Tapping into the dynamic beer-pallete of South Africans, SAB has unveiled its Castle Chocolate Milk Stout, and yes, it’s made with real cocoa.
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.
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 are limited, so if you see some Chocolate Milk Stout on the shelves at the local liquor store, best grab it if interested.
