    A couple of us are talking about Chocolate Beer. So would you drink it? Have you drank it? If you did, did you barf afterwards?

    What do you guys think about it. But then again, I'm wondering if I should be asking a nation who calls pig blood black pudding.:p

    Chocolate beer is absolutely lush. I first tried it at a beer festival about fifteen years ago, when I was a wee slip of a lad and fell in love. Since then, I've had it everywhere I find it - after Guinness and Modelo its my favourite beer.

    The combination sounds odd, but believe me it really works. Something about the cocoa flavour goes perfect with the malty taste of 'proper' beer.

    Incidentally, I don't know if you'll get the chance, but anyone who goes into a Wetherspoons pub now may be able to experience another 'taste sensation' - namely 'Fruhli', which is a Strawberry beer from Belgium. Its absolutely gorgeous! That said - there is one caveat with it - don't get so pissed on it that you throw up the next day - its NOT good on the rebound...:oops:

    I'm with Zeb there - chocolate beer is great. It's a bit like a bitter kind of ale sort of thing. As such it doesn't stand out much in the UK where there is a lot of bitter and 'brown' beers. However, in a country which was mainly lager drinkers, it would stand out a bit.

    I tried that cherry beer once and it was horrible.

    I've been in IT long enough now that beer no longer hits the spot and I'm on a bottle of whisky a day to keep going...

    Sorry, but I think that Fruhli is rotten. A few sips aye, but anymore than that and you may as well be drinking cherryade syrup. Get some Exmoor Beast or Summer Lightning down your Gregory, then you'll know who's side your on!!!!

    I've had Chocolat beer and agree it's nice. Wouldn't drink it all the time but if it's there and there's nothing else, or my good lady buys it from Tesco's then yum yum :D
