Chocolate Stout is a one-off brewed with cacao nibs from artisan producer Neapolitan Printing & Company. The beer is based on a simple oat stout recipe and incorporates the chocolate in a way that enhances the profile all around, bringing the roast elements forward and providing a pleasant bitter edge. At only 5% abv, the medium bodied beer drinks nicely and is a great pint pour for the thick of winter.

On draught at Saraveza for My Beery Valentine 2013. Nice smokiness adds depth to the chocolate cocoa flavor.

Nearly black in color with an off-white head. Nose is very roasty and has a lot of coffee to it. A hint of smoke, some sweet milk chocolate, and a touch of toast. The flavor is also quite roast forward. Big coffee, chocolate, and some smoke. A touch dry and bitter on the finish. Moderate caramel and chocolate sweetness up front.

Sample on tap at St Augustines. Black as expected. The chocolate is upfront, but comes across as an additive, which it is. Its okay. Not great.

mcberko (14632) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 19, 2013
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a near-black with a tiny ring of beige head. Aroma is subtle, with dry cocoa powder, a bit of bitter toasted malts, and a metallic tinge. Flavour of bitter dry cocoa, bitter toasted malts, and a touch of espresso. Quite bitter and very dry in the mouthfeel. Good, but a little thin and a tad too harsh in astringency.

This beautiful black beer has undertones of brown. It has a roasted flavor and clean not over powering taste. A slight bitter finish gives this beer a little more complex flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A very good chocolate stout. Pours a deep black with white-tan head. Smells like sweet chocolate. Taste is chocolate and milky, with a slightly hoppy finish. Had on tap at Alembic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap @ Upright... Poured black with a moderate, off-white head. Nose had lots of coffee, mocha, and chocolate notes. Nice maltyiness. Husky and worth with enough and roast to balance all the sweetness going on. Mild to no bitterness depending on your palate. Clean, nice drinking stout.
