BARRIE, ON – Following preview tastes at several recent beer festivals, Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery has announced a retail release for its latest one-off beer.
The Chocolate Manifesto Triple Chocolate Milk Stout has the following promotional description:
Are three kinds of chocolate overkill in this sweet stout? Heck no. Not with 10% abv cupping all that rich cacao in it’s beautiful warmth. The magic number is 3. Lactose sweetness gives The Manifesto the heavenly body of a Milk Stout and the indulgence we crave in chocolate. The Chocolate Manifesto creates one of those rare “exbeeriences” of decadence and transcendence.
As with previous Flying Monkeys one-offs, The Chocolate Manifesto is being released in a limited run of 750 ml bottles packaged in gift boxes. It’s available now at the Flying Monkeys retail store in Barrie, and will be available soon at select LCBO outlets in Ontario.
- Greg C. is drinking a NULA Salt by Burdock at King & DufferinMildly tart, a bit overshadowed by the dry hop but not overwhelmingly. Salt is subtle but adds a nice minerality to the finish.
- Greg C. is drinking an Insetto by Stillwater Artisanal at King & DufferinGorgeous colour. And gorgeous flavour as well. Subtle plum integrates well with the elegant sour base beer. Beautifully balanced.
- Greg C. is drinking a Hawaii Five Eh! by Brickworks Ciderhouse at King & DufferinNot my usual sort of thing, but I quite liked this. Apple flavour has a nice tart-sweet balance, pineapple is very natural & summery.
- Greg C. is drinking an Apricot + Citra Dry-Hopped Sour by Rouge River Brewing CompanySplit at tasting. Seems muddled at first, but opens up really nicely, with lovely balance of apricot, sweet orange & sour lemon.
- Greg C. is drinking a Barrel of Cherries by Spindrift Brewing CompanyShared at tasting. Quite a hit of sour cherry up front. Red wine and chocolate. Bit of oak. One complaint: it’s kinda thin. But tastes nice.
