Full Tilt Brewingís BERGER COOKIE CHOCOLATE STOUT is brewed with Baltimoreís 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 Tiltís homage to DeBaufre Bakery. "Anytime is a good time, with Berger Cookies"... and Full Tilt!

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a borderline black color. The khaki head is about two fingers high; personally, I could use a creamier texture, but thatís just my aesthetic preferences talking. It also has decent retention. S: Well, this brings some decent chocolate character...itís definitely not Choklat in that department, and thatís forgivable considering itís a single. Some slight espresso, cream, and even floral hops make themselves known. Iíve never had Berger cookies before (blasphemy!), but I can tell there isnít much in the way of a cookie note here. Otherwise, this aroma is rock-solid. T: The chocolate flavors here are frontloaded on the palate. After it immediately hits the tongue, the flavor shifts towards a nutty, almond-y tone, before a dry and slightly bitter finish. Probably my favorite feature here ISNíT the cookie flavor - thatís too mild and frankly disappointing - itís how well the floral hops balance the chocolate sweetness. M: Very creamy, which is nice. Rather thin...which is not-so-much. However, itís thin body and dry finish makes it very easy to drink. I could almost chug this if it were less sweet. Of course, then it would fail as a dessert beer, which is what this is all about. O: The lack of a defined cookie character is disappointing - it makes this come off like a regular chocolate stout in its stead. Realign your expectations for this one: the cookie addition is more a gimmick in an otherwise solid chocolate stout, and doesnít have much of an effect, good or bad. While I have to dock ever so slightly because of this, itís still an enjoyably quaffable dessert beer.
