Big Beige/Brown Head clings to glass. Nice, thick and a little sweet. Very silky. Chocolate malt notes come out in the taste. The guy that thought this was flavorless has no taste buds or they've been burned out by American style Pilsner's CO2 bubbles! I love this beer!

A bit too creamed out with the nitrogen widget. Still a great beer, just go with the bottled Youngs. HighlanderOne (1353) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - DEC 21, 2001
I could actually smell this stuff as i poured, an oaty, alcohol aroma. Very nice flavor, with a bit of a bite. Long lasting, creamy nitro head and nice finish. Glad I bought 8 of these to enjoy for the holidays. TheDarkertheBetter99 (27) - Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, USA - DEC 5, 2001
THICK. Smooth. A touch oily. Flavorless. Was that a beer I drank? Markedly divergent from the Luxury Double Chocolate Stout Young's makes. Bear Claws99 (3) - Lancaster, Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2001 does not count
Black, huge dense head. Roasty, mildly sweet aroma. Medium-light body, smooth, sweetly roasty, big English hop flavor. Fairly high carbonation - fizzy on the tongue.

Good beer (im enjoying this one) but nothing special........................ Oakes (18209) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 29, 2001
This was the first (and a rare) instance in which my notes directly corresponded with Jackson's: light body, very smooth, touch oily, drying in the finish. I like it, but it's not a knockout. dins (266) - Texas, USA - OCT 27, 2001
Blandest oatmeal stout I've had yet......................................... K-V-F-L (292) - LaVista, Nebraska, USA - OCT 25, 2001
Texture was solid, but on the whole the Smith's version pummels this one. Try this one first, then the other, and you'll see what I mean. Oat flavor is not nearly distinctive enough in the Young's version. A good hint of maple syrup, but I'm not sure that is really appropriate. jstu9 (402) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2001
I rated this a 4.1 on 4/4/2001 without writing anything. This is a thick rich flavorful beer. I'll hav to have another.
