Saturday Evening Post About Beer

Sorry for the delay on this one: I’ve been sick…

Enough with apologies, here’s the belated Saturday Evening Post!

:Young’s Double Chocolate Stout:

The first thing that stuck out about this beer was the Chocolate. If you were to drink cold Hot Chocolate and a Guinness at the same time, you’d be getting close to this stout. Yet the initial sweetness gave way almost immediately to a smooth, creamy savor that lasted just long enough to appreciate the dark chocolate flavor, but not long enough to make me resent it. Flavor location was on the outsides of the the tongue initially, and then on the back of the pallet in stage two. What aftertaste there was was pleasant and varied little from beginning to end. Overall an excellent choice when in the mood for a stout.

Overall: 4 Stars – ****
