The Rocky Ridge brewers have made a strong start in bolstering their winter lineup for 2020 and are showing no signs of slowing with their latest release, the decadent Choc-Coconut Porter.
A revised recipe from last year's beer of the same name, this reiteration sees almost 60kg of toasted coconut added to a bold, porter base. If that wasn’t enough, a further 50kg of cacao husks, from local chocolatier Gabriel’s, also features to yield a beer bursting with robust chocolate and sweet coconut flavours.
The toasting of said coconut is the key in this almost-dessert stout, with generous notes of nuttiness easily bursting through a rich and dusty chocolate base beer, masterfully built up with specialty malts. A slightly oily finish and restrained hop character ensure that delicious, moreish bitter chocolate and coconut flavour persists with each and every mouthful.
Rocky Ridge’s Choc-Coconut Porter is an elegant, liquid rendition of the humble coconut rough, and it’s currently available in limited quantities.
