- Rogue Chocolate Stout ClonePosted by homebrewersassociation.org on November 25, 2015 at 4:48 pm
When searching for the perfect holiday ale to brew, this Rogue Chocolate Stout clone begs for your attention. Found in July/August 2009 Zymurgy, this beer has won a laundry list of awards since 2000. Many chocolate stouts seem to have acidic coffee flavors and end up falling short of real chocolate flavor. However, Rogue's Chocolate Stout is smooth, sweet and velvety, and tastes like a chocolate malted milkshake with slight hoppiness and bittersweet chocolate notes. The allure of this beer comes down to the chocolate flavors, which makes it enjoyable for both the chocolate and beer lover. The sweet, creamy head gives way to a rich chocolate truffle finish. This beer pairs perfectly with desserts as it's balanced by plenty of roasty flavor and bitterness. We suggest pairing with a chocolate cheesecake, chocolate cream pie or other rich chocolate dessert. Read More The post Rogue Chocolate Stout Clone appeared first on American Homebrewers Association.

- Brü’s Views | On Craft Brewery BuyoutsPosted by Marshall Schott on November 26, 2015 at 12:57 pm
Due to the exBEERimental nature of Brülosophy, the overt sharing of each author’s opinion is rarely warranted, as central to our mission is avoiding the appearance we’re change people’s minds. We’d rather use this as a platform to encourage brewers to question what they’ve accepted as fact, try things out on their own, and ultimately think for themselves, […]
