Chocolate Extract 4 oz.


Product Number: 9147

Availability: In stock

These extracts should be added to your bottling bucket just prior to bottling. Traditionally, fruit flavors were added to wheat beers, witbiers, blonde ales, porter and stouts. Today, breweries are adding these flavors to just about any style of beer.

Since the extract is added at bottling time, it is very easy to flavor only part of the batch. For example, if you made a Midwest Porter, you could bottle half of the batch without the extract, then add half the bottle of extract to the bottling bucket, stir, and bottle the rest. Use up to 4 oz. per 5 gallon batch.

OK in a stout Review by Millburn

(Posted on 4/5/14)

Product Rating:

I've experimented with many of the flavored extracts. The Chocolate goes OK in a Stout, and doesn't have any artificial taste. I would use it again.

Works well in Porters Review by Huber

I made a Porter with Chocolate malt, and added 2 ounces of this extract and let it sit 5 months. It has a nice chocolatey taste, what with the malt and extract working together. I think that's they way to use it.

Use half a bottle in a Porter ... Review by Redmond

Product Rating:

... to enhance the chocolate taste. Unlike other extracts this one tasted alright. Maybe it's because the Porter is a thicker and darker beer, maybe it's that I used just half a bottle, or maybe its that I had chocolate malt in my brew - but in any case it had a nice chocolately taste.

Used with cocoa powder its ok Review by Nadim

Product Rating:

I used half a bottle, along with cocoa powder in a Porter and it tasted pretty good. I think all the flavors work better together if its not all coming form one source.
I'll use the remaining half of the bottle in a Stout and add some Chocolate malt to supplement it.

Use it along side cocoa Review by Chase

Product Rating:

By itself its not so good. When used alongside real cocoa they work together and make a good chocolate taste. But then why even use this, and instead I would just use cocoa powder.

Great Add to Oatmeal Stout Review by B

Product Rating:

Used this chocolate flavor on a oatmeal stout which has a coffee/dark/small hint of chocolate already---this really allowed the chocolate flavor to pop.

Works with no hassle Review by John

Product Rating:

I purchased this from Midwest along with just about every flavor they carry. I am experimenting with these as I first used Vintage Harvest Fruit Puree for fruit beer but that adds an extra big step and a much higher cost. I put the chocolate in a Cherry Vanilla Chocolate Stoudt and it was a hit. I would use it again.

Used in a Stout Review by Revis

I made a Chocolate Stout using this extract. I used 2 ounces for 5 gallons and the chocolate was subtle. For next time I will augment it with cocoa nibs to up the flavor.

Will Use real choco next time. Review by Rich S

(Posted on 1/2/13)

Product Rating:

I got this chocolate extract as part of a kit and was disappointed. Thought the chocolate was not really a clean chocolate flavor and was more like a tootsie roll.

I split the batch and only put the extract in half and the half that had it also had an "alcoholy" taste to it. The only difference was the extract addition after fermenting was complete. My wife who uses extracts a lot for cooking say she feels lots of extracts give off an alcohol taste.

I gave it a poor value score, because for the price, I'd hope for more true chocolate flavor. I'd opt to just buy real choco instead.

Not that strong Review by Patrick

(Posted on 11/18/12)

Product Rating:

This 4 oz. chocolate extract does add a chocolate taste. My beer acquired a dark chocolate aftertaste. But at this price, you might as well put the money towards some top-shelf baker's cocoa to include at the end of the boil and in the secondary fermenter.
