Young’s Double Chocolate Stout (Wells & Young’s Ltd) 3/5

This beer greets you with a sweet, earthy, chocolate aroma. There’s exceptional lacing and an almost impenetrable dark brown color. The taste is strongly smoky, with a tangy bitter aftertaste. From the name, I expected this to be a big, high ABV stout, but it’s only 5.2%. This is surprising, given that the strong taste could easily hide more alcohol. While it’s a perfectly serviceable stout, I expected more from a $3.49 import.
