BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Thomas Hooker Brewing Company
Connecticut, United States
hookerbeer.com

Style: Milk / Sweet Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.10%

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 from bottle into non-tulip wine glass. Ate with Tate's chocolate chip cookies. Nice pairing!

A: fairly nondescript, it looks like a common stout. Very dark like a deep burgundy wine. No light gets through this bad boy.. Opaque. S: bitter chocolate, semi-sweet, faint grass. T: actually it's faintly hop forward to me at the outset. You then get the strong roasted malt body, finished nicely with a nice cocoa powder. Goes great with the cookies, blends beautifully. F: smooth for a larger abv. Feels like it could hit you on the first sip by mellows out. O: this is actually the first Hooker beer I've tried and I like it. I love chocolate stouts and this is a good one.

Before we get started here, please understand I am not a fan of any flavored beer...

A - Looks rich, creamy, SUPER dark with a nice lacy, frothy head.

S - Smells super sweet and chocolaty... super chocolaty, a little yeast in the back of the whiffer.

T - Overpoweringly chocolate. Overpoweringly sweet chocolate, way to much for me.

M - Feels super creamy and smooth, nice level of light carbonation, perfect for a dessert beer.

O - I would prefer a little less chocolate and maybe some more dark roasted malts to balance the sweetness. Many chocolate stouts have off flavors such as bitterness, not this beer.
