Southern Tier Choklat Stout: Pure Primal Satisfaction

I could just stop writing here, as the headline really says it all.

Southern Tier’s Choklat is a gush of silken indulgence.  It’s a beer that coats your tongue with a powerful, velvety decadence the way the Smashing Pumpkins’ Cherub Rock coats your ears with a smooth and booming wall of sound.  It is all encompassing, totally original and absolutely unapologetic.

It’s also terribly sexy.  It’s a beer that can make women close their eyes and go “mmmmmm” in a low growl upon the first sip.  It’s a beer that can stir you and set a mood. 

It’s power comes from the fact that it tastes a lot like a boozy glass of rich chocolate milk.  Unlike other beers that use cocoa to compliment the ingredients of a beer, this beer is pure chocolate pornography from first gush to smooth finish.  It overpowers your senses with chocolaty goodness and the warmth of alcohol, leaving little room for traditional beer flavors to come through.  And that’s fine by me.

This my friends is a hit-you-over-the-head creamy toe curler. The mouthfeel of this beer is spot on, laying across your palate with a heft and silkiness that is perfectly matched to its flavor.  It’s an occasion in a glass, one that I always look forward to.

From the time of the Aztecs, chocolate has been considered an aphrodisiac, stirring the passions of those who let themselves get lost in its rich and satisfying flavors.  Southern Tier Choklat Stout harnesses this allure, and adds to it a nip of alcohol, with and ABV of 10.9%.

So draw the shades, put on some Band of Horses,  pull that special someone close and pop open a bottle of Choklat.  It’s the perfect thing to share with your special someone when the candles are lit.

    I looked for this when I was at Boonton yesterday and they were all out – I’m guessing you bought all of the bottles, eh?

      Wow – I’ve gained a reputation as a hoarder!

      No, I got this somewhere else. Maybe at the place you told me about across from the Home Depot in Fairfield, or at my local hit-or-miss liquor store (you know, where I bought all of the Mad Elf they had!) 😉

        Its been a while since I stopped at the store in Wayne – I guess I’ll have to hit there soon, unless you’ve cleaned them out of all the beers I’m looking for.

          My brother…the Beer Hoarder.

          That’d be the best episode of “Hoarders” EVER! They’d probably just walk through, high five me and leave.

          Ha ha, very funny. Of course if you want some Dragons Milk, better get there quick! 😉

    So when you and your hand drank it did you put a little Barry White on the ole turntable?

      That’s only Lefty who likes Barry White, Don.

    I couldn’t agree more with your assessment. Also, I *highly* recommend Mokah from ST. It’s something like (just guessing here) 4/5’s Choklat and 1/5 Jah*va. Sooooo goooood….

    Choklat is like beer brewed from a nice Belgian ganache. I might have to crack one this weekend. I really enjoy that whole Blackwater Series from ST… the Creme Brulee was also very decadent. I have yet to try the Oat since I’ve never been able to find it… some day though… it’s pretty high on my target list.

      I agree about the Blackwater Series – not a clunker in the bunch. I haven’t tried Creme Brulee yet – I’ll have to put it on the list. I’m sure my wife will like it if I don’t.

        I haven’t had it either, but my recon on it is it is sickeningly sweet…much like the real creme brulee so no big surprises there.

    Did you just get this? If so that means it should be back out down here soon and that makes me happy. I agree that this is an absolutely sexy beer. I have a bottle of 2009 in my fridge and can’t wait til it comes back out.

    • October 22, 2010 at 4:35 pm #

      Yup. All the good stuff is coming back – Choklat, Mad Elf, etc. It’s big beer season – huzzah!!

    I must try this…and the Band of Horses reference made laugh out loud for some reason.

    • October 24, 2010 at 3:00 pm #

      It wasn’t a dis, I actually like Band of Horses. But “The Funeral” is totally perfect hipster / adolescent makeout music.

      • October 24, 2010 at 5:34 pm #

        Yeah, I like them too, and the reference fit perfectly.

      It’s sooo good! If you love chocolate, you’ve gotta try this beer.
