Chocolate Madness: Beer + Chocolate Pairings

Angel’s Breath Belgian Ale (ABV: 12.0%) + NYSM Be Crunchy (or) Harbor Sweets’ Sweet Sloops

Hints of banana and clove in the nose and tastes of dried fruit matched with almond and coconut of Be Crunchy (or) white chocolate and almond buttercrunch of Sweet Sloops. Both perfect matches for this fruity beer.

Angel’s Breath Quadrupel Belgian Ale is so good that taste-testers asked where Donovan’s Trappist Monastery is located!

Wayne’s Wee Heavy (ABV: 11.0%, Scottish ale) + NYSM Be Rich

The rich chocolate caramel combination (with a hint of Himalayan Sea Salt) matches the malt profile of Wayne’s Wee Heavy with notes of toffee, raisin, and chocolate, and a hint of prune and dried apricot in the finish.

Donovan created this beer as a Christmas present for his father, Wayne, who really loves a good Scottish ale. Donovan went all out, using not just traditional ingredients but also the traditional technique. This beer is best enjoyed at cellar temperatures in a snifter.
