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.

Bottle. It poured a very deep dark black with a large (2-3 finger) dense creamy medium brown head that lasted throughout and had exquisite lacing that stuck very well to the glass. The aroma right off gets you with a nice whiff of chocolate then a moderate roasted dark bread malt and a sweet leathery yeast with hints of dark roasted coffee, caramel, a touch of dark fruit and a tinge of citrus. The taste well lets just say "WOW" begins with a mild bitterness that has a nice note of coffee, then it progresses into a much sweeter flavor with a large dose of chocolate and a mild fruitiness at the end. The flavor only lasted an average amount of time after the swallow which was rather disappointing since it tasted so good. Mouthfeel was extremely full and chewy in body with the texture being super creamy and having a nice soft carbonation. Overall this brew with out a doubt is one of the best beers I have ever sampled. This one definitely makes my top 10 thus far.

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 doesnt 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, 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.
