Already my second all-grain beer, this was an opportunity for me to try out something new by mixing in some ingredients which I had never thought would ever go into making a beer. After trying out a brown ale in a local craft beer pub, I had my heart set on this style for my next batch but wondered how I could tweak it in some way that would make it more personal. That’s how I decided to add a little extra something to the mix and went with the cocoa nibs just to see what the result would be like. I was expecting for the chocolate flavours in the nibs to pair nicely with the malty, roasted base of the beer and I was not wrong. With some time in the bottle for the taste to balance out, this ended up a very drinkable and tasty beer, even though maybe a bit roaster than I was expecting of it.
This is a homebrewed beer that is not available for sale or distribution of any kind. It was brewed at home in small quantities to be shared only with family and friends simply out of passion for the craft and as a tribute to the music that inspired it.
