Beer and Chocolate pairings

Chocolate and beer have a lot in common: bitterness, roasting aroma, fruity notes, hints of spices, caramel taste...

 

We tasted the excellent products of the Unibroue brewery and here we offer you marriages of our chocolates with six of their delicious beers.

Tips for a tasting activity


  • Serve small amounts of beer to accompany the chocolates, about 2 to 3 ounces per type of beer, to keep you thirsty and hungry until the end.

  • Make spring water and pieces of bread (baguette bread cubes) available to participants to neutralize tastes between tastings.

  • Take a bite of chocolate and enjoy it peacefully. Then take a sip of beer to combine the aromas and flavors.

  • Taste in progressive order: start with the mildest beer and end with the most intense.
