Love is in the air (apparently), so we’ve decided to put together something a little more interesting than just chocolates to give to your Valentine: Chocolate beer!… or chocolatey beer at least!
Maisel & Friends Marc’s Chocolate Bock – Brauerei Gebr. Maisel Bayreuth ABV: 7.5%
Appearance: Deep black, with a slight brownish tan. Thick beige head that stays with you and leaves a lot of lacing.
Aroma: Warming, smooth chocolate, with hints of nut and coffee beans in the aroma and a slight fruity underlay.
Flavour: Light, with quite a mellow hint of chocolate powder, a cracking a mix of dark bitter chocolate and spice in the finish.
Breakfast Stout – Founders Brewing -8.3% abv
Appearance: Black, as if you are staring into the deep dark abyss, a beige head, slightly carbonated.
Aroma: Rich chocolate, with a boozy underlay and hint of oatmeal.
Flavour: Chocolate with hints of cinnamon and spice, finished off with a fresh hit of bitter roasted coffee beans in the finish.
With this one you will definitely wake up and smell the coffee!
Black Chocolate Stout – Brooklyn Brewery 10% abv
Appearance: Jet black, with a thick beige head.
Aroma: Dark chocolate, with a nice fruity/sherry-like essence.
Flavour: Rich chocolate, with a warming, boozy finish!
Like liquid chocolate with a kick!
So when you’re about to buy the over half some chocolates for Valentines, think again… Do it Yeti-style!
