What Not to Get Your Sweetheart

Two great tastes that taste great together, right? Chocolate and wine? Eh...We think it's overrated. But if you're going to do it, make sure you get a decent bottle of wine and good chocolate, not this abomination.
ChocoVine is a fine French Cabernet subtly combined with a rich dark chocolate from Holland, paired together to create a decadent, silky smooth drink. It can be served on the rocks or as the main ingredient to an array of sinful cocktails....The right chocolate paired with the perfect wine can create near-orgasmic taste experience. But the wrong wine opposite a too-sweet chocolate creates nothing but horror.
Ah, yes, the horror. ChocoVine is so good you want to make sure you ice it down or blend it with other flavors.

This is already discounted on some grocery shelves, so we're sure that Salemites have seen and perhaps even tasted the horror.

Much more promising is the new Widmer W'11 release, the KGB Russian Imperial Stout. There's some bittersweet chocolate for you!

Brown's may have it on tap this weekend, even.

And a tip of the pint, and moment of silence, for Jeremy Judd, who while working in the Maletis warehouse was crushed by a collapsing stack of beer kegs earlier this week.
