COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Much has been said about the Danes. Like they seem reserved at first and are obsessed with bikes, food, and ’hygge’ - Danes are always on time, they appear liberal yet traditional and leave their babies outside in prams while they shop. We at Evil Twin Brewing teamed up with fellow Dane at Chocopologie and decided to set the story straight with a Chocolate Stout infused with smoked chestnuts and even more Denmark. The punctual aromas, comfortable taste and liberating body will make you feel like one of the happiest people on earth.

Draft. Maybe the 2nd chestnut beer I have had, these are smoke chestnuts nad the beer in result is kind of 1 dimensional nutty adn smoky, not a bad beer but completely devoid of any complexity.
