3 Ravens Choc Mint Milkshake IPA
Brewery: 3 Ravens Brewery
Style: IPA - India Pale Ale
Format: 375ml Can
For our fourth "Shake" release (brewed for Winter 2019) we decided to answer the cries of the fans out there and revisit our 2018 GABS beer - Moussey Juicy - albeit with a few tweaks and a new hop bill. Choc Mint Shake features a creamy base of oats, wheat and Munich malt, with dark crystal malts and lightly roasted malts intertwined with dutch cocoa. The signature lactose-and-vanilla combo are supported by natural chocolate and mint flavours to give the impression of one of the all time classic milkshake flavours. Featuring Sabro hops - with unique creamy and oak-like vanillin characteristics as well as tropical fruit, with supporting roles from NEIPA staple Citra, as well as German Perle hops which lend herbal and mint-like freshness.
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Minty but thin, no chocolate or milkshake characteristics
I found it to be quite minty but lacked the thickness and chocolate associated with an advertised milkshake. I also found it carried too much acid. Drinking it while eating some milk chocolate opened up the flavour to help improve the flavour profile.
When I had a first sip it really tasted like chocolate that I enjoyed it! I’m going to buy it again.
