Big in body and flavor with chocolate, coffee and caramel notes. A favorite among customers and staff alike. So rich and thick with a chocolaty palate, that you won't be able to drink this one slowly.

  • Description
  • Product Documentation
  • Q and A

This recipe has stood the test of time. First brewed over 13 years ago and has been a Great Fermentations standard ever since. With an original gravity of around 1.054, this beer is so flavorful that it drinks as a much bigger beer. A rich unsweetened to semi-sweet chocolate palate comes from a pound of chocolate malt and 4 oz. of debitterized black. The palate is rounded out with some 60L crystal and enough Cluster hops to bitter. We suggest Wyeast 1007 German Ale for a dry finish or 1728 Scottish Ale for a more malty finish. Want to change it up? Add cacao nibs or cold-pressed coffee in the secondary.

Brewed up a batch for the Falcons vs pats game. Was very well received by the party. Good chocolate notes and smooth. Nice creamy head. Used German lager yeast and lagered for 4weeks. Will try again with ale yeast just for something different.
Owner Response:Jim - Thanks for the review, and I'm glad the beer turned out great! I love the idea of trying out a German Lager yeast too; great idea! Cheers! Bryan & the GF Team
