Mackeson XXX Stout

Whitbread Beer Co

England

This was strong, but not in your typical triple stout way. It had a very chocolaty taste, one that kind of wore on after awhile. It wasn't bad, just strong. I can just imagine their commercials: "You got your chocolate in my beer." "You got your beer on my chocolate." I would treat this as a novelty beer, nothing more.

I loved this. It had a rich chocolate flavor, fairly sweet, and a creamy texture. I enjoyed this while decorating our Christmas tree (it helps take away the pain of having a 5-year old help). It also had a pleasant wine-like finish (you know, that feeling you get in your throat after drinking wine). Overall, I highly recommend this.
