US: Miller Brewing launches chocolate beer
SABMiller has continued to develop its specialist beer portfolio with the launch of a chocolate beer. The beer is brewed with six different malts, including a dark chocolate malt.
Under the name 'Frederick Miller Classic Chocolate Lager', the beer has been developed after research by SABMiller's US subsidiary, Miller Brewing Company, and will launch in the US in time for the Christmas season.
Dr David Ryder, who is vice president of brewing, research and quality assurance for the Miller Brewing Company, said: "Given that chocolate can have literally hundreds of flavour nuances, to develop a beer which bursts with chocolate flavour is incredibly difficult. We believe this lager has the most complex chocolate taste currently on the market. Its intense flavour, without the heaviness of other dark beers, is also a distinctive feature which will appeal to both men and women alike."
