A Portuguese brewery has created an innovative website made of chocolate to launch its chocolate-flavored stout.
Sagres, a Portuguese brewery founded in 1934 now controlled by Heineken, recruited Portugal’s leading chocolatier Victor Nunes to fashion a template made to look like a website using chocolate as his canvas.
The result is a cocoa-flavored website that bears the markings of organic hand carving and chocolate craftsmanship. Rolling over links to Twitter and Facebook, for instance, will break the chocolate buttons in bite-size pieces.
The chocolate stout, Sagres Preta Chocolate, is 4.1 percent alcohol.
Nunes began sculpting the template at the Obidos International Chocolate Festival in March and his team finished the interface at his chocolate factory this month.
Once all the components like buttons and frames were assembled, the agency snapped high resolution photos of the completed interface, which now appears on their website.

Marrying the flavors of chocolate with the rich, heady taste of stout has become a common flavor for breweries around the world.
American craft brewer Samuel Adams also has a Chocolate Bock beer, that uses cocoa nibs from Ecuador. Australian brewery Red Oak also has a Belgium Chocolate Stout that’s infused with Belgian chocolate.

YAHOO NEWS: Mommy Dionisia shows P1M Herms bag!
Dionisia Pacquiao’s grand and lavish 62nd birthday in General Santos City in May was a much talked about event in the city.
Aside from her dance performances and 5 wardrobe changes, the public eagerly waited for the mom of Fighter of the Decade Manny Pacquiao to show off her son’s expensive birthday gift.
The Filipino boxing icon and his wife, Jinkee, gave her an orange Hermès luxury designer bag that reportedly costs a whopping P1 million.
Mommy Dionisia, as she is popularly called, initially opted to keep the bag hidden from public.
But in an exclusive interview with ABS-CBN’s “TV Patrol” main anchor Korina Sanchez, the Pacmom finally showed to the public the luxury designer bag.
“Simple lang tingnan, walang zipper. Pero ang pangalan niya, ang mga materyal niya ang mahal,” she said. “Amoy goma, no? (Laughs).”
She also showed off an orange scarf given by former President Joseph Estrada.
When asked how she learned about the designer bag, Mommy Dionisia said: “Nagpunta ako sa bahay ng anak ko. Sabi ko, ‘Anak, ano ba itong klase na bag? Parang kung tingnan natin hindi maganda, pero ang materyal ang mahal.”
“Sabi ko, ‘Bigyan mo ako ng isa. Puwede hingin ko ang isa?’ Sabi niya, ‘Huwag na, ma, bilhan kita sa birthday mo,’” she said.
According to Mommy Dionisia, she first used the Hermès bag when she went to church. More than the material things, she said she is thankful that God has continuously given her family abundant blessings.
Me: Oh so what??! What’s the big deal? I know that it’s really costly for such a simple-looking bag, but mind me, there’s nothing to get issue with that. Our country has so many problems to think about! More important than any other (queer)things!
