Wow. This is crazy good. CRAZY GOOD I say. Beautiful deep brown color with a nice tan head. No light getting through this guy. Smells like an earthy milk chocolate... nutella or hershey's comes to mind, maybe even yoohoo, with some vanilla in the background.

Tastes more bitter than it smells, which I prefer. Definitely some espresso bean flavor, a little smokyness. A bit of a nutty flavor. The alcohol is not at all overwhelming, and the hops balance everything out pretty spiffy. Mouthfeel is perrrfect. Full, smooth, bubbly, chewy.

Overall this is a yummy brew. Still a bit too sweet for me, but very good all around. Cheers Souther Tier.

The pour was smooth. The color was an enriched dark brown. A little head to the brew, an off white frothy color. Both of which I look for in a dark brew. The smell is as if you melted a chocolate bar and just poured it into the bottle.
Very sweet and inviting.
Starts off with a sweetness and than the Pop of the chocolate flavor. The sweet chocolate flavor is than replaced by the bitterness of the chocolate. The mouthfeel is smooth not to big. Just can't explain it any more than chocolate goodness.
I find this brew to be very drinkable. I believe that southern tier really nailed this brew. It isn't over powering in the alcohol, which does make it a "trouble making brew." A great after dinner beer but also one that is a great treat during the winter season.

22 ounce bomber. Snifter glass.

A - No complaints here. Split a bomber with my buddy before and now pouring it into a snifter. Pitch black. A nice finger thick head that's egg shell color. Very nice.

S - Smells like chocolate. It is what it adverstises. On the nose it comes straightforward as old school Hershey Syrup, but also hassome dark chocolate smell. Really sweet, and completely head on chocolate on the nose.

T - What more to say. Comes through with some initial sweetness. Continues with a TON of chocoalate flavor, leads to a tiny burnt character but follows through with chocolate flavor to the finish.

M - Nice and smooth. Medium to full body lends itself to a TON of chocolate flavor.

D - Simply indescribable. I could see this beer getting someone in trouble (IE too Drunk) as it tastes so smooth and chocolatey and the alcohol is well hidden. As it is, a great chocolate sipper, either after dinner or just because. Great beer from Southern Tier.

Bomber courtesy of vwcraig. Dark black color, egg-shell colored head which is less than minimal. First smell was like opening a hershey bar and then cracking it in half. Subsequent sniffs give off tootsie rolls and cocoa powder. The taste is very good if you like chocolate milkshakes! I can't taste the alcohol which is good since it is high! Overall, if you are looking for a dessert beer or just have a sweet tooth, this one is for you.

First let me begin by saying I am not a fan of most Southern Tier products. That said, Choklat is easily one of the best beers I've EVER tasted. This brew, while not the most complex beer in the world, is exactly what the name implies. If you like chocolate, it's not possible to dislike this beer!

Pours pitch black but not particularly heavy with a very thin, bubbly tan head. The smell is all chocolate, dark chocolate with a tinge of alcohol. The taste, well, what can I say? It's like drinking a melted quality semi-sweet or dark chocolate bar (think Lindt or Godiva). This is serious chocolate!! It's that simple yet incredibly wonderful. It's only slight downfall is it's not the type of beer you're going to be drinking a lot of but isn't that the case for most extreme or big beers?

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2

Appearance: Dark Brown with a light brown head that lasts and lasts as a thin skim.

Aroma: Boozy and bitter dark chocolate. Tootsie roll like sweet chocolate too.

Taste: Chocolate dominates, making up perhaps 90 plus percent of the profile. Touches of roasted malt and crème fill in the rest.

Mouthfeel: Boozy but only lightly burning, bittersweet, fairly full bodied but still surprisingly light considering the abv.

Drinkability: Not good at all for me. This is too tootsie roll like and one dimensional for my tastes. I have a hard time drinking this in any serious quantity. Good for what it is trying to be though.

Pours black but lets a little light through if held up to the light. Tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is Chocolate with a capitol C. Smells more like hershey's syrup than an imperial stout. I pickup some dark chocolates as well. Taste follows the smell, but adds some alcohol as well. Mouthfeel is smooth velvety creamy. Has an almost artificial chocolate aftertaste. Great brew. I couldn't drink to many of these, its a bit sweet, but great dessert drink.

Southern Tier- Choklat

A- Deep thick black with a small solid head.
S- HUGE chocolate aroma. You can smell this 1 before lifting it up from the bar! Thick fudge, milk chocolate, and chocolate icing!
T- Big sweet milk chocolate, cool whip/ whipped cream, and spongy chocolate cake.
M- Sweet, sweet, sweet, with a creamy smooth finish.

Overall- Damn good dessert beer! I could only drink 1, maybe 2 of these but this was quite the treat!

Thanks to my buddy Franksandbeans for this motha
L:The head reminds me of all those nestle quick chocolate milks I made as a kid. One finger. The color itself is dark as night with no light to be seen at all while looking through..
S: The most over powering smell of all is that sweet milk chocolate.
T:Oh sweet lord was this good. Like biting in to a thick rich chocolate bar. It almost melts in yout mouth it is so chocolate.
M:Oh so rich and thick. Very round and incredibly deliscious. Very mouth pleasing.
D:Definitely one of the best chocolate stouts I have had. Like a chocolate cake.

22oz bomber served in a Sam Adams glass. Thanks to mikesgroove for this one.

A - Pours thick and dark black. Nice tannish brown head that fades to a small layer leaving a coating/lace on the glass

S - Actually reminds me of Chicago. The smell is similar to when the wind is right and you can catch wiffs of the Blommer Chocolate Factory. So anyway, big cocoa powder smells. Like a freaking Hershey bar. There is a bit of alcohol in the back too.

T - Wow, okay... This is a desert beer for sure. Tastes like a rich chocolaty, boozy concotion. I don't know if I have had a beer that tastes quite like this. Similar to the way some fruit beers cover up the "beer" flavor the choco dominates the normal stout flavors.

M - Smooth and creamy all the way. Coats the mouth well.

D - Now this is a good beer, but the second half of the bomber was hard on my own. This beer NEEDS to be shared.

Overall, this is a very good stout. It is more of a dessert beer so keep that in mind. This beer is a chocolate lovers wet dream.

$7.49 for a 22oz bomber at Merchant's. 11% ABV per the label. OG=27d Plato. Brewed with 2-row barley malt, caramel 60, barley flakes,chocolate malt, bittersweet Beglain chocolate, and hopped with Chinook and Willamette. Pours to a clear near-black...not oily and shiny, but near black, requiring a firm pour to achieve a medium sized soapy and pancakey head which quickly recedes and leaves little lace. Carbonation level is mild. The aroma is very much liquid tootsie roll, even more so than the Kuhnhenn Raspberry Eisbock. There's not a whole lot more to pick up in the nose besides the chocolate. Reminds me of Sam Adams Chocolate bock in the nose. The mouthfeel is big, chewy, slick and oily with a big dense body. The taste...wow...lots of melted milk chocolate. The bitterness is very mild and there is very little competition to the chocolate. There is a subtle taste which tells you this is beer, but it's not readily apparent. A little cola-like in the finish, like a chocolate cola.

While chocolate beer doesn't readily appeal to me, this is definitely the best one I've tasted so far. This is a real treat, and I wish Ihad someone to share it with, as a 22oz bomber by myself is going to be a chore. Despite how rich and intense it is, it's drinkability is pretty good. It' certainly doesn't drink like an 11% ABV brew. I would have this one again, and would recommend it to others. Nice job Southern Tier!

Pours pitch black in a snifer, light foamy head that laced perfectly down the glass. Looks damn good.

This is the best thing I have smelled in a very long time. This is what it would smell like in a chocolate factory when you are hungry. Sweet chocolate, followed by some alcohol make the aroma good enough to open this.

Tastes light a semi/bittersweet chocolate bar mixed up with some malt and alcohol. Not enough alcohol to burn, just to let you know it is there. Starts sweet ends bitter and makes you want another swig with the almost German chocolate cake aftertaste.

The feel is good, I just wish it were a little thicker and chewier. Everything else is proper.

I like this one a lot. This is the best dessert beer I have had. I am sure there are better ones out there, but this is the best I have had. Perfect mix of chocolate and beer. Offer this before me if I ever become a god.

There was a weak hiss when the bottle was opened. It looked viscous during the pour and produced a very thin skim of fine, tan bubbles. A thin collar produced spotty lacing. The beer itself was very dark and opaque. The aroma was big on milk and semisweet chocolate, sort of like chocolate liqueur. Smells like dessert. A bit of roast as it warmed. Semisweet chocolate flavour dominates, bitterness is well balanced and there's light alcohol that appears towards the finish. Light roasty notes were present, along with a bit of malty caramel. There was a hint of earthy hops in the finish. Full bodied with fine carbonation, definitely on the low side. Mild warmth, nice texture, very smooth. This stuff goes down so easy it's ridiculous. The only thing slowing me down is that I know it's 11%. I'd never guess it was that high. Great stuff!

Thanks to Rageagainst123 for the trade.

Appearance: Black brew with a slight dark tan head that quickly disappears and leaves a slim ring around the glass. Good looking stout.

Smell: Bittersweet dark chocolate. Very strong and very nice.

Taste: Chocolate all the way. Which is a good thing as a sweet lover. This beer has a deep, dark chocolate flavor which is richer than any chocolate stout I have tried. Very good flavor.

Mouthfeel: Very nice again. The chocolate flavor coats the mouth very nicely and leaves a very strong chocolate flavor behind for you to enjoy until your next sip. Good thickness and very smooth.

Drinkability: Very high. This is a wonderful beer whose only negative may be the 11% ABV. Though not evident, it will eventually catch up with you. This is the best chocolate stout I have tasted and one of the best beers I have tried. If you love chocolate, this is something you must try. Very highly recommended.

22oz. bomber. Thanks to BA Deuane for sharing!

A - Pitch black with deep ruby edges and short, light brown creamy head that quickly vanished. Small amount of sparse lacing around the glass.

S - Huge chocolate nose akin to Hershey's chocolate syrup or even a Tootsie Roll. Some ripe banana aroma as well. Smells almost like a chocolate banana split.

T - Surprisingly quite bitter chocolate aspect compared to the sweet aroma. Very mild burnt finish with more bitter chocolate notes.

M - Full-bodied, chewy mouthfeel with a slick, oily texture. Bitter aspect all over the tongue. Creamy bittersweet finish.

D - Great dessert beer. The aroma is simply amazing. Very solid chocolate stout with an 11% ABV that hides behind a wall of bittersweet chocolate goodness.

A 650 mL bottle purchased at State Line just before Christmas.

A: The stout is a beautiful onyx black color, dark as a moonless night but with more character. Little carbonation rose off of the initial pour and htere appears to be no lacing in the future.

S: Lots of chocolate, a mix of bitter baker's chocolate and sweet milk chocolate. The whole package is a decadent aroma of chocolate with undertones of coffee.

T: This is a knock-out, so full of intensely delicious chocolate flavors that it is hard to believe that this is beer. The taste is rightfully dominated by the chocolate, slightly sweet with a long tail. The only indication of the imperial stout portion of the beer is a lingering acrid bitterness from toasted and roasted grains. When the stout is allowed to sit in the mouth, an alcoholic heat damn near burns the tongue. If not for that alcohol intensity, this beer would be perfect.

M: The beer has such an intensely strong flavor that I can't help but savor every sip. A mouth can go a whole lifetime without experiencing something like this.

D: The alcohol is through the roof. It rears its head throughout the bottle and often adds a level of heat that is unwarranted. If not for the alcohol, I'd request this intravenously.

I have always loved to eat chocolate and drink a nice stout for dessert. I have also been searching for a long time for a chocolate or mocha stout that would make me just as happy and I hadn't found it until now. I bought all I could find.

Beautiful very dark brown color.
Deep, sweet chocolate aroma. I could smell the chocolate before I could smell the beer.
The taste was a revelation for me (see above paragraph.)
Smooth, silky, sweet, barely carbonated mouthfeel.

Great job ST Brewing! You have broken new ground with this one!

On tap at Ginger Man in NYC!
A- Dark brown hue, tan creamy head dissipates, moderate lacing
S- Rich, sweet milk chocolate, hints of marshmallow and brown sugar, smells like an amazing cup of cocoa
T- Taste follows aroma, sweet chocolate malts dominate, some roast and bitter hops in the middle, finishes sweet and dry with a hint of alcohol, absolutely delicious for this style
M- Medium/full-bodied, smooth and creamy texture, mild carbonation
D- Wow, this is the tastiest and most balanced chocolate stout I've ever drank, a nice bitterness rounds out the sweet malts, the alcohol is barely detectable even at 11%, this is like having desert, and as such, probably best in smaller quantities

Wow. Some people hate this beer - I would pour it over ice cream. I feel that this is an amazing brew. When I first tried it, everyone I shared it with was speechless.

Poured part of a bomber in a snifter glass.

Appearance - It produced a 1/2 finger tannish head. The head dissipated fairly quickly without leaving much lace behind. It is a dark opaque blackish brown color and light can only penetrate the perimeter of the brew.

Smell - The smell is awesome. It smells just like its namesake implies. I can smell all types of chocolate, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, Yoohoo. I can also smell hops, and as the beer warms I can detect the booze.

Taste - Man this tastes amazing. I can taste primarily bittersweet chocolate, but it is really an evolution of chocolate - it runs the gambit. I can taste milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and cocoa powder. There is a hop backend to the flavor which is really tasty. The ABV is undetectable in the flavor. It is rare that a beer of this style isn't dominated by a roasty flavor. This beer is pretty much devoid of any roastiness.

Mouthfeel - Medium/full bodied. It is creamy while still having a nice carbonation level. It is smooth and velvety as it slides down the back of your throat.

Drinkability - Wow this amazing. I was really impressed with this brew. It is such an easy drinking beer for it being 11% ABV. It pairs with dark chocolate perfectly - makes a perfect dessert. For me, it lived up to the hype.

Find it, hoard it, share it with friends.

(Served in a snifter)

A- A jet black body has a few tiny bubbles stuck to the glass but that is all I can see of carbonation. There is a thick film of tan head that leaves a nice bit of broken lace stuck to the glass after each sip.

S- The big chocolate nougat flavor has a light marshmallow quality and a strong smell of Hershey's chocolate syrup in the finish.

T- The taste of tootsie rolls and chewy chocolate nougat has some lighter flavors of roasted black malt for support. The bitterness of black grain lingers a bit after each sip. No fusel alcohol at all until the last few warm sips.

M- This beer has a medium-full mouthfeel with no alcohol heat until it warms a bit and then it is a pleasant soft burn.

D- This beer is not overly sweet but it is overly chocolate candy flavored, and not real milk or dark chocolate just chocolate candy. The first glass was novel but the second glass was hard to get through. There isn't much malt supporting the tootsie roll flavor. The beer underneath has some nice flavors.

22oz bomber served at 45 degrees and poured into a Snifter Glass

A – Poured the thickest darkest brown chocolate syrup looking liquid I think I ever have seen. I mean this stuff looked serious. Almost had the consistency of chocolate syrup on the pour, but with a much darker color. A large three finger high head of rich tan colored lace then rose up and above it crowning the top wonderfully. This hung around for easily a few minutes before finally settling down and easing into just a thin layer of chocolate colored foam across the top which hung around until the very end. The side glass lace on this one was extraordinary as well, really coating the inside of the glass and doing on number on it throughout the entire session. Really quite a thick looking stout, I was definitely liking what I am seeing so far.

S – I will give you one guess as to where this was going with regards to the aroma. Deep rich milk chocolate covered this one entirely. Now I have had a few chocolate stouts in my day, but nothing came even remotely close to mimicking the smell coming off of this one. It was like something straight out of Hershey. Not the deep dark chocolate malt smell you are used to, this was rich creamy milk chocolate and the difference was never clearer then it was here. There was also a touch of bourbon like alcohol that you could pick up way in the back that was also making its presence known. This was not such a big player, but was more just giving you a little hint at some of the depth that was lying in waiting here.

T – I am not sure where to begin on this one. I have never tasted something that was more designed to be not only drank while eating dessert, but more to a be a dessert in of itself. This was just the most rich and creamy chocolate drink I think I have ever had. Really hard to quantify this as a beer from the flavor, it has almost no semblance of a beer like flavor. Such rich milk chocolate tastes that it was really hard to even find anything else that was hiding in the back, but if you really tried you could find it. First off this baby is over 11% ABV, and it has to be the smoothest I have ever seen for something so big. There was really no hint of the alcohol in the flavor at all; rather it was just a touch of bourbon or brandy like warmth that came through as you sipping. There was a touch of hops in the finish, just enough to dry it out and give you just a touch of bitter at the end. Overall though this was chocolates day to rule the roost and nothing was going to be its undoing in the one.

M – One of the smoothest, creamiest brews I have ever had the pleasure of trying. The consistency here was as smooth as silk, literally with a rich texture that was so thick and viscous, it almost redefined the style. There was just this mousse like quality to it that cannot be ignored. It was just a wonderful interpretation of the style and a really phenomenal beer.

D – This is the only category that gets a little tricky for me. Now…it is definitely a quality beer there is no disputing that, and for a late night sipper, it would be hard to find its equal. However there was a limit on this one as to how much you can actually sip. First off it is very strong, you may not think it is, but it is and it will catch up to you. Secondly there was the fact that it was so rich. After about the third glass I had reached my limit. It is so sweet that it is difficult to try and have much more, too sweet. But this should not be a knock as I probably just had them a little too fast.

Overall I don’t know what else I can say about this one. It was truly unique and unlike any that I had had previous. Truly a chocolate stout that all others should be measured by. This was definitely deserving of its reputation and is a fine example of the style. A wonderful beer that everyone should get a chance to try.

Up to now I've thought of Southern Tier as a "light beer" brewer, by which I mean I think of them as a brewer of good APA/IPA and the like. There are other brewers I think of as good "dark beer" brewers (like Bell's for instance) and there are others I think of as good Belgian beer brewers (Ommegang, etc). It's not often you find a brewer that can pull off 2 or more of these categories well. This beer challenges that notion in my mind; I really liked Choklat.

The funny thing about this beer was that it did not strike me as being exceptionally beer like in flavor and aroma. It really reminded me of a really good dessert or the world's best glass of chocolate milk. It's tough to describe this beer in flavor/aroma terms I'm used to using; it was really chocolate-y and creamy. Appearance was an opaque black with a tan head. Mouthfeel was quite smooth and also was rather creamy and pleasant.

I really liked this beer. I picked up this 22oz bottle from Three Cellars in Franklin, WI.

Pours a dark, dark brown with a tan head that cascades and rapidly vanishes.

Smells like chocolate and faintly of malt. Taste is sublime; rich roasted chocolate, milk chocolate, a bitter chocolate aftertaste, and roasted malt with a bit of smokiness. There's not much else going on with this beer, but there doesn't need to be. Nice thick, viscuous mouthfeel.

Great.

this beer a very dark brown, with not too much a of a head, and what is there, doesn't stick around for long.
the aroma is well, quality dark chocolate. tiny hints of dark fruit here and there, along with a faint grainyness, but chocolate dominates.
phew... this is like downing rich liquid chocolate cake. it's got this amazing fudgy cake-y quality that's just fantastic. i personally didn't take anything else away flavor-wise, but if this isn't a chocolate stout i don't know what is... the funny thing about it is that it's not overpowering, it maintains some sort of chocolatey balance, with what i'm not sure, but it keeps itself in check very well.
it's full bodied with adequate carbonation, enough to keep it from being syrupy.
a beautiful beer that drinks like you wouldn't believe for such a hefty stout. i highly encourage you to try this in any form you can find it. i actually passed this up in a bottle recently, but on a whim gave it a shot when i saw it on tap, and i was blown away.

Pours the color of motor oil into my tulip glass. A finger-thick bone colored head forms at the top but quickkly dissipates to an oily surface layer with some bubbly edging around my glass.

Aroma reminds me of being at Hershey Chocolate World because the chocolate aroma smells like rich milk chocolate! A slight mocha flavor also comes through on the nose with just a tingle of the alcohol.

A thick, rich body gives way to a very sweet, chocolate flavor that overpowers the entire brew nicely! This reminds me of chocolate milk really it is THAT SMOOTH. A bit of grassy hops comes through toward the finish helping to dry out and get a bit bitter while the alcohol comes through to tingle my tongue for a bit. AFtertaste is still...chocolate!

Great balance to this brew. This is definintely something to share to allow others to enjoy it! Cheers!
