Stout day is in full gear now! Our third beer was the first of two chocolate stouts, which in and of itself, sounds fantastic!
This guy was dark! You can really smell the smokiness from the glass even before it gets to your nose. It taste started off smokey and creamy, and then something magical happened. Right at the end, a few seconds after you swallow, there is the residual flavour of dark chocolate! Amazing. It was so strange. You couldn’t taste it at first, only on the booty.
It turns out, after researching, that Detroit Brewing partnered with Sanders Candy, also from Detroit, to make this specialty beer.
At that point, we started experimenting with it. Try this: eat a strawberry then take a pull. Taste like delicious chocolate covered strawberries… at a fraction of the price!
We were really sad when this one was gone, but its “Made in Detroit” which isn’t far from here, so there’s hope we can find it the next time we hop the border. I just hope they filter the water from the river before they brew…….ick!
