Beer Review Flying Monkeys - The Chocolate Manifesto Triple Chocolate Milk Stout. Wow you can really smell the chocolate as soon as the top was popped. Reminded me of the local chocolate factory (yes we had a chocolate factory here). Very dark pour with a moca head. Man I can still really smell it as I’m typing this and my glass is more then arm’s length away. Tadtes just like it smells. Nice dark thick and reminiscent of good Green & Black dark chocolate. There’s a smokinees in there as well. This is good. Damn good. I think I will be going back to ghe LCBO tomorrow to pick up any bottles they have left.

A personal favourite; and one of the very few beers I can share with my wife. The chocolate notes are forward, very forward. Also a hint of banana and vanilla. It’s not an everyday beer. But when you’re looking at a special occasion, especially in the winter, this can be a real go-to.

Bottle thanks to miguel for sharing. Dark brown pour with a small creamy head. Aromas are marshmallows, cocoa, and lactose. Smells a lot like Count Chocula cereal. Tastes really sweet. Big lactose and chocolate, some creamy marshmallow. A touch thin. Fairly simple but tastes pretty good. Drinks like it’s 5% instead of 10%.

Wow! An awesome stout! Was going to say it shouldn’t be classified as an imperial stout, then noticed the ABV. Did NOT taste that big at all. Aroma was perfect milky and chocolaty. Smelled exactly like that drink Yoo Hoo. One of the best smelling beers I’ve had in recent memory. Pour was a nice deep dark brown/near black with a light tan film for a head. Taste was big and chewy. Heavy on the milk chocolate with vanilla and and milk lending a nice sweet flavor but nowhere near cloying. I honestly thought the beer was around 6-7%. So delicious. Medium carbonation.

750ml bottle. Poured a black color with a tan head. Very chocolaty. Yes this one was all about the chocolate ... knowing that going in, and it won’t disappoint. Want more than just chocolate, then skip it! I enjoyed it.

Puisque cette ’’bière’’ n’a rien d’une bière, je vais la noter pour ce qu’elle est objectivement et non pas pour ce qu’elle prétend être (càd une bière). Dégustée entre une dizaines de convives pendant le dessert lors d’un repas à la cabane à sucre. Cette bière sent le chocolat à des kilomètres dès la bouteille débouchée. Au début, on croit sentir du café-Bailey’s et des noisettes. Non pas un bon chocolat noir amer de dégustation, mais un chocolat au lait bien moyen. Du Nutella en fait. En bouche, l’effervescence et l’alcool allègent le tout et tant mieux, sinon mes 9 convives et moi-même n’aurions pas su terminer la bouteille! C’est encore très chocolaté et toujours de ce même chocolat de Dollorama. En bref, je n’ai pas aimé cette bière mais il faut dire que je ne suis pas un amateur de sucre à la base. Peut-être suis-je mauvais juge d’une telle bière?

Bouteille âgée d’environ six mois. Le chocolat frappe tout de suite en nez, avec des noisettes ; l’oeil est également assez chocolaté merci, avec un liquide épais, brun foncé et sirupeux. Bouche intense, notes de Quik, les saveurs sont complexes et très denses, mais les malts ne font que servir de soutien aux chocolats. On aurait aussi préféré une présence plus prononcée des houblons. L’alcool est bien caché. Savoureuse, brutale, mais elle fatigue un peu à la longue.

Brownie nose. Dark red brown appearance. Dark chocolate brown batter flavor. Very good. But very glad it’s a small pour

Pours clear (flashlight confirmed) ruby brown with two fingers of dense tan head, excellent retention and lacing. (4/5) Nose is chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate. (8/10) Taste is moderately strong sweet, mild bitter. (8/10) Medium to full body, moderate to low carbonation, slightly oily and bittersweet creamy finish. (4/5) What an extremely silly beer. Except, where it isn’t. Which is just about everywhere. Subtle? No. Bombastic? Yes. Good? Oh my goodness gracious yes. Think a slightly runny Hershey syrup milkshake, that makes the room get a little wobbly after a bit. (The ABV is seriously well-hidden, which for a double-digit product, is no mean feat. It’s not un-boozy - but it’s nowhere near as boozy as it should be.) Yes, it’s over the top and sweet. Yes, it’s one-dimensional. But, that dimension is chocolate. Mmmm... the Chocolate Dimension… And, it’s a milk stout (in addition to “chocolate" and “imperial” - how many adjectives can you add to a given style, anyway?), so there’s a lactose creaminess that plays well with the chocolate. I know some folks don’t like this. Those folks are wrong. (16/20)

Deep black pour with a thick white head. The aroma is great. Loads of Hershey like syrup that brings back memories of the BNL beer. Syrupy and sweet which actually helps enhance the fudginess of this beer. Bitterness is just right to balance and it’s a pretty pleasant brew. Glad I’ve only got 4 oz to get through though.
