Chocolate/Cocoa Beer
Chocolate beers use “dark” chocolate or cocoa in any of its forms other than or in addition to hops to create a distinct (ranging from subtle to intense) character. Underhopping allows chocolate to contribute to the flavor profile while not becoming excessively bitter. Beers made with white chocolate should not be entered into this category. The brewer should list the classic or experimental style of the base beer, to allow for accurate judging. Beer entries not accompanied by this information may be at a disadvantage during judging.
OG: 1.030-1.110
FG: 1.006-1.030
Alcohol by Volume: 2.5-12%
IBU: 15-40
Color SRM: 15-50
