Youngs Double Chocolate Stout Picmonkey

Double Chocolate Stout

 

Young’s Brewery

Bedford England

Style: Stout

Alcohol: 5.25%

IBUs: Unknown

Serving Style: Bottles, cans and kegs (our sample from draft)

Availability: Year around in world-wide markets

 

Appearance:   “Dark—somewhere between sable and black, we’d say.”

Aroma:  “Roasted coffee followed by dark chocolate.”

Taste:   “The chocolate and some feeling of sweetness really comes through early, but there’s a counterpoint of slight bitterness toward the mid-to-late palate and on through to the finish.”

Food Affinity:   “Brownies with chunks of walnut (chocolate on chocolate). Or, for something savory maybe turkey mole or other slowly cooked meat in a rich sauce.”
