Black Chocolate Stout (Brooklyn Brewery)

Alc. by volume: 10%

This beer is strong AF, but it's smooth and creamy like you wouldn't believe. It's also not as heavy as other stouts (like Guinness), so you won't feel it weighing you down. Want to really take this up a notch? Top it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream to turn it into a float.

Organic Chocolate Stout (Samuel Smith's)

Alc. by volume: 5%

You won't believe this thing is actually a beer. It tastes more like chocolate milk meets Ovaltine meets a mocha frappuccino. You'll also never believe that, despite how creamy and milky it is, Sam Smith's Organic Chocolate Stout is 100% vegan.

S'more Porter (Saranac)

Alc. by volume: 6.2%

Saranac's S'more Porter has no graham crackers, chocolate, or marshmallows in it, but it still tastes like the real deal. The brewers use a combination of light and roasted malts to bottle up the taste of your favorite campfire treat.

Sweet Baby Jesus! (DuClaw)

Alc. by volume: 6.2%

Chocolate? And peanut butter? In a bottle!? Yaaaasss please! Truth be told, this is a heavy beer, but split it with a friend and it's the perfect amount. Obviously don't drink it if you have a peanut allergy, but you don't have one, then drink! Drink away!

Vanilla Porter (Breckenridge)

Alc. by volume: 5.4%

The subtle taste of vanilla elevates this porter to crazy heights. It's nutty and roasty, but light enough that it's a great hot- or cold-weather beer. Feeling cozy? Breckenridge also brews this beer on nitro (i.e., nitrogen instead of carbon dioxide), which gives it finer bubbles and a smoother finish.

Voodoo Doughnut Pretzel, Raspberry & Chocolate Ale (Rogue)

Alc. by volume: 5.4%

If you're from Portland, or have ever been to Portland, or watch the Food Network, then you'll know that the city is famous for crazy-flavored doughnut shop Voodoo Doughnuts. Voodoo partnered with local brewery Rogue Ales to create a series of Voodoo-inspired beers — including this pretzel, raspberry, and chocolate ale. It's everything you need and more.

Warlock (Southern Tier)

Alc. by volume: 10%

Southern Tier describes Warlock as a beer that tastes like "pumpkin pie laced with coffee and dark chocolate." It's a bit sweeter than its sister pumpkin beer, Pumking, and is perfect for fall. For me personally though, I'll drink this shit year-round. It reminds me of pumpkin chocolate chip cheesecake, and as far as dessert — and beer — goes, that's a gold mine of deliciousness.
