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.

Poured into a 13 oz tulip glass, bottled 12/10/13.Pours near completely black with a half of inch tan head, that leaves behind some webs of lace. Smell is bakers chocolate, coffee, vanilla, biscuit, and caramel. Taste is all of that, but chocolate dominates and isn't that aggressive, still a nice milf flavor. Body is on the thin side for a stout, nice amount of life, mildly dry, and extremely drinkable. This far from earth shattering, but it is a pleasant almost session able stout.

Dark brown and clear with faint edges and a fine tan cap. Thin head that stuck around for a while and left some spots on the glass. Roasty aroma, coffee and cocoa, kind of like chocolate cake. Sweet lactose up front, cocoa and semisweet chocolate, slight hop character with mild to moderate bitterness mostly in the finish. Medium plus body with medium to low carbonation, a bit dry with a hint of alcohol, decent texture. Pretty good, but it didn't feel completely melded together. I'd hesitate to let it sit though, for fear of losing some of the rich character.
