    Youngs Choc Stout on Tap vs Can

    So I found a sports bar near by that carries Youngs Choc Stout in what I believe is on tap. I'm not 100% sure its on tap but it's not listed in the menu as "in a bottle". I've only seen it in my area, at Whole Foods or BevMo in a can.

    Two questions; Is this stuff sold in a bottle or keg?

    What would make it taste different in a can vs keg?

    Yes...it's sold in cans, bottles, and on draft.

    Taste difference would really depend on how it is served.
    Out of a bottle would be least desirable in my opinion, but the cans have the nitro/widget thingy, so they tend to add some creaminess to the beer.
    I'd personally also prefer nitro-served draft over a regular C02 push, and again, I just feel the creamy body melds better with this beer.

    Best thing to do is try them all

    I prefer it out of the can with the widget. Poured into a ice cold glass. mmmm
    Just because you can't hear them scream doesn't mean they don't. Save a plant, eat meat.

    I enjoy it from a can once and a while.

    Freshness makes a huge difference

    from the tap, in a growler or a keg its going to be fresher then a can/bottle. If you like stouts, look for rasputin stout on tap.

    Draft is always better, they have it at the Flying Saucer (multiple locations nationwide).
    Never found a beer that was not better as a draft beer
    Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.
