Chocolate and Beer Pairings - Combination #5

Posted on August 7, 2008 10:58 AM by Admin
We’ve come to the final chocolate and beer pairing in our series. Keeping in mind that this will be the most intense pairing in terms of flavor and body of the beer, don’t be afraid. You’ve come through the four previous pairings and you’ve reached the pinnacle. You just need to trust one more time. Here it is:

Pairing #5
Wolaver’s Organic Oatmeal Stout (5.9% ABV) and Dark Chocolate Raspberry Truffle (54% cocoa content)

The Oatmeal Stout is extremely full bodied and very dark. It is a little imposing at first glance but once you taste it, you’ll be met with these wonderful roasted notes reminiscent of chocolate and coffee – very filling and extremely satisfying. It’s in perfect balance with the strong fruity profile of the Dark Raspberry Truffle with it’s rich dark ganache and fresh berry flavors. Combine the comfort of oatmeal and the brightness of raspberry and you have a win-win combination.

So, there you have our final installment. All were very well received at the Vermont Brewers Festival and will definitely make more appearances at other events. Hey, armed with this info, they can certainly make an appearance at your events. While unsure at first, your guests will love you for it and you’ll look like a hero! And if you know of any cool chocolate and beer pairings, please send them along. Slainte!
