Chocolate Truffle Stout brewed by Thomas Hooker Brewing


Chocolate Truffle Stout brewed by Thomas Hooker Brewing in Bloomfield, Connecticut

Chocolate Truffle Stout is made in collaboration with Connecticut's favorite chocolatier, Munson's Chocolate. Copious amounts of oat malt produce a silky, full bodied beer laced with hints of roast and chocolate derived from dark malts. Each sip ends with a mild chocolate bitterness from Munson's proprietary cocoa powder, added generously to the brew. To round out this beer, we add several pounds of cocoa nibs at the end of fermentation to provide a fresh chocolate aroma. IBU's: 20. ABV: 7.1%.

Beer Review from Beer Advocate
Poured from bottle to pint glass the beer arrives a rich deep brown with a nice 1.5 finger khaki colored head, nice retention and lacing. The nose is rich and powerful: milk chocolate,cocoa, dark chocolate, roasted malt, nice. More approachable than expected. The flavor is more of the same. Likely the richest beer I've ever had! The roast and chocolate blend terrifically with a gentle sweetness and mild bitterness. Creamy and smooth the beer finishes with a lingering milk chocolate flavor. Wee carbonated, very nice. Overall, this is a serious treat! Very enjoyable!

Thomas Hooker Brewing Company
Thomas Hooker Brewing Company, located in Bloomfield, is Connecticut's local brewery with a national reputation. One taste and you'll recognize why small batch local brewing with quality ingredients produces a superior beer.

Built on the premise that small manufactures creating quality products are still to backbone of this country, we are proud to be in our second decade of producing great quality craft beers in Hartford County. We offer eleven unique beers (7 ales and 4 lagers) that are highly respected and recognized for consistency and quality. Recently named as the 73rd best brewer in the world by RateBeer.com, and ranked number 15 in the top 50 American Micro Breweries by the Beer Advocate, Connecticut should be proud of their small brewer with a huge reputation.

Our mission is to be the first choice among Connecticut's beer drinkers, thanks to our award-winning taste, quality and freshness. At Thomas Hooker Brewing Company we make beer the way it's meant to be made: hand-crafted from the finest malts, hops and essential ingredients - and painstakingly true to style. It's the time honored, age-old way of creating beer.

We believe that local products create local pride, and locally produced beer tastes best when it's fresh from the source. The microbrewery concept isn't a fad. Beer that's brewed, delivered and served locally is as fresh as it can possibly be, and is increasingly the identifying signature of a location.
