4.53/5  rDev +6.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

22 oz. bottle purchased at Cleveland Park Wine & Liquors in NW D.C., 2013 vintage (couldn't find a bottling date), poured into my NEBCO Gandhi-Bot snifter glass, drank 12/20/13 over an hour

A: 3/3 - pitch black, no clarity, poured with a creamy mahogany head that settled into a subtle glass lacing with some mild froth on top. moderate alcohol legs, low-to-moderate carbonation

S: 11/12 - as advertised, rich Belgian milk chocolate, marshmellow and some coffee notes, but the star of the show is certainly chocolate

T: 18/20 - on the anterior tongue, there's a soft bitterness supplied by the chocolate and roasted malts; in the middle of the mouth, there's a subtle creaminess with a chocolate-caramel sweetness; albeit there is some alcohol, this certainly doesn't taste like a 10% ABV beer, and the mild aftertaste makes this dangerously drinkable

M: 4/5 - creamy but thinner than I expected in a big American stout; again, moderate alcohol body and subtly inviting aftertaste

O: 9/10 - I have heard/read the hype about this beer as one of the best chocolate stouts, and I certainly had high expectations, which this beer didn't fail to satisfy; the chocolate aroma/flavor is intense and the only beer that I think approaches its chocolate intensity is Rogue's Double Chocolate Stout (and based on my recollection, these two beers are remarkably similar); in sum, this is one of the best dessert beers that I've tried and recommended to any big stout and chocolate lovers

TOTAL = 45/50

I was really excited when I stumbled across this beer at my local store and read the great reviews on BA about it. I picked up a 22 oz bomber and chilled it to enjoy tonight. Within a few seconds of opening this bottle, the smell of sweet milk chocolate and alcohol filled the air. It poured deep dark brown with a thick tan head that dissipated within 2-3 minutes. The first sip was decent, big milk chocolate flavor and little alcohol presence, but I'm not a milk chocolate fan and I knew it was going to be too sweet for my liking. As the beer got warmer it became horrible. The taste and smell of alcohol became overwhelming and the chocolate flavor became super strong. I would liken the flavor of this beer to someone melting a Hershey bar in a glass of rubbing alcohol. Back to my Founders breakfast stout now...

Bottled: 11/26/12
Drank: 12/17/13

A - Basically pitch black. Poured no head, but left a thin ring around the surface. Light lacing and nice alcohol legs.
S- Big, rich chocolate. Decadent. Rich caramel, slight tropical and dark fruits when you really dig in.
T- Rich chocolate up front followed by caramel, roasted malts, and light licorice from the booze. Finish is roasty, a touch spicy, and bitter chocolate. Nicely crafted and complex.
M- Medium body. Creamy on the tongue. Very drying with a bitter aftertaste.
O- This was a good beer. I enjoyed the experience, but I could only drink it occasionally. The dryness and bitterness at the end was a touch overwhelming at times; however, overall, this was a nicely crafted beer with a ton of flavor and nice dynamics. I give it an A.

4/5  rDev -6.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours a deep dark brown and has some lighter brown hues at the edges of the glass. Scant head of chocolate colored foam that fell fast but leaves great legs to look at as you drink. Nose is every shade of chocolate. Chocolate, fudge, chocolate syrup, chocolate brownies, cocoa nibs, sweet and bitter chocolate. The roast takes a back seat in the nose but does give up a faint hint of espresso. There's a bit of hop character on the nose and as this warms you will notice a berry like fruit in the form of a subtle lightness.

Taste is an explosion of chocolate. Rich belgian style chocolate. The roast has a big toasted character and comes forward as much as it can but seems drowned out by all the chocolate. It's deep and willful though and in the end it shows a nice grain with a touch of blackness and bitter of it's own. The roast is endless and is trying to reach infinity with the endless chocolate. The mouthfeel is silky, creamy and smooth. There is no alcohol on the nose and only a enough on the palate to make it delightfully boozy and warming. The carbonation is perfection and tickles the palate. This beer is sweet. It develops a bit of caramel as it warms and to the delight of the palate a duo of chinook and williamette hops lend a graceful bitter to the long and satisfying finish.

Southern Tier has gone crazy for chocolate and has made a stout that will satisfy your every fantasy about chocolate.

Pours black. Two fingers tan head with nice retention.

Aroma of bitter bakers chocolate. Sugary sweetness on the nose as well.

Taste is bittersweet chocolate, malt and sugary sweetness. Slight roastiness.

Medium mouthfeel and carb.

Quite a nice beer. Big on the sweetness but doesn't overpower. A great value at under 8

Poured from a 650 ml bottle into a snifter.

A: Black. Pours a 1 finger, bubbly, brown head. Settles pretty quickly leaving a smattering of bubbly carbonation on the surface. Spotty, yet persistent lacing.

S: A little roasted malt grains, but prominent amount of dark chocolate.

T: Dark bittersweet chocolate, balanced with a bit of pungent peat.

M: Thick and hearty. Pungent finish lingers on the palate. High alcohol is apparent, although not boozy.

D: Sip and savor.

Atmosphere is really nice. Fair head, and persistent light lacing. Chocolate aspect is very pronounced, some roasty grain notes. Bittersweet dark chocolate rules the day, there is a bit of pungency to cut the sweetness. Overall, this is a really good quaff.

This is a beer I have had once b4 reviewing, so I've had limited experience with , but one I will never forget. 22oz bomber from the local beer store in Oregon. 8.99 - very nice price

Appearance is dark black with 1 finger of foam receding to almost nothing, just a spot of bubbles and slight ring. Nice color though, I like my imp stouts jet black.

Smell is amazing! the most chocolate forward smell you can ever experience.
Luscious cocoa and bitter chocolate, dark malt, more chocolate. Did I say cocoa? Oh yeah, lol BIG chocolate, as in hersheys bar or syrup. A hint of cordial cherry, sweetness, just a dessert of a beer.

Taste is the same, HUGE chocolate flavors, sweet, semi sweet, bitter, all hit at the front, middle, and aftertaste of this beer. Very dominating and appetizing to a chocolate lover. Some dark malt lingers around to round out the imperial stout experience. I love it, 5.

Mouthfeel is slightly slick and low carbonation, but its just fine according to my taste buds which are screaming in joy from the flavor.

Overall this is a must try for anyone a fan of chocolate, wine drinkers, hard alc drinkers, anyone who might find this enjoyable should give it a go, its like youngs double chocolate stout on steroids.

look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from bottle into a snifter

Appearance – The beer pours a nearly pitch black color with a one finger of creamy-brown colored head. The head fades relatively quickly leaving a foam surface on the top of the brew and a bit of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – With a name like Choklat would suggest, the aroma is super heavy of well… chocolate. The chocolate aroma is really quite delicious and sweet. It has a milk chocolate like smell mixed with some vanilla and a little bit of caramel. Along with the big sweet chocolate smell, there is some roasted malt and lighter coffee smells as well as just a bit of an alcohol booziness.

Taste – The taste begins with a delicious and smooth milk chocolate flavor mixed with vanilla and brown sugar. Some caramel is there as well, with it fading as the taste advances. While the caramel fades more milky and creamy sweetness comes to the tongue keeping the beer very sweet and chocolaty overall. More toward the middle, some lighter coffee flavors start coming to the tongue as well as a roasted malt flavor joining the taste as well. The coffee grows in intensity and is joined by some earthy and woody like flavors. In the end, the lighter bitterness added from the earthy, woody, and coffee flavors mix and balance rather nicely with the sweeter milk chocolate tastes, leaving a very satisfying and rather creamy and smooth sweeter chocolate flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is medium in thickness and creaminess for a beer of 10 % abv. with a carbonation the in on the average side. While both are decent for the style and flavors I would have liked to see a creamier body and a lower carbonation as both would have really allowed all those delicious chocolate flavors to coat the mouth in all the intense flavors.

Overall –The beer is like a sweet milk chocolate bar made into a beer and balanced out with a bit of bittering flavors. This one was super delicious and an amazing desert beer.

(Bottle date November, 2012).

The beer comes in a pitch black color with a beautiful mocha/light brown head. A gorgeous beer.

The aroma is of cocoa powder, a sweet chocolate, and a milkiness, even a black cherry fruit flavor.

The flavor follows in the front with a pop of dark fruit (dried plums, dark raisin) and then strongly with lots of bittersweet chocolate, almost like a dark hot cocoa and vanilla. It then moves onto this roasted malt, espresso bean, coffee bitterness, molasses, on the end, maybe even hoppiness. The bitterness compliments the beer quite well. A bit of alcohol bite in the end.

The beer has a luscious mouthfeel and leaves a bit of a stickiness on your lips.

This beer has a good balance between its sweetness and the bitterness on the end. A great dessert beer and one of the best chocolate beers around.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Bottled on 11/11/13. 22oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours black with not much light getting though; small khaki head with nice retention and decent lacing. The aromas are pretty roasty. Lots of cocoa malts. Hints of black coffee and some vanilla bean. Subtle hints of almond. The flavors are extremely rich and robust. You get a huge blast of every type of chocolate under the sun. Lots of dark chocolate giving it a roasty bitterness. Lots of milk chocolate giving it a creamy sweetness. More hints of expresso. I'm picking up more subtle hints of almonds. Finishes bitter with a nuttiness to it; there's a subtle warmth. Mouthfeel is full-bodied; smooth with active carbonation. Alcohol goes unnoticed. This is a nice beer to sip on and let warm up. The flavors have alot going on.

This has always been a great example of what Southern Tier is all about. The flavors are much more intense than the nose indicates. It's somewhat unique for the style. They named this one appropriately. It's always an experience. Very enjoyable. Recommended.

Poured a jet black with a beautiful tan head full of thick bubbles that cling to your lips like a chocolate milk shake.

The smell is dominated by chocolate, which is a good thing! Deep dark cacao aroma, like some one shaved a block of baking chocolate right into the beer.

Big dark chocolate flavors upfront. Sweet condensed milk, milk chocolate, espresso, and liquorice notes. Chocolate and roasted malt back bone with a nice hop finish that balances out all the sweet notes.

Mouthfeel is luxurious. Velvety, and rich. Not too sure this isn't a chocolate malt in disguise.

Overall, an excellent beer. ST managed to really pull off amazingly deep chocolate flavors without the sweetness becoming too cloying or the chocolate tasting artificial. Grab one or five if you can, it's worth it!

I poured Choklat into my snifter. Haha, I like the sound of that. Cellar temperature. I was super-excited to find this stuff.

The head looks like two fingers of mocha foam. Creamy, frothy, and yummy-looking. The body? This is one of those "black as night" beers. Truly.

Now for the aroma... cocoa, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, fudge, chocolate milkshake, freshly-baked chocolate cookies, brownies... I could go on.It's pretty much every awesome chocolate scent that exists. Underneath the ubiquitous amalgamation of delicious chocolate things, I think I might smell a little vanilla and raisins. It is a joy and a privilege to sit here and sniff a snifter-full of this supremely sniffable stout.

The flavor does NOT disappoint. Thoroughly chocolaty in about as many ways as the aroma is. Early on, it tastes like a malty chocolate milkshake, and as the flavor unfolds into the finish, all the fantastic darker chocolate flavors come out. It kind of proceeds from milk chocolate, to semi-sweet chocolate, to bittersweet chocolate, and then finally to a nice bit of bitter and earthy unsweetened chocolate in the aftertaste. It's kind of like eating chocolate chips of all these varieties, one after the other in a progression that increases in chocolate purity. So the longer I wait between sips, the more it gets less sweet and malty, and more bitter and earthy. Have I said the word "chocolate" enough to describe what drinking this is like? Anyway, hops and yeast are just present enough to remind me that this is still indeed a beer, and not a chocolate dessert... or, I should say, not JUST a chocolate dessert. A rich, intense, balanced, smooth, and scrumptiously chocolaty flavor.

It kind of has the consistency of thick hot cocoa, and it's also kind of syrupy. Carbonation is muted and mellow.

A chocolate craving CAN be satisfied by baking a tray of brownies... or one could just drink one of these.

22oz bottle split between two large snifters. 282 12 A1P 1447. Boo to Southern Tier for difficult to find and read bottle codes. It was on the bottom, and I had to back light it to notice.

Pours black, no head. No visible carbonation. Looks pretty normal for an imperial stout, which looks tasty. Smell is super chocolatey. Little bit of coffee, little black licorice, a little roasty. And some chocolate.

Taste is sweet (Southern Tier), chocolate, chocolate, roasted coffee, chocolate, more roasty flavors. For once, Southern Tier balanced over-the-top sweetness with an appropriate level of bitterness -- roastiness. It's good.

Mouthfeel is thick with just a hint of grittiness. Overall, this is a very good beer.

Choklat pours out nearly black with a small tan head. Alcohol legs run along the glass with larger bubbles forming on the outskirts of the head.

Smell is chocolate, a bit of chocolate, then some chocolate. Honestly though, deep cocoa aromas run wild in the aroma but they remain one dimensional. A sweetness prevails at first, then deeper dark, malty aromas fold in.

Taste is a bit more balanced with some roasted bitterness to compliment dark chocolate flavor.

The mix of sweet flavors and medium body make this beer dangerously drinkable.

Overall, a good Imperial Stout but not one I would try again. Good for dessert.

Bomber from Loews Foods 1 pt 6 fl oz

A. - jet black, pours with a small tan head that moves to nothing, no lace at all.

S - chocolate, some dark fruit, mild hops, and more chocolate.

T - similar to the smell, with some faint booze, and some almond/nuts on the finish. Vanilla notes.

M - creamy. Low carbonation.

O - goes down too fast for 10%. Little early in the season for this, but I can see this as a good dessert beer to share as things get colder. As far as chocolate stouts go, this is up there with Youngs.

22oz bottle poured into a large snifter. Date of bottling 11/28/11 puts this at almost two years old.

A: Pitch black on the pour. Sandy brown head sputters out after a short moment, but can be revived by agitating the glass with a steady swirl. No real lacing to speak of, just a tiny spot here and there,

S: Loads of bittersweet chocolate, fudgey and chocolatey malts, dark chocolate truffles, and a slight oily hop scent. Perhaps some dark berry esters at the core. Very chocolate-forward and enticing.

T: A boatload of chocolate. Fudge, truffles, bittersweet dark chocolate, chocolate syrup. Slight mocha impression, hint of smoke. Berry esters come out briefly toward the middle. Roasted malts begin to come forward with some flavors of soot and char. Hops add bitterness and perhaps a hint of a 'green' taste. Barely a hint of alcohol. Finishes with a long and decadent syrupy and truffle chocolate taste.

M: Thick in body. Oily and chewy, slightly viscous and coating. Creamy. Low carbonation. Decadent again.

O: A wonderful dessert beer. It would do fine on its own, but when pairing one needs to go big. This is chocolate on top of chocolate, with a brawny body beneath. Cheesecake with lots of fruit and fruit sauce, I think. This is my favorite of the blackwater series to date, and it aged like a dream too.

A: Pours out a bit thinner than I was expecting, but looks a viscous black once it settles in the glass. A nice one finger mocha head settles down fairly quickly to a light ring around the surface.

S: Smells like I just stuck my head in a tub of Hersheys chocolate syrup. A rich, sweet milk chocolate smell with just a hint of bitterness to the back of it. Cocoa powder, chocolate cake and some oats. I swear I smell oats in here.

T: Opens on a darker, more bittersweet chocolate note than the smell would lead you to believe. Fades into velvety smooth milk chocolate, vanilla and Hersheys syrup in the middle. The finish pulls the sweetness back a bit and brings out some unsweetened baking chocolate, char, roasted malt and earthy hop resin. Texture is silky smooth and complements the sweetness really well.

Pitch black pour into snifter from 22oz bomber. Khaki head. Tinge of brown around the edges. Mouthfeel is full and slick. Aroma is loaded with chocolate and roasted malt. Heavy on chocolate smells here. Taste is equally loaded. This bottle I have no clue how old it is, but it's very smooth with absolutely zero hint of the 10%abv. This one is probably one of the best chocolate stouts i've had. Milk chocolate heavy throughout with a nice bitter dark chocolate in the finish to bring it all together. really quite fantastic.
