Hop chocolate bar
« on: May 17, 2013, 07:43:54 PM »
I just ordered a couple of these bars. I'll post an update once I get to taste them. Lake Champlain Chocolates put out some top-notch chocolates, so I'm really excited to give this a try.

That sounds interesting.  My favorite chocolates are single malt truffles from Theo in Seattle.

So I just gave this a try. The ingredients list hop oil and malt syrup as ingredients, and the label specifically mentions Cascade as the hop variety. Tastes just like wort that was highly hopped with Cascade (albeit with considerably less bitterness). Pretty "meh" overall. For a non-brewer it may taste like a novel idea, but to me it just tastes like it needs to be fermented.
