The Chocolate Manifesto by Flying Monkeys Craft Brewers
First few sips of The Chocolate Manifesto are truly like sipping on an overly chocolatey chocolate milk. A few more sips and the familiar beer qualities come shining through. At 10% alcohol by volume a little booziness emerges over the top of roasted malts and dark chocolate. Creamy mouthfeel to say the least. The more I work my way through the bottle the more the chocolate flavor reminds me of the mocha flavor found in flavored coffee. 88 points for The Chocolate Manifesto.
This bomber-sized bottle of stout came as a bonus beer in a recent trade. My trade partner said that this was a hot beer in Michigan. I’m happy to have tried it.
