MadTree Rubus Cacao is available in cans for just the second time ever. The beer first appeared on draft in early 2014.
MadTree Rubus Cacao is sweet chocolate stout, featuring cacao nibs from Cincinnati’s bean-to-bar chocolatier, Maverick Chocolate. The beer finishes with a touch of tart raspberry.
“It was important to us to work with a local partner to find the cacao nibs and that led us to Paul and Marlene at Maverick Chocolate,” said Jeff Hunt, MadTree Brewing co-founder. “Maverick was on-board immediately and very excited to help us find the right chocolate to achieve the flavor profile we wanted for the large-scale release of Rubus Cacao.”
MadTree Rubus Cacao will be available in 12 ounce cans starting at 12 noon on January 7th. Attendees can try Maverick Chocolate offerings.
What to expect: Some beers with raspberry can be overwhelming. I.E. Raspberry beer with a touch of stout. Madtree’s rendition is dessert. Hints of raspberry, balanced well with chocolate. The world needs a little more romance. This beer brings it. 12 ounces doesn’t last long.
