    I LIKE IT.
    I also will not be reading anymore of this thread as all of this has been covered 1000 times.
    (not saying you shouldn't have posted....)

    WHen there are beers on the shelf I don't like, I keep walking. I find it's effective and simple.

    if i thought that the goal of a bottle of port was to drink the whole thing, i'd hate port too.

    Least with port you can revisit over time.

    if you use a champagne stopper on a beer and put back into the fridge immediately after pouring, it can last up to a week even with 2 or 3 more reopenings. some beers are better shared between several people anyway.

    Actually, Brooklyn Black Chocolate is not chocolate...just chocolate malts. I think Choklat is the best chocolate beer out there IMO. It's best for sharing, but it taste like real chocolate to me. Creme Brulee is a sweet beer for sure, but I don't mind a small pour of it.

    A bridge too far. My teeth still hurt. Love Chok!

    Yeah, I didn't mean it necessarily had to contain chocolate. I love the deep, dark chocolate flavor that comes from Brooklyn Black Chocolate. Choklat is just sweet and meh for me. I think the name is appropriate: tastes like fake chocolate. It's not because it's from Belgium that it can't be cheap and crap.

    I made a chocolate cake with it and it was awesome, but when I tried to drink it and it wasn't so awesome it reminds me of those flavored syrups that come out of those hand pumps at gas stations. It's by no means a bad beer just way too sweet.
  10. To me, drinking some milk that has been sitting out in the hot sun for a week past its due date would taste horrible...I realize to each his own and many feel CB is a bit too sweet for their taste, but horrible? Seems like hyperbole.

    My favorite of the ST Stout series but agree anymore than one bottle is impossible

    Was a big fan of this beer. Had once after dinner and enjoyed the aroma and sweet taste for dessert.

    According to the brewery rep I spoke to, Wisconsin (in general) likes it. Apparently we "drink sweet" and it's their best market for that beer. As for me, it's a slow sipper in a small glass after a meal; I can't imagine consuming it under any other circumstances.

    This thread motivated me to pop the only bottle in my cellar of CB. It'd aged for over a year so we will see how it tastes with the age on it... first sip was pretty tasty. Will post back after I finish this glass (16 oz snifter poured with about 14 oz in it

    This is a quality beer! I first tried it on draft at a beer festival and loved it. Bought a big boy bottle and split it with a buddy of mine. Not quite as good as draft, but still good none-the-less. Taste matches name to a tee. Higher ABV is a bonus!

    After getting toward the end of my snifter I will not go for a second pour. It was tasty but as everyone has eluded to. Would be drank with 1-3 people. 7 ox would be optimal for my
    Liking. Although it did hit the style and fwiw I could see me having a bottle for my friends.
