A festive favourite in the Young’s family tree, Double Chocolate Stout has been tickling our taste buds since 1997. Classified as a milk stout, it’s safe to say it’s anything but light. Dark, rich and brewed with real chocolate its mocha after tones make it the perfect accompaniment to a cold winter’s night, and whilst we prefer it relaxing next to a roaring fire it’s certainly no stranger to the kitchen. From savoury to sweet its versatility has made it a go to Stout for chefs and bakers alike. To celebrate National Brownie Day we thought we’d share our favourite Double Chocolate Stout Brownie recipe below.

Santa has come early, and for a limited time only you will be able to find Young’s Double Chocolate Stout on draft in a selection of our pubs. Not lucky enough to catch it this time? Fear not as you’ll still find it pride of place in our bottled selection all year round.
