Availability: Winter

Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours an opaque jet black in color with some light hints of dark reddish brown when held up to the light. The beer has a quarter finger tall tan head that quickly reduces to a medium sized patch of extremely thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of dark chocolate with some lighter amounts of sweetness.

T: The flavors start out with some dark roasted, almost burnt malts that give a slightly bitter coffee taste. Next there is a pretty strong flavor of dark chocolate and cocoa nibs. There is also a light amount of milk chocolate sweetness in the finish.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly smooth.

O: Certainly the best offering I have had from this brewery and it is definitely enjoyable. I would get this beer again but it is more of a sipper than a session beer. Nice complexity of different chocolates in the taste and smell.

Not normally a summer beer, but a cooler night so hopefully this hits nicely.

Pours a darker mocha colored creamy 1 finger head fades slowly with pot marks and nice lacing, over not quite pitch black but very dark colored beer.

Nose brings nice chocolate, cocoa nibs, lots of very dark chocolate, mocha, and a bit of roast with hint of coffee. There is some dark caramel and a soft fluffy nougat like center with a hint of bready malts and creamy.

Taste starts creamy but follows with roast, a bitter slight acrid burnt coffee flavor with over roasted malt that was not expected. Then chocolate, some very bitter dark chocolate, light mocha and creamy milk chocolate but not as much as the nose. A light caramel and just a bit of earthy spicy hops. Finish is drier, slight acrid over roasted coffee, and light mocha, little caramel and burnt coffee lingering, with a touch of bitterness.

Mouth is med bodied, creamy and rich, decent carb.

Overall it would be really nice if not for the burnt acrid roasted flavor. Nice chocolate, creamy, drinkable, nice malts other than the acrid roast.

What can I say about a beer of this name.
A:Appearance is a dark chocolate body with a 2 finger creamy fluffed head that stays throughout.

S: The smell is of chocolate milk with a hint of caramel and toffee malts. Really something to look forward to.

T: The taste is out of this world. Roasted, dark chocolate malts are present throughout with a hint of coffee at the end.

O: Overall A perfect chocolate stout, even if it is out of season. Compared to other chocolate beers I have had, this one is on the tops. A great anytime dessert beer!

Who wouldn't want to try something named Chocolate Truffle Stout. That's like having 3 holidays all on the same day!

The color was a really dark brown and almost black with more of a coffee smell than a chocolate smell but it was a bit on the cold side. Either way the smell was pleasant.

It wasn't overly full in my mouth but also wasn't thin which was ok as I like a drinkable stout and not something that kicks me in the face. Smooth may be the right word. I could taste the chocolate both during the drink and during the aftertaste but the coffee seemed to still be there as well. A little mocha love mixed in there for good measure. A bit on the sweet side which I enjoy in a chocolate stout with just enough bitterness to balance it out.

In a new world full of chocolate beers this one stood out for me and I will certainly be back for more!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Black with rich brown highlights if held up to the light. A few millimeters of cocoa brown head disappear in seconds. Lacing slides down sides of glass and is re-assimilated into beer.

S: Chocolatey but with a subtle tinny-ness and hay.

T: Coffee wrestles with notes of dark chocolate, with the coffee having the upper hand at first but the chocolate coming out on top as it warms up. Roasty, almost smokey bitterness lingers at the back of the throat after each sip.

M: On the heavy side of medium. Call it rich with some cocoa grittiness.

O: Another chocolate beer. It's good but the field of choco-beers is filling up pretty rapidly, and I can't think of any way this separate from the pack. A nice dessert beer, but I don't see it catching on permanently and am willing to wait for winter for Sam Adam's Chocolate Bock to get my chocolate beer fix.

Pours deep brown with a good tan rocky head, some lace.

Maybe I've got this too cold. Barely any nose on this. Dark roasted malt, a little cocoa powder.

This drinks a bit like a coffee or chocolate porter. Malt forward, with good french roast coffee notes. Bitter chocolate essence, and more bitterness. As the palate clears, the chocolate nib element becomes very noticeable. Some slight sweetness, but this is more bitter dominant. Nice bitter cocoa finish.

A little thin in the mouthfeel, slightly watery. But, it helps because of the chocolate notes.

Overall, likable, with a decent balance and intensity in the chocolate department. I think a six pack would get old fast, but still worth a try.

The beer poured a rich chocalot brown with a creamy tan head. The aroma was chocalot malt. The taste was a bit more coffee than chocalot, which given the name, disappointed. The feel was light and a bit watery. A decent chocalot stout, but the name promised a bit richer more chocalot taste than was delivered.

Another new brew from Dino! Poured from bottle to pint glass the beer arrives a rich deep brown with a nice 1.5 finger khaki colored head, nice retention and lacing. The nose is rich and powerful: milk chocolate,cocoa, dark chocolate, roasted malt, nice. More approachable than expected. The flavor is more of the same. Likely the richest beer I've ever had! The roast and chocolate blend terrifically with a gentle sweetness and mild bitterness. Creamy and smooth the beer finishes with a lingering milk chocolate flavor. Wee carbonated, very nice. Overall, this is a serious treat! Very enjoyable!

Acquired via trade from cpolking so a big “Thank You” goes out to him. Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep dark brown color, with a short beige head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains roasted malts, milk chocolate and a faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out with a strong flavor of sweet milk chocolate that dominates the taste as you would expect. Then a hearty roasted malt character quickly comes in next. The hops presence is very mild but is exactly where it should be for the style and provides a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is dry and slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, decent kick, very good representation of style, this is a very solid chocolaty stout that is worth drinking for a long time.

12oz bottle into Duvel tulip. After really enjoying the Munson's beer brittle my grandmother got me (made with "Thomas Hooker brewed Lager"), figured I'd try Hooker's end of the collaboration.

Appearance: Free pour yields a half inch light tan head that dissipates immediately and lacelessly. Pours black with red highlights. Leaves a streak of lacing now and then.

Smell: Raisinets. Milk chocolate. Halloween makeup.

Taste: First sip: lots of chocolate up front and in the middle. Raisinets finish. These flavors aren't bad, but I'm hoping to taste some beer on the next sip.

A bit of roasted malt comes out along with the mouth-coatingly strong chocolate. Hint of that halloween make-up smell as a taste in the aftertaste, which is pretty disgusting.

Not very good.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, smooth and creamy. The vessel is good, but its cargo is not.

Overall: It takes a deft hand to combine strongly flavored ingredients like chocolate and beer. Such dexterity is not in evidence here.

Another reminder of why I've avoided this local brewer for so long. Have a bottle of Liberator to review later that could very well be redemptive, but Chocolate Truffle Stout isn't getting my hopes up.

Poured from a 12-ounce bottle into a 0.3 cL stemmed glass.

A: Pitch black with faint ruby highlighted edges when held to the light. A one-finger head of frothy, tan foam builds to a thin layer of carbonation which forms a slight, creamy ring around the glass.

S: Loads of cocoa powder, coffee beans, roasted malts and sweet, dextrose-filled aromas to go with a bit of burnt, earthy smell.

T: Nice, sweet and chocolatey up front with some initial malt bitterness derived from burnt, specialty black malts. A slow warming bitterness builds towards mid-palate, with another quick hint of dark cocoa nibs before spiking with a chocolate-covered orange rind bitterness. This fades to a bittersweet, malty and roasty finish.

M: Rich, smooth and full-bodied stout with a balanced, herbal bittersweetness to cut through the robust, chocolate and coffee notes of the malt.

O: Finally, a stout from Hooker, Munson's Chocolate Stout is a nice dessert beer option at a deceptive 5.9% ABV. Its a relief to see them take on a style they were albeit willing to conform to their standards. That is to say, the brewery is probably not going to be launching a "big beer" series anytime soon, so it's nice to see their offering for this uniquely Americanized style done well.

Chocolate truffle stout eh? How can I not give this one a try? Picked up a six pack for $7.99 back home in CT. Pours jet black with a nice tan head. Taste is medium bodied, smacks you with chocolate malts upfront, nice hoppiness on the back end. Super smooth and drinkable. Not too sure about the truffle part.. but one of the better chocolate stouts I've had, solid beer.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Pours black oil colored with a little foam remaining. Sweet chocolate smell. Like a box of candy. Taste is on the lighter side - very thin with a light chocolate & coffee layer. Fast finish. Small lingering hop at the end.

Good taste, not at all hearty for stout. The chocolate is nice, but the finished product is just ok.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours black with a one-inch beige head. The head settles a little but never fully goes away. Rings of lacing.

S: Hot cocoa mix, roasted malts, faint charcoal, earthy yeast. Citrusy hops, and only the faintest whiff of vague fruit.

T: Cherry-like estery tastes open, but are quickly overtaken by tastes of cocoa powder and roasted malts. Charcoal and a faint kiss of smoke. Baker's chocolate too. Quick, subtle flash of lemony citrus and a touch of hop oils. Long finish of charcoal, smoke, and cocoa powder.

M: On the thicker side of medium bodied. Very slightly viscous, creamy, and silky. Low carbonation.

O: Does it taste chocolatey? Certainly. Does it taste like a truffle? Not really. Still, there's a lot to like here and not much to critique. A great dessert beer.

Notes: Surprised that this one didn't hit our market sooner, with all the other chocolate beers conveniently arriving around Valentine's Day.

born on February 3, 2012

A: Looks like a stout.

S: Thick chocolate, but when I swirl and sniff too much, I get a really odd, plasticy smell the reminds me of horse manure (although it doesn't actually smell like manure--it's quite odd but unwelcome nonetheless).

T: Lots of chocolate that is neither very sweet nor bitter, then roasted malts with a touch of balancing bitterness (I'm not sure if it's char or hops). No manure on the taste. This is very chocolatey, and it's definately a dessert beer, but it's not cloying.

M: Pleasantly medium-full, suiting the chocolate well.

O: Not a style I ordinarily go in for, but this is an enjoyable beer. One does the trick though.

Poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass

Appearance: 1 inch head, moderate carbonation, dark brown in color, clear

Smell: big cocoa, sweet and dark chocolate, roasted malt

Taste: big cocoa, sweet and dark chocolate, roasted malt

Mouthfeel: sweet with a touch of bitterness, moderate carbonation, very rich yet still light bodied

Overall: Like opening a box of Valentine's Day chocolates. One of the better chocolate beers out there because the chocolate is so complex and rich. Yet the beer element here is also nice and complex. Due to its richness, I only want one or two per sitting, but would get this again. One of the better beers coming out of Connecticut.

12oz bottle served in a pint glass
After a somewhat aggressive pour this beer turns out very dark brown, just a shade lighter than black, with a light khaki head of about one finger. The foam falls to a thin layer of bubbles with a bit of lace on the sides of the glass. As the name suggests chocolate is in the smell but it isn't alone as there is also a standard compliment of dark and roasted malts typical of a dry stout but overall everything is a bit subdued. The taste is a bit of chocolate both from the added chocolate and chocolate malts along with a good deal of bitter roasted and black patent malt. Hop flavor is nearly non existent but it is still somewhat bitter to astringent due to the malt. The body of this beer is quite light which surprises me for a stout of this style, I'd expect something a bit fuller. The finish is slightly bitter and rather dry as astringent bittering from the roasted malt comes through, again I'd rather something a bit sweeter for this stout. Overall this is slightly above average. It is an interesting concept but suffers because the stout isn't right too best accentuate the chocolate. A sweeter, fuller and more complex (maybe higher alcohol?) base would have benefited this one.

Drank on-tap at Eli Cannon's Tap Room, Middletown, CT
Served in a pint glass

Dark brown/black in appearance. The oily liquid was topped by a small, frothy, saddle brown head that quickly faded to a flimsy collar.

The aroma was loaded with chocolatey goodness. Rich, sweet and smooth. Very fudge-like. Lots of vanilla. Some sweet cream. So simple yet so good.

Chocolate came through strong in the flavor profile as well. Good amount of roasted and caramel malts on the front end. Some black coffee in the center. Touch of vanilla. The finish, however, was so roasty, acrid and bitter that the beer tasted burnt.

The mouthfeel was medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Fairly typical for the style, but the liquid did have a nice creaminess to it.

As a child, I grew up eating Munson's Chocolates during the holidays. I find it funny now to be drinking a beer made with chocolate from this family-owned, Connecticut-based company. All in all, a nicely done stout. Hopefully this is only the start of Hooker Brewing's attempt to add some long needed diversity to their current lineup of beers.

Very fresh bottle dated only days before tasting. (Late February). Poured into a shaped pint glass.

A: Dark dark brown with a dark tan head that hangs around. Nice sticky lace after a few sips.

S: As expected, wonderful aroma of chocolate and roasted, not burnt, malt. Well balanced, no artificial chocolate smell or anything oppressive.

T: Ahhh! The aroma didn't let me down! A very well constructed stout base with a pleasant hint of chocolate aftertaste. There is a great roasted character and noticeable presence of chocolate malt along with the actual chocolate.

M: Silky, well carbonated for the style, not too sticky or too thin either.

O: Overall a great stout... with chocolate. Hooker built a great flavored beer without skimping on the base style. Very drinkable. I was surprised how easy drinking it was. Now that I've tried it alone, I want to try it again pairing it with various foods. Well done!

Pours dark brown but sits opaque black in my vintage Magic Hat glass (I say vintage because it lists MH seasonals Jinx, St Gootz, HI.P.A. and Hocus Pocus). Georgia clay colored head that collars by mid glass. Leaves a few lacey drips.

Smells like Hershey's chocolate syrup. That's about it.

Again, Hershey's sysup dominates. Chocolate is good in a chocolate stout but how about some roast malt for balance, darker caramels for intrigue. Body is on the lighter side, maybe a tad slick.

A light and friendly chocolate stout as opposed to a dark an indulgent version. Would be great if the base beer was improved upon.

Got this as an extra in my first trade. Thanks davey101!

A- Pours a Deep brown, pretty much black color with a tan foamy head that is small but retains well. Decent lacing.

S- All chocolate maltiness. Big up front as the bottle is opened, but calms down a bit in the glass. Pretty mush straight chocolate scent.

T- Big, but not overpowering, chocolate flavors are prominent. Not a ton of sweetness in the chocolate, more of a dark chocolate flavor. Some burnt flavored malts back up the chocolate to give a little backbone.

M- On the lighter end of stout. High in carbonation, but not out of line for other stouts in the 6% ABV range. Adequate weight to support the flavor profile.

Overall, this is an average to slightly above average chocolate stout offering whose flavor is terrific, but it's scent and appearance are nothing special.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle stamped: 2012-02-09. Sampled on March 6, 2012. It pours a very dark, rich chocolate black with a moderate, short-lived mocha head. Brewed with seven malts you get the chocolate, oat, and dark malts right up front on the nose with this acidic hop bite around the back. The body was thin the medium, which was a slight letdown. The bold flavor begins with sweet chocolate and cocoa then goes bitter and ends nearly dry. Its name sounded much more enticing than the experience but it was still a decent enough beer.

12oz bottle with a Born On Date of 2012-02-15. Pours a blackish dark brown with no head. No lacing. Aromas of chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla, chocolate truffles, and some coffee. Tastes chocolatey. Flavors of vanilla, coffee, some marshmallow, and truffle. Mouthfeel is a bit light and thin for the style but it still works. This is an easy drinking stout that isn't so chocolatey it slows you down. Overall, an interesting collaboration well executed. Worth seeking out.

A: Very dark brown pour with a mid-sized dense light brown head. Retention is quite good with nice lines of lacing as it is consumed.

S: Lots of bitter chocolate and coffee, like a cold glass of mocha. Strong roasted malt char is present as well - almost smells like burnt wood.

T: Strong coffee and roasted malt. Some nice creamy milk chocolate follows it. Bittersweet chocolate and coffee lingers in the aftertaste.

M: Quite smooth, a touch thin.

O: Not a bad chocolate stout. Pretty simple, surprisingly heavy on the bitter coffee and roast (given the name) but the chocolate is there to help balance it out decently.

Pours a little bit of a dark mocha head, some lacing with a deep brownish body.

Smells of milk chocolate or cold 'hot chocolate'. The truffel comes through as it warms. Some British stout like sweetness is there as well.

Tastes like a nice American stout with a shot of real chocolate sauce. The truffel like chocolateness is more present as this warms, the balance improves with temp as well.

Medium bodied, medium carbing, a touch of a clean bitterness keeps this one in check. It's fairly clean in the aftertaste yet some
coco powder remains to keep it interesting.

Overall this is a great beer just in time for the chocolate holiday of the year. This beer is a great new beer from hooker, let's see them keep up with the innovations. I'd buy this again.

$2 a single
