Introducing Cheeky Monkey’s latest addition to their lineup of beers that have been known to surprise and delight drinkers. While previous releases have included unique flavors such as cupcake-infused stouts and thick fruit-infused sours, this time, Cheeky Monkey has thrown a curveball with a classic Export Stout that is clean, sessionable, and unadulterated.
At only 5.6 percent ABV, this seasonal beer is perfect for winter, without being an over-the-top winter stout. What sets this stout apart is its simplicity and drinkability. The palate features chocolate notes, including both sweet dark chocolate and chalky cocoa nibs that linger after each sip. A mineral note and slight residual sweetness complement the malt-derived characters, while the hops add just the right amount of bitterness. The light to medium body makes it even more quaffable, and the finish is surprisingly short and sharp.
While Cheeky Monkey is known for their extravagant, adjunct-laced stouts, this beer proves that they can also excel in creating a classic beer with a distinct taste. Try it out and taste the difference.
