Beer tastes good. Chocolate tastes good. Does it work well together, though? We believe so, but the best way to find out for yourself is to taste, experiment, and discover!

You are already aware of the sensory experience that can be had when beer is combined with chocolate or candies. Due to their rich, complicated flavors—such as the roasted grains in the beer and the bittersweet cocoa notes in the chocolate—beer and chocolate go together incredibly well.

Due to the obvious coupling that exists between beer and chocolate, a lot of larger brands and breweries have begun blending the two, particularly stouts and porters, to create what can only be called adult chocolate milk in beer form.

It seems like a union made in heaven. For this reason, we've compiled a list of some of the tastiest pairings between beer and chocolate.

1. Lindeman Frambois

ABV- 2.5%    

Due to its contrasting flavors, Lindemans Brewery's Framboise lambic beer with macerated raspberries is perfect to sip while eating dark chocolate. Since 1822, Belgium-based Lindemans has been producing lambics. 

Framboise is described as having a distinct raspberry scent with a hint of sweetness, and it is quite sour and fizzy. Lambics are usually made by combining one, two, and three-year-old lambics into a cuvée; however, Framboise is usually produced when the lambic is only a year old.

Yuengling Hershey's Chocolate Porter one of the oldest breweries has partnered with Hershey, the most recognizable chocolate brand in the country.
