Dutch cocoa powder tastes much better than that Hersheys stuff.

So here's the ingredients...label me skeptical that this will bottle carb - look at the preservatives:

I'm not sure why you'd want all that crap in your beer.

I have never tried it so all of this is just my thinking...

I wouldn't put hershey's syrup in my beer because it tastes way too artificial to me. I like it on my ice cream and in milk, but I spend too much time and money on my beer to ruin it with 'fake' chocolate syrup. This is, of course, personal opinion.

I doubt that there are enough preservatives in the syrup to really effect your beer since you will probably be adding a relatively small amount.

Response to first question, beer has carbed w/o issue. Samuel Smiths Orgasmic Chocolate Stout? Hell yes, every chance I get. I believe they are using a high quality (duh) chocolate extract at the finish. Once upon a time, I roasted cocoa nibs, crushed them into vodka and (my daughter wants to learn to make beer as well.) My daughter actually leaned over my shoulder to type that. What I was trying to say, is the flavor of ROASTED cocoa nibs made into a tincture (extract) is just amazing. It really adds the flavor of a great chocolate to anything it mixes with. "White Kay Star" brand makes what is touted to be a fantastic chocolate extract, but it is described as an additive flavor of chocolate, not to be used as the only chocolate flavoring, if that description makes sense.
Young's Double Chocolate Stout is a great ale, but I believe Sam Smith's is a better choice.

Nothing comes close to Sam Smith's.... Too bad it's been de-listed up here...

So I finally cracked a bottle - only tried syrup in three of my bottles just in case. Added three tablespoons worth in each. Definite carbonation and the closest I've gotten to Sam Smith's - though I'd probably go 1.5 tablespoons next time. Thanks to mindenman - sorry I was so skeptical...
