COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A partnership between Bodebrown and US brewery Stone Brewing, Cacau IPA is a beer awarded as the best of style in Brazil in 2013 & 2014. It combines masterfully characteristics of traditional english India Pale Ale with Brazilian cocoa touches in a "nibs" during boiling and maturation. With strong aromas, has an average bitterness and caramel notes with citrus hops in a drink of 6.1% of alcohol content. It was the first Brazilian IPA beer to rely on the addition of cocoa.

Satyroneto (282) - BRAZIL - MAY 8, 2016
Cor de ouro envelhecido com tons acobreados, turva com algum brilho; espuma levemente bege, de altas formação e persistência com muito bom lacing. Aroma cítrico de frutas amarelas e cacau em segundo plano. Sabor com início de base de caramelo evoluindo para um meio cítrico (vide aroma) com final seco e amargo leve para uma IPA; retrogosto variando a cada gole entre um cacau aveludado e uma calda de doce de laranja. Corpo leve, e carbonatação média/baixa. Boa drinkability. Apesar de muito equilibrada fácil de beber, nada surpreendente.

Oakes (14841) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 20, 2016
Hazy light tan. Aroma is older, stale hops and chewy malts. But the cacao really shows up on the palate. It’s balanced with some nice chocolate sweetness and rich, chewy earthy bitterness. Ends up being a pretty nice beer, despite the uninspiring aroma.

vidmidia (248) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - NOV 24, 2015
Vermelha, límpida. Espuma abundante de média duração. Aroma lupulado com notas herbáceas e de chocolate. Sabor amargo, levemente resinoso, com notas fortes de cacau e toques de grama verde. Retrogosto de chocolate amargo.

nazbion (234) - Tübingen, GERMANY - AUG 16, 2015
On tap at Delirium Cafe. Amber with persistent white creamy head. Fantastic sweet, chocolate, caramel aroma. Some citric hops too. Taste is sweet caramel, balanced by a light-medium bitterness. Medium body. Not the usual IPA, amazing brew.

JaKeAFC (847) - ITALY - JUL 20, 2015
Orange color, hazed, thick white head, nice lacing. Caramel malts with candy sugar on top with heavy bitter hops and a leftover of burnt cocoa. Average carbonation full heavy body creamy texture. Bitter finish. Interesting.

kraddel (5725) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - JUL 19, 2015
Pours dark blonde, with a good white head. Smell is that f white chocolate- buttery and all - plus some bitterness. taste is likewise. Storng cacao taste, in between milkchocolate and white chocolate ( white, building up to milk ) , over a medium-bitter backbone. Certainly interesting ! If this beer were regularly optainable for me, I don’t think I would drink it often though, and I can clearly see how people can strongly dislike this. But for now and than, this unique ( to me ) combo might just be the thing you’re after. And personally, I like it ! The only thing I kinda dislike is the weird sweetness.. Is it the cacao? Is it a special Brazilian ingredient ? Is it because of the combo ?

Bottle from tderoeck. Many thanks. Hazy dark amber/brown colour, white foam. Medium carbonation. Sweet nose of pineapple, citrus, milk chocolate, caramel, fudge. Very strange combination. Sweetwith bitter finish. Not really my cup of tea.
