Beer of the Week: Molly's Chocolate Stout
In my mind Molly’s Chocolate Stout is one of those. Firstly, it is not sweet, the chocolate in the name comes from the type of malt that is used in its production, unsurprisingly titled ‘chocolate malt’. Molly’s has a bitter dry finish reminiscent of Lindt's 70% chocolate, but in a much more luxurious, stylish and silky way. The clever lads and lassies at Hilden Brewery add cocoa powder at the end of the brewing process which gently imparts its nuances to this creamy tipple. Molly’s on draught has a lovely puff of chocolate on the nose and a creamy body ably assisted by nitrogen, which, in this case ameliorates the stout’s appeal.
Would Molly be proud of this beer? Who knows! Molly is a dog, and does not drink. For shame…
