Spinnakers Chocoholic Milk Stout ReviewSpinnaker’s Gastro Brewpub – Chocoholic Milk Chocolate Stout Review

Adorned with the new classier style of Spinnaker’s label the Chocoholic is a milk chocolate stout with a very low IBU of 10. The beer pours from the bottle close to black in colour topped with two fingers of very finely packed head. Through this fluffy top comes notes of chocolate. Much like the name insinuates there is also a creaminess and a sweetness to the aroma coming from the rather unique, milk chocolate name. This beer is actually a chocolate, milk stout if you want to get particular about it. The beer’s texture is rather thick and creamy as you would expect with a milk stout. The chocolate flavours are strong but the lactose and sweetness meld it all together in a beer that really does resemble milk chocolate in flavour. The sweetness is quite apparent and there is no hop-bitterness to cut that out. Any bitterness present comes from the cacao content and so the beer does come across rather sweet. That said, this is a milk chocolate stout – it should be a desert if you ask me. Pick up a bottle and give it a try – not only is it unique it is also rather tasty!

Alcohol – 7.75%
IBU – 10
Size –650ml bottle
Price – $6.25 (Craft Retailer)

    Oh nice. I have not tried this one yet. The one from Flying Monkeys out of Ontario was great though.
