Australian Brewery Launches 'Utterly Delicious' Chocolate Milkshake Beer

Australian Brewery Launches 'Utterly Delicious' Chocolate Milkshake Beer

Do you love chocolate milkshake? Do you love beer? Then you'll love chocolate milkshake beer!

Except it doesn't work like that, does it? I learned this the hard way with a bold, but ultimately disastrous, lasagne/trifle experiment. Several England managers were similarly disappointed when they tried to play Lampard and Gerrard together.

However, the Aussie brewers behind this chocolate milkshake beer claim it is 'utterly delicious'.

The Sparkke Change Brewery Company in Adelaide is behind the pioneering beverage, which apparently tastes just like a chocolate milkshake, while also packing 6 percent ABV.

I dunno about you, but I'm pretty sure this drink could ruin my life - in the best way possible.

The stout, named 'Better Lait Than Never', is the result of a bit of experimentation by brewer Carla Naismith.

Explaining what the stout's all about, the brewery said: "Sparkke's Chocolate Milkshake Stout sits at 6 percent ABV and 20 IBUs [International Bitterness Units], proof that full, rich flavour can come in a brew of modest proportions.

Warburtons Teams Up With Brewery To Create Crumpet Beer

"Full-bodied, the flavour has overtones of milk chocolate and a cream-like sweetness found from the residual sugars of the lactose additions.

"The lactose nimbly rounds out the black malt profile and the absence of a hop presence provides a smooth mouthfeel, with an easy sweetness as soothing and reminiscent of a chocolate milkshake, only boozy. To no surprise, the beer tastes just like a chocolate milkshake and it is utterly delicious.

"Resident brewer Carla Naismith wanted to experiment with higher mash temperatures and lactose additions. The result? A flavourful, nicely balanced beer with the sweet cream of lactose buffering the malt heavy notes and earthy contributions of the chocolate malts and oats.

Australian Brewery Offering Year's Supply Of Free Beer For Best And Worst Isolation Mullet

"Add hints of roasted coffee and toasted marshmallow and you truly get a perfect transitional seasonal stout as we move into the warmer months."

Sadly though, in the UK, we are not moving into the warmer months - and we won't get to try this intriguing tipple. The brew is is only available on tap at Sparkke's Adelaide brewery at Whitmore Square, which is pretty devastating really.

Oh, to be in Adelaide, ushering in the summer with a sup on a big boozy chocolate milkshake beer. Alas, winter is creeping up on us in the UK.

I suppose the best we can do is order a big fat Guinness and Nesquik delivery and see how that pans out.
