Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: jimmy82063 on 02-05-2012

Our sweet stout is made in collaboration with Connecticut's favorite chocolatier, Munson's Chocolate. Copious amounts of oat malt produce a silky, full bodied beer laced with hints of roast and chocolate derived from dark malts. Each sip ends with a mild chocolate bitterness from Munson's proprietary cocoa powder, added generously to the brew. To round out this beer, we add several pounds of cocoa nibs at the end of fermentation to provide a fresh chocolate aroma.

Pours a very dark brown with a khaki colored head that was pretty thin. The smell was great with chocolate being the center star and then the earthy scent of truffle started to come through. The taste was heavy with milk chocolate and a bit of vanilla came through strong in the start and then the earthy spices making for a mellow finish. Very good but a little filling to have more than one at a time.

Hot/milk chocolate is the dominant aroma. Roasted malts, a little smokey/burnt, chocolate ruffled that is present but not over-powering. Finishes with a light body, medium to light carbonation and maybe a light hop bitterness on the aftertaste. Usually not a fan of the Hooker line but this one was tasty and I would buy it again.

02/20/13 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Top notch. The bittersweet elements of the chocolate used are fantastic with the sweetness of the stout. Big fan.
