When you’re pining for desert and can’t decide between a good drink or some rich decadent chocolate, don’t! This list of beer and wine is the best of both worlds. Good drink with the chocolate mixed right in.
Available exclusively in February this is a Valentine’s gift for any beer lover. Our friends at Foothills Brewing made a brew that goes all out. The aroma hits with espresso, toffee, and dark fruits while the taste is rooted in rich dark chocolate. This is one drink that takes everything its aiming for and goes all the way.
Named after a farmer whose worked with Odell Brewing for years, this stout doesn’t bother with fanciful and complicated extract infusions. It’s made with straight milk sugar and chocolate milk, making a creamy, delicious drink you almost want to dunk a cookie in. Available January through March, this is a drink not to pass up.
This award winning chocolate stout is a blend of multiple hops and malts, all delivering a luxurious taste that never becomes too sweet. The dark chocolate and chocolate essence create a blend that sets this beer in a category all its own, well worth a drink even when one isn’t in the mood for desert.
Cocoa and beer is all well and good, but there’s nothing like the classic of good wine with decadent chocolate. Trentadue crafted this dessert wine in the style of port, stopping fermentation at a point in order to preserve the sugar content. After that came wonderful chocolate extract, leaving us with luxurious chocolate wine.
At the Chocolate Shop they have one goal, to make the combination of dark chocolate and wine come in a single glass. This is a blend of several reds contains a touch of oak and fruit to mix perfectly with the rich dark chocolate.
