Young’s Double Chocolate Stout (England, 5.2% ABV)

Young’s Double Chocolate Stout is brewed Wells and Young out of the UK. It showcases how well these two known quantities can be combined. It pours a nice thick head. It’s rich tasting even for a stout. Unlike some “chocolate” stouts the dark chocolate flavor comes through along with a satisfying maltiness without being a beatdown. Despite the name, it’s not too sweet. I like the mild bitterness and clean finish as well. I didn’t however get the butterscotch aroma some reviewers picked up on. The alcohol content for this beer is 5.2%. If you see it in your area check it out.  I had it on tap at Jimmy’s #43 in the East Village. I will get this beer again but because the chocolate combined with stout is so decadent it’s relegated to “special occasions.”
