Cacao Brown Ale
Inspired by the song from The Doors, "Wishful Sinful" is a chocolaty American brown ale, whose roasted maltiness blends smoothly with flavours of cocoa, and the earthy notes and smooth bitterness of its hops.View on Untappd

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.
Can you buy this beer?
All of my beers are brewed in small quantities simply out of passion for the craft and as a tribute to the music that inspired them. I only share them with family and friends, and they are never for sale anywhere. If you would like to show your support though, maybe consider purchasing some merchandise from the shop.
Check out some of the other beers I brewed that might be similar to this one in one way or another, or alternatively just explore the full range regardless of their style.
