4.57/5  rDev +7.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours jet black with copper highlights when in the light. Frothy tan head that fades quickly to a ring around the body with a little pool in the middle. This finally fades towards the end of the beer leaving little remnants of lacing behind.

I've never smelled anything so chocolatey that wasn't pure chocolate. Straight-up bittersweet chocolate. A little one-dimensional, but it hits the mark considering the name of this beer.

I was expecting a more one-dimensional flavor judging by the smell, but I was surprised by the complex flavor. Dark chocolate still dominates, but there's roasty bitterness, coffee, bright fruits flavors, bitter and citrus hops. The other flavors die down as it warms and chocolate takes over, but there's still a complex presence even as I'm getting to the bottom of the bottle.

The mouthfeel is voluptuous and thick but a decent amount of carbonation delivers the citrusy flavors on top the thick chocolatey body. The finish is long and sticky with most chocolate, but bright fruit and citrus still cling to the sides of my tongue.

The bottle is labeled at 9% ABV, but I'm guessing they fussed with the recipe and didn't change the label? I could see how this could be either 9 or 11...it's thick and syrupy, but not boozy. It's awesome, but it's a sipper.

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

Pours a very dark brown, nearly black in color but has some lighter brown and red hues coming through around the edges. Creamy tan head forms on top of this beer less than a finger strong and receeds to just a thin film with a fair amount of lacing. Nose does not disappoint and fully lives up to the name. Aroma is all chocolate... it is like a sweet milk chocolate that is reminiscent of Hershey's chocolate syrup. Taste is a mildly sweet chocolate upfront that turns to bitter chocolate with a bit of a burnt grain character through the body blended with hop bitterness and alcohol in the finish. Lingering taste of bitter chocolate is left in the mouth from a combination of the dark grain and hops. Moderately high carbonation with a medium to heavy feel. Initially this beer masked the alcohol quite well but as it comes up to temperature it really comes through in the finish of the taste. Overally quite good.

Bottle.

Pours one shade away from black with a one-finger light brown head. The head recedes into a thin layer on top leaving solid lacing.

Smells of loads upon loads of milk chocolate, reminescent of Hershey's syrup. Roasted malt aromas struggle to make their way out but hardly manage to do so.

Tastes better balanced than it smells. Mild roasted malt and robust chocolate flavors hit the tastebuds at about the same time. Midway through the sip leafy hop flavors briefly make an appearance but fade into the background before a mildly bitter ending that leaves a lot of chocolate flavors lingering on the palate.

Mouthfeel is very good. It's got a very nice thickness with grainy carbonation.

Drinkability is good. I finished my glass without a problem and could have another.

Overall this is unquestionably the beer heaviest on chocolate that I've had. That being said I've come to realize that I prefer my big stouts with a bit more roasted character. Still, this is worth a shot for anyone and especially those with a big sweet tooth.

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

A- Pours dark brown, almost black, with no light coming through. there is a nice rich dark tan head that sticks to the side of the glass and leaves some spotty lacing as the bear is drank. very good looking beer.

S- WOW is all i have to say. the chocolate that pours of this thing would make u think ur drinking chocolate milk. It smells so tasty and has the best chocolate aroma i've every smelt on a chocolate stout. deff A+. there's is some backing of roasted malt but the chocolate is what comes through the most.

T- This beer is so rich in chocolate flavor. There is almost nothing else until the finish when u get some bitterness from the hops they use. very good flavor on this beer. ultra smooth.

M/D- good mouthfeel. coats ur palate very well. medium-heavy bodied. good long finish on this beer. chocolate lingers for a while after swallowing. very smooth for an 11% ABV beer.

If this beer is anything like it's blackwater series brother Creme Brulee, it would be absolutely amazing after a year of cellaring. If anyone has a couple extras throw em in ur basement and forget about them for a year.

I bought this at a local Canals while I was searching for some new DogFish Head. I've always wanted to try the series of these and picked this as my first. Boy am I happy.

I poured this into a pint glass, please don't hurt me! No snifters around, but this beer looks beautiful. The color is black, just like an imperial stout should be. The head is a tan, not very thick, but it lingers on the side of the glass as I drink more and more. As I said, this is a beautiful looking beer.

The smell is delicious to say the least, a rather thick chocolate scent with a slight smell of espresso. The taste did not disappoint. It has a chocolate foretaste, but the reminiscent slightly hoppy imperial stout after taste. It's by no means unbalanced though, the flavors meld together beautifully. It is very smooth going down and feels nice in the mouth, not thick like I would expect.

This is one of the more drinkable beers I've ever had, especially at 11%. Highly recommended.

Had on tap at the Sunset Grille in Brighton MA.

Appearance: Squid ink like in texture and appearance as it swirls and sticks to the glass. Pitch black and syrupy with a small to medium head that leaves a collar. This beer has legs as it hits the glass.

Smell: Smells like herseys chocolate syrup to a T. Huge melted chocolate aroma rather than cocoa. Sweet but balanced aromas of chocolate, espresso and cappachino come to mind.

Taste: Overly sweet for my liking but balanced throughout. Huge kick of melted chocolate and bitter espresso on the back end. If the abv werent hidden so well i would drop this a whole point just because its a bit overly sweet.

Mouthfeel: Cloying and sticky. Doesnt hit the palate quite as thick as it looks, but its really just a dessert beer and i cant see anyone drinking a whole bomber of this stuff.

Drinkability: This would be a great dessert beer in a 6oz sample but otherwise its too over the top for me. I like how strong the chocolat flavor is and how it lives up to its name, but i cant drink more than 12oz of this stuff in a whole night.

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

This poured a nearly opaque pitch black, with a little bit of tan head. It smelled like milk chocolate, cocoa powder, dark chocolate, and a bit of confectioner's sugar and cream. It tasted very similar with tons of sweet milk chocolate and cocoa powder, and some dark chocolate, confectioner's sugar, and Belgian yeast. It was thick with some carbonation, and had a sweet aftertaste. Overall this was a super sweet and chocolaty beer. There wasn't any complexity outside of that, and the sweetness was almost overwhelming and seemed somewhat artificial. So this definitely isn't for everyone. However, I still enjoyed it thoroughly. It had great body, and hid the alcohol nicely, so it was quite easy to drink. It could possibly become even smoother with some age, but I still liked it fresh. This must be the standard for chocolate stouts.

3.88/5  rDev -8.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: Very dark brown. Almost pitch black.

S: Smells just like chocolate. It's got elements of milk chocolate, cocoa powder, and chocolate syrup.

T: Relatively sweet on the initial taste and mid-mouth. However, there's a bit of bitterness (both coffee and cocoa powder) in the aftertaste. Very chocolatey overall, but not as "rich" as I'd imagined it would be or had heard it was. Unfortunately, it did also taste a bit artificial, particularly in the sweetness. Almost like aspartame at points.

M: Probably the biggest strength of any of the beers I've tried from the Southern Tier Blackwater series is their mouthfeel. Choklat is no exception. Very nice texture, good thickness, and no real negatives.

D: Good drinkability overall. Decent flavor, very good texture, and well-masked ABV.

4.44/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: jet black, looks viscous in the glass, some white head that goes away quickly

S: onslaught of rich and sweet chocolate. The chocolate is dominating on the nose and I am not picking up a whole lot in the way of a base beer, perhaps it is because the added chocolate marries so well with the rest of the flavors

T: just like the nose, a huge rich and sweet taste of fine and delicate chocolate. There is some heat on the end from the alcohol but it pairs nicely with the chocolate.

MF: silky and smooth, somewhat chewy texture, low carbonation

D: wow... this is a dessert beer if I've ever tried one. Simply delicious. I don't think there is another beer that more successfully pairs chocolate with beer. But @ 11% along with the super rich chocolate, this can only be enjoyed in small quantities

4.03/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours heavy. It's deep dark brown to black with light only getting through at the extreme edges. The tan color head dissipates to a ring that doesn't leave any lacing.

S: You have to let this one warm up otherwise you will miss it. Well, you will miss the fullness. Chocolate. The aroma is a double barrel shotgun of chocolate that fires off both barrels. I keep searching for something else but it is just chocolate. And one would think that the flavor would be way too sweet and over the top. Well...

T: Initially the smell made me thing I was going to be drinking a chocolate bar dipped in Hershey's sauce. Not really. Somehow the sweetness is balanced. Don't get me wrong, the flavor is strong and in your face but it isn't over the top and sickeningly sweet.

M: Medium to heavy body, light carbonation, a little oily, a warming alcohol feel (not surprising, this being an imperial).

D: Well, I would call this one a "one per session" but maybe it is a "one session per" instead. Weighing in at 11% ABV (according to the bottle) this is one that I would want to share amongst friends instead of drinking the whole thing myself (which is what I did tonight). A very enjoyable beer but maybe one that I would save for after dinner.

Served in a Dogfish Head snifter.

Pours a straight obsidian with highlights of very dark ruby-brown struggling to break through the tar. A minor bit of oatmeal serves as the head, which dissipates into a foamy halo of breakfast grains. The smell strikes hard with a chocolate/cocoa 1-2, finishing with an oaty jab, just to toy with you, to draw you in for more. The haymaker comes in the taste, which consists of cocoa, oats, dark malts, and a finishing rabbit-punch of hoppy bitterness. The fight choreography at this point has been complex, mixed, generally effective, but not a complete knockout; we're left dizzied, anxiou for what may come next. Luckily, the body is nicely in the medium range, allowing the refs to call the fight before everything goes south. In all, yes, we lose, but we are not disgraced, allowing us to be anxious to schedule a rematch soon.

Poured from a bomber into a snifter:

Appearance and Smell:Poured a nice thick dark chocolate color. With a very minimal head which disappeared quickly. You'd think it was chocolate syrup sitting in a glass if you didn't give it a swirl. Smelled of rich choclate syrup with a small hint of the abv warmth on the nose, a little beyond inviting. There was a bit of caramel malt presence but primarily just sweet chocolate syrup aroma dominates.

Taste and Mouthfeel:Tastes of thick extremely rich and delicious genuine chocolate. Not just a hint of chocolate but a stout with a few chocolate bars crammed into the brew. There was a definite caramel malt presence in the taste and feel of this. It helped keep it from being to simple of a brew and kept it delicious all the way through. This was a pretty full bodied brew as expected, and lacking bitterness or much carbonation which fit the brew nicely.

Drinkability:Far too drinkable. I'll definitely be picking this up again for such an occasion as Valentine's day. Quite the treat.

Shared with schen9303. Poured from a 22oz. bottle (09 vintage) into a Brooklyn Brewery snifter.

A: Standard pour yields a upward cascading, semi-fine, light chocolate, 1 finger head with decent retention. Beer is opaque black but doesn't strike me as particularly thick. Carbonation seems ample but is hidden within the darkness. Lacing is present but patchy and sticks close to the head that creates it.

S: The sweetest stout that I ever did smell. Strong milk chocolate, caramel, toffee, a hint of toasted malts, a sprinkle of licquorice, and a dose of molasses. No coffee or dark fruit to be found though.

T: As the nose eludes, heavy on them milk chocolate. I can tell this beer is gonna be very polarizing from the beginning. Offensively sweet like an alcoholic chocolate milk shake. Molasses is present to further add to the sugary profile. Slightly boozy towards the finish with a burnt malt finish that lingers just a bit longer than expected. No bitterness either hops or coffee at all. Syrupy sweet all the way.

M: Feel is a bit dissapointing here. No doubt full bodied but also highly carbonated and this prevents it from being as smooth as I want it even when it warms. Sticky aftertaste with a finish that coats my lips in sugar but not to the point that the taste would lead me to believe. Carbonation also make this one a bit harder to get down... milkshakes are supposed to be pretty smooth after all.

D: I remember liking this a lot more at the beginning of my beer journey... but I guess palates change... or maybe I just expected too much because of those fond memories. Nevertheless, an enjoyable brew though I can't see how anyone can be on the fence about this one. You either love it or you hate it.

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

This beer pours black and opaque from a short distance, but when held in the light you can see some ruby hued edges. There is a one inch light brown head that forms on the pour and lingers with great retention leaving a nice collar of lace behind.

The nose is fine. There is a definitely dose of sweet chocolate with not much else going on.

The taste is ok. Again, there's some sweet chocolate, but there is also a light touch of bitterness. I'm actually hugely disappointed. I've been trying to track down this beer for 2 years now and I'm mostly disappointed.

The mouthfeel is full bodied with very light fine bubbled carbonation.

Drinkability is moderate to low. The ABV is high but well incorporated which makes for easier drinking. However, the flavor profile is ok but a huge disappointment which doesn't encourage me to drink more.

A dark dark black, brownish head that disappears rather qucikly

S not surprising, chocolate, but smells really good

T same as above, tastes like a dark milk chocolate thats a bit bitter, but not overwhelmingly so. Imagine chocolate syrup in beer form, even though it is 11% alcohol you can not taste it

D it is nice, but there is no way I could drink an entire bomber. I think it would be a great beer to serve with desert, perhaps splitting a bottle 4 or 5 ways as a nice addition to the desert, something along the lines of dark chocolate with strawberries or a raspberry tart, but much more than 12oz was just too much.

A: Dark black with little to no head - like dark chocolate in color; wonderful lacing.

On Tap at Pepperwood Grille, Greensburg PA.

Appearance: Served in Snifter. Dark cola, with little head. Kinda flat looking.

Smell: heavy dose of bakers cocoa and dark chocolates.

Taste: Like high end chocolate, like Ghirardelli's. Hershey chocolate comes to mind as well but way much better tasting than waxy, cheap Hershey chocolates. Semi-sweet. Goes down pretty smooth and not at all cloying. Low carbonation (attests for the flat looking head). ABV is not detected at all but did feel it kick in after I finished my glass. Could I have another? Definitely! Could have 2 more, but may not get up after that.

Overall: one of the few Stouts advertised as Chocolate and this lives up to its name. Hands down best Chocolate RIS I ever had.

A - The Southern Tier Choklat pours into a goblet as dark as a Coke, impervious to light; little to no carbonation.

S - Chocolate malt, caramel, Tootsie Roll! Milky Way! Wow!

T - Rich, rich, rich roasted malts, chocolate malts, incredibly balanced with delicious, warming alcohol flavors.

M - Heavy, low level effervescence, oils.

D - Extremely, dangerously drinkable brew. This beer hides the 9.1% abv very well. Simply a delicious offering by Southern Tier ... this is like serving a "brandy" dessert in a beer goblet. Superb.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured into a La Fin du Monde tulip completely opaque with less than a finger of tan head. Smell of milk chocolate is practically jumping out of the glass all the while. Smelling further, I get notes of rum and marshmallow, but it smells overwhelmingly chocolatey, which is fine with me. Damn, this smells good.

Big roasty malts compete with all that chocolate on the palate for quite a while, with nondescriptly bitter hops and a little alcohol warmth bringing up the rear. While the chocolate on the nose smells sweet and milky, in the mouth it's an equal mix of bitter and sweet, which is just awesome. Very well balanced, and you could drink it until the 11% abv says otherwise. Mouthfeel is surprisingly thin, which is a shame.

Finally a quality (and relatively reasonably priced) US-brewed Imperial Stout makes it to our part of the world. Having sampled the likes of Old Rasputin, Speedway, Older Viscosity and The Abyss while in the US recently, this is riiiight up there with those, and any beer I can think of, really.

Well, I blinked & missed this brew when it slipped through town in 2009, so when I happened upon a bottle a couple weeks ago I figured I need to avoid a repeat. Fool me once & all that.

Pours a hard, tarry black. Vicious pour leaves a nice tan head. Smell is luscious, chocolate, real chocolate, not powdered or artificial or Hershey's Kiss chocolate.

Choklat is the nuclear fission of chocolate beers. Chocolate comes oozing out of its pours & into my mouth, held back only by the additional of malts whose standard sweetness is swept away in the dark choco flood. Specks of hop bitterness flicker in & out of the end-mix as well, & thank you to them for keeping the cloy of a standard brew of this ilk at bay.

Beautifully balanced & an excellent beer. This could easily have gone the other way - I can think of one Southern Tier brew that did! - but the delicate interaction of malt, hop, & chocolate strikes just the right note of decadent moderation. Beautiful.

Aggressive pour into tulip...

A: Pours a thick chocolate black body with a two finger dark tan head that is thick and creamy. Very viscous...

S: Unbelievable...this smells like a liquid bittersweet chocolate bar! Heavy heavy chocolate/cocao aroma with hints of molasses and a faint booziness.

T: Taste follows the nose perfectly, if you close your eyes you are drinking liquid chocolate! A faint hint of caramel, molasses and their are some hops present in the finish which I am grateful for as this would be too cloying otherwise. A little bit of booze mid-palate as well. This beer has one of the most massive flavor profiles I have tasted! A bit one note on the chocolate but thats what this is supposed to taste like...

M: Incredibly velvety smooth with just a bit of carbonation to help things liven up a bit...a little more creaminess would have helped this beer out...

D: Not so drinkable at 11% especially with the sweetness. But i'm not looking to gulp this one down either. Overall, fantastic beer, a little too sweet for my preference, but would be amazing in a beer float, or for someone who LOVES chocolate!

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.

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.
