The darkest of Pisgah brews, the beer formerly known as Vortex II took a significant transformation when Pisgah brewers added a heavy dose (25lbs in 5bbls) of raw cocoa nibs to the brite tanks, thus creating what will now only be known as "Chocolatized". Congratulations to the brewers, as this Russian Imperial Stout aged on cocoa nibs brought home a coveted Gold Medal at the 2014 Great American Beer Festival for the Chocolate Beer Category.

We have taken our classic Porter recipe, added some appropriate "umph" in the already diverse roasted grain bill, and then finished on raw Vanilla Beans from Madagascar. THEN... we run it on NITRO!! The result is a full-bodied brew of dark color, with subtle sweetness noticed on the first approach while the calming Vanilla flavors ease the palate before the roasted notes fill out the flavor profile. Smooth like a milkshake, just like a great nitro beer should be. Salud!
