10. Chocolate Beer

Chocolate Beers are light amber to black depending on the underlying style. Clear or hazy appearance is acceptable. Chocolate Beers are any beers incorporating dark chocolate or cocoa in any form. Characters derived from chocolate or cocoa should be apparent in harmony with the overall flavor profile of the beer. Fruity esters are typical of underlying beer style. Hop aroma is not present to very low. Hop flavor may be lower than is designated for underlying style allowing chocolate to contribute to the flavor profile without becoming excessively bitter. Hop bitterness is very low to medium-low. Medium-low to medium-high malt sweetness should be balanced with cocoa flavors and aromas. Body is variable with underlying style. Beers made with white chocolate do not typify this style; however, beers which exhibit attributes typical of white chocolate could be categorized as Chocolate Beer.
To allow for accurate judging the brewer must provide additional information about the entry including the beer style of underlying base beer, the form of chocolate used ("cacao nibs" for example), processes used, and any other ingredients if used. When the base beer does not conform to any existing style in this guideline, brewer may indicate "out of existing style". Beer entries not accompanied by this information will be at a disadvantage during judging.
