Sweet Baby Jesus! – DuClaw Brewing Company (Baltimore, MD)

A chocolate peanut butter porter. It’s like spreading peanut butter on a slice of bread, folding it in half, and dunking it in a cold glass of chocolate milk!

Grand Cacao – Tröegs Independent Brewing (Hershey, PA)

This chocolate stout has complex flavors of roasted malts and a vanilla forward flavor with a sweet milk sugar finish. Well balanced between sweet and bitter with the cacao complementing the vanilla and milk sugar perfectly.
