Young’s most certainly delivered on the double chocolate in this stout! There is a nutty aftertaste that unfortunately lingers a bit too long.
After the first few sips of this, I thought I had found a winner with the strong chocolate taste, rich body and a smokey flavour releasing with each mouthful. However, then the nutty aftertaste arrived and didn’t want to leave. This stout maybe a grower after a few bottles. I personally am not a fan, but I imagine a lot of people will be.
