In this beer blog, we are going to get into the Fort Collins Brewery and the beer is called Double Chocolate Stout. Here is the history or information of this brewery from their website (www.fortcollinsbrewery.com):
The Fort Collins Brewery is a microbrewery located in Fort Collins, Colorado. We have been open for 7 years and provide 7 full-time brews and a whole slew of limited release offerings.
There is not too much information about this brewery asides their website. It looks like a newer brewery from the information that I did find on the internet. Let us get into the beer.
This stout has a dark black color with a semi tan color head. The smell is a chocolate to coffee to the beer. The taste of a full body is a chocolate and roasted coffee with a dry chocolate aftertaste. It is drinkable beer but the beer cannot have more than three in one sitting.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
The most decadent creation ever to be crafted in FCB’s brewhouse. A bold chocolate nose introduces deep roasty flavors rich with coffee undertones. Impeccably balanced and completely indulgent.

In the end, this was a pretty enjoyable beer. It is a beer you can relax and sip it on a spring, summer, fall, or winter night with a nice cigar. This beer is not over the top and in your face but it will get you if you are not paying attention. This beer is pretty smooth of chocolate but you will notice some coffee in the taste and smell. This beer is not my favorite chocolate stout but I enjoy this beer. For all the chocolate stouts, this beer is up on the list. I recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
