I must admit ive been keen to try this brew ever since i bought it but just been trying to find the right occasion as i have heard its pretty sweet so i find myself drinking this beer as a nightcap and obviously as most have said before my bottle states that it is 11% ABV and not 9.1% so here goes,it pours a dark,dark cola colour with nice carbonation that leaves a one finger mocha laced head and average lacing here and there,the aroma is so sweet its not funny almost like pure dutch cocoa and not much else but as i like my chocolate i love this aroma,it has a beautiful smooth velvety mouthfeel which just slides down with strong tastes of rich chocolatey cocoa,caramel and it finishes with a nice bittersweet finish to make you want to have another sip and the 11% ABV is very well hidden to make this without doubt the best example of this style i have tasted so far it is very sweet,tasty but yet moreish which i think is due to the use of hops and would be very easy to match with desert,i really like this brew as i find it perfectly balanced in sweet and bitter and have not tasted a brew that is close to this quality for the style and will be buying more of cheers.

I've been sitting on this trade for so long, I don't even remember who sent it to me. Regardless, a big thanks goes out to that fine fellow.

The label states this beer is actually a 11% ABV beer, not 9.1%. Served, as suggested, cool into a snifter. It pours a very dark brown color with good clarity, both evident only as it travels from bottle to glass. There is no head at all so that's the only real letdown.

The aroma is just unbelieveable. I never would've thought that a beer could smell like liquid chocolate. It's absolutely wonderful - a melted chocolate bar with toasted marshmallows. No alcohol detected here either, which is nice.

As much as I love the aroma, I'm thankful when I discover the flavor has a healthy dose of roast so it isn't nearly as sweet as the smell would suggest. There is still a nice sweet chocolate taste up front but from middle to end, it has great roasted malt and dark coffee character. The sweet and bitter balance wonderfully but it's still a very strong beer and this is where the alcohol starts to really show. It's not overwhelming but it is certainly noticable.

Mouthfeel is medium-plus in body with lowish carbonation. As said, the balance is great but the strength of flavor, bitterness, and alcohol is wearing.

Overall an amazing beer and unlike anything else I've ever had. A truly special brew.

Pours a dark black color. 1/3 inch head of a tan color. Decent retention and decent lacing. Smells of hops, sweet malt, chocolate, slight roasted malt, and slight yeast. Fits the style of an American Double / Imperial Stout. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp with an average carbonation level. There is also a noticeable bitterness. Tastes of chocolate, hops, sweet malt, and slight roasted malt. Overall, a sweet chocolate tastes up front that is cut with a bitterness. The chocolate is not too cloying.

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

Poured from a 22 oz bomber at cellar temperature into a tulip glass.

Bottle says 11% ABV, not 9.1%

A-Deep black pour with a huge creamy light brown head that settles to about half an inch in the glass.

S-Not quite what I was expecting. Chocolate syrup covered Belgian waffles, some hops but predominately chocolate.

D-Did I say chocolate? Wow...there are alot of stouts out there that do the whole mocha/chocolate thing, but I have never quite tasted anything like this. Intitially sweeter than expected, the palate opens with a blast of creamy chocolate goodness, (think melted Ben & Jerry's with some fudge on top for good measure) a scoop of mocha, and a slightly peppery hop presence on the back end. Holy crap this is delicious...more of a dessert than a beer...No way this can be 11% ABV...just no way!

M-Full, rich, creamy, smooth, with light carbonation...rolls off the tongue like melted chocolate sauce....heavenly.

D-Oh so drinkable, but is this beer? I'm not a cook, but I can imagine using this for some sort of dessert....wait...no...I think I'll just skip the dessert and drink another bottle.

After some false starts with Southern Tier, I'm really starting to like their offerings alot. I know alot of people don't like sweet beers, but I'm a sucker for them. While this one is not overly sweet like say, Creme Brulee, it strikes a nice balance, and is easily one of the best sweet stouts I have tried, and definately the best chocolate beer I have tried to date.

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

Typical stout appearance, very dark brown/borderline black, with cinnamon colored head. Retention is low.

The smell is obviously chocolate for the most part. Very sweet and also very dark roast. It's very strong and there's no mistaking it.

I was a little let down by the taste. Oh yeah, it's chocolate, but it's like Hersey syrup. Not that I don't like Hersey syrup, but it's better over ice cream or in milk than in my stout. That's basically the entire flavor profile. There's a roasted malt in there somewhere, but it's more in the scent than anything. It gets some bonus points for definitely being committed to the name and doing it with conviction.

Mouthfeel was thin and overcarbonated for my liking in a stout.

Drinkability is just barely over average. It's interesting at first, but becomes rather gimmicky in no time. I actually used half of this bomber to make a choklat stout frozen custard. It was much more enjoyable in that form than in it's liquid state.

What a treat here from ST. Pours a dark opaque black with some mahogany highlights. Some cocoa power head, though fades relatively quickly. Smell is wonderful--roasted malts, a bit of coffee, and a blast of milk chocolate. Taste is just as good-- big semi-dark chocolate notes that fade into a bit of roasted malt, chocolate malt, and coffee. This one is certainly heavy on the chocolate and I love it. The only relative disappointment is the MF for me--it's too thin for a stout. Smooth, definitely, but I was hoping for a creamier brew. Drinkability is off the charts, I would have guessed 7% ABV. Unbelievable beer-- one of my favorites.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Had a jet black color with a small but fair sized tan colored head. The head dissipated pretty quickly, but it all still looked pretty appetizing.

Smell: Strong chocolate smell. This was by far the dominating aroma and it almost smelled like Hershey's syrup. It smelled delicious.

Taste: Not only did it smell like chocolate syrup, it tasted like it too. It made me think I was drinking a liquefied, lightly carbonated chocolate bar. There was no hint of alcohol. Fantastic.

Mouthfeel: Had a nice full body that was pretty creamy and smooth.

Drinkability: This is the only downside to this beer. It's a little rich for my taste. I think I could only have one, maybe two in one sitting before I got too full to have anything else. The high alcohol content also takes it down a notch. This is a really good beer, but I could only have one from time to time.

22oz. bottle poured into a snifter. 10-01-08 printed on the bottle.

(A)- Pours a pitch black color that produced a tan head. Dissipated quickly, but left some big clumps of bubbles.

(S)- Dense & rich cocoa, chocolate, & dark chocolate. Very malty & sweet smelling. This has some dense, thick, chocolate notes.

(T)- Tons of sweet & rich chocolate characters. Some bitter chocolate, creamy milk chocolate, and a bready/neutral cocoa. Tastes like a chocolate shake that had an extra pump or two of chocolate syrup than normal. Finishes dry.

(M)- A good carbonation level. A decent balance to it. Ridiculously rich & decadent. A touch of dryness & bitterness. Extremely sugary sweet.

(D)- Definitely a dessert beer. Tastes good, but does not lend itself to being a great drinker. Split with at least 3 ppl; its gonna be very hard to finish this by myself. 1/2 a glass of this feels like I just ate 5 chocolate shakes; very filling.

Interesting specs/ingredients listed on bottle:

27 Plato
195L
2-row barley
caramel 60 malt
barley flakes
chocolate malt
bittersweet Belgian chocolate
kettle hops chinook and willamette
(I think more breweries should list what they put in a beer. It interests me) As for the beer itself:

A: Black, opaque viscous liquid with no head and no lacing. It's a stout for sure, but I guess I was expecting a better looking brew; it looks like lesser carbonated cola to me.

S: Wow. Chocolate and malt and more dark bitter chocolate. This one just smells like a chocolate (and beer) lovers dream.

T: Decadent bitter chocolate, not as sweet as it smells but well balanced. Too sweet and it would have been a bit of a turn off. Even so, it has a bitter chocolate, malty flavor without any overwhelming, syrupy or cloying aspects.

M: Chalky malt and less than moderate carbonation help to balance out the intense and somewhat bittersweet chocolate. Doesn't go down super easy (it is a stout) and the intense and robust flavors certainly don't help. Not to mention a fairly above average ABV. A sipper to be shared.

D: Here is a good example, IMHO, where looks are deceiving. Not the most noteworthy looking brew by any means, but a surprising one by it's taste and complexity. I usually prefer my beers to be as visually appealing as they are taste-wise (see Duvel), but this one was a pleasant surprise. Probably best to be enjoyed in smaller quantities, because of the ABV and the bittersweet chocolate could get tiresome after awhile. Still, a stout I would re-visit.

Poured out as an inky black brew into my glass. A nice tannish head, with lacing running down the whole glass as I drink.

This smells like someone poured hershey's chocolate syrup into my beer, or melted the bar into it either way. A nice chocolaty smell to it, a bit of a hint of coffee in there.

It tastes a lot like it smell chocolate milk, with a bit of a kick. A bit of coffee notes in the taste.

A nice thick feel in the mouth. A velvet smooth feel to the beer.
Decent carbonation to the brew.

This is a desert beer. I enjoyed it but 22 is a bit much for me at one time this would be perfect for the end to a nice meal with some chocolaty desert.

9.5oz pour from Fat Heads, served in a small snifter

A - black, pitch black...thin layer of dark tan foam, laced a bit the whole time

S - woah. chocolate...the kind when you were a kid making chocolate milk with Hershey's syrup, and you used to much and left with a big oil slick at the bottom of the glass. exactly that smell. some big bittering and earthy hops, and a faint bit of roasted coffee.

T - just about the same thing as the nose, Hershey's syrup straight out of the bottle and melted Hershey's kisses. bittered by some hops near the end, thats about all the character and variety this one has to offer.

M - insanely thick and creamy, just a touch of carbonation to help speed things along.

D - about as i expected from a brewery which doesnt ever mess around...yummy but one-sided. struggled about halfway through this baby pour. definitely glad i had this on tap in such a small serving as opposed to opening a bottle and finding people to work on this with. quite unique.

I entered the small but excellent Piccadilly at The Crossing tonight, looking for something I had yet to try. "Southern Tier Chokolat has come in..." the manager uttered. Tag it and bag it, please, I exclaimed. Jeez, the serendipitous timing tonight. This was a master stroke of luck.

Two fat fingers of mocha froth top a black body with dark ruby trim. Very good duration and lots of lacing on the trusty Duvel tulip. The smell is so chocolaty, it's incredible. It's literally thoroughly chocolate. On the one hand, one might wonder where the beer is. On the other hand, if a beer calls itself Chokolat and, in the smell, thoroughly is chocolate, can I penalize it for that? Hardly. There are some caramel malt as well as some berry peeking through, but this is undoubtedly milk, dark, and semi-sweet chocolate.

The taste confirms this, but reveals greater complexity--caramel, roasted hazelnut coffee, and some grit from the advertised chinook and willamette emerging in the second half. Sweet, nutty, a tad bitter, and smooth. Honestly, this is brilliant beer, simply brilliant. The mouthfeel is ideal--smooth, creamy, and chocolaty sweet with an unmistakable bitter hop bite in the finish. Although the ABV remains mostly hidden throughout this delight, it unquestionably emerges in the second half.

ST continues to go above and beyond what earthly expectations I harbor for their wares. Chokolat is just amazing, the liquid embodiment of chocolate/DIS beer that exists. I have never tasted a beer this chocolaty, and may never again.

Incredible.

Got to sample this at the local liquor store's spring "Beerfest" sampling. Decided to bring home a bottle.

A: Very dark, poured with almost no head at all. I don't think this brew could produce head if it wanted to.

S: Rich cocoa and coffee smells were most readily apparent, almost smells like chocolate ice cream.

T: The coffee from before hits the palate first, immediately followed by a rich chocolate taste, not sweet or bitter, but just right. Following is a slight hint of alcohol and hops.

M: Fair amount of carbonation, very thick for a beer, almost a little syrupy.

D: Very drinkable, makes a great after dinner beer.

pours a thick black with a light brown creamy head and lacing. dark chocolate dominates the nose with some coffee and dark fruit underneath. taste follows suit, like drinking a dark chocolate bar. sweet chocolatey malts through and through. somehow this manages not to be cloying despite clearly being on the malty/sweet end of the spectrum. some roastiness and underlying hop bitterness bring balance. no alcohol noted even at 11%. carbonation struggles through just a bit. full-bodied, lingering semisweet chocolate finish. has that chocolate mouthfeel even as it makes it's way down. surprisingly drinkable.
have also had this via bombers and on-tap, and am liking this more and more. insert every positive descriptor for chocolate, chocolate, chocolate. alcohol is very well hidden. not overly viscous even at this abv which i also like.
update: i just love this stuff more every time, kind of like the movie office space, it really grows on me. crazy good shit. every time i have it, i can't stop drinking it, even though the abv is dangerously high for me.
drinkability lowered just a bit due to the fact that almost every time i drink this stuff, i end up peeing somewhere random in the middle of the night.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle, this beer pours black with a finger-thick eggshell head that settles very quickly. The aroma is pure chocolate, with a hint of coffee and some toast. The taste is sweet, almost cloying. Bittersweet chocolate? Tastes a bit more like Hershey's here. Other flavors given off are coffee, bread, and some fruity hops. This beer is thick, sweet, and is almost over the top. Definitely worth a try, but I wouldn't say more than once, unless you are serving it with dessert.

Very nice desert beer- deep dark color, a small head, but the AROMA! Tootsie Roll hits you as soon as it is opened. Good taste of chocolate with a surprisingly thin body, just a hint of roast ( or maybe dark chocolate ?) at the finish. Best as an after-dinner drink, as I found that unlike many other stouts, it doesn't go with a rich chocolate cake at desert, seems to be not compatible there.

WOW!! The first whiff of this brew is like a tootsie roll brownie. The color is just as black. No light getting thru here. From the aroma you expect a very sicky sweet beer, but its not. It does have a great chocolate/coffee flavor, but its mellowed out by the malts. This is what a after dinner beer should be. Silky mouthfeel with a nice warmth from the alchohol. Not one to session at 11 ABV, but a great beer to enjoy slowly.

Ah, my old friends at Southern Tier. You do nothing halfway. The Pumking was a nobleman of unmatched power, your Creme Brulee was the creme de la creme of dessert beers, and your Unearthly is truly that.

As I gaze at this, your creation, another of these massive things as you do nothing halfway, I know I am in for it, in for the real treat. It's a pure, shimmering, night-dark brown and a roasty tan floating for a few moments, but appearance is really of such little consequence. Appearance is a byproduct, a necessity, a qualification, a check-mark. What I'm interested in is the soul.
So it comes out, the tootsie roll, the fine layers of milk chocolate as on the commercials, the wave after wave after wave after wave and it seems to solidify as you watch, this must be what the factories smell like. I want to ride on the river, to scoop my hands in and have a sample, to be taken in and immersed.
And then the flavour, of course, much the same... A chocolate milkshake on a warm day, a hot cocoa on a freezing night, and gentlemen this creation is exceptional, more than that. Just the slightest husky, grainy, breadiness in the end that reminds you that this is still a beer and not a funneling from Wonka's secret vats, though it couldn't be much different...
Thick and creamy, exactly as it should be, an ale of unmatched proportions. This is what you were really dreaming of in childhood, you just didn't know it yet. Devil's food cake, this. Tempting, unhurried, sensuous, silky, lovely, it wraps your mind and heart up in the imaginations of what it would be like if there truly was a chocolate river, if there truly was a possibility of a golden ticket, if we weren't so jaded and stodgy and still believed in creative possibility, in eccentric madmen that craft elemental, carnal, yet filial, jovial and, most of all, glorious concoctions as they dream in their bright and colourful hallways of all ways of creating the most innocent, the most delectable, the most childlike and sensible beer possible.

It's simply grand.

I always smell the beer while it's still inside the bottle as soon as I crack it, you can get a concentrated, condensed version of the aroma before it's released into the air. WOW. Darkest of brown body, virtually black but not quite, pours like a thick Stout. Dark brown head isn't that big even when the pour got viscous, which I like. This beer won't let somebody ruin it. The nose is all Whoppers, that is...milk chocolate malt balls. Other aromas you might pull would be a fresh chocolate malt and maybe a milkshake. Can't see any smell though really without the malt (from maltballs) being thrown in. Very chocolaty beer, the chocolatiest. I've read in the threads where people were overwhelmed by this "desert" beer. Not so with me, I could drink this often. Mouthfeel is thick and under-carbonated, close to just right but it could be thicker. Slight metallic note in the taste threw it off a point. Very slight but noticeable. I'd like another one please.

Pours a clear but very dark brown with light amber and ruby highlights. The is very little head to speak of but a bold chocolate aroma rises out of the glass. Very unique sweet aroma, reminds me of fresh warm brownies. The taste is just as sweet and chocolatey with a similar fresh baked taste. The body is mild and lighter than I would like but drinkable. The finish is very gradual and the vinous characteristics from the higher alcohol content comes out at the end.

22oz bomber. I've enjoyed this many times, now it's finally time to rate it!

Dark black with a thin brown head that quickly dissipates. Looks like a chocolate cloud in the night sky.

Smell is really unique. This is all about the chocolate - sweet chocolate, bitter Belgian chocolate, cocoa powder, minor hops and yeast.

Taste is more of the same. Chocolate with a mild bitterness. No roast. Bit of yeast at the end which was slightly unpleasant until this beer "opened up". I'm seriously waiting for the oompah loompahs to come out and sing a song. This "beer" is clearly made from the stuff in the chocolate river. Hopefully this isn't the batch that Agustus fell into.

Mouthfeel is great. Thick, not syrupy.

A heavy duty beer that is certainly accessible. The lack of RIS like roast and the multi-faceted chocolate profile makes this a winner and a great "bridge" beer. Nice one, ST.

Poured from a 22 ounce bottle without a freshness date into a shaker pint glass, split with my wife.

Beer is dark brown to black and forms a medium head of small bubbles / tan to brown bubbles. Head falls away leaving some lacing on the glass.

This beer smells like brownies. Sweet cocoa, like a chocolate bar. Interesting how much it smells like chocolate. There is a hint of roast if you smell long enough. I'm excited to see if this will carry-through to the flavor.

Beer is medium bodied and sweet up front. There is some late bitterness and roast but its not like coffee. Relatively smooth, it does taste a lot like chocolate. Well done Southern Tier. Drinkability is good and the mouthfeel is nice. Second taste, there's a slight heat to the whole thing. Overall its a very good beer. I'd drink it again.

Pours pitch black with just a bit of redish brown around the edges with a tan head. I take a whiff and BAM! Tootsie Roll. That is the image that pops up in my mind. You can definitely smell the chocolate, and some chalkiness from the yeast. Really not getting much roastyness, though it may be masked by all the Tootsie Roll aroma. The taste is as advertised. Loads of bittersweet chocolate cascade down upon my taste buds. Also, chalky English style yeast, malt sweetness and a touch of roastyness. Alcohol is pretty much completely hidden by the other flavors. I find the aftertaste to be a little bit unpleasant, and the finish is quite sticky. Fairly full bodied and not the most drinkable beer to be certain. I would have to say that while it is tasty, I find the chocolate a bit much, and really wish it came in smaller bottles. However, there is no doubt that this is a well made beer that accomplished what the brewers were trying to do.

Pours a rich, deep, near black with a tiny rings of brownish head. Smell is of melted, bitter and semi sweet chocolate. Taste is of melted bitter and semi sweet chocolate. Its a freakin' melted candy bar! Rich, smooth, creamy, bittersweet - maybe a tad thinner than what i hoped for. Mmmm. Southern Tier really nails these imperial series beers.

I started off the night with one and it filled me up before my meal arrived, but i had to have another for dessert! Went back to a 3rd at the end of the night. Gimme some mo!

Tastes fantastic when blended with a small bit of their Creme Brulee.
