Default Theobroma

Posted this on another home brew forum as well... sorry if anyone reads both forums.

Just sampled the limited quantity Dogfish Head "Theobroma"... very impressive! It's probably too early for anyone to have a clone recipe but I thought I would put the feeler out... anyone have a recipe for something similar?

According to the Dogfish Head documentation it's brewed with:

  • Honey
  • Ancho Chilies
  • Ground Annatto
  • Soconusco Cocoa Nibs
  • Cocoa Powder

That would be a rough one to try and figure out. I'd normally be game for a recipe challenge, but that one could come out very badly. I'd personally look up Brew_Pastor's chili ale recipe (can't recall the name atm) and then use that as a starting point. Is this a sweeter type ale? What about the hops?

I tried this at a Dogfish tasting after GABF, I gotta say, it was light colored, slight hint of chiles, but I didn't get any chocolate and didn't really like it.

Agree on the light color and subtle taste of the chilies. Disagree on the Cacoa - thought it came through pretty well.

I too had this at GABF and I thought it was very mild, if you didn't tell me there were chiles or cocoa in it, I would have never known.

I have a feeling this is a low gravity mead more or less with VERY light adjunct spicing.

I had some of this too in Madison last fall. I thought it was great but unfortunaty it disappeared from the shelves very fast. Does anyone have a clone recipe yet or know if Dogfish Head is planning on making another batch?

The next batch has been released as someone I know from PA bought a couple of bottles today.
