Breckenridge Brewery and Cholaca are celebrating National Chocolate Day in a big way. Today they announced the release of Breckenridge Brewery’s second Nitro Series seasonal, Nitro Chocolate Orange Stout. Brewed with orange zest and locally sourced Cholaca, pure liquid cacao, and topped by the velvety texture of the nitrogen head, Nitro Chocolate Orange Stout is the perfect wintertime indulgence.
A twist on an American style stout, Breckenridge Brewery uses Cholaca, pure liquid cacao, and organic orange zest to offer a new way to experience traditional holiday flavors. Roasted malts complement the chocolate and orange flavors. Mandarina Bavaria hops, a recently developed hop variety from Germany, impart subtle tangerine aromas, enhancing the citrus notes of the beer.
“Our first seasonal nitro, Pumpkin Spice Latte Stout, was such a
success that we really had to challenge ourselves to follow it up with something just as distinctive,” said Todd Usry, President of Breckenridge Brewery. “We think we’ve achieved that with Chocolate Orange Stout. It’s creamy, decadent and memorable -- just what we were striving for.”
“We are thrilled to partner with Breckenridge Brewery and help them achieve this new kind of quality chocolate flavoring so deserving of this fabulous Nitro Stout!” said Cholaca CEO, Ira Leibtag.
Nitro Chocolate Orange Stout is the latest addition to Breckenridge’s nitrogen-charged can lineup joining Nitro Pumpkin Spice Latte Stout, Nitro Vanilla Porter and Nitro Lucky U IPA. With 6% ABV, Nitro Chocolate Orange Stout is available in packs of four and draft where Breckenridge beer is sold. Nitro Chocolate Orange Stout will be available from November through January, when their next Nitro Series seasonal is expected to be released.
