From Barrie Ontario’s Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery comes their “The Chocolate Manifesto Triple Chocolate Milk Stout” the newest specialty brew. This chocolate milk I mean beer pours a black opaque colour with a milk chocolate coloured head. The aroma consists of milk chocolate, cream, roasty malts and an overall sweetness. The flavour is of roasted malts, cream, milk chocolate, fudge, espresso, dark chocolate and some bitterness to finish. This is more chocolate milk than chocolate stout and I loved every drop of it! The alcohol content comes in at 10% but does not show up much in the flavour. Pick up a bottle as soon as you can if you can find it as it is amazing! Especially as this beer does not ship out West!
Commercial Description: Triple Chocolate Milk Stout is a luscious treat for beer geeks ready for a euphoric detour from the mundane. We brewed the manifesto to become the reference for people who think the sweet milk stout a beautiful thing. For those seeking decadence and transcendence. For all those odd ducks who like weird beers. We pilgrimaged to ChocoSol in Toronto revering the ancient beauty of their artisan chocolate. ChocoSol are kindred spirits – sweeter and more evolved than us, but kindred nonetheless. ChocoSol challenges normal, pulls it apart, and brews it into something new. Passion is such an important ingredient in craft beer, we should include it on the label. Don’t mindlessly praise craft beer. Challenge brewers to innovate.
