COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

12oz Bottle. Thanks Sean! Chocolate is a fitting title for this beer, in a good way. The aroma has that fermented then roasted brown aroma that’s really enjoyable. Characteristic house yeast and minerals but in. Hmmm. I was really expecting a sweet, dense, rich wheaty beer after that aroma and then notion of "chocolate." The body is incredibly dry, but structured. A slightly metallic twinge and the hint of ash from the roasted malt. I think this could have gone a number of directions and this one speaks of austerity, straightforwardness, and honesty.

12oz bottle poured into glass. Dark black pour with fluffy beige head. Aroma has hints of chocolate malt with a touch of light wheat. Flavor is definitely sweeter then I imagined. Nice chocolate lactose flavor happening. Great after dinner drink.

Thanks to the kind soul in the Tampa Crew that shared this one. Pours a medium stout brown with a white head. Nose is chocolate, cocoa, grain, earth, and some cookie. Flavor is similar with a nice mouthfeel- cocoa, chocolate, grain, and some earth make this a nice little stout. Very good.

msante79 (2224) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - JAN 6, 2012
12oz bottle. Pours dark brown with one finger tan head. Aromas of chocolate and some light malts. Favor is mostly chocolate, some grains, and some roasted malts. Mouthfeel was smooth and creamy almost like nitro. I was really surprised by this one. Could of drank several.

Dark, opaque black pour. Tan head disappears quickly. Smooth and toasty maltiness. Very good hop balance, approaching slight bitterness while erring on the sweet side. Very subtle chocolate taste. Good porter-like qualities with a light mouthfeel.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 31, 2011
Yet another bottle shared by emacgee. Black with a tan head. Nose is very much like a schwarzbier to me, grainy, roasty and some chocolate. Burnt caramel. Tastes surprisingly thin.

Bottle. Pours black with tan head. Nose/taste of milk chocolate, vanilla, clove, banana and burnt chocolate malt and grain. Light body - easy drinking.

nimbleprop (7489) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 23, 2011
12oz bottle pours a lightly viscous, opaque black with a spitty, clumpy, off white head. Nose of toasted malts, chocolate, multi grain bread, dried hay, nuts, a little coffee. Flavor is much lighter than the color or nose would let on; watered down malt, light brown sugar, watered down coffee, crackers, a little wheat. Medium bodied, dry finish. Smells pretty good, flavor is a bit too watery.
