Young’s Double Chocolate Stout

From the Brewery: IMG_2446

“Luxurious and at the same time with a hint of decadence, Young’s Double Chocolate Stout has it all, delivering a satisfying, indulgent taste without ever becoming overly sweet.” 5.2% ABV

Purchased from Old Doc’s in Fresno, California.

The Pour: IMG_2447

Poured from a 16.9 oz bottle into my stout glass. The color is solid black, with a brown head that leaves light lacing. A tiny bit of carbonation is visible.

The Nose: IMG_2448

Sweet milk chocolate, chocolate syrup, malted barley/oats, roasted malts and faint lactose.

The Mouth: IMG_2449

Medium light bodied, with slight carbonation harshness going down. Chocolate is the main flavor, but a much more subtle bittersweet variety than the sweet milk chocolate in the nose. That being said, there is still a touch of milk chocolate in the flavor, as well as a typical stout barley flavor. The aftertaste is mostly  roasted oats/malts mixed with a bit more of chocolate.

Final Thoughts: IMG_2450

I’ve had this brew in the nitro can, on nitro tap, and in the bottle. All are slightly different, with the nitro tap being my favorite. The flavors are pretty similar to that in the bottle, but the creaminess of the nitro tap really makes it a liquid dessert. Young’s isn’t quite as delectable as Southern Tier’s Choklat, or Rogue’s Chocolate Stout, but for something widely readily available it’s not too bad. It is a decent stout with light, roasted chocolaty flavor. I think every beer drinker should try this beer at least once. 7.5/10
