Boston Beer added: “The malty sweetness and rich flavors of craft beer enhance, and are enriched by, the flavors of rich premium chocolate. The carbonation of the beer also cleanses the palate from the heavy finish of the chocolate; after a sip, the palate is ready for another taste.”

In a statement, Jennifer Glanville, brewery manager at the Samuel Adams Boston Brewery, added: ‘‘We’re looking forward to hearing drinkers’ responses to the Samuel Adams Beer Lover’s Chocolate Box. So many people think of wine as the quintessential chocolate pairing, but we think this pairing will certainly change some minds.’’

The chocolate box is available nationwide for $16.95, Boston Beer said.
