We’ve collaborated with our mates – the renowned Adelaide Hills chocolatiers at Red Cacao – to create a unique, delicious and super smooth new Limited Release beer. Mismatch Chocolate Stout is a rich and full-bodied beer that blends the intense flavours of Red Cacao’s single-origin chocolate with the smooth, velvety texture of a stout.
Red Cacao sources their cacao beans from a single farm in Venezuela, where the cacao trees grow in rich, fertile soil and are tended by skilled farmers who take great care in harvesting the beans. The beans are then carefully roasted and ground by Red Cacao’s chocolatiers, who use traditional techniques to extract the maximum flavours and aroma from the cacao. The resulting chocolate has a deep, complex flavour profile that includes notes of roasted nuts, caramel, and dark fruit.
We incorporated the cacao nibs into the brewing process by steeping them in the beer during fermentation. This process allowed the intense flavours of the cacao to really infuse into the beer. The final result is rich, smooth, and full-bodied, with a complex flavour profile that includes notes of dark chocolate, roasted nuts, and a hint of bitterness. Mismatch Chocolate Stout has a deep, dark colour that is reminiscent of the chocolate used to create it and a creamy, velvety texture that is perfect for sipping on a cool winter evening.
We love our home in the Adelaide Hills, and we love being able to collaborate with talented local producers like Red Cacao to create something special. In the Mismatch Chocolate Stout, we have created a beer that is not only delicious but also celebrates the rich history and traditions of both brewing and chocolate-making. This beer is a must-try for anybody that loves a stout, and anyone who appreciates the artistry and craft that goes into creating both exceptional beers and chocolates.
Mismatch Chocolate Stout is now available to purchase online and at select Mismatch stockists around Australia. You can also find it pouring on tap at Mismatch Brew House Adelaide and Lot 100 in the Adelaide Hills, and at select venues.
As an added bonus, we had our Red Cacao mates up at the brewery for canning – and a few lucky drinkers may even find a block of Red Cacaos delicious chocolate in their carton – the perfect pairing to this rich chocolate stout! 🤩🍫
