Today on the tenth episode of Season 3 on the Bois & Bar Talk podcast, the Drink Of The Week is Chocolate Truffle Stout by Hamden, CTs own Thomas Hooker Brewing Co.
Beer Advocate describes this beer as a "sweet stout that is made in collaboration with Connecticut's favorite chocolatier, Munson's Chocolate(Avon, CT). Copious amounts of oat malt produce a silky, full bodied beer laced with hints of roast and chocolate derived from dark malts. Each sip ends with a mild chocolate bitterness from Munson's proprietary cocoa powder, added generously to the brew. To round out this beer, we add several pounds of cocoa nibs at the end of fermentation to provide a fresh chocolate aroma.
On the 10th episode of Season 3 we celebrated our 50th total episode two years into the process. We get into the holiday spirit while drinking a Chocolate Truffle Stout thinking it was a festive choice. We touched on some of the best and worst Christmas presents we would receive during our childhood while also referencing reddit for some other experiences.
It wouldn't be right if we didn't get side tracked and take a X rated turn during this special holiday edition episode touching on subjects not meant for adolescent ears! We go into adult gifts exchanged during our recent Secret Santa. Then we go into the value of socks as a present on Christmas.
