Thomas Hooker Chocolate Truffle Stout

August 22nd, 2013 by in Other Beer Reviews

Went to one of our favorite restaurants for their week long closing party.  So so sad.  They were trying to get rid of everything in sight and this was one of the only bottles left in their inventory.  And at half price?  Sign me up!

The description from their site sounds pretty fab…

“Our sweet stout is made in collaboration with Connecticut’s favorite chocolatier, Munson’s Chocolate.  Copious amounts of oat malt produce a silky, full bodied beer laced with hints of roast and chocolate derived from dark malts.  Each sip ends with a mild chocolate bitterness from Munson’s proprietary cocoa powder, added generously to the brew.  To round out this beer, we add several pounds of cocoa nibs at the end of fermentation to provide a fresh chocolate aroma.”

Beer and chocolate people…how can you go wrong????

I actually really enjoyed this!  It had a strong chocolate taste, almost like iced coffee. Smooth though, and very drinkable.  I was definitely a bit sad when they told me I had bought the last one and I couldn’t have another one.
