Chocolate Imperial Stout
Well, if you’ve ever wondered what bittersweet chocolate beer tastes like, this is it! This black beauty came out of our Toronto brewpub in January of 2010. It is made with Dutch cocoa powder, cocoa nibs from Soma Chocolate across the lane from us in the Distillery District as well as pure chocolate extract. The Nitrogen charging gives it a real milkshake texture. We first released it for Valentine’s Day, 2010 cuz nothin’ says “I love you Baby” like an 8.5% alcohol chocolate flavoured stout!
