If you're going to get drunk on chocolate, then chocolate martinis are the way to go.

You can compare this to a CMart and tell me which one is better, then.

After that trip to the P&L District, I was afraid my brother's buddy Ryan (our driver) would never be seen with us again. :D (But they're going again this weekend... and he's drivin'. Says he had a blast.)

Find a driver, or drink where ya sleep.

Chocolate can be savory as well as sweet. I've had it cooked with chilis to make a sauce. I honestly don't know what to expect.

Where does the chocolate come into it, if not for adding chocolate flavor? Is there any actual chocolate involved? Or is it just a term for a brewing technique?

I would have to check my recipe for that brew, but as luv stated, not all chocolate is sweet. Even if you did stick a "Hershey Bar" in the brewing process, the yeast would eat it up (the sugar) and take out the sweet taste, but would add to the alcohol content. When I brewed with chocolate, I brew up a chocolate porter.

Doppelbock tastes nothing like beer. It's really hard to explain the taste, but it's very malty and I have seen it reach 12-13%. It will burn the paint off cars, and knock the hair off your cooter. Nasty stuff IMHO.

One of the best beers I have brewed to date was a Strawberry. EVERYONE who tried it, loved it. Fresh Strawberry's in the batch, damn that was good on those hot August nights. I need to brew that again this summer.

I had a chocolate beer at a Buffalo Wild Wings a year or so ago and it definitely had a chocolate flavor. It was the worst beer I've ever tasted. I couldn't take more than a few pulls before I had to push it away and get something else. I don't remember the brand, but it wasn't Sam Adams.

Most of the time Chocolate beers just have what is called chocolate malt in them. This is basically a roasted malt that imparts the roasty bitterness of chocolate but does not contain any chocolate. Along with this, some beers add cocoa powder, chocolate nibs, or other dark chocolate items that don't contain sugar for more of that chocolate flavor.

I have said this before but again Youngs Double Chocolate Stout is the best Chocolate stout I have ever had
