Double Chocolate Beer Love
My normal beer of choice isn't anything unusual. I enjoy Bud Light, Dos Equis and of course Lone Star. I am a good Texan girl, ya know. But when I want to savor a beer, to revel in the flavor of a very good beer, I choose one that is not only a non-Texas brand but *gasp* not from the states at all. I prefer a beer from Wandsworth, Britain. There, I've said it. I am officially out of the closet. Established in 1831, Young's Brewery has a full line of beers with outlandish sounding names such as Kew Brew, Ram Rod, Waggle Dance and more. The one that I luxuriate in is Young's Double Chocolate Stout. Chocolate malt and dark chocolate are combined with a rich, robust beer and the end result is delightful. The liquid even feels smoother, creamier and a single glass more satisfying than a regular beer. An acquaintance of mine once remarked that sipping a Double Chocolate Stout was like drinking a beer milkshake. Won't you relish one with me sometime?
