THIS BEER IS

The original BrewDog, Bracken decided to make a beer that best reflected himself; this is the beer equivalent of the big, cute chocolate monster. Soft, smooth, dark, chocolatey and a force to be reckoned with. This gentle giant will never bite, but you'll still want to be on your best behaviour!

BREWER'S TIP

Brewers Tip Icon

We recommend adding the chocolate malt at the start of the run off to ensure you extract the flavour and colour without imparting too much of the astringency of the malt into your wort. This will give the beer a really smooth mouthfeel, making this dangerously drinkable at 8% ABV.
