This is a beer I have had once b4 reviewing, so I've had limited experience with , but one I will never forget. 22oz bomber from the local beer store in Oregon. 8.99 - very nice price

Appearance is dark black with 1 finger of foam receding to almost nothing, just a spot of bubbles and slight ring. Nice color though, I like my imp stouts jet black.

Smell is amazing! the most chocolate forward smell you can ever experience.
Luscious cocoa and bitter chocolate, dark malt, more chocolate. Did I say cocoa? Oh yeah, lol BIG chocolate, as in hersheys bar or syrup. A hint of cordial cherry, sweetness, just a dessert of a beer.

Taste is the same, HUGE chocolate flavors, sweet, semi sweet, bitter, all hit at the front, middle, and aftertaste of this beer. Very dominating and appetizing to a chocolate lover. Some dark malt lingers around to round out the imperial stout experience. I love it, 5.

Mouthfeel is slightly slick and low carbonation, but its just fine according to my taste buds which are screaming in joy from the flavor.

Overall this is a must try for anyone a fan of chocolate, wine drinkers, hard alc drinkers, anyone who might find this enjoyable should give it a go, its like youngs double chocolate stout on steroids.

Poured from bottle into a snifter

Appearance – The beer pours a nearly pitch black color with a one finger of creamy-brown colored head. The head fades relatively quickly leaving a foam surface on the top of the brew and a bit of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – With a name like Choklat would suggest, the aroma is super heavy of well… chocolate. The chocolate aroma is really quite delicious and sweet. It has a milk chocolate like smell mixed with some vanilla and a little bit of caramel. Along with the big sweet chocolate smell, there is some roasted malt and lighter coffee smells as well as just a bit of an alcohol booziness.

Taste – The taste begins with a delicious and smooth milk chocolate flavor mixed with vanilla and brown sugar. Some caramel is there as well, with it fading as the taste advances. While the caramel fades more milky and creamy sweetness comes to the tongue keeping the beer very sweet and chocolaty overall. More toward the middle, some lighter coffee flavors start coming to the tongue as well as a roasted malt flavor joining the taste as well. The coffee grows in intensity and is joined by some earthy and woody like flavors. In the end, the lighter bitterness added from the earthy, woody, and coffee flavors mix and balance rather nicely with the sweeter milk chocolate tastes, leaving a very satisfying and rather creamy and smooth sweeter chocolate flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is medium in thickness and creaminess for a beer of 10 % abv. with a carbonation the in on the average side. While both are decent for the style and flavors I would have liked to see a creamier body and a lower carbonation as both would have really allowed all those delicious chocolate flavors to coat the mouth in all the intense flavors.

Overall –The beer is like a sweet milk chocolate bar made into a beer and balanced out with a bit of bittering flavors. This one was super delicious and an amazing desert beer.
