4.05/5  rDev -4.7%

bottle poured in a 16oz glass

Appearance: Pours syrupy; looks dark black with a thick brownish head. I cannot see through the glass.

Smell: an explosion of Chocolate blended with dark roasted malt. It is very sweet to the nose.

Taste: sugary chocolate, sweet dark roasted malt, with a hint of alcohol. Tastes reminds me of an alcohol chocolate milk type beer.

Mouthfeel: syrupy, thick bodied with little carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall, This is a great RIS. Probably one of my favorite stouts right behind Stone's RIS. The name of this stout truly describes the taste. It is a sweet chocolate explosion in my palate and it is very well balanced with the alcohol and the malt flavors.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into an over sized wine glass.

A: Pours a dark brown, pushing black, color letting no color through. It has a thin, mocha colored head that dissipates quickly. It looks a lot thinner than I was anticipating.

S: The aroma is an orgiastic feast for the senses. Strong, sweet milk chocolate is the backbone. Some roasted malts and dark, bitter chocolate finish it off.

T: The taste isn't as remarkable as the aroma, but is still quite admirable. Roasted malts and dark bitter chocolate are stronger here than the aroma. Milk chocolate makes a slight appearance towards the finish.

M: Definitely thinner and more watery than it should be. It is kind of flat and finishes on the bitter side. It does hide the alcohol deceivingly well.

O: The appearance and feel were a bit of a let down, but the aroma and taste certainly made up for it. Despite some flawed aspects, I will definitely enjoy picking this up again some time.

Thanks Mid!

Notes from 08/10/12
*22oz bottle to snifter glass

A: Pours the darkest shade of brown in color. Doesn’t look crazy thick but virtually opaque with a thin fizzy root-beer head. Low retention and some oily streaks line the glass at each sip.

S: Smell is a delectable assortment of mixed chocolates combined with the deepest, darkest, roast grains. A dash of vanilla crème and light alcohol notes round out the nose. Pretty awesomely rich aroma. Like wafting in some chocolate fondue.

T: Tastes like a chocolate fudge brownie. Amazing chocolate notes with a real pure cacao character. I get some lesser notes of coconut, licorice, and a bit of tootsie roll. Dark roast grains lend to a hint of coffee with some earthy wet wood. There is a light herbal hoppy kick that brings in some nice balance to the overall sweet brew. Alcohol is evident but not overbearing. Probably the most chocolate forward beer I have come across.

M: Feel is actually much thinner and lighter than anticipated. Still on the heavier side and very oily slick in texture but with a decent amount of drying in the finish to give nice balance.

D: A great desert beer to share among friends. I actually enjoyed this and found it more approachable than the Mokha.
The full 22oz was a bit much on my own so I made some killer brownies utilizing about ½ cup in the batter. Highly recommended.

Got this growler from Party Town in Florence, Ky.

A: This pours with little, or no head. It is BLACK in color.-to the point you can't see any color other than black when holding up to a light.
S: It smells amazing! I catch a little roasted vanilla, but dark and bittersweet choklat is over the top. It dominates this beer.
T: It taste like you are drinking a milkshake while eating a chocolatte candy bar. It is very sweet with a little bit of warmth in the chest after gong down. Very good, not sure a growler is a "best buy" when I am drinking it by myself. A 22oz bomber may even be too much.
D: The sweetness got to me over time, but I love ST beers and I think it's wonderful dessert beer for the chocolatte lover. I love that it's 11% and you can't really taste it!

4.05/5  rDev -4.7%

A - Pours shiny black with a foamy tan head. Minimal lacing, and head shrinks down to a rocky collar around the outside of the glass.

S - Wow, just full bore chocolate here. Reminds me of popping the top off a tub of Quick chocolate mix when I was a kid. No real malts or coffee here, but it's OK because the chocolate is so damn good.

T - Again, it's chocolate. Sweet and dark chocolate hit immediately, milk chocolate hits a bit later. I get some sweet cherry, and it finishes with a hint of clean hops to clean the palate.

M - Medium to thick body, creamy, really nice. Little more carbonation then expected.

D - Excellent, the chocolate is never too sweet and it has just enough bitterness to even it out. Never really tasted the booze.

4.05/5  rDev -4.7%

My first review on BA after about a year of trolling/research.

appearance = Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Not much head. Little to none carbonation. VERY dark in color.

smell = Extreme chocolate and cocoa. Aroma is almost of a chocolate syrup for ice cream, but lightly roasted.

taste = WOW! From the beginning, the chocolate is very forward. Hints of the barrel, as well as cherry and vanilla. Well balanced and not overdone, though. It's very easy to sip on like you would a chocolate milkshake as a kid after your soccer game. Might pair well with a medium rounded cigar or as an after dinner drink.

MF = a little thicker and heavier than average. Not too much, though. Coats the mouth just a little bit, but not enough for me to consider drinking it.

Drinkability = Very smooth and tasty. Definitely one worth sharing with a mild or medium cigar with friends after dinner. I will search this one back out to backstock for a special occasion.

4.05/5  rDev -4.7%

A: Black with mahogany highlights, tan head, very little retention, some leg/lace.

S: HUGE Bittersweet/bakers chocolate aroma, with underlying hints of molasses and port. The chocolate is phenomenal, but if it wasn't quite so overwhelming, this aroma would be a '5'.

T: Chocolate; VERY warming alcohol, like a chocolate martini; good bitterness, hint of molasses. Again wonderful, but a little one-dimensional.

M: Really well-attenuated (considering the strength), quite dry, moderate body has a slight creaminess.

D: It's a sipper.

4.05/5  rDev -4.7%

Poured from 22oz bomber into a pint glass.

Appearance: completely and utterly black with a relatively thin layer (a thin finger or so) of frothy dark-tan foam. Good color, though more head would be nice.

Smell: rich aroma of dark chocolate with a light sweetness mixed in. Smells smooth and creamy. It's a bit one-note, but oh that note.

Taste: big chocolate up front which fades into a maltier finish. There's a small amount of astringency here, but it doesn't seem overly alcoholic. Hops are a bit vegetal, which isn't too uncommon in the style. The very end brings in notes of roasted malt and coffee. If you're in the mood for a chocolate beer, this will fill the bill.

Mouthfeel: big body with a good level of carbonation which leaves a nice creaminess; there is also an awesome silkiness here which I love. Excellent.

Overall: to me, this is a highly enjoyable beer. It drinks far easier than its 11% ABV would suggest. It's not blow-me-away excellent, but it is a highly tasty and competent beer.

4.05/5  rDev -4.7%

I had Choklat in a tulip glass.

Appearance- This one pours a dark brown, and keeps that color with some streaks at the side of the glass. This is about as close to black as you can get. The head is impressive because it will sticks at a solid finger for most of the drink, keeping a mocha color.

Smell- It is a little on the light side, but man that milk chocolatiness is apparent. I like how the sweetness is not overbearing, but it is a bulls eye for chocolate.

Taste- The start of the drink has the milk chocolate flavor of the nose, but by mid drink there is some roast coffee grounds and earthiness.

And by the finish, a general alcohol heat barely peaks through, accompanied by a little dark chocolate. The flavors never fully come together, but it is pretty dang good.

Mouth feel- There is a good creaminess and smooth finish to this one, even despite the slight heat. Maybe it could be a bit bigger and stickier on the palate?

Overall- The nose gives hints of a fantastic milk chocolatiness. However, on the palate, the beer does not come together. The chocolate could be stronger and pervade the palate, without the roasted flavors and alcohol heat being so forward.

4.05/5  rDev -4.7%

Looks like...chocolate. Dark chocolate. With a creamy tan head that stays longer than expected for a beer so high in alchohol. Nice amount of lacing as well.

Smells like hot chocolate with a hint of coffee. Sounds like an oxymoron but theres also hints of vanilla in there. Doesnt really smell like "beer" except for the slight roasted maltiness but still smells delicious.

The taste at first is a powerful chocolate taste with a little booziness and subtle spice. The chocolate taste does linger between sips but not so refined and I have to admit, it is a little artificial tasting.

The mouthfeel is a lot lighter than I expected it to be. Not necessarily "crisp" with carbination but not as smooth and silky as I had hoped. Could use a little more body for sure.

Overall this is great beer to try at least once. For those that enjoy a dessert beer, this is a must. Its enjoyable and easy to drink considering how high the abv is. If only the texture was a little thicker and the flavors were more natural this could be an A/A+ beer. Almost want to throw a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top and make it a float!

4.05/5  rDev -4.7%

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

A- Black as night with a moderate head and very little lacing.

S- Chocolate liquor right off the bat. Upon warming up, notes of malt and burnt raisins kick in.

T- Well, the name of this beers does not lie. Rich, dark, and bitter chocolate notes give way to some slight marshmallow notes and toasty malts. I was hoping for a little more nuance to show through upon warming up, but it did not happen.

M- Fairly thin for the style. Slight alcoholic warmth, but not enough to balance things out. Perhaps a little syrupy after some time being open.

D- Well, it is darn tasty. Really, it is just a chocolate blast. Though not extremely balanced, it is actually pretty drinkable. I would not think this was 11% alc. of the bottle did not say so. I drank this on its own. Next time would like tom pair it with a dessert containing some tart and bitter fruits. Man, this just begs to be utilized in cooking application. Add to mole sauce? Perhaps some sort of reduction.

Once again, Southern Tier fails to disappoint.

Bottle split with my Girlfriend before we went out. From notes.

A - Poured black with decent carbonation. Film of tan head. No lace and no retention.

S - Chocolate milk strikes me first. Melted chocolate. Chocolate! Some slight vanilla and booze in the background but the milky chocolate notes dominate.

T - A little booze, chocolate is huge, vanilla, burnt sugar, molasses. Less chocolate than the aroma.

M - Good carbonation, full body, sweet, slightly boozy finish.

O/D - Very sweet. Good but obviously one dimensional, yet it does what I think it set out to acheive. Quite good.

A: Dark black with a nice bubbly head and moderate lacing.

S: Chocolate, and lots of it. The smell is dominated by rich dark chocolate aromas, with hints of a boozy alcohol character.

T/M: Lots more chocolate, rich and bittersweet. As it warms up, the alcohol becomes more pronounced, producing a nice balance between that heavy chocolate and the underlying booze. Very rich and creamy.

O: A nice, heavy, delicious stout loaded with chocolate flavor.

Served in snifter glass.

Appearance: Motor oil black with asoft head that comes off tan and disappears after a minute or so before taking a sip it was 1/4" at best off the body.

Smell: Before taking a sip you can tell it is a little sweet with hints of chocolate and malt.

Taste: Complex taste that is a borderline four and a half but I have had other double that raise the bar when it comes ot taste. Don't get me wrong it is good with its bitter chocolate feel and just a little sweet.

Mouth: Not sure what the IBUs are on this beer but trust me they must be high. Strong and subtle at the same time. Smooth and sticking.

Overall: This is good beer, not the best imperial stout but damn good. Salud!

22 ounce bottle acquired in a trade with todd1, thanks for the opportunity to try this top 100 brew, split with girlfriend and her dad tonight, poured into an old Budweiser mug with the three frgos on it

A-Black and oily looking, a little thinner body than expected, 3/4 inch forthy tan head, stuck around for close to ten minutes, nice retention, some lacing at the beginning

S-Chocolate, both milk and dark, roasted sweet malts, noble hops, real cocoa, burned barley, cream, butter, cookies, and more chocolate

T-I was wondering if I was drinking a milkshake or a beer for the first few sips, well maybe that is an exaggeration but I am trying to emphasize how much milk chocolate was in this bad boy, started off with cocoa, sweet malt in the middle filled with candied sugar, almost some coffee flavor in the finish, dry from some hoppiness in the aftertaste as well, got sweeter and thinner as it warmed but went down even less easily, not balanced but I did not expect it to be, lots of chocolate and it was quite tasty but super thick and heavy, limiting how much you can drink

M-Sweet, chewy, and slightly dry mouthfeel, a little syrupy but not very full at the same time, carbonation level was decent, taste lingered a long time, chocolate gave a sweet sensation

D-Could not drink more than ten ounces of this stuff and could barely get my seven or eight down tonight, heavy on the stomach, sweet, alcohol is well hidden though, 11% could definitely get you though

Have not had many Southern Tier brews but this one was one of the better ones I have tasted, most chocolate I have ever tasted or smelled in a beer and yes it even beat out Dr. Dremo's donut stout, this could probably age for several years, would drink again, certainly recommended

Had this on 2011-01-14 at Al's of Hampden in Enola, PA

A - Extremely dark brown with just a little light creeping through at the top edge of the glass. Short tan head with little lacing.

S - One dimensional smell of chocolate but my, oh my, what an abundance of it.

T - A great big wollop of both dark and very sweet milk chocolate. There a bit of hop presence but the aftertaste morphs from very sweet to an astingent coffee biterness with lingering sweetness. This helps disguise the still-apparent high ABV of this tasty brew. I like this but it's almost over the top for syrupy, chocolate flavor.

M - Mouthfeel is heavy with light-medium carbonation. Very thick and creamy.

D - A very fine beer that isn't sessionable for me. One glass is enough since it is so striking in its flavor. I tried mixing it 1/2 and 1/2 with a Hacker Pschorr Hefe and I liked the result a little better. It's as if cutting it allowed more of the nuances of the Choklat to shine through.

4.05/5  rDev -4.7%

Pitch black in color with a small, light khaki-colored head. The fine bubbles produce some sparse, splotchy lacing on my snifter. Big aroma of dark chocolate and cocoa powder, very befitting of the beer's name. Astringent roasted malt provides the underpinnings. Some slight floral and pine notes from American hops.

The flavor, while tasty, can't quite live up to the promise of the aroma. It starts sweet, but the sweetness is restrained by bitterness from roast and hops. Lots of dark chocolate, intertwined with astringent roasted malt. Some grassy Northwest hops show up on the finish. Mouthfeel is a bit thin for a high gravity stout, having a texture that's more akin to a porter. More heft would be appreciated. The carbonation holds up pretty well and is moderately soft.

A rich and flavorful offering from Southern Tier - one that's not cloying. The mouthfeel is a little lacking, but otherwise, Choklat is worthy of the respect it gets.

4.05/5  rDev -4.7%

650 ml.
Alc. 11.0% by Vol.
Served at 50 degrees in a Dogfish Head snifter
Stamped '227 A2 21:41' in ink near the bottom rim

Appearance - no light permeability except on the farthest reaches of the deep space blackness; tan head has short life; sparse lace; midway, its sets to a lifeless black ink in the glass; the abv can hand 1 excuse to the Vanity 101 professor here but that's good for .5

Smell - I considered going on a Bubba Gump shrimp ramble about the varieties of chocolate that I smell but I'll stick to chocolate syrup (early) and a bag of spent chocolate malts (very prominent later in the bottle); raisins; molasses; muted but credible, second-half dose of alcohol

Taste - here comes the big train; mirrors the nose with the addition of more of a bitter chocolate; hops try (and fail) to fight through grains and the alcohol -- which comes through late and hangs on for the aftertaste; hop shot rises in the aftertaste as well; with as much malt presence, its shocking that there's enough hops in the process to counter but they hold on admirably (but again, they lose); this one could benefit from cellar time

Mouthfeel - nice balance of carbonation and slickness with a deduction for some cutting alcohol; more exciting on the first of two pours

Drinkability - the potency of the aftertaste and the quality feel gave me time to sit back and analyze with no immediate need to dive back in

It's a meal and dessert in a glass. Slow down. This is a low speed zone and the chocolate tanker is coming through. Since its still March Madness season, Choklat is a quality 5 seed, but its definitely 1 and done. I'm going to hold 1 for a year and come back for another sample.

4.05/5  rDev -4.7%

Brief re-write of an old review. While this is still a great beer - with one HELL of a chocolaty aroma - it doesn't hold the same luster as it used to. It's still one of the best chocolate showcases of any beer on the market, however its lack of depth and sugar-laden finish can make it a bit wearisome after a while. Even half a bottle is far too sweet, and the overly thin texture doesn't help it out. This is still immensely enjoyable, especially considering it's as drinkable as a super-sweet, 10% dessert beer will ever be.

---

A: Pours an extremely dark body that looks a little thinner than one might expect. I like how vigorously the carbonation rises to the top, even if the one finger tan head has lacking retention/lacing.

S: A total sensory overload of dark, bittersweet chocolate. I mean HOLY SHIT. As a chocolate lover, this is total nirvana. I would complain about it upsetting the balance of the other stout characteristics (such as roastiness), but who cares? The smell is so amazingly in your face and shamelessly bold that it's hard not to fall in love with it.

T: I admit to having a bias toward chocolaty stouts (or, for that matter, chocolaty anything), but I have to admit. This is incredible. The booze does make a bit of an appearance on the finish, but it fits here. Aside from the bittersweet dark chocolate explosion (that thankfully doesn't feel or taste artificial), notes of dark fruit, coffee, and licorice pop up in patches. Still, this is something that knows what it's trying to accomplish, and doesn't go for anything different. Subtlety? Balance? Complexity? Fuck that. Here's more chocolate. Sure, I'm a huge advocate of those three criteria, but sometimes, you just want to be punched in the face with a certain flavor you really enjoy. That's exactly what Choklat is, an unashamedly one-note chocobomb. Chocoholics, your heaven in a bottle has arrived.

M: A little thin given its alcohol weight, but it bulks up just as it gets ready to leave the tongue covered in stickiness. Carbonation is low as expected, but dryness is high. Some of the flaws of its body may be more evident on a lesser beer, but it's hard to say it's overly porteresque (which it is) when the rest of the beer is so enjoyable.

O: I'd only ever drink one of these at a time, because trust me on this one - a little goes a long way, in fact, it would be best to share the bottle with friends. I can't give it all 5's in good conscience, since it's not quite perfect by any stretch, but I can't think of a beer I enjoyed more in such a long time.

It might be overdone for non-chocolate lovers, though. Even if you're not, it's more than worth a try. If you do love chocolate, then this is something to go out of your way to discover.

I was lucky enough to have this on draft at the Publick House in honor of Phin's appearance. The distributor rep said they had not planned on having it, but made a last minute change to have it on tap for the evening. I was very excited to experience a glass based upon the recent thread that posed the question, what is the most chocolate tasting beer available?

http://beeradvocate.com/forum/read/1458191

The beer was deep brown, bordering on black. Aroma was almost exclusively cocoa powder. There was no doubt about the flavor of this beer long before it ever touched your lips. There was a very creamy tan head that remained for a while then faded back into the black magic.

The taste was a burst of chocolate and really did remind me of bittersweet or unsweetened chocolate. Certainly a "big" flavor that asked you to savor the beer slowly. I was almost shocked that you couldn't really detect the high alcohol level as you drank the beer. Very nice. Later as it warmed considerably, you could definitely note the warmth from the alcohol but this was neither distracting nor unpleasant.

Drinkability was rather high for a single serving meaning this is no session beer.

Very nice effort, only outdone by the Crème Brulee Stout. But that's a story for another review!

Pours an almost black with a one finger head that doesnt stay too long. Not a whole lot of lacing either, especially for a stout. The smell is of chocolate, with a roastieness from the malt and alcohol. The taste is very chocolaty as well, but with several different chocolate flavors appearing through the taste. I still get a slight alcohol bite when I look for it. This is a very good beer, its sweet and chocolaty but not so sweet that i cant enjoy it. The mouthfeel is creamy and this is a very drinkable beer.

Now this is one crazy beer. I have to hand it to Crazynelson on this one. This was sent along with a twin during one of my first trades. I'm only now getting a chance to try it out.

Poured into a Duvel glass at around 45 degrees this beer has no head and very minimal lacing. The color is extremely dark brown - as evident when pouring. In the glass it is pitch black.

The aroma is just like chocolate syrup. I can also detect honey, ripe bananas, and rich malt (like when you open a can of unhopped malt extract). This smells extremely juicy.

The first taste brings me back to 1st grade sipping chocolate milk with too much hersey's chocolate syrup in it. The temperature, flavor, and even mouthfeel are strikingly similar. This is the craziest beer I've ever had the pleasure of drinking. And I do mean pleasure!!! By the way this might be the sweetest (almost sacchrine) tasting beer I've ever had; I'm ususally not a fan of these types of beers but I like this one.

The mouthfeel is smooth, somewhat thin but just about right. It's only a little thinner than milk - this is about like skim milk.

This beer is in no way a session beer. At 11.0% abv this is a night ended of a beer. My advice is to drink this on a weekday night at around 8pm and sip it until ready for bed. That's what I plan to do!

Cellar temp: 50-55
Color: Dark black, with thin tan head
Aroma: strong chocolate aroma dominates
Taste: strong chocolate, not very sweet, but overall pretty tasty, I then mixed 50:50 with Founders Imperial Stout for good combo. It tamed the Founder's hoppiness and gave it a good chocolate taste.
Overall: 4.1/5

Pours black. Two fingers tan head with nice retention.

Aroma of bitter bakers chocolate. Sugary sweetness on the nose as well.

Taste is bittersweet chocolate, malt and sugary sweetness. Slight roastiness.

Medium mouthfeel and carb.

Quite a nice beer. Big on the sweetness but doesn't overpower. A great value at under 8

Poured from a 22oz bomber.

Pitch black color with a head that falls quickly.

Aroma is pure chocolate, similar to hershey's syrup drizzled over a hershey kiss.

Taste is spot on rich, sweet chocolate with a full body that hides the alcohol well.

While I can't drink a lot of this, it is a great conversation piece that goes over well even among non-beer drinkers.
