Young's is a great and very chocolatey, chocolate stout that very nearly approaches dessert beer status, but is not really that sweet. Not too expensive either.

Sam Adams' winter collection is a great cheap flavored beer assortment that includes the wonderful Old Fezziwig Ale (which is really the reason to buy it at all) and a Cherry Chocolate Bock.

Rogue makes a decent chocolate stout also. About a month ago, I had a Rogue stout bomber and the extremely-vanilla-flavored-and-definitely-dessert-beer-but-delicious-anyway Crème Brûlée by Southern Tier, side by side. That was fun.

Case in point. I doubt very much I could find cassettes locally other than cheap bargin-bin leftovers.

Not really. Sony also made some very good cassette tapes, and their Metal line was great. I still have some somewhere. I just couldn't find a source for them that wasn't fleabay.

More arrogant meat-eating blatherskite. It's safe for them to do that because they are in the majority.

You line up the average omnivore and I'll line up the average vegan. We'll see who's more arrogant and self righteous.

If a vegetarian shop put something like that in their window, it would probably get smashed.

I think they get a worse rap than they deserve, but, I kinda agree. That said though, on several occasions I have been impressed just because I had expected less. Plus, several of their offerings really are better than average: their gingerbread stout is great, they make a decent double bock, their cream stout is very good, and like I said, the Old Fezziwig Ale is pretty good too (as well as the cherry chocolate bock and the juniper ipa in the same assortment). Oh, and I also liked their Thirteenth Hour.

Their stuff is somewhat pedestrian, but, at least they put out a lot of variety and are much better and more fun than typical no flavor stuff like bud or coors and whatnot.

"Chocolate" in brewing can mean that it is brewed with "chocolate malt"--which is barley malt that is roasted dark and the result has a certain chocolate-like flavor.
A GREAT "chocolate" stout brewed with just malt (and no real chocolate) id the Brooklyn Chocolate Stout--usually available this time of year. It is an Imperial/Russian Stout so it is strong--weighing in at 100% abv, but an exceptional beer.

I think the Rogue and the Youngs' use actual dark chocolate in the brew. I've had the Youngs', but not the Rogue.

They make a nice Oktoberfest, and their Cream Stout is deserving of a bigger release.
Their Latitude 48 IPA is good, Fezziwig is pretty good (should also have a bigger release) as is their Holiday Porter.

Other than that I am astonished at how bad some of their output can be. Some of it is just dreadful--I am shocked that they repeatedly put out stuff like their cranberry lambic (which isn't a lambic!).

Back in the late 80s my friend's dad supplied us with a case of Sam Adams Boston Lager for christmas and it seemed like a miracle to us--we had gotten into "good" beer, but had yet to ever encounter a good American beer--the Sam Adams was such a revelation at the time. It's sad as there are a lot of good brewmasters in New England.
