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.

The best thing about this beer is its aroma which is very chocolate like and its appearance which a nice chocolate hue dark brown lacing head. Taste is a little watery for my liking, Small hint of chocolate maybe but not really. It is very malty and a step above your average stout. It canít even compare to my Founders Breakfast Stout..

Draft offering, black color with tan head that sticks around forever, nose is interesting to say the least, chocolate, marshmallows, roasted nuts, mouthfeel is deceptive, dessert like but full bodied, enjoyable stout all around..

Bitter & dry but overall pretty & smells lovely! Pours nearly black w/ a big tan head & good lacing. The aroma is roasty w/ a chocolate undertone. Taste is a nice blend of chocolate & roast. It finishes pretty dry by overall is quite a nice offering!

12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a dark brown with a khaki head of foam. The aroma has notes of rich chocolate, creme brulee, and malted milk balls. Sweet and chocolaty taste. Bigger body and medium carbonation. Good beer overall.

Growler from The Grove in Yardville, NJ. I thought this was retired, so was surprised to find it. Translucent cola brown color. Small bubbly tan head. Big cocoa dark malt nose. Reminiscent of YooHoo. Flavor is sweet cocoa and spicy hops. Taste is a combination of Tootsie Rolls and herbal hops, with a touch of vanilla bean. Chocolate dominates the palate. More like a Porter than a Stout.

12 ounce bottle. A little light for a stout but still tasty. Not a strong beer, but it went down well. I thought the chocolate aroma was nice

Perhaps they have unretired this one as I just purchased it in a variety case of FF brews......pours a very dark brown with a slight tan head which doesnít hang around long.......aroma of chocolate and not much else, pretty much overpowering......taste is a thick but higher carbed taste of chocolate, very slight booze, hint of vanilla in the middle and finishing with sweet a mild bitterness.

Pours a dark black with tan head. A roasted malt and chocolate aroma. A strong chocolate taste with grains, roasted malts and some coffee. A lingering chocolate and roasted malt aftertaste.

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, Iím going against the flow here, I was underwhelmed. Aroma is nice but overall the beer didnít 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.
