Antique shops and Beer of the Day: Theobroma

Me and Liz made our way to the antique shop in Montpelier today. A few months ago I made a post mentioning some steins they had and that I would post pictures soon, well, better late than never.

This stein is decorated with an inscription that read “Endet einst mein Lebenslauf”. According to one of Liz’s friends who speaks German, the person who wrote this is pretty much saying this is the best beer he has ever drank.

This is basically just a picture of a German fella having a good ol time.

This seems to depict a group of folks sitting by a table while one of their mates strums away on some sort of stringed instrument.

“Beer is healthy”

Theobroma

Dogfish Head Brewery

Milton, DE

Chile Beer

9%

This brew came from Hunger Mountain Co-op here in Montpelier. It was an impulse buy. I had heard that it tasted like spicy chocolate so I decided to try it.

Appearance – Two finger white foamy head, amber/ burnt orange color.

Aroma – malt, chocolate, caramel, honey

Taste – Cocoa, sweet, smokey. A little confusinf to explain. It is not a kind of sweet that makes you think “Ah, this is a sweet beer.” it makes you think ” Ah, this is a savory beer with hints of chocolate.” The chillies in this brew add a spice in the back of your throat. Very nice taste.

Mouthfeel – Medium bodied. Sort of bitter, nice stinging sensation not from the alcohol.

Drinkability – Great for certain occasions, not for everyday use.

    Love those steins…were they quite expensive? Steins were very popular collectibles several decades ago…a lot of pewter ones…probably American…I do not know..
