BrewDog USA - Choco Libre
The first brewed in the USA BrewDog Stout has touched down in the UK!
This nitro brew showcases the flavours of a Mexican spiced hot chocolate, infused with an imperial stout. It'll wrestle your taste buds to the canvas, and throw you around the ring of sensory delights. Dark chocolate mixes with coffee and cinnamon flavours, all layered over smooth roastiness, finished with a cayenne pepper drop kick to the throat.
El Santo of imperial stouts!
The Brew Sheet
Alcohol by Volume (a measure of booziness created by the yeast)
International Bitterness Unit (the bitterness of a beer from the hops)
Beer styles are the categorisation of beer into easily distinguishable types. When doing this we look at history, colour, carbonation, bitterness, ingredients, mouthfeel… the list goes on
We'd typically use a lightly kilned Base Malt in a beer recipe, then add Speciality malts (sometimes darker, more complex, different flavours) in small quantities to change the overall taste and colour of the beer.
Hops are used in loads of ways, and they can give different characteristics to beer such as Aroma and Bitterness– this is why they rock!

Please note, the date on the base of the can is the canned on date, not the best before date - the USA way!
