, Georgia. Appearance- black as coal with a large tan colored head. Aroma- cocoa up front with a heavy dose of malt. Taste- chocolate and malt dominate, a very nice flavor. Overall, a very enjoyable beer.

Bonne mais loin d’être transcendante non plus.
Le nez est extrêmement faiblard, on sent un fond chocolat caféiné.
La bouche est très équilibrée, assez amère mais reste légère et manque encore de corps pour moi.
À tester éventuellement, pour ma part je ne pense pas y revenir.

Pours so dark no colour gets through with 2 fingers of head and great lacing. Its almost like drinking a smooth chocolate cream pie. One of the greatest.

A very nice stout to taste without moderation. the chocolate taste is thin, with a long finish. A pure pleasure !!
