Chocolate and beer lovers are in for a treat with the new limited-edition Castle Milk Stout Chocolate, made with real cocoa. With this rich and heady creation, SAB has innovated a new taste experience for the Castle Milk Stout range.
"Castle Milk Stout Chocolate is made with real cocoa, which is added in the brewhouse to ensure full release and development of the chocolate flavour," said SAB Consumer Science and Sensory Manager, Frieda Dehrmann.
Using a selection of speciality malts to create a malty chocolate character, this richness is complemented by the creamy smooth taste of Castle Milk Stout.
"Brewed with an alcohol content of 4.5%, Castle Milk Stout Chocolate is designed to be sipped and enjoyed by adult chocolate and beer lovers alike," said Castle Milk Stout general manager, Julian Remba.
It should be poured as a normal Milk Stout is poured and will form a creamy, foam head. "The flavour is reminiscent of coffee laced with chocolate liqueur. It is full-bodied and filling with bittersweet hints around the edges," Dehrmann said.
A Milk Stout, despite its name, is not is not made with milk but is brewed with lactose sugar for body and residual sweetness.
Castle Milk Stout Chocolate can be enjoyed at any time on its own, when you're looking to try something different or even when you get a chocolate craving.
"It is the perfect accompaniment with winter desserts, such as sticky toffee pudding, rice pudding, bread and butter pudding, chocolate pudding or Tiramisu," said Remba. "Pair it with a fillet, sirloin or game meat and it is also great with rich oxtail stew," he added.
Stocks of the extremely-limited Castle Milk Stout Chocolate will be available around the country in leading liquor retailers– but beer lovers are warned to move fast. "If you see the product and want to taste it, buy it immediately because you probably won't get a second chance."
