Serving type is bottle poured into a snifter at recommended serving temp.

A: Pours jet black with very little to no head, but a cappuccino colored lacing. No noticeable carbonation, and just a slight lacing on the glass.

S: Exactly as advertised. Chocolate is very forward on the nose, with a slight caramel malt underneath. The chocolate is so prevalent on the nose, that you have to really be diligent to try to find any other smells from this one.

T: Again, Chocolate is the initial taste when trying this one. A bit thinner then i expected. For some reason i thought this beer would be a bit thicker. Alcohol is very well hidden. No alcohol burn at all, and is an extremely easy beer to drink. They go down very easy. After the initial taste of chocolate, there is a slight caramel flavor that comes out. The only lingering taste is a slight chocolate/caramel flavor that is barely perceptible.

M: Way thinner than i expected. Not watery by any extent, but an extremely thin beer for the style.

O: This beer goes down very easy, and if you like chocolate, then you will probably really enjoy this beer. Some may find the chocolate a bit forward or overpowering, but you know what you are signing up for when you pick up this beer. I actually enjoyed this more then i expected to, and will definitely be trying this again in the future. One thing though is the pairing of the beer if you are drinking this with a meal. I would either drink this as an after dinner drink, maybe with ice cream or cake, but would not drink this with a lighter main course dinner. Bottom line: Very good!

22 ounce bomber poured into a snifter.

A: Pours a black color with a half finger head and no lacing.

S: Mostly milk chocolate with a touch of dark fruit and roasted malts.

T: Lots of chocolate up front, but there are some roasted malts as well.

M: Medium to heavy bodied with some carbonation. Smooth.

O: A little chocolate heavy for my tastes, but it's as advertised. Great for someone who wants a chocolate forward stout.

a Dark as night. Pours thick with very little head, small ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass throughout.
s Like a chocolate bar, it smells like someone is melting chocolate for brownies.
t Slight malts flavor that gets pounded by a chocolate or cocoa flavor right away. Similar to a younges but much more enjoyable and smooth.
m The difference from the younges in that its not thin, this is definitely a stout. Great mouth feel.
o I really enjoyed it, great beer! Nice and dry, which is nice for a chocolate beer. Can hardly tell its 10% when its cold, comes out more as it warms up. Very very well done. Ill definitely have this again.

The pour is thick and dark, pretty much black with a normal/nominal mocha head.

The smells is pure milk chocolate. Every once in a while I think I might pick up a bit of roasted malts/coffee... no, just milk chocolate.

This is chocolate milk in a beer... excellent! Sweet, There's also a component of roasted malt and coffee that balances the sweetness quite nicely.

The beer is smooth and creamy with minimal carbonation. Makes it thick & viscous.

Some say Choklat is too sweet and I understand that point of view. I say, however, it is a wonderful example of chocolate flavors in a thick Imperial Stout. I could drink this every night after dinner for a wonderful treat. Well done, Southern Tier.
