Fort Collins Brewery - Chocolate Stout
Part of Ft. Collins' year-round offering. It's available on the East Coast, parts of the Midwest and, of course, Colorado.
Extremely dark brown, almost black. Thick and opaque.Dense, pillowy mocha head.
Roasted, malty aroma. Mildly smoky and a
dry, almost dusty, dark chocolate character.
Taste & Feel
The flavor is mostly an intensification of the aromas, roast and. malty. A touch of an earthy hops bitterness sneaks through before ending with a dry, bitter chocolate finish.
Medium body and an active carbonation provides a somewhat acidic feel.
A pretty good beer. Not surprisingly, it goes great with chocolate, as I discovered during my second bottle.
