The Nook had their release event for Terrapin Beer Co.’s “Dos Cocoas” Chocolate Porter.
It was great! It had a very balanced flavor. Everyone was impressed.
Here is how Terrapin describes it:
“The “Dos Cocoas” is a traditional Porter with a chocolaty experimental twist. “Spike” incorporated two types of chocolate at two different stages of production to achieve the balanced chocolate flavors in the “Dos Cocoas”. The first addition was 60 pounds of cocoa powder added in the whirlpool. Next, the porter was aged for one month on a 60 pound bed of cocoa nibs to really bring the dark chocolate flavors home. The result is a fine chocolate aroma, a unique bitterness and a tantalizingly balanced chocolate flavor from both the cocoa powder and the nibs.”
This beer sounds awesome! Where can I get some?!? 😉
I hate to say this, but the “Dos Cocoas” Chocolate Porter was a limited run by the Terrapin Beer Company out of Athens, Georgia.
Terrapin has these side projects, which are basically a single batch and never made again. They are available only in draft form and with very limited distribution.
This can be a bummer as it was in this case. (BTW: Your family web site is great.)
