COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Full Tilt Brewing’s BERGER COOKIE CHOCOLATE STOUT is brewed with Baltimore’s legendary dessert. This Sweet Stout starts with grist of 2-Row Pale, Crystal 85L, Carapils, Chocolate Malt, and Chocolate Wheat. The Berger Cookie character begins by adding actual Berger Cookies and lactose to the boil with Nugget and Tettnang hops for balance. Cacao Nibs are added during secondary fermenation enhancing aroma. Finally, vanilla is introduced in the brite tank rounding off Full Tilt’s homage to DeBaufre Bakery. "Anytime is a good time, with Berger Cookies"... and Full Tilt!

Draft sample at MD Craft Beer Fest, opaque black color with tan head. Aroma notes of roasted malt, milk chocolate, caramel and some light coffee. Taste adds vanilla, cocoa, light cookie dough, some nuttiness and faint smoke. Medium body, low-moderate carbonation, creamy with sweet roasty finish. Nice cookie flavored milk stout.

Draft at Urban BBQ. Dark black with thin tan head. Nice effort at a sweet stout... Loads of sweet milk chocolate and vanilla. Smooth and easy to drink. Paired well with the brisket and pulled pork...

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark brownish black pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of roast, acidic malt, slight cookie, chocolate, hints of smoke, vanilla. Taste was a mix of bread, caramel, chocolate, coffee, hints of oak, cookie notes come through when warmer, finishing slightly sour, slightly sweet.

Holdwine (1116) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 29, 2015
A bit above average for a stout. With extra points for the cookies. Easy to drink stout with a ton of chocolate and some damp hay. I like to see a brewer embrace their city.

Maxbier (655) - Maryland, USA - MAR 8, 2015
Dark brown/black with brown head. Roast malt and spice aroma. Roasty bitter up front, medium light body with lingering spice and some cocoa. Very dry with chocolate and cookie spices. Much better at 54°F than refrigerator (35°F).

GenDV138 (2976) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - DEC 29, 2014
4 oz pour on draft at 45th Street Taphouse. Black with tan head. Aromas of caramel and chocolate. Tastes of caramel, chocolate, light roast. Medium body with a dry finish. Better than last year’s debut but still not quite there on the Berger cookie flavors.

Sparf (162) - Östersund, SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2014
Provdatum okänt. Stor chokladarom med en liten lakritston och örtig pepprighet. I smaken ännu mer choklad. I princip flytande kakao. En torr avrundning och en lång eftersmak. Färg och skum helt bra.

jbruner (2873) - Athens, Georgia, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Pours a deep brownish black from the bottle with minimal ring of tan head that leaves light lace. Aroma is typical oatmeal stout, roast and soy, light sweetness. Taste is sweet chocolate and biscuit, slight hint of roast, I get the cookie for sure. Thin but nice, easy to drink, good stuff.
