4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
my love affair with Youngs continues with what has become my favorite stout... no comparison to Guinness. opaque with fine beige lacing, aroma/flavor of chocolate, yes, but also strong coffee. nitro cans are the best. this is the stout that makes me look forward to chilly weather... and i dislike chilly weather!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Great look, looks like a stout shold, pours nice thick, but quick evaoporating head. Dark Caramel in color, Smells of coffee and chocolate (mocha) with a hint of walnut and raisin. Taste almost exactly like the smell, but the chocolate quicky goes away after the first few sips, but does kind of come back at the finish. Overall, not a bad stout, but I’ve had much better.

Lovely full stout with the chocolate coming through. It lacks a depth of flavour to take it over 4 stars for me though. But still lovely!

Di color nero impenetrabile con una fantastica schiuma di color nocciola fine e cremosa ma purtroppo evanescente. Profuma di fave di cacao, di cioccolato al latte, di cacao in polvere, toffee, vaniglia e una leggera punta di liquirizia. In bocca, anche se le sensazioni olfattive lasciano presagire un certo corpo, è fine e delicata, di facile beva. Finale tostato molto persistente.
