DharMag January 2020 Chocolate porter by Fabbrica della Birra Perugia: the ultimate beer for chocolate lovers?

Fabbrica della Birra Perugia chocolate porter, the ultimate beer for chocolate The chocolate porter of the Fabbrica della Birra Perugia brewery is a dark beer, with intense tones, a warm, round flavor and an irresistible foam.

At the end of fermentation, cocoa is added to flavor the most, but it is not at all intrusive or redundant, on the contrary, it amplifies and adds a delicate, spicy touch, which goes with the suggestions of coffee already present.

If you want to combine a beer with chocolate or cocoa desserts, muffins, or a classic Tiramisu, you’ve found it. But it is also excellent with the most classic American barbecue recipes, starting with pulled pork, brisket and ribs with coffee rub.
