http://www.dogfish.com/brews-spirits/the-brews/brewpub-exclusives/choc-lobster.htm Choc Lobster is a brew first brewed in 2012 that evolved from our Super Small Batch program that we began at the pub to make weird one-off batches for our beer dinners. Choc Lobster was originally brewed to pair with a chocolate lobster bisque and white chocolate lobster salad slider. Sam happened to be at that dinner and got a real kick out of the beer, so we decided to brew a big batch for the pub so everyone else could try it. This scaled-up batch has a robust porter base and was brewed with live lobsters, which were added directly to the boil to cook off for the kitchen. Along with the lobsters, just over 6 pounds of dark cocoa powder were added to the whirlpool, along with a basil tea that was added to compliment both the chocolate and lobster. The result is a rich dark ale with notes of bittersweet chocolate and roast, with a slight herbal nuance and a subdued taste of the ocean in the finish. Just like the song goes -- "it wasn’t a rock, it was a Choc Lobster!" Choc Lobster is now brewed every summer with lobsters shipped from our friends at Five Islands Lobster Co. in Georgetown, Maine and will return 7/25/14 and be available until it's gone again.

    A dark black colored beer with a big sudsy textured light tan head rising above. There’s good hang time on the head. A thin ringlet is left. There’s chocolate in the nose. And more chocolated giving way to stronger caramel. Let this warm and the brine comes in a bit. Interesting tasting full bodied beer.
