This beer is based on chemical analysis of pottery fragments found in Honduras which revealed the earliest known alcoholic chocolate drink used by early civilization to toast special occasions. the discovery of this beverage pushed back the earliest use of cocoa for human consumption more than 500 years to 1200 BC. As per the analysis, Dogfish headís Theobroma (food of the gods) is brewed with Aztec cocoa powder and cocoa nibs, honey, chilies, and annatto (fragrant tree seeds). Theobroma is 9% ABV and will be available in Champagne bottles by late spring 2008.

GABF 2008. Amber pour with small fizzy head. Nose of sweet malts, honey, and some chocolate. Low carbonation and very light palate. Flavor is sweet and almost cloying....no chili flavor, but the chocolate is there. Interesting, but not great.

Smells good, tastes good, with a nice palate and solid all around. Would probably be an ideal beverage for Halloween, since itís kind of a surprise beverage, being from so long ago, and full of flavors, with more subtle hints of chocolate and chile.

Hmmm...strange beer, unsurprisingly. Honey and chicken mole, caramel and bread dough. Hmmm. When will I have the sense to add DFH to the "donít bother" list?

Hazy golden with thin white head. Sugar sweet aromaÖ strawberry? Cacao/dark chocolate, something lingers. Is it the bitterness of the chocolate or chilies? An interesting brew and one that if I didnít have an inkling of what it was would certainly have been completely unexpected. On tap and Andyís DFH Promo night.

Pous a lightly cloudy gold color, with a medium off white head. Smells of honey, caramel malt, some sweet fruits, and mild spices. I didnt care for the flavor much at all. Way too pounding sweet, no blance or assistance from much else at all. Just funked out honey and candy sugar the whole time. i admit i couldnt get through the whole beer. Havent been a big fan of DFHís new experiments recently.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a small off-white head. Aroma of honey, cocoa/chocolate, chili pepper and spices. Flavor is moderately sweet with light malts, honey sweetness, chili pepper, cocoa, light caramel and a touch of spiciness with a sticky texture and a medium body.

Thanks to tytoanderso for this brew. Pours slightly burnt orange with a small head that fades fast. Aroma is largely of honey, caramel, white chocolate, some distant toast, a light amount of chili peppers on the occasional whiff, and traces of the cocoa even less often. Taste is dominated by the honey with other notes of toast, grapes, white chocolate, with the occasional trace of chili and cocoa. The exotic flavors are remarkably subtle. The chili finally appears a little more assertively in the finish with a sort of honey meets sourdough bread and crust aftertaste. Honey becoming bitter and spicy. Palate is a little odd. Well carbonated, but itís oily and a little sticky. Fairly thick. This is not as interesting as the ingredients make it out, but itís still nice, like a carbonated mead with a light spice finish. Iíd rather have Jiahu though.
