Category - Beer, stout, 4.5% abv

Location - South Africa, off-trade, "selected liquor retailers"

SABMiller's South African unit has launched a "limited-edition" chocolate infused version of its Castle Milk Stout brand. 

The 4.5% abv product is made with "real cocoa", according to South African Breweries, and uses a selection of "speciality malts to create a malty chocolate character". Limited stocks are being  made available in "selected  liquor retailers". 

"The flavour is reminiscent of coffee laced with chocolate liqueur. It is full-bodied and filling with bittersweet hints around the edges," said SAB's consumer science and sensory manager Frieda Dehrmann.
