“Using premium cacao nibs and coffee from local businesses that share our passion for high quality innovation sets us apart from other products on the shelf,” said Matt Vivatson, co-owner of Eel River Brewing Co., in a statement.
In brewing Single Origin Mocha Stout, Eel River only used premium ingredients to create the depth and richness in flavor. The beer pours a nice velvety appearance that almost resembles that of a beer on nitro. The combination of the dark malts, cacao and coffee creates for a nice journey for your tastebuds. Single Origin Mocha Stout is a great stout for these cooler nights and is not too overbearing as it sits at 6.5% ABV.
“We couldn’t be more excited about this collaboration with Eel River Brewing Co.,” said Adam Dick, co-founder of Dick Taylor Craft Chocolate, in a statement. “We hope that our chocolate can provide that unique base note that sets this beer apart from the rest.”
Single Origin Mocha Stout is available in 4-pack, 16oz cans and on draft.
