Wells & Young’s Brewery Young’s Double Chocolate Stout – Milk / Sweet Stout at 5.2% ABV

Wells & Young’s Brewery Young’s Double Chocolate Stout Milk / Sweet Stout at 5.2% ABV (C$3.52 at NLC Stavanger, 500 ml, best before 16-Apr-2016, reviewed 26-Nov-2015)

Appearance: clear deep brown with two fingers of fluffy tan head, heavy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: dark chocolate, coffee, roasty malt. (8/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate-low carbonation, off-dry bitter finish. (4/5)

Easily the best thing that Wells & Young’s makes: rich chocolate flavour balanced with sweetness that, though emphatic, never comes across as cloying. It’s not complicated, by any means, but it’s fun. (And the free chocolate balls were good, too!) (16/20)
