This beautiful stout is might at this time be my favorite. Pours dark dark brown. Smells sweet like chocolate, duh. Taste is much the same with the taste of creamy chocolate with some coffee undertones. Overall simply delicious. Kennybellew (11) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 12, 2012
I really enjoyed this stout. Creamy and feels great in the mouth. Nice chic and slight coffee flavor.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2013 This is one of my guilty pleasures (I say guilty because I can feel the calories accumulating when I drink this). Pours dark brown to black, with a nice foamy head. Looks nice and thick. You can immediately smell the chocolate, with some nice coffee / mocha and malt undertones. Really nice smell to start. Some beers don’t live up to the name, but you can tell by the smell alone that when it says ’Double Chocolate,’ that’s what you’re getting. Tastes very much like it smells, maybe just a smidgen less: strong chocolate, with a hint of coffee and some malt. Probably the strongest chocolate taste I’ve had in a chocolate stout -- which again, would be expected by the name. Wonderful mouth feel. Smooth and thick. Low carbonation. This sucker is almost like a beer shake. One of my favorites. A very nice chocolate stout that lives up to its name. Feels like an indulgence when I drink it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone Lenusik (119) - Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2013
I love stouts, and I love chocolate. So, why shouldn’t I love the mixture of the two? This is a beautiful black beer with a medium sized tan coloured head. The aroma of chocolate hits you right away and the nostrils think that heaven is comin’ down. The flavour of this beer does not disappoint. Roasted malt, lots of chocolate, and some coffee hints lend to a great experience, all finished up by a unique bitterness.

I have had this in the bottle, can, and on draft and the quality is consistent. This is a full bodied, yet very smooth beer. The chocolate really comes through and it is like drinking a rich dessert. The base beer has just the right levels of dry hop to override to sweetness and make this a great beer any time. MetalNHopHead (1886) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Apparently chocolate stouts from England are all required to be fantastic by law or something. Double Chocolate Stout is balanced yet rich. Apart from what the name suggests, chocolate is an element in this beer rather than a dominant flavor, which is great. This stout takes a close second behind Samuel Smith’s Organic Chocolate Stout in the running for "best English chocolate stout." hippiemusic (58) - Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2014
What can you say that’s bad. I get a roasted aroma, rich deep black color, and a beautiful bakers chocolate taste. Wonderful desert brew. Copperwulf22 (2) - Texas, USA - NOV 30, 2014 does not count
The beer was smooth and the chocolate flavor offsets the bitterness of the stout.

Pours almost black, shining and dark. Abundant rocky tan head, persistent.
High aroma is coffee, a very nice furfural note that reminds of oak-aged red wine; smoke, Maggi sauce, lilac, liquorice, iodine, tobaco, blackcurrant...
Creamy and silky. Well balanced, with an elegant finish with hints of chocolate and smoke. Exceptional.
