Double Chocolate Stout - Chocolate Stout Beer Kit
Double Chocolate Stout
Porter & Stout Beer Kit
Style: Chocolate Stout
Color: Ruby Black
Chocolate Stout is similar to classic Irish-style stout, except that the dark grains used in Chocolate Stout include chocolate malt in addition to the roasted barley that's used in Irish Stouts. As you would expect from a stout, this beer is very dark and full-bodied. Chocolate malted barley is named for the color of the grain - it's dark brown when it comes out of the kiln. The resulting flavor is something between chocolate and roasted coffee. Instead of using chocolate or cocoa powder, which just makes the beer an oily mess, we include a liquor-grade chocolate flavoring extract with this recipe. This is similar to the process used to make Young's Chocolate Stout.
