Finally getting to try the rare gem that is Choklat! Even with being a bit disappointed with the base stout, the hype has me excited for this on.
Dark as night pour, very deep and dark black. The head is nonexistent, but a swirl shows some alcohol and carbonation legs here.
Absolutely just straight chocolate on the nose. I’m thinking some kind of Belgian variety that gives it a bit of a crème and spice hint. This has some similar notes to the crème brulee. As it warms and sits this one is bringing out the hops that I somewhat dislike in the other black water series beers. This has me a touch apprehensive.
A huge chocolate flavor, but unlike the other black water series this has a nice bitter finish. It really brings out the roast and malt to complement the chocolate flavors. As for flavors, coco nibs, espresso, fudge, milk chocolate…wonderful.
Not a hint of alchol and the body seems to be just about right. A touch more silk would help things, but still solid.
I don’t get it. Why is this so much better in every possible way than the other beers in this series? The feel, the balance, the body, everything is just amazing. Easily one of the best chocolate beers I’ve had.
