beerNew Belgium Lips of Faith Imperial Chocolate Coffee Stout 22oz
(Fort Collins, Colorado)

Serving up cold and jet black, this imperial stout should be taken seriously for about one minute as the dark foam builds. Then, enjoy its velvety chocolate-covered smoothness and delicious aroma of sustainably-grown, locally roasted coffee.

Rich, with lots of coffee and cocoa/baker’s chocolate aromatics. Lots of roasted and rich dark malts. Smooth lip smacking and mouth coating. Warm, boozy and slight lingering astringency from the espresso. Sweetness upfront, balanced with a welcome mild bitterness in the middle and finish. Moonless midnight. Opaque black, with tan foam and firm lacing.  10% ABV.

We have a keg that we will be tapping, sign up for Keg Tap Texts to be notified.

beerSamuel Smith Organic Chocolate 18.7oz
(Tadcaster, England)

Full body; roasted barley flavor; fruity notes from the Samuel Smith yeast strain support lush chocolate aroma, taste & finish.

This is one delicious beer.  If you remember the Meantime Chocolate Porter we had on tap a few years back, this is as close as it gets.  The English have a special take on chocolate that should be tried!

beerOdell Lugene Chocolate Milk Stout 4pk 12oz
(Fort Collins, Colorado)

Chocolate Milk? Stout! Milk Stout with Chocolate. Yummm! Odell hits the target with this one, pleasant bakers chocolate, that gets better and better as it warms up.  If you are in the Fine Beer Club you got a single of this in your Bin this month.  It comes in Four Packs, come and get them!

Here’s what Odell has to say:

If you’ve ever been to our brewery, you’ve likely seen the old, beat-up truck that hauls away our spent grain. That truck belongs to Lugene who’s been feeding his dairy cows the hearty malt for over a decade. Named in his honor, Lugene Chocolate Milk Stout is brewed with milk sugar and milk chocolate. The rich and creamy brew reminds us of a cold glass of chocolate milk and our hometown “Aggie” roots.
