Humble comfort in every sip
Chocolate Wheat is a Porter brewed with chocolate malt, wheat malt, and well-chosen specialty grains. The combination creates a deep black, full-bodied beer that provides subtle hop flavors and rich malt tones. Chocolate Wheat balances the flavors of roasted caramel, coffee, and chocolate, which ends in a smooth finish.

Bottle: dense, dark brown pour that appears much closer to black once it all reaches the glass; topped with a chunky, Styrofoam looking head, beige-tinted, that leaves a few spots of lacing as it slowly recedes. Aroma is fill of dark chocolate cocoa nibs, light malt roastiness, & a slight coffee bean undercurrent. Waves of rich fudge cake bring in the rear with a sweetness that leans close to residual sugar territory. Taste starts with some sweet baker’s chocolate, but actually has a quite roasty & predominantly bitter mid-palate & finish. A heavy, almost charred roasty character sweeps in with bitter dark cocoa beans, light anise, & a very faint bitter coffee grind flavor that lingers in the aftertaste. Thin for a wheat stout, but this year’s batch has much more body than previous releases. Seems more roasty than usual, too, but I like it. Very nice.

koleminer20 (577) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Tap at HopCat in East Lansing. Pours a darker brown, tanish head that fades quickly with no head. The aroma is chocolatey with a hint of malt, not much more. The taste is light. Somewhat present with chocolate, a hint of vanilla, and some malty undertones. The mouth feel is very thin, and the lingering flavor doesn’t last long at all

Opaque dark brown beer, little tan head. Light dry palate. Sourish start rapidly followed by powdery dark chocolate and a pinch of coffee. Dry finish. Strange but beguiling!

Draft. Chocolate malt and light banana aroma. Dark brown with moderate head. Sweet dark chocolate and wheat malt aroma. Light bitter/ashy finish. Very nice - great use of wheat malt - wish there were more beers like this.

Mittenator (1287) - Michigan, USA - FEB 15, 2013
Light scent of milk chocolate and tootsie rolls that quickly becomes nonexistent. Thin head and light body. Chocolate upfront in the taste followed by intense malt, coffee and weirdness. Can't figure out whether I like the finish or not. It's odd.

BBB63 (6019) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Bottle and served in a snifter: Pours a deep brown hue with a fading fizzy head and minimal lace. The aroma has notes of walnuts, toast, moderate chocolate, some char and leathery vapours along with a dash of plum esters. The taste is mostly nutty and bready with some chocolate notes in reserve. A dash of ripened dark fruit and a touch of coffee. Not getting much hop character other than some basic bitterness. The mouth feel is moderately carbonated, a bit ashy and metallic. It is an okay brew, no real flaws but nothing all that exciting either. Had higher hopes for this one.

Bottle. Pours seep black with a medium beige head that dissipates with decent lacing. Aroma is chocolate, tobacco, wheat, coffee. Flavor is much the same, medium sweet with a bit of spiciness and a very light coffee bitter finish. Medium-full body and creamy. Quite nice actually.
