While we feel that chocolate should be celebrated every day of the year, today it is especially important because today is National Chocolate Day. From good health to increased libido, so many things have been attributed to this decadent sweet. To celebrate the world’s favorite candy, we found the best chocolaty beers for you to try on this marvelous holiday.
Sexual Chocolate by Foothills Brewing Company
Dedicated to the chocolate lover in all of us, this rich, cocoa-infused imperial stout is the only thing you’ll need in your trick-or-treat bag this Halloween. It smells of dark caramel malt, and the 10% ABV is not found in the taste at all. You can drink this sexual, balanced brew all day long.
Theobroma by Dogfish Head Brewery
The name literally translates to “food of the gods,” so we know this is a beer worthy of praise. This holy brew has the perfect balance of sweet and spicy flavors that come from the mix of Aztec cocoa powder, honey, and chilies.
Mocha Porter by Rogue
This popular winter seasonal is a delight to the taste buds, and it is both mellow and decadent at the same time. It unleashes aromas of chocolate and coffee and has flavors of malt and hops. In fact, the World Beer Awards recognized it as the World’s Best Flavored Porter in 2010 and 2011, so make sure this one’s high on your list.
Sex Panther Double Chocolate Porter by SanTan Brewing Company
In honor of everyone’s favorite women-repelling cologne, Arizona’s SanTan Brewing Company has brought us Sex Panther Double Chocolate Porter. As if the connection to Anchorman wasn’t enough, this chocolate porter is also made with truffles.
Organic Chocolate Stout by Samuel Smith Brewing Company
Many beer enthusiasts have rated this as the best option for a chocolate beer, and rightfully so. This beer actually smells of freshly baked brownies and tastes like liquid chocolate. It is quite a rich mouthful, but it is delicious and doesn’t overwhelm.
