Chocolate Jitters is a combination of Rocky River’s Oompa Loompa Chocolate Stout and Merlin’s Black Magic Coffee Stout. Brewer Matt Cole suggests adding the melted chocolate in the boil, a vanilla bean in the secondary, and to use cold-brewed coffee, which is less acidic than traditionally brewed coffee.
