Flying Monkeys BNL Imperial Chocolate Stout Review
BNL stands for Barenaked Ladies for those who are a bit confused. Flying Monkeys and BNL did a bit of a collaboration brewing and is $13.95, limited edition bottle is the result.
The beer is pitch black, one of the darkest I have seen, and pours with a a medium thick, tan head. The chocolate notes emanating from the pour are simply amazing. Up close this feels like sticking your nose in a pile of the most amazing cocoa. The taste is just as amazing, which makes this the best chocolate stout I have ever had. Up front there is a velvety smooth milk chocolate taste, followed by a hint of roasted cocoa beans. The finish is extremely smooth with a long lasting amazingly chocolaty note. Though the beer is at 10% ABV it is extremely smooth and there are almost no traces of alcohol.
Best Imperial Chocolate Stout I have had! Buy it if you can find a bottle.
