For chocolate lovers, indulging in a luxurious piece of chocolate is one of the real pleasures in life. When you find a flavor you’ve been craving, how often do you take the time to truly savor each and every bite? Using this guide, you'll experience chocolate in a way like never before.
Why do beer and chocolate go so well together? One reason is that they share two fundamental flavors -- bitter and sweet.
