Crystal Springs Woody’s Salted Chocolate Stout

6-pack: $9.49

If you’re up for a treat that’s a little bit salty and a little bit sweet, Woody’s Salted Chocolate Stout from Crystal Springs is back for the winter season. It’s a unique ale that pours a deep, chocolatey dark brown without much foam. On the nose you can get some roasty notes along with hot chocolate, but the real treat is when it hits your palette with a silky body like a semisweet chocolate bar melting in your mouth. The salt is a nice little touch right up front that isn’t overwhelming and doesn’t overstay its welcome, but serves as a great balance to the other flavors in the glass and sets this brew apart from the countless other chocolate and coffee-forward stouts on the market. For a little zip of holiday cheer, look no further than right here.

Okay, I’ll cut out the rhymes now. I promise.
