Cheboygan Brewing Co.'s Chocolate Covered Cherry Stout
By Lynda Wheatley | Feb. 9, 2019
Forrest Gump says life is like a box of chocolates, but if you ask us, it should be a lot more like Cheboygan Brewing Co.’s Chocolate Covered Cherry Stout (ABV 6.8%.) Rich, hearty as hell, sweet and bittersweet in meaningful proportions, complex enough to be interesting, mildly bubbly yet wholly robust — this smooth operator is everything you could want in a milk stout and perhaps more than you deserve. Our beer pundits detected notes of brownie batter, brown bread, and even raisins and fig, but the average among us delighted in the simple stuff: juicy red cherry, chocolate, and malt. On tap now at the brewery and absolutely worth checking with your local restaurants and retailers who carry the brewery’s beers. We found ours at Traverse City’s The Beverage Company, (231) 946-7596.
