When Rogues Ales Chocolate Stout married Rogue Creamery's classic hand milled cheddar a lovely cheese was the result. The classic cheddar is formed, and then broken down and showered in Rogue's Chocolate Stout and allowed to meld before it is pressed into blocks for the aging process. You can see the lacing of the dark stout in the cheese noted by the faint brown veining. This Oregon gourmet cheddar was awarded multiple times at the American Cheese Society and the World Cheese Awards.
Savory and tangy cheddar notes are tempered by the sweeter chocolate and coffee essence of the stout. The combinations of oats, pure chocolate, and the chocolate malts strike a perfect balance in concert with the hops which create a perfect bittersweet finale in taste. The cheese is made from pasteurized rBST free sustainable cow's milk and is vegetarian friendly and gluten free.
Chocolate Stout Cheddar makes for a perfect grilled cheese sandwich, melted a top your coffee rubbed steak of choice. The ideal libations to toast this cheese are Porters, stouts, or strong red wines.
