Brewed with a hefty malt bill including chocolate malt and roasted barley, this lush Chocolate Stout also features oats to naturally bolster its silky texture. The addition of lactose and dark chocolate sweeten the pot even more, yielding a smooth, velvety mouthfeel. To balance the sweetness, we used a variety of American hops to introduce a tinge of citrus and pine in the aroma as well as subtle spicy, earthy bitterness. Finally, we conditioned the finished beer on cacao nibs and vanilla for a week, giving this stout a luxurious body and rich, decadent finish. 5.8% ABV.
