Established in London since 1831, Young's Brewery is one of the last independent, family-owned breweries in the English capital. With this Young's Double Chocolate Stout, you will discover a typical London style of beer accompanied by a very chocolatey homemade touch. Indeed, this beer, which responds to the style of Stout beers, is made with “chocolate” malts. They are named for their advanced roasting and the black color that this intense roasting gives them. These malts are frequently used in the brewing process. But, in this case, they are combined with dark chocolate extracts, an interesting characteristic that gives “Double” Chocolate its name. In the glass, this Young's Double Chocolate Stout has a magnificent opaque black color, crowned by a relatively persistent cap of brown foam. It gives off powerful and roasted aromas of malt. On the nose, we find notes of very dark chocolate and roasted cocoa beans. A slightly smoky and ash-like appearance is also perceived. As the beer warms in the glass, light hints of plum and vanilla begin to come through. On the palate, it has a very silky and unctuous texture. The attack on the palate is soft, not very sweet. Then, this Young's Double Chocolate Stout reveals an incipient and slight bitterness that disappears at the end of the mouth. Roasted flavors begin to be perceived. These flavors remain smooth and disappear at the end of the mouth.
