What do you think of brewing chocolate in your beer? How do you have to handle it in fermentation? What do you think of the flavor pairing? Better in a stout, a porter, or (surprise me) a weissbier, etc.?

I have made several chocolate stouts and enjoyed them. SWMBO has a chocolate wine she enjoys and I am playing around with an idea for a hint of chocolate mead.

Chocolate stouts & porters have been made for a while now, here's a really good one:

You might be able to find this one more easily:

There are a few chocolate beer recipes in the database:

Got a chocolate porter in secondary right now with cacao nibs. Should be ready to bottle this weekend.

My buddy brews a white chocolate stout (won't share the recipe) that is like a desert beer, it is so tasty :P
