Chocolate Stout Cheddar is a collaboration between Rogue Creamery's classic hand-milled cheddar and Rogue Ales' Chocolate Stout. The beer is poured over curd before, allowed to bond and later hand dipped and pressed into blocks for ageing. The result is a firm cheddar with a marbling of dark ale throughout. Flavours are savoury and tangy balanced by the sweetness and coffee notes of the stout. Aromas are buttery and creamy, highlighted by a hint of ale.
Not as sharp as other cheddars, Chocolate Stout Cheddar makes for a perfect grilled cheese sandwich, particularly if paired with a pint of Rogue Ales' Chocolate Stout. The cheese is made from pasteurized rBST free cow's milk and is vegetarian-friendly and gluten-free.
