“Dark Side of the Chocolate” Stout Recipe


This full bodied stout is dark and rich with a hint of sweetness. Being a beer for everyone, the creamy chocolate flavor will be the talk of the town. You can add unsweetened cocoa powder (the kind for baking) to the boil or cocoa nibs to the secondary. We recommend using both for a Double Chocolate Stout with intense flavor and aroma! Choosing any of these can give you a different yet tasty brew. With it’s low alcohol level, this beer can be a go-to beer for any occasion!
