Atwater Decadent Dark Chocolate Ale
5.5% ABV, 11 IBU
Brewery Description: Holding true to the Northern English tradition, the Decadent Dark Chocolate Ale has at its foundation a nutty profile with a round mouthfeel. Added is a Chocolate Extract consisting of three blended chocolates of varied depth. The result is a rich, but not overly sweet experience for both the beer and the chocolate enthusiast.
Tasting Notes: Strong aroma of dark chocolate and cocoa. Pours a very dark brown with a healthy two finger tan head that persists. Intense concert of bittersweet, dark, and milk chocolate supported by biscuity toasted malt and a touch of coffee. Slightly sweet, but not at all cloying; solid carbonation and mouthfeel. A bit on the thin side, but it’s all about the chocolate, and it delivers that and more. Chocolate lovers rejoice, this is your beer! As Atwater posts on their web site, “Get your Valentine a case of chocolates!”
Food Pairings: Barbecued chicken, bacon cheeseburger, steak, venison, mild cheddar cheese, pumpkin pie, ice cream
Valentine’s Day suggestion: Enjoy for dessert with pecan pie topped with whipped cream.
Availability:Available year round in Michigan stores and in other states where Atwater is distributed.
