Meantime Chocolate Porter Reviewed

I always thought chocolate beer would taste a lot like bad chocolate. I imagined it would be like those chocolate-scented candles that smell sickly sweet and disgusting. I steadfastly refused to try it, even when given a free bottle by ...

Rubis Chocolate Wine Review

This is my second chocolate wine, this time from Rubis. You may remember I described the first chocolate wine as a sweet red wine with added chocolate flavour. My over-riding memory was that powdery chocolate sensation you can get in ...
