Since the Bears didn’t even come close to the playoffs this year, I was a bit bored while watching the playoffs at the bar, and used the opportunity to try several new dark winter brews on tap. They were all delicious. Dark beers go well with cold weather and football, which are two of the very few things I like about winter.
The first was Fort Collins Brewery Chocolate Stout. It was pretty tasty, as chocolate stouts go. It did not, however, taste at all like chocolate. It was smooth with a hint of sweet up front, and a sour aftertaste. It didn’t have much bitter flavor either, so I can’t even say it tasted like cocoa… but despite that, it was a good pick.
I give it a 7.5 / 10.
