Young's Double Chocolate Stout is an addition to their already established and popular ale products. The double chocolate comes from containing both chocolate malt and chocolate flavouring. In my experience it is not found in as many places as traditional Youngs ales, but you can occasionally find in larger supermarkets as well as off-licences or other food stores which have a particularly well stocked ale section. It retails at around £2.50 for 500ml. It comes in an attractive 'real ale' style curved bottle with dark glass and purple labelling. It contains 5.2% alcohol which translates to 2.6 units per bottle. On pouring, it is rich and dark ... Read the complete review

Think of that perfect combination of beer AND chocolate and you have Young’s Luxury Double Chocolate Stout. As a long standing chocoholic AND beeraholic this was my dream come true. I HAD to sample these delights so I purchased a couple of bottles, for my husband and I (I hate to drink alone), and trundled merrily off home to give my taste-buds a treat. I was itching to enjoy that taste of promised luxury! Produced at Young’s Brewery in Wandsworth, it is a really dark ruby stout with a creamy bubbly head. Double Chocolate Stout is made from pale malt, chocolate malt, crystal malt, roasted barley, sugar and Goldings and Fuggles hops. They even add ... Read the complete review

Can we dedicate ops? Nobody knows. I don't care then and will totter blithely over convention and trample it into the earth with my sensibly clad size 9s. Step forward jillmurphy, this one's for you. jillmurphy, lower case dooyoo giant, doyenne of the childrens book review, giver of sound advice, answerer of e-mails but most of all, legendary lover. Eh? Damn! Legendary lover of all things chocolatey. (Sorry, I still haven't got the new iMac keyboard yet). You'll enjoy this one, jill. It's got it in. And you can taste it. You can. Hang on though, this isn't running true to form. I had a go at Young's Waggledance because ... Read the complete review

A few years ago my hubby came home with a couple of bottles of this stuff and asked whether I'd like to try it. Well, I'm not really a beer fan, though I do quite like stout, and I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical about combining beer with chocolate, but being a committed chocoholic, the idea of a chocolate stout fascinated me, so I tried it. The stout pours much like any other and you end up with a lovely creamy head. I gave the glass a sniff and you really do get a slight hint of bitter chocolate! I took a small sip and to my utter surprise this stout is really good! It has a lovely rich flavour, a very smooth, creamy taste and you do get a slight ... Read the complete review

When I first saw this on the shelves in Tesco's I thought that the double chocolate brand was to do with the colour or the brew.When I realised it actualy had chocolate in it I had to have a bottle just to see how horrible it would be. Imagine my surprise when I found myself actually enjoying it. The chocolate flavour comes out slightly as an after taste but it is very pleasent. My overall opinion of it was a very nice drink to have with a meal perhaps. But you would not want to drink it all evening Youngs is a very old family brewery in Wandsworth South London. They brew some exremley good and very strong ales. They still own a good many local pubs and still use ... Read the complete review
