Full Tilt Brewings BERGER COOKIE CHOCOLATE STOUT is brewed with Baltimores legendary dessert. This Sweet Stout starts with grist of 2-Row Pale, Crystal 85L, Carapils, Chocolate Malt, and Chocolate Wheat. The Berger Cookie character begins by adding actual Berger Cookies and lactose to the boil with Nugget and Tettnang hops for balance. Cacao Nibs are added during secondary fermenation enhancing aroma. Finally, vanilla is introduced in the brite tank rounding off Full Tilts homage to DeBaufre Bakery. "Anytime is a good time, with Berger Cookies"... and Full Tilt!

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a borderline black color. The khaki head is about two fingers high; personally, I could use a creamier texture, but thats just my aesthetic preferences talking. It also has decent retention. S: Well, this brings some decent chocolate character...its definitely not Choklat in that department, and thats forgivable considering its a single. Some slight espresso, cream, and even floral hops make themselves known. Ive never had Berger cookies before (blasphemy!), but I can tell there isnt much in the way of a cookie note here. Otherwise, this aroma is rock-solid. T: The chocolate flavors here are frontloaded on the palate. After it immediately hits the tongue, the flavor shifts towards a nutty, almond-y tone, before a dry and slightly bitter finish. Probably my favorite feature here ISNT the cookie flavor - thats too mild and frankly disappointing - its how well the floral hops balance the chocolate sweetness. M: Very creamy, which is nice. Rather thin...which is not-so-much. However, its thin body and dry finish makes it very easy to drink. I could almost chug this if it were less sweet. Of course, then it would fail as a dessert beer, which is what this is all about. O: The lack of a defined cookie character is disappointing - it makes this come off like a regular chocolate stout in its stead. Realign your expectations for this one: the cookie addition is more a gimmick in an otherwise solid chocolate stout, and doesnt have much of an effect, good or bad. While I have to dock ever so slightly because of this, its still an enjoyably quaffable dessert beer.

Sample at Industry Night at HomeBrewCon. Rich vanilla and chocolate stout onslaught. I got an earful about these famous berger cookies. They must be pretty good if they are anything like this beer. Tasty.

Taste: Follows the nose, but not as strong, again bitter dark chocolate, cocoa, touch of coffee. Palate: Very smooth and creamy, medium body.

Highly disappointed for what this claimed to be. Really nice as a stout, but where is the chocolate? Why is there no sweetness? Honestly, this is not what I expected when you put Berger and cookie in the name. Nice and thick, good color, and good stout as a stand alone, but change the name. bottle

Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 16, 2015
Bottle in Baltimore. Black pour, almost no head. Aroma of chocolate, cream, bread, sugary malts, caramel and a hint of vanilla. Flavor is quite sweet, malty, sugary and a bit spicy. A little too sweet for me, but well made.
