Young’s Double Chocolate Stout

Out of the bottle but still a nitro poured appearance. Small, perfectly formed light tan colored head sits atop the jet black body. It promises much.

Definite sugar, confectionery type aroma, but not as chocolate laden as the name or the anecdotal evidence would suggest. Certainly some cocoa type undertones, but surprisingly controlled.

I get some acidity that I wasn’t expecting and little more bitterness than others in the Milk/Sweet style. I guess that’s the chocolate coming through with a little bite. Layered malts complete the experience.

Mouthfeel is predictablely excellent, with a good, smooth coating all over the place. Very drinkable too.
