Duh.. Beers have been using chocolate for longer than I have been alive. But mainly it is just used as a subtle influence rather than the main flavor of a drink.
2002-02-22 07:56:21 PM  
I don't think I want to drink anything with "fuggles" in it.
2002-02-22 07:56:42 PM  
mmmm.... Young's...
2002-02-22 07:58:05 PM  
now, that chocolate vodka business, on the other hand...
2002-02-22 07:59:41 PM  
its like a party in my mouth, and everyone is throwing up !

I hated that movie Chocolat. Would've been better with some chocolate beer, though.
2002-02-22 08:12:31 PM  
I thought Chocolat was okay.. although if I were the director I would've cut out the last 10 minutes.. that was totally unnecessary.

btw, small amount of salt will add nice texture to lemonade.

Why not throw in some pickles and anchovies while they're at it? Jumpin Jeebus! BLECH
2002-02-22 08:15:24 PM

Mmm...Young's Double Chocolate Stout is a mighty delicious beer, and I bet anyone who says otherwise hasn't tasted it. It's subtle, yet flaccid.

One of El Bulbil's favorites.

When you needed a man
To encourage the van
Or ransack the foefrom the rear
Storm fort or redoubt
You had only to shout
For Abdul El Bulbil Emir

A favorite winter beverage, El Bulbil. Especially if I haven't had time to eat anything substantial.
2002-02-22 08:56:50 PM  
I thought the term "flaccid" was only used to describe... you know.
I don't want a beer that tastes like that. :)
2002-02-22 08:58:43 PM  
And they have yet to come out with a booby flavored beer...
2002-02-22 09:08:46 PM  
Booby flavored?
Mackeson Stout is fortified with lactose.
2002-02-22 09:16:34 PM  
pasteurized or unpasteurized?
2002-02-22 10:11:23 PM  
Titty on Tap! WOO!
2002-02-22 10:13:05 PM  
Okay. This is NOT a chocolate beer. It's a beer that has a taste that is sorta chocolate-like. It is not brewed with anything chocolate, but rather the ingredients are dark and sweet. So, I must agree that this is a great Farking beer. Don't let your initial reaction to the name scare you. It is awesome.
2002-02-22 10:17:54 PM  
Beer should not have chocolate, citrus, mint or any other bullshiat flavor.... Beer should taste like beer. Anything else is just a glorified wine cooler.

The sons of the prophet were hardy and bold,
And quite unaccustomed to fear,
But the bravest of these was a man, I am told
Named Abdul El Bulbil Emir

This son of the desert, in battle aroused,
Could spit twenty men on his spear.
A terrible creature, both sober and soused
Was Abdul El Bulbil Emir

You have been warned...
2002-02-22 10:28:01 PM  
Did I say "flaccid"?

Sorry, I meant to say "limp".
2002-02-22 10:40:12 PM  
Um... sorry to ask this... but can't anyone here tell the difference between beers?

The chocolate flavoured stuff being brewed in the previous story is LAGER NOT STOUT.

Stout is something different (and I should know. I come from Northern Ireland and drink enuff of the damn stuff to know the difference).

All the other people who have said "It's been done before." must not drink that much if they don't know the difference.
2002-02-22 11:30:57 PM  
Don't drink beer, and I'm glad, cuz if I'm eating choclate, I don't wanna puke up all those calories before they can get to my ASS.
2002-02-22 11:34:58 PM  
Nice philosophy... tho that only goes for people who can't hold their liqour and puke their guts up after a few.

Cheers :)

2002-02-22 11:53:54 PM  
I hold it well enough, you know, with my hand, but after the 10th or so rye and coke, it kinda gets to ya;)
I drop my drinks and puke from the sheer disappointment of wasted alcohol.
2002-02-22 11:57:45 PM  
Scree: yes there is a difference between lager and stout, but ultimately beer is beer. Trust me I have spilled more than most people will drink. I still think chocolate beer is wrong. I mean if you need chocolate and alcohol have a mudslide, or a hot schnapp-late or spike a malt or something. But in the name of all that's holy... don't ruin a good beer.
2002-02-23 12:33:30 AM  

I agree with ya.. chocolate should be kept to drinks like mudslides n cocktails..

But i must differ with you, beer is not beer. Guinness is nowhere near like Bud and Tenants. same the other way round.

Anyways stout is better for you.. In small quantities of course ;)
2002-02-23 01:07:10 AM  
Thank god; I no longer have to bother with adding Hersheys syrup to my Sam Adams.
2002-02-23 09:03:56 AM  
This beer kicks ass.

It also cleans engines.
2002-02-23 10:54:47 AM  
I hear what your saying Scree... I just never met a beer I didn't like.
2002-02-23 07:27:15 PM  
First of all, there's no way they add 'bars of chocolate' to the beer. The cocoa butter would kill the head, as would any type of fat. Cocoa powder, however, contains no fat, and makes an excellent beer additive. I've brewed several batches of stout with cocoa powder, and the results were delicious.
