Must be close to Valentines day because Spinnakers Chocoholic stout is back. This brew is touted as a milk stout, most guidelines suggest a milk/sweet stout tops out at 6%ABV. If memory serves me right, this is the first year brewed with Sirene chocolate. In the past TCHO cocoa nibs were used. If you actually finish reading my rant, most of this great beer will be sold out. Or perhaps that is my plan. Press release to follow:
CHOC-O-HOLIC There is more to the relationship between chocolate and beer than tastes and indulgences, both being prehistoric from an ancient past. It is impossible to know which came first but here we present these two fermented foods in a modern relationship, designed to last until the last drop.
Sirene Chocolate Milk Stout, brewed with our deep well aquifer mineral water, malted barley and wheat, Sirene chocolate husks, lactose, hops and yeast.
