Making my way through a bottle of TPS Quaff Bros Manhattan Project. Quite sweet to my tastes, but I do like it. I mainly bought it because the Manhattan is far and away my favorite cocktail. Can't say it really reminds me of that, but I am enjoying it.
I'm surprised to hear this. My local beer crew (myself included) has been quite impressed with this. It manages to touch on all of the aspects of a manhattan with a nice balance between the components. It's a bit boozy which I think is apt for a beer cocktail. They pull it off at least as well as a GOOD Short's beer pulls off PB&J sandwich, Bloody Mary, etc.; I really can't imagine someone creating a better approximation of this cocktail in beer form.
I'll set aside a bottle for the next bourbon tasting to see what others think.
