Beer 40 of winter – doppelgänger

2015/01/img_0551.jpg
Brewer: Susquehanna Craft: Toboggan ABV: 8.7%
Where have I seen you before? You seem familiar. Just kidding. I haven’t had anything like this. Putting chocolate into a lager sounds like it could go very wrong.
But this craft goes very well. It’s malty and hearty, with a lager smoothness, and a hint of chocolate at the start and in the finish.
Lots of German malts give this craft a solid character that you’d expect a lager to have. The subtle wisps of cocoa add just enough sweetness to make you take notice. And I like the hops they used, as they add a simple bitter element into the malty, chocolatey mix. This one’s a keeper. Cheers.
