Dogfish Head Theobroma

dogfish_head_theobroma

One of Dogfish Head’s Ancient Ales line of beers, Theobroma is said to be the earliest known alcoholic beverage containing chocolate.   But make no mistake, this is no chocolate stout.   The nose resembles what you might expect from a chocolate stout, thick and sweet, but the flavor is something else entirely.   This is true spice beer, and predominate flavor is bitter cocoa, followed by spicy chili oils.   This is not an every day beer, but it’s definitely been a treat that I wouldn’t dare miss.

I give it a 4.7 out of 5.
