National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day

Snuck this one in in the knick of time. Recipe from Ready For Dessert from David Lebovitz, which Elise always keeps some in the freezer for just such an occasion and only bakes a handful at a time so they’re gone before they go stale. I’m allergic to chocolate, but these are 100% worth it.

Samuel Smith’s Organic Chocolate Stout

Samuel Smith's Organic Chocolate Stout

Served at room temperature in an Ommegang glass. Take the thick mouthfeel of Choklat and cut it down by one third, add the creaminess of a milk stout, toss in a few extra tablespoons of sugar per bottle and you’re about on track for what this beer is like. It’s lower ABV too, which means it’s a lot more drinkable than Choklat, not that that was ever an issue, but man is it sweet sweet SWEET! Definitely an after dinner/dessert/chick beer to say the least. Should be labeled a chocolate milk flavored malt beverage, honestly. I probably wouldn’t pick this one again (I didn’t, actually. Stole this one from Elise, haha) but it’s worth the try. Once.
