Chocolate beer is a type of craft beer that is brewed with chocolate malt or chocolate flavouring. Chocolate malt is made by roasting malt in a kiln until it becomes dark brown or black. Chocolate beer often has a deep brown colour and a rich, chocolate flavour.
Chocolate beers are typically sweeter and less bitter than other types of craft beer. Chocolate beer can be enjoyed on its own or paired with dessert. When pairing chocolate beer with dessert, it is best to choose a dessert that is not too sweet so that the chocolate flavour of the beer can shine through. Chocolate beer is a unique and delicious way to enjoy craft beer.
