Dugges & Stillwater Cocoa Cacao, 12 oz. $8.99

Before this one, we’d done six. All sours. So, when discussing our seventh collaboration, we knew we wanted to do something different.
Choice fell on a big, thick, creamy stout. So far so good, but how do we approach a stout?
What, other then sourness, is it that makes a Dugges/Stillwatercollaboration? Clarity and directness was what we found.
Very dark brown. Cocoa, chocolate milk, vanilla, a little bit of wood and hazelnut aroma, sherry, mildly bitter, cocoa, lots of vanilla, a little bit of alcohol.
