Dark black, lots of dark chocolate taste and smell, hint of vanilla. Pretty great if you like chocolate

As a rule, I don't drink Stouts, but my wife does and I tasted hers. This was a great beer! The main thing that got me was the taste and mouthfeel. I could taste Chocolate and Cherry with good body, and there was no lingering aftertaste that I have found with most Stouts. We were visiting in South Carolina. Wish it and their Chocolate Orange Stout was available here in Virginia.

This is a delicious dessert beer. Roasty coffee mixes in with a chocolate pudding sort of flavor. The beer is somewhat creamy with plenty of chocolate. Really good stuff, but a little heavy. Probably best to share or drink slowly. Not hot, just really rich.

Poured hard (expecting little carbination) into my Straffe Hendrik tulip snifter. That was a mistake. Head overflowed. Dissipated in two minutes and kept a ring with little lacing. The nose picked up the dark chocolate and little else. The taste was dark chocolate that lingered on and on with only faint notes of coffee, bourbon and vanilla. In the mouth was a most pleasant creamy thickness. Overall, if you enjoy dark chocolate, you would love this. Enjoy sipping after a meal or before bed.

22 oz brown bottle - DOB 9/21/17

Southern Tier Choklat Imperial Stout filled my snifter with a opaque black body. The head was 1/2-finger in height, tan in color and dissipated quickly to just a foamy ring. No lacing was produced. The nose is dominated by a nice dark chocolate aroma. The taste is very similar to the nose being dominated by dark chocolate with dark cherries, sweet caramel also noted. The Ale has a light bittersweet finish. Mouth feel is full-bodied, creamy and smooth with a 'lighter' carbonation.

Choklat Imperial Stout is a chocolate desert in a glass. A very good after dinner drink or nightcap. The drinkability is only limited by its full flavor and higher abv.

Definitely getting the chocolate. The 10% ABV is perfectly hidden. This is really tasty, but not as good as their thick mint imperial stout in my opinion. Try it for yourself & tell me what you think. Cheers! A- (90-94) score range

On tap; poured into a snifter.
Appearance- gorgeous midnight black with a thin tan head that leaves very minimal lacing!
Smell - a boozy chocolate milk that doesn’t require much effort to pick up it’s delicious aroma!
Taste - rich chocolate and booze up front and throughout the session; chocolate milk with a touch of bourbon!
Feel - heavy sipper that is almost an after dinner liqueur as much as a beer!
Overall - a big, bold, heavy desert in a beer glass, absolutely fantastic!

L - Pitch black with a thin medium tan head that leaves very minimal lacing behind.
S - Sweet, rich chocolate up front with slight hints of roasted, toasted malt and barely.
T - Follows the nose: Sweet, rich chocolate up front and throughout - tastes like a mix between milk and dark chocolate - but probably heavier on the dark chocolate. Notes of roasted/toasted malt and barely more towards the back end with slight notes of toffee and vanilla.
F - fuller bodied with a light amount of carbonation. Thick, rich, decadent, luxurious, and smooth - the whole nine yards in terms of what a dessert stout should feel like.
O - This is a really great dessert stout - personally I prefer Thick Mint and Choklat Oranj, but the original is still a great choice for anyone looking to enjoy a dessert stout.

Pours pitch black with an extremely tin tan ring of head and virtually no lacing. Smells like chocolate milk with roasted malts. Taste lives up to the name as it is a chocolate bomb with both milk and dark chocolate present as well as a touch of bakers chocolate, molasses and roasted malts. Medium bodied, very lightly carbonated, smooth and creamy mouth feel with a slightly dry and bitter chocolate finish.
