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!

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.

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.

Bottle, aroma is vanilla and chocolate, taste is roasted coffee, bitter chocolate, and vanilla. Lighter body and not as sweet as expected

JDBaker11058 (1366) - Maryland, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Appearance: dark brown (near black) with a short, light beige head and no lacing. Aroma: strong aroma of sweet dark creamy chocolate, dark toasted malts and some fresh coffee. Taste: sweet dark and milk chocolates, cream, light vanilla, definite chocolate cookie notes. Finish: smooth and rich, lingering roasty sweet chocolate notes. Notes: For the big, sweet flavors, the palate was light enough to keep this from becoming a snifter-only sipping dessert beer. The chocolate cookie notes are unmissable. Really impressive.

Damico (2693) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Pours thick unclear black with a beige head. Aroma brings sweet cookie and some milk chocolate nice in the nose. Flavor brings vanilla and sweet cookies for sure on a lightly roasted dark malty body.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2014 From bottle. Nice chocolate malted notes, sweet with lactose and some cafe au lait. Carbonic-soy tang. Dark black opaque wit thin dark beige lacing head. Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation. Starts moderately sweet, nice roasted notes. Coffee, chocolate, soy, and carbonic tang. Mild biter hops with tannic notes, charred grain. Smoky char finish with nutty coffee grounds and smooth bitter after.

MadRobin (2070) - Silver Spring, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Opaque, near black with a 2-finger billowy tan head and excellent lacing. Aroma of milk chocolate, roasted malt, chocolate chip cookies, coffee and cream. Taste of milk chocolate, cookies, lactose, vanilla and molasses. Sweet, but with a slightly acrid aftertaste. Medium/light body and high/medium carbonization. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle I picked up in the Franklins General Store. Pours an inky black with some cloudy, off white head. Nose has a fair amount of milk chocolate, honestly, as lame as it sounds, this smells like a chocolate cookie, some malt, some cracker, a little toast, a bit of molasses. Flavor is heavier on the molasses, plenty of milk chocolate, definite tastes like high end chocolate though, brown sugar, cracker, caramel. Lightly sweet finish. Actually quite drinkable and well balanced.

A standout on a day of tasting. Nice sweet stout with the cookie sweetness, rounded and smooth, with enough bite to keep it balanced. Would like to have had a full pint of the stuff.

On draft at Not Your Average Joe’s in Gaithersburg, M.D. Pours pitch black, creamy tan head. Aroma is chocolate and roasted coffee beans. Bitter taste with some harshness leaving a chalky finish. Astringent aftertaste.
