What happens when you ask the Mill Street Brewery production brewing team to design a beer? You get the combination of innovative thinking and wisdom that led to this indulgent treat! This decadent stout combines the rich, smooth character of chocolate with sweet and slightly tart cherry undertones. Enjoy. You deserve it.
Chocolate Cherry Stout – need I say more? This rich, malty stout is brewed with cacao nibs, and fermented on dark sweet cherries, from the Pacific Northwest. The brewhouse addition of cacao nibs adds a chocolatey mouthfeel, while fermenting the beer on cherries reduces most of the fruit sweetness, leaving behind a sweet cherry aroma and tart finish. The layers of chocolate and cherry create a smooth, moreish beer that drinks like desert in a can.
Tasting Notes: Sweet cherry fruit on the nose with chocolate and roasted barley notes. A rich malt body with evolving cherry flavours that start sweet, and dry to a tart finish with dark chocolate linger on the palate.
