4.05/5  rDev -4.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 2

22 ounce bottle acquired in a trade with todd1, thanks for the opportunity to try this top 100 brew, split with girlfriend and her dad tonight, poured into an old Budweiser mug with the three frgos on it

A-Black and oily looking, a little thinner body than expected, 3/4 inch forthy tan head, stuck around for close to ten minutes, nice retention, some lacing at the beginning

S-Chocolate, both milk and dark, roasted sweet malts, noble hops, real cocoa, burned barley, cream, butter, cookies, and more chocolate

T-I was wondering if I was drinking a milkshake or a beer for the first few sips, well maybe that is an exaggeration but I am trying to emphasize how much milk chocolate was in this bad boy, started off with cocoa, sweet malt in the middle filled with candied sugar, almost some coffee flavor in the finish, dry from some hoppiness in the aftertaste as well, got sweeter and thinner as it warmed but went down even less easily, not balanced but I did not expect it to be, lots of chocolate and it was quite tasty but super thick and heavy, limiting how much you can drink

M-Sweet, chewy, and slightly dry mouthfeel, a little syrupy but not very full at the same time, carbonation level was decent, taste lingered a long time, chocolate gave a sweet sensation

D-Could not drink more than ten ounces of this stuff and could barely get my seven or eight down tonight, heavy on the stomach, sweet, alcohol is well hidden though, 11% could definitely get you though

Have not had many Southern Tier brews but this one was one of the better ones I have tasted, most chocolate I have ever tasted or smelled in a beer and yes it even beat out Dr. Dremo's donut stout, this could probably age for several years, would drink again, certainly recommended

Had this on 2011-01-14 at Al's of Hampden in Enola, PA

A - Extremely dark brown with just a little light creeping through at the top edge of the glass. Short tan head with little lacing.

S - One dimensional smell of chocolate but my, oh my, what an abundance of it.

T - A great big wollop of both dark and very sweet milk chocolate. There a bit of hop presence but the aftertaste morphs from very sweet to an astingent coffee biterness with lingering sweetness. This helps disguise the still-apparent high ABV of this tasty brew. I like this but it's almost over the top for syrupy, chocolate flavor.

M - Mouthfeel is heavy with light-medium carbonation. Very thick and creamy.

D - A very fine beer that isn't sessionable for me. One glass is enough since it is so striking in its flavor. I tried mixing it 1/2 and 1/2 with a Hacker Pschorr Hefe and I liked the result a little better. It's as if cutting it allowed more of the nuances of the Choklat to shine through.

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

Pitch black in color with a small, light khaki-colored head. The fine bubbles produce some sparse, splotchy lacing on my snifter. Big aroma of dark chocolate and cocoa powder, very befitting of the beer's name. Astringent roasted malt provides the underpinnings. Some slight floral and pine notes from American hops.

The flavor, while tasty, can't quite live up to the promise of the aroma. It starts sweet, but the sweetness is restrained by bitterness from roast and hops. Lots of dark chocolate, intertwined with astringent roasted malt. Some grassy Northwest hops show up on the finish. Mouthfeel is a bit thin for a high gravity stout, having a texture that's more akin to a porter. More heft would be appreciated. The carbonation holds up pretty well and is moderately soft.

A rich and flavorful offering from Southern Tier - one that's not cloying. The mouthfeel is a little lacking, but otherwise, Choklat is worthy of the respect it gets.

look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

650 ml.
Alc. 11.0% by Vol.
Served at 50 degrees in a Dogfish Head snifter
Stamped '227 A2 21:41' in ink near the bottom rim

Appearance - no light permeability except on the farthest reaches of the deep space blackness; tan head has short life; sparse lace; midway, its sets to a lifeless black ink in the glass; the abv can hand 1 excuse to the Vanity 101 professor here but that's good for .5

Smell - I considered going on a Bubba Gump shrimp ramble about the varieties of chocolate that I smell but I'll stick to chocolate syrup (early) and a bag of spent chocolate malts (very prominent later in the bottle); raisins; molasses; muted but credible, second-half dose of alcohol

Taste - here comes the big train; mirrors the nose with the addition of more of a bitter chocolate; hops try (and fail) to fight through grains and the alcohol -- which comes through late and hangs on for the aftertaste; hop shot rises in the aftertaste as well; with as much malt presence, its shocking that there's enough hops in the process to counter but they hold on admirably (but again, they lose); this one could benefit from cellar time

Mouthfeel - nice balance of carbonation and slickness with a deduction for some cutting alcohol; more exciting on the first of two pours

Drinkability - the potency of the aftertaste and the quality feel gave me time to sit back and analyze with no immediate need to dive back in

It's a meal and dessert in a glass. Slow down. This is a low speed zone and the chocolate tanker is coming through. Since its still March Madness season, Choklat is a quality 5 seed, but its definitely 1 and done. I'm going to hold 1 for a year and come back for another sample.

look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Brief re-write of an old review. While this is still a great beer - with one HELL of a chocolaty aroma - it doesn't hold the same luster as it used to. It's still one of the best chocolate showcases of any beer on the market, however its lack of depth and sugar-laden finish can make it a bit wearisome after a while. Even half a bottle is far too sweet, and the overly thin texture doesn't help it out. This is still immensely enjoyable, especially considering it's as drinkable as a super-sweet, 10% dessert beer will ever be.

---

A: Pours an extremely dark body that looks a little thinner than one might expect. I like how vigorously the carbonation rises to the top, even if the one finger tan head has lacking retention/lacing.

S: A total sensory overload of dark, bittersweet chocolate. I mean HOLY SHIT. As a chocolate lover, this is total nirvana. I would complain about it upsetting the balance of the other stout characteristics (such as roastiness), but who cares? The smell is so amazingly in your face and shamelessly bold that it's hard not to fall in love with it.

T: I admit to having a bias toward chocolaty stouts (or, for that matter, chocolaty anything), but I have to admit. This is incredible. The booze does make a bit of an appearance on the finish, but it fits here. Aside from the bittersweet dark chocolate explosion (that thankfully doesn't feel or taste artificial), notes of dark fruit, coffee, and licorice pop up in patches. Still, this is something that knows what it's trying to accomplish, and doesn't go for anything different. Subtlety? Balance? Complexity? Fuck that. Here's more chocolate. Sure, I'm a huge advocate of those three criteria, but sometimes, you just want to be punched in the face with a certain flavor you really enjoy. That's exactly what Choklat is, an unashamedly one-note chocobomb. Chocoholics, your heaven in a bottle has arrived.

M: A little thin given its alcohol weight, but it bulks up just as it gets ready to leave the tongue covered in stickiness. Carbonation is low as expected, but dryness is high. Some of the flaws of its body may be more evident on a lesser beer, but it's hard to say it's overly porteresque (which it is) when the rest of the beer is so enjoyable.

O: I'd only ever drink one of these at a time, because trust me on this one - a little goes a long way, in fact, it would be best to share the bottle with friends. I can't give it all 5's in good conscience, since it's not quite perfect by any stretch, but I can't think of a beer I enjoyed more in such a long time.

It might be overdone for non-chocolate lovers, though. Even if you're not, it's more than worth a try. If you do love chocolate, then this is something to go out of your way to discover.

I was lucky enough to have this on draft at the Publick House in honor of Phin's appearance. The distributor rep said they had not planned on having it, but made a last minute change to have it on tap for the evening. I was very excited to experience a glass based upon the recent thread that posed the question, what is the most chocolate tasting beer available?

http://beeradvocate.com/forum/read/1458191

The beer was deep brown, bordering on black. Aroma was almost exclusively cocoa powder. There was no doubt about the flavor of this beer long before it ever touched your lips. There was a very creamy tan head that remained for a while then faded back into the black magic.

The taste was a burst of chocolate and really did remind me of bittersweet or unsweetened chocolate. Certainly a "big" flavor that asked you to savor the beer slowly. I was almost shocked that you couldn't really detect the high alcohol level as you drank the beer. Very nice. Later as it warmed considerably, you could definitely note the warmth from the alcohol but this was neither distracting nor unpleasant.

Drinkability was rather high for a single serving meaning this is no session beer.

Very nice effort, only outdone by the Crème Brulee Stout. But that's a story for another review!

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

Pours an almost black with a one finger head that doesnt stay too long. Not a whole lot of lacing either, especially for a stout. The smell is of chocolate, with a roastieness from the malt and alcohol. The taste is very chocolaty as well, but with several different chocolate flavors appearing through the taste. I still get a slight alcohol bite when I look for it. This is a very good beer, its sweet and chocolaty but not so sweet that i cant enjoy it. The mouthfeel is creamy and this is a very drinkable beer.

Now this is one crazy beer. I have to hand it to Crazynelson on this one. This was sent along with a twin during one of my first trades. I'm only now getting a chance to try it out.

Poured into a Duvel glass at around 45 degrees this beer has no head and very minimal lacing. The color is extremely dark brown - as evident when pouring. In the glass it is pitch black.

The aroma is just like chocolate syrup. I can also detect honey, ripe bananas, and rich malt (like when you open a can of unhopped malt extract). This smells extremely juicy.

The first taste brings me back to 1st grade sipping chocolate milk with too much hersey's chocolate syrup in it. The temperature, flavor, and even mouthfeel are strikingly similar. This is the craziest beer I've ever had the pleasure of drinking. And I do mean pleasure!!! By the way this might be the sweetest (almost sacchrine) tasting beer I've ever had; I'm ususally not a fan of these types of beers but I like this one.

The mouthfeel is smooth, somewhat thin but just about right. It's only a little thinner than milk - this is about like skim milk.

This beer is in no way a session beer. At 11.0% abv this is a night ended of a beer. My advice is to drink this on a weekday night at around 8pm and sip it until ready for bed. That's what I plan to do!

Purchased 12/2012
Cellar temp: 50-55
Color: Dark black, with thin tan head
Aroma: strong chocolate aroma dominates
Taste: strong chocolate, not very sweet, but overall pretty tasty, I then mixed 50:50 with Founders Imperial Stout for good combo. It tamed the Founder's hoppiness and gave it a good chocolate taste.
Overall: 4.1/5

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 22oz bomber.

Pitch black color with a head that falls quickly.

Aroma is pure chocolate, similar to hershey's syrup drizzled over a hershey kiss.

Taste is spot on rich, sweet chocolate with a full body that hides the alcohol well.

While I can't drink a lot of this, it is a great conversation piece that goes over well even among non-beer drinkers.

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

Pour is properly stouty black with light lacing. Dark tan head, about 1 inch thick, fades away quickly. Nose is aggressively chocolatey, milk chocolate. Sugar...lactose. Almost nutty.

Flavour starts off with a bang, sugary, milk chocolatey, is it beer or dessert? Cherries. Light hoppiness and roast tones. Cocoa. This is easily the most chocolate heavy beer I've ever had. Alcohol only apparent on the swallow, where it kicks pretty hard. By any standard this is good stuff, though the flavour is best had in moderation, not just because of the alcohol but because of the flavour, which becomes a bit cloying in larger doses.

Mouthfeel, good but not exceptional given the category. A beer with this high of an ABV would be hard-pressed to be thin, but it's not as thick as I might like. Drinkability is good, but also not exceptional. It's a treat, but one that would wear out its welcome beyond the occasional bomber. Also a skosh pricey at $7 per bomber, though well worth the cost.

The bottom line: If you like stouts and you like chocolate this is a must try. Southern Tier has put together a big, smooth drinking imperial stout with good character. I do feel that the entire bomber is a bit much for one person, but this brew still deserves good marks and respect.

22oz bottle poured in my Southern Tier Tulip Glass

A-Jet black, 1 finger creamy brown foam head lingers.

S-Chocolate!!! Some roasted malts but a lot of chocolate

T-Finally a chocolate beer that delivers a lot of chocolate. Roasted malts and coffee flavors come through as well. Very sweet.

M-Medium bodied, creamy

D-Too sweet to be overly drinkable. Just like when you head way too much chocolate in one sitting, the same thing goes for this beer. I wish I had split the bomber with someone.

Poured from 22oz bottle into over-sized wine glass.

A - Very solid black body with a small -mocha colored- layer of foam on top. Head does not seem to retain.

S - Light, sweet, chocolaty broth. Smells glorious.

T - Very balanced, chocolate malts up front, thick chocolate texture in the middle, followed by the sweet taste of a milk chocolate bar. After taste is slightly bitter like that of baker's chocolate.

M - Chewy, thick, sticks on the palate and top of the tongue.

O - Overall it was a great dessert. Served exactly as it should. The chocolate aroma and taste is overwhelmingly enriching to my taste buds. 22oz of this 11% chocolate imperial stout is near perfect.

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.

500ml Bottle

Appearance - The beer pours an opaque black/brown colour with a very large frothy light brown coloured head. I can't see much carbonation due the darkness of the beer and there is some very nice lacing running in stages down the sides of the glass. The head lasted for several minutes before it began to dissipate.

Smell - chocolate, malts, coffee, roasted/toasted notes

Taste & Mouth - The beer actually has quite a bit of carbonation which is a good thing considering how thick and syrupy the beer is. Most of the taste consists of chocolate, coffee and malts. I also picked up on the alcohol and some light hops. The beer finishes with a bitter coffee aftertaste.

Drink - I drank this beer on Christmas day and it was a perfect winter warmer. I've had some chocolaty tasting beers before, but this one packed the most chocolate punch. A fantastic beer that I'm happy I tried.

Poured on-tap and served in a tulip, the beer is a dark brown to black coloring with a thin, light tan head. Good lacing while you drink. Nose of melted chocolate, syrupy, milky, and fudgy. Flavors of roast initially, with a blend of bitter baker's chocolate and milk chocolate, with a sugary sweet overtone. Smooth and creamy in mouth, and the bitterness cuts through to clean everything up. Roasty and bitter aftertaste, with a slick, smooth finish and moderate linger. Beer made for the chocolate lovers out there.

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.

Served on-tap at Al's of Hampden into a Bell's tulip.

A - Pours midnight black with a thin white film of head, dissipating to a light ring around the outside of the glass, leaving little wisps of lacing down the glass.

S - As the name implies, huge amounts of bittersweet chocolate are ever present in this one. Even more lactic sweetness lurks in the shadows with the dark roasted malt. Very sweet smell, but in a good way. My only gripe is that it is a bit one dimensional.

T - Lots of rich chocolatey flavors up front giving way slowly to a mix of lactic sweetness and lots of dark roasted malt. Finish is quite sweet with plenty of lingering roast. A bit of heat comes thru in the finish as well. I like to drink this one with desert. It is very sweet but not to the point of being overpowering. Very nice sweet stout.

M - Heavy body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Finish is a bit hot with lots of lingering dark roast. Very sweet with a nice creamy feel.

D - Fairly high. Very sweet, but in a good way. The perfect desert beer. Over time the sweetness starts to get to you and brings this one down a few notches.

Bottle received from obrienej in a trade awhile back. Thanks!

Poured into my snifter a deep thick black with a very thin tan head on top. No lacing at all. Smells like marshmallows, Hershey's syrup, honey, coffee liqueur, and almonds. Very nice!

The mouth on this is thick and slightly syrupy with a dry, chalky finish. If I sip this right away out of the fridge, it is a big boozy syrupy mess. I would definitely recommend waiting 'til this warms up a bit. As it warms the chocolate flavors come to the forefront. Nice roasted aftertaste, and slightly sweet finish. This is good, but the alcohol is a bit too high for my pleasure. Rogue's Choco Stout is better, as the ABV is about half of this.

I drank half the bottle of this and my wife and I used the rest to pour over a tall glass of vanilla frozen custard. Dang! Glad we did that. This was a very pleasant treat that made the night all the more enjoyable. Recommend.

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.

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.

22 oz bomber, purchased at Bella Vino in AA for $7.49.

Pours as expected, black with a chocolate milkshake head. Chocolate drowns out any other smells that might be present, except for something roasty.

Taste is, again, chocolate, and lots of it. Somewhere between a nice dark chocolate and fake Hersey's syrup. Sweet, but still drinkable. Some hops in the aftertaste, a nice touch, it bites through the sweetness in the finish.

Mouthfeel is excellent; thick beer that sticks to your teeth. No evidence whatsoever of the alcohol content. Drinkbility suffers from the sweetness and alcohol content, but its so damn smooth.

A great beer from Southern Tier, who continues to impress. Probably the best chocolate stout I've had, edges out Rogue's by a tad.

Poured from 22oz into pint glasses.

A: Very dark. Nice head formation. A little lacing. Medium level of carbonation.

S: You can smell the chocolate easily while it is being poured. I mean- easily. Get it up near your nose and I don't see how anyone claims to be able to smell the slightest hint of hops or anything else.

T: Tastes exactly like it smells. There is no possible way that there could be a more chocolaty tasting beer. Incredibly sweet aftertaste. Like eating hot cocoa mix right from the bag.

M: Exceptionally creamy and just the right amount of carbonation.

D: This beer is so sweet that I could hardly finish my 11 oz.

I would use this as a dessert beer to split 3 or 4 ways and paired with something creamy (not chocolate).
