Starting a new tab, Detroit Brewing is the featured brewery with their Sanders Chocolate Stout on this beer blog. Detroit Brewing Company opened their doors in 2003. It is seconds away from the two ball parks in downtown Detroit. They brew several different beer styles. Let us get into the beer.
It has a jet black color without a head on this Chocolate Stout. The smell is a sweet chocolate alcohol notes. The taste is a sweet chocolate alcohol notes with a dry coco finish. It is pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
In the fall of 2009, Detroit Brewing Company began tinkering with their Pub Classic Smooth Cream Stout. A chance meeting, over a few beers, with the folks from chance meeting, over a few beers, with the folks from Sanders brought the final sweet ingredient. Our brewer found the best way to combine Stout and Sanders chocolate to create the dark, satisfying aroma and flavor of a fine Stout Ale with the restrained richness and elegance of the hand selected cocoa used by Sanders Fine Chocolatiers in Detroit since 1875.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
In closing, I saw Sanders on this brew. I was thinking about the chocolate company. I was right when I was reading the label. I had to pick up at least one bottle. I have been wanting to try some their beers from this brewery. I drive pass their brewpub a few times a week. I will have to stop in for lunch or dinner here soon. This beer has a nice balance and it is not over the top on the alcohol and the chocolate notes. It is a pretty nice smooth chocolate notes. I will be stopping by their brewery and looking for more of this brew. This is one of my favorite beer styles. I recommend this brewery and brew. Go get some! Drink it! Love it! Metal it! \m/
