love this beer! Chocolatey, stout goodness. If you like coffee beers I would recommend trying the double chocolate

Smooth and creamy, pours pitch black with a light beige head. Pervasive aromas of chocolate and coffee, slight hint of smoke. Wonderful mouthfeel with mild carbonation. Taste mimicks aroma, with a very mild bitterness at the close. All in all, a fanastic sout, my favorite.

Definitely my favorite Stout that is so smooth and in my opinion sets the bar for all other stouts.

Simply the best stout I have tasted to date, more chocolate than any other chocolate stout I have tried. Delicious! --- TIP! To help retain head use a glass with a narrow opening.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2013 The head has a wonderful chocolate roasty smell,And the head stays in the glass.The head has chocolate flavor,And the body has that dark chocolate flavor as well.I can taste a little sweetness.It must be from the oats.This is the best stout I ever tasted.I just add a little hershey’s unsweetened cocoa,To thicken up the body a little.It’s so good.

Rarely have I had love at first sight so strongly as when I first discovered Young’s Double Chocolate Stout in a quiet moment before a friend’s wedding in Portland, ME. Like drinking the ideal chocolate cake. Bottled perfection.
