You'll get over it, wussmitter.

Nice that Souther Tier got a mention.

you know, i once had a beer that had a just the barest aftertaste of bitter chocolate. It was really pretty good (it was a home brew, if i recall)

For dark beer, the malt is roasted.

Just like chocolate

Just like coffee

All the above-three can be complementary among each other

No chocolate in this, but the roast malt gives it that impression.

Damn, beat me to it. Can't wait until that is back in season again.

that Brooklyn beer stuff is delicious.. just don't spill it on your favourite white shirt (shiat!).

The clamato people assured me that there was only a little clam in it.

That's how it should be done. Hell, even adding cocao at the beginning might be acceptable.

Putting Hershey's chocolate syrup in a Coors light like a woman I went to college with used to do is exactly this: Devil's liquid feces.

I hear that's why Prince parties with it.

As long as it bears no real sweetness, just the nice bitterness of cacao it might be pretty decent. Especially with the added spices. I, however, am a person who cannot abide a sweet alcohol.

That thing is just so freakin' tasty.

My oatmeal stout recipe gets incredibly chocolatey after about 3 months of aging, and all I use is 1.5lbs of roasted barley and some chocolate wheat (5-6oz maybe, handful tossing!). I haven't actually tried putting cacao into a beer yet, but chocolate is easily replicated by grain tastes alone.

A good way to start your legitimate drinking career.
I recommend Sierra Nevada's stout. It's delicious.

Happy birthday, Spencer. Hope someone buys you a chocolate stout.

Me, I could go for one of these right now. Having trouble finding it...

Hey, Clamato is actually pretty decent. You can't taste the clam.
 
2008-02-28 01:43:00 AM
I never really liked Rogues Choco stout. But Choco Indulgence is nice and Lagunitas Capp Stout is wonderful.

Youngs, eww... Can't stand it for some reason.

I've had the Michelob chocolate beer, and it was actually pretty good.

Pink4Flower: Hey, Clamato is actually pretty decent. You can't taste the clam.

They farked it up by using powdered clam juice (???) and, like every other Merrikun beverage, high fructose corn syrup.

No, a bock and a stout are two different things

But both can be wonderfully tasty

Chocolate beer? This could be the next carbonated milk!
 
2008-02-28 01:50:03 AM
I've been a home brewer for many years.

A nice stout with a bit of dark chocolate makes a fine snack on a winter afternoon.

Sadly, most peoples idea of beer is a nondescript carbonated beverage.

Get brewing ladies and gentleman. Real beer is so much more than that.

The Caesar, Canadian-Style

Tomato juice, check
Celery stalk, check
Tobasco sauce, check
Worchestershire sauce, check
Celery salt, check
Tomato juice w/ clam brine...wait, what?

It's good, but still... the clam industry must have had naughty pictures of someone at Mott's somewhere.

I'm a chemistry nerd who's doing some studying to do just that. I'm currently reading up on the hoppy compounds and loving all the organic complexity in them. Until I have the money and space for a brewing setup, I'm stuck just researching.

I love a good chocolate stout.

And beer and chocolate are a GREAT combination.

Young's is awesome, it lets me be a chocoholic and and alcoholic at the same time!

thamike: Don't forget the snake wine, my fellow Bohemian.

So a story for all you farkers.

I live in the bay area and work at a software company and one of the results of that is that I have many asian coworkers. All born and raised here and pretty young like myself.

Since we're on the coast a good many have taken vacations across the pacific to the countries of their ancestry or their girlfriend's ancestry (hey programmers can get girls too!)

One coworker went to vietnam and brought back multiple bottles of snake wine as souvenirs for other people, primarily the QA managers.

So one day one of the QA managers is needling one of the testers. Eventually he dares and offers the guy 50 bucks to drink all the snake wine. And another 50 on top of it if he EATS THE SNAKE.

Yes you heard me. That thing floating in what looks like formaldehyde? Chew up the whole thing and swallow. Even the bones.

So this crazy farker uncorks the snake wine and I shiat you not the WORST smell comes out. It smells like vinegar mixed with incredibly bad colonge and embalming fluid. This thing wafts over the whole cubicle field and a huge crowd gathers. And we watch horrified as he gulps down that liquid.

I was checking online frantically to make sure that they don't package those things are purely ornamental fixtures and that we wouldn't have to call poison control in ten minutes when i hear a loud crunching noise.

He had started eating the dead snake.

He was slowly chewing it up, eating it up from the tail towards the head like it was a long strand of spaghetti while the crowd was going wild, cheering him on. Finally he gets to the head of the cobra with the fangs exposed and stops. He won't go on. He's afraid of poisoning himself he says, but pay up, he did it!

The QA manager only gave him 50 saying it didn't count unless he ate the whole thing. But the crowd quickly turned on him and he reluctantly gave the other 50. By far the most bizarre thing to happen at work ever.

The punchline happened later, during the annual review:
Executive (confused, incredulous): "It says you made a subordinate eat a snake!"
Manager (indignant): "But I PAYED him!"

/continue with the beer

Ah, there's nothing like a Young's Double Chocolate Stout. Screw you for thinking it's scary.
 
2008-02-28 02:21:25 AM
some of the best beer I've ever had was a coal porter, which had chocolate, coffee, and caramel in it. Dark, and so damned good. Titletown Brewery in Green Bay FTW.

To those interested in homebrewing and who are wondering if it is worht it, DO IT.

I've een brewing over ten years. In that time I have made couple of chocolate stouts that blew the socks off any commercial chocolate brew (i'm looking at you, Young's, though its not bad.)

But the crowning achievement had to be a Chocolate Espresso Stout, from last year.

Turns out its a pretty common recipe for beer snobs in the know, Lovejoy's Taproom downtown has their version of it currently.
