Celebrate National Chocolate Cake Day at Peaks and Pints

You’ve done a great job of sticking to that New Year’s resolution. So, it’s time to reward yourself by celebrating National Chocolate Cake Day, Jan. 27, with a sip of rich and moist cocoa goodness.

The following chocolate ales are behind glass at Peaks and Pints, with the exception of Old Schoolhouse’s Melipona Stout, which is on draft. The Melipona is the most chocolate beer we have every tasted. Finished with whole Mexican vanilla pods, Ceylon cinnamon and Blue Star Coffee Roasters cold brew, this stout is rich and creamy with all the chocolate, plus faint vanilla and a finish that hints of spicy cinnamon. 8%

ICICLE BREWING DARK PERSUASION: This stout tastes exactly like German chocolate cake, with strong chocolate and coconut notes, a touch of vanilla and a smooth finish. 6.5%

BLACK RAVEN FEATHER WEATHER: Stout brewed with cocoa nibs and cold pressed coffee for dark chocolate and coffee flavors. 6%

YOUNG’S DOUBLE CHOCOLATE STOUT: Brewed with real dark chocolate and chocolate essence for creamy chocolaty sweetness that coats the tongue like liquid silk. 5.2%

DUGGES/STILLWATER COCOA CACAO: Imperial chocolate stout brewed with cacao, coconut and vanilla FOR a quick hit of coconut but descends rapidly into the territory of a boozy chocolate liquor. 11.5%

BOULEVARD CHOCOLATE ALE: Valrhona chocolate from Dominican cacao nibs weaves between layers of honey, brown sugar, caramel and nutty malt, rounding into a luscious, lingering finish. 9.1%

SAMUEL SMITH’S ORGANIC CHOCOLATE STOUT: Velvety stout with creamy chocolate milk, chocolate syrup and cocoa powder dancing on the tongue with caramel and vanilla try to cut in. 5%

ROGUE DOUBLE CHOCOLATE STOUT: This 2010 World Beer Championships gold medal winning imperial stout smells like the inside of pain au chocolat thanks to ample bittersweet Dutch chocolate. 8.8%
