Choc Lobster was originally brewed to pair with a chocolate lobster bisque and white chocolate lobster salad slider. Sam happened to be at that dinner and got a real kick out of the beer, so we decided to brew a big batch for the pub so everyone else could try it. A while back, Dogfish Head brewed an oyster stout for a film festival. However, due to a terrible storm, the film festival was canceled. Sam and his team were left with a LOT of oyster stout to drink. To say they were tired of oyster stouts would have been an understatement. So this piqued their interest in other crustacean options! Sam was familiar with Five Island Lobster Company from his summers in Maine, and while on a hunt in Tanzania, Sam got the idea to use bold fermenting ingredients such as cocoa; the basil helps the bold taste from the cocoa and the delicious lobster blend together in euphoria.
