Dogfish Head Theobroma

Dogfish-Head-TheobromaTheobroma is a celebration of chocolate, the food of the gods.

This Ancient Ale is based on chemical analysis of pottery fragments found in Honduras that revealed the earliest known alcoholic chocolate drink used by early civilizations to toast special occasions.

The discovery of this beverage pushed back the earliest use of cocoa for human consumption more than 500 years to 1,200 B.C. As per the analysis, Dogfish Head’s Theobroma (translated into “food of the gods”) is brewed with Aztec cocoa powder and cocoa nibs (from our friends at Askinosie Chocolate), honey, chilies and annatto (fragrant tree seeds).

From the Brewer – “It’s light in color, not what you expect from your typical chocolate beer (not that you’d be surprised that we’d do something unexpected with this beer!).

Great with toasted nuts, roasted chicken, milk chocolate, brined olives, dates, licorice.

Hop Bitterness (IBU’s): 8
Alcohol by volume: 9%
