look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance – Opaque super dark blackish brown, with a creamy, chocolaty brown head. Spotted lacing that sticks to the glass nicely.

Smell – Dark chocolate, heavy malt, sweet vanilla, and caramel!

Taste – Very similar to the smell. Delicious!

Mouthfeel – Lightly carbonated, silky, with a slightly bitter chocolate aftertaste.

Drinkability – Very easy drinking for 10%abv. Tastes somewhat similar to Rogue chocolate stout, but adds vanilla and a touch of caramel.

Poured this into a snifter.

A: Now I know why Southern Tier has this part of the BlackWater Series. This is exactly what this looks like. The deepest depths of black in my snifter.

S: Delicious dark and milk chocolate dominate my nose. I feel like I'm sniffing a Yoohoo. Good stuff here.

T: The taste follows the nose right out the gate. Once again the dark chocolate and milk chocolate are the stars of the show. The chocolate of course, gives off the coffee/espresso taste which is expected. Not really too complex of a brew but what I do taste is fantasticness.

M: A medium mouthfeel is what I get out of this beer. I also feel some mild chewiness which makes me want another sip.

Overall: This is a pretty solid brew. I know why this is in the top 100 and I would definitely grab another one if the time is right. The beer is called Choklat and if that's what you want, that's what you'll get with this beer. Many beers state that they are chocolate flavored, but they taste more like coffee than chocolate. This beer has both. You taste the dark chocolate and the milk chocolate/ coffee. Once again, solid brew and Southern Tier did a great job with this one.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a 34oz mug. Solid oily black that lets no light through. Smell is pure chocolate, with some hints of roasted and coffee and malt. After drinking, some hops are detectable in the smell as well. Taste is bitter and roasted at first, but smooths out to chocolatey deliciousness afterwards. Mouthfeel is full and creamy. Overall, this is exactly what a great stout, especially an imperial stout, should be. Awesome beer.

Challenging, supremely bitter, but exceptionally rewarding, this beer is outstanding. It pours black and thick with a brown-tan head. The smell is heavy on real chocolate, backed by a little booze. It is reminiscent of great Belgian chocolates. The taste is initially a creamy, complex chocolate and malt flavor. A serious, high octane bitterness comes out in the mid-taste. The finish is bitter, chocolatey, and full of charcoal, roasted, and mildly smokey flavors that, curiously, doesn't show up in the front. Full, creamy, and thick mouthfeel. The alcohol stays hidden, only showing up in my feeling after half a glass. Great beer.
