Fort Collins Brewery Chocolate Stout

What the brewers say

“A velvety smooth mouthfeel, satisfyingly roasty flavor, and medium body make this brew positively seductive. Subtle hops bitterness rounds out the character of roasted barley and chocolate malt in this proven classic.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Dark chocolate notes with a hint of date. Not overly roasty, but very pleasant for the style. Sweet milk chocolate with hints of coffee. Light earthiness and roasted chocolate character. Hints of sweet chocolate and dry cocoa. Mild vanilla and dark fruitiness.”

Flavor: “Bittersweet bakers-chocolate flavors yield to a dark fruit character mostly reminiscent of raisins. A bit of roasty bitterness lingers in the finish, but not overbearing. Medium dark chocolate notes with pleasant roast contrast. Fairly dry for a chocolate stout, but enough lingering flavor to encourage further sipping. Light-medium body.”

Overall: “Well balanced and well crafted stout with a nice note of bakers chocolate and roasted malts. A bit dry and thin, but extremely drinkable and good complexity for the low ABV. A pleasant beer with enough complexity to make it interesting.”
