Young's Double Chocolate Stout
« on: September 25, 2010, 12:30:43 AM »
Amazing. Three years ago I had one and not as good as this. Pitch black. Smells like chocolate. Tastes like bitter chocolate. Light in body and mouthfeel- effervescent. Subtle hop bitterness.

Hey! I thought Young's brewery was a thing of the past? This stuff has been cropping up in places I haven't seen it at in quite a while.

This guy evidently loves it:

I sure hope they've upped the "oomph" in the recipe!
Just brew it...

Young's Wandsworth brewery closed but they formed a joint venture with Charles Wells. All their beers are  brewed in Bedford at the Wells brewery

It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

While I have not had it in awhile, at times it would be somewhat thin and other times manna from heaven. I prefer to remember the latter times...  ;)
