COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Created by (Casey) Hughes, Exit 13 Chocolate Stout is named for the exit that provides access to Newark International Airport and the Port of Newark. Brewed with a mix of imported and domestic malts, as well as dark wheat, the stout gets floral, fruity and citrus notes from Irish ale yeast and Pacific Northwest hops. In total, Hughes and his team added 580 lbs. of Belcolade Dark Chocolate, then aged the beer with 200 lbs. of cocoa nibs and 12 lbs. of vanilla beans. Hughes recommends it as a dessert beer, and also describes it as perfect for sharing with friends as a winter warmer.

KajII (783) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - NOV 5, 2011
Bottle. It poured a very deep dark black with a large (2-3 finger) dense creamy medium brown head that lasted throughout and had exquisite lacing that stuck very well to the glass. The aroma right off gets you with a nice whiff of chocolate then a moderate roasted dark bread malt and a sweet leathery yeast with hints of dark roasted coffee, caramel, a touch of dark fruit and a tinge of citrus. The taste well lets just say "WOW" begins with a mild bitterness that has a nice note of coffee, then it progresses into a much sweeter flavor with a large dose of chocolate and a mild fruitiness at the end. The flavor only lasted an average amount of time after the swallow which was rather disappointing since it tasted so good. Mouthfeel was extremely full and chewy in body with the texture being super creamy and having a nice soft carbonation. Overall this brew with out a doubt is one of the best beers I have ever sampled. This one definitely makes my top 10 thus far.

Bottle from JT, thanks man! Beautiful thick viscous black pour with two fingers of mocha head. Aroma is coffee, milk chocolate and light hops. Taste is sweet up front, which morphs into some milk chocolate, followed by some roast next up is a light hoppy finish with a semi dry, mild bitter aftertaste. Very nice beer.

Bottle at home shared with me and myself. Thx Hopscotch. Pours opaque black with a creamy beige head. The aroma is hard roasted malts, chocolate and coffee. Lighter notes of vanilla. The flavor is bitter malty with bitter chocolate and roasted coffee notes. Light body. Bitter roasted finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DocLock (7915) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 22, 2013
Shared bottle. Pours hazy dark blackish brown with khaki head.Nose is roasty dark malt, backup hops, cacao. Tastes of roasty dark malt, cacao, late hops, and some molasses mid-palate notes, I suspect from the nibs.

Elwood (3311) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Serving: 750 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a viscous black with a thick, frothy, tan head. The nose is roasty with slight mineral notes. The flavor has a lot of roasted malt with a slight dark, fruity underpinning. Those mineral notes show up on the back end with a roasted bitter finish. A little tobacco emerges as the beer warms. Full bodied with average carbonation and a long finish. Tasty stuff.

Damico (2613) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Pours unclear dark as the Belgian dark chocolate added to the beer, with a caramel head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is delicious roasted malts and toasty chocolate notes so nice in the nose after a few years of development. Flavors have some sweet chocolate boozy notes and roasted malts with developed yeast notes. The body is just creamy and smooth enough.
