OK so I'm hooked. Yes there is a case of Rogue Chocolate Stout in my basement...and I'll admit that there are cans of Youngs Double Chocolate Cream Stout chilling in my 'fridge right now. There's just something innately satisfying about a sweet chocolate or cocoa-based stout. Thankfully I'm not alone. In the same light as their Midas Touch meade-based beers, Dogfish Head has chased down the DNA of an ancient cocoa-based brew found on shards of pottery dated from 1100 B.C. in Honduras. The beer is called Theobroma and although I've heard rumors of sightings (tastings) in their Rehoboth brewpub, the beer is scheduled for release in Aug 2008. I can't wait!
