Well, recently, when I made my New Year’s Seafood Gumbo, I tried a few new beers while I was cooking my roux.
My new favorite beer, hands down for the moment, is Young’s Double Chocolate Stout.
When I say it tastes like chocolate, I’m not kidding in the least. It tastes like a sweet chocolate bar, without being sweet, if that makes any sense at all. I believe it was 5.2% alcohol, and it is made with powdered dark chocolate.
It’s a nice dark beer, likened to Guinness in my opinion, and stood up well to the rich, spicy gumbo I served up with it.
If you’re looking for something new to try, but don’t want to waste your time, money or calories on something that won’t be good, try this beer. You’ll be so glad you did.
It’s somewhat of a novelty item, but I’d be satisfied drinking this whenever I felt like a cold, frothy beer!
