This week’s discussion on Straight From the Source is all about chocolate stouts. How did they get their name? How are they made? Is there any actual chocolate used in the process? Tune in as Clay Gordon chats with beer expert and host of Fuhmentaboudit!Chris Cuzme about all things stout, and follow them as they taste a few different combinations of beer and chocolate. Later in the show, Clay checks in with Michael Cirino of A Razor, A Shiny Knife who explains his approach to chocolate as an ingredient to do fun/amazing/stupid/theatrical/tasty things with. This program was sponsored by Heritage Meat Shop

“Thanks to maillard reactions we can have the same flavors and compounds in beer as we do in food.” [06:00]
