Roots Chocolate Habanero Stout

Today Roots Organic Brewing Company rolls out the second in a series of five ales of winter.  This Chocolate Habanero Stout is a little different than last years in that it is noticeably more spicy. The dark beer is “an Irish style Stout brewed with chocolate malt, chocolate wheat & five pounds of coco nibs in the mash, then boiled for two hours during which we slowly inoculated six pounds of organic free trade semi sweet chocolate syrup made by Alma Chocolates” says Roots’ Craig Nicholls. “After fermentation we dry-hopped the Stout with 100 chopped Habaneros.”
The 6.1% ABV brew is relatively hoppy (48 IBU) and carries a prominent spicy tingle as it heads down the gullet. Yum.
