Beer is a love language all on its own. This Valentine’s Day, show your love language by indulging in one of these chocolate-infused craft beers oozing with rich, sweet chocolate goodness. This Ultimate Round Up will help you find the ultimate chocolate beers. You can forgo the chocolates and roses this year. We won’t judge.

Chocolate Camaro | Half Acre Beer Co.

Enjoy By 2.14.17 | Stone Brewing Co.

Escondido, CA | ABV: 9.4%

Hey pussycats. Please note that some of the Stone #EnjoyBy 02.14.17 Chocolate & Coffee IPA is quite cloudy / yeasty. If you’re at all concerned about it, you shouldn’t be. It’s an #unfilteredIPA – just as intended and delicious! So enjoy the heck out of it. The yeast appearance can occasionally be pretty typical of an unfiltered beer that hasn’t aged long in the cold tank so consider it the freshest of unfiltered beers! And just in case some folks still want to complain about it being too funky looking, be aware that there have been plenty of people who have gotten in a royal bundle sometimes that it’s not cloudy enough. Maybe we should just let them shout at each other across a protest line…while the rest of everyone else kicks back, drinks it and says “Mmmm…tasty!” 📷 @mbeach717 #flirtatiouslyfresh #stonebrewing

Red Velvet | Ballast Point Brewing

San Diego, CA | ABV: 5.5%

Red Velvet is a new release from Ballast Point, a golden oatmeal stout brewed with beets and chocolate. The brewery describes it as “Our Red Velvet oatmeal stout is a mind-bending beer.
