COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Created by (Casey) Hughes, Exit 13 Chocolate Stout is named for the exit that provides access to Newark International Airport and the Port of Newark. Brewed with a mix of imported and domestic malts, as well as dark wheat, the stout gets floral, fruity and citrus notes from Irish ale yeast and Pacific Northwest hops. In total, Hughes and his team added 580 lbs. of Belcolade Dark Chocolate, then aged the beer with 200 lbs. of cocoa nibs and 12 lbs. of vanilla beans. Hughes recommends it as a dessert beer, and also describes it as perfect for sharing with friends as a winter warmer.

DATE: January 6, 2017... OCCASION: Friday of a short week needs something strong... GLASSWARE: Guinness pint... pours a dark black body supporting a two-finger light brown head, creamy and foamy like a sponge... nice peat, toasted malts, slight citrus as promised, lactic acids, and earthy coals--not to mention a bit of chocolate... a gritty, grinding abrasive texture on the tongue that vibrates down the throat... a warming smoothness replaces this by mid-glass... at this point, beautiful lacing paints a cirrus sky... chocolate takes center stage, with secondary notes of phenol, scotch-like peat, and light lemon zest... vanilla, lactic milk, and earthiness that produces a lingering sweetness... chocolate, yes indeed--and the "export" stress is appropriated here, with a staunch yet creamy experience at its end... a great example of this style, and a powerful one at that...

Tap at brewery. Actually, Im going against the flow here, I was underwhelmed. Aroma is nice but overall the beer didnt seem well integrated. Although it improved as it warmed, and was good, it never developed into something great. A bit thin for a choco-stout at 7.5% and the chocolate was there, but seemed to fight against the rest ff the beer.

12 oz bottle poured into glass. Pours black with a one finger tan head with nice lacing. Aroma and taste is of roasted malts, chocolate, sweet malts, coffee, vanilla, sweet malts, and caramel. Has a medium body with a creamy, velvety mouthfeel and a mostly sweet, long finish. Overall, a tasty chocolate stout that would be a nice dessert beer.

Dark pour, a thumb of head. Black coffee and dark chocolate aroma. Dark chocolate dominates here, slightly bitter, cocoa, black espresso, sweet but not cloying. Medium to fuller body. A chocoholics beer, especially those that appreciate a good slab of dark chocolate.

Bottle from JT, thanks man! Beautiful thick viscous black pour with two fingers of mocha head. Aroma is coffee, milk chocolate and light hops. Taste is sweet up front, which morphs into some milk chocolate, followed by some roast next up is a light hoppy finish with a semi dry, mild bitter aftertaste. Very nice beer.

Bottle at home shared with me and myself. Thx Hopscotch. Pours opaque black with a creamy beige head. The aroma is hard roasted malts, chocolate and coffee. Lighter notes of vanilla. The flavor is bitter malty with bitter chocolate and roasted coffee notes. Light body. Bitter roasted finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours dark brown, almost black, with a medium tan head. Aroma is cocoa, dark chocolate, a little coffee. Taste is medium sweet, more chocolate leading to a bitter, roasted finish. Medium bodied, nice chocolate stout.

Shared bottle. Pours hazy dark blackish brown with khaki head.Nose is roasty dark malt, backup hops, cacao. Tastes of roasty dark malt, cacao, late hops, and some molasses mid-palate notes, I suspect from the nibs.
