Review: Detroit Brewing Co. Sander's Chocolate Stout

By Kati Spayde, resident Cicerone.

Forget hot chocolate, this 12-ounce treat has a rich fudge flavor reminiscent of its namesake, Sander's Hot Fudge Ice Cream topping. It pours a beautiful dark brown with amber highlights and a fluffy head that diminishes quickly. The chocolate--thin in aroma but strong in the flavor--is nicely balanced by strong but not overwhelming roasted characteristics.

For being such a rich treat, this beer is very drinkable, never cloying or overpowering. A very good beer, and one that I highly recommend.

Saunder's Chocolate Stout (7.8% ABV) is available at Siciliano's for $1.59/bottle. Ask about it and other employee recommendations the next time you're in the store!
