This is the famous Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout, our award-winning rendition of the Imperial Stout style once made exclusively for Catherine the Great. We use three mashes to brew each batch of this beer, achieving a luscious deep dark chocolate flavor through a blend of specialty roasted malts. We brew it every year for the winter season. It is delicious when newly bottled, but also ages beautifully for years.

Pours black with a one finger tan head with nice lacing. Aroma is of roasted malts, dark coco, milk coco, coffee, dark fruits, caramel, sweet malts, and molasses. Taste is similar to the aroma with the addition of some licorise, anise, and some light booze as it warms. Has a medium-full body with a semi

Pours Black With light Brown foam. Nose is simple - burn and toffee and some yeasty undertones. Full bodied and very balanced taste. Burnt, toffee, chocolate and a balanced bitterness. Nice glass

Great smelling stout with smells of chocolate, cinnamon and vanilla. Really dark thick color blocks out all light. Tastes very sweet with a lot of complex flavors, even cold. Drinking this side by side with a two year old bottle, it is much stronger and more flavorful. The two year old bottle is much softer and more subtle. Both are great.

Not sure if itís really black, but itís damn close, nice brown head that receded quickly leaving a small ring and minimal lacing. Aroma is bitter chocolate, and coffee. Great flavor, caramel, toffee, ash, coffee and chocolate. Judging by itís name only, I thought this might be a bit sweet too sweet for me, this is really a terrific brew. Thanks Joe!

Quack-Duck (9060) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 18, 2015
bottle from BiŤrerie Illkirch-Graffenstaden. Deep black with a creamy beige head and an alluring aroma of chocolate. Full-bodied yet the alcohol is well hidden. Chocolatey with a shy touch of coffee and caramel, delicious dark chocolate flavours up front. Delicious and smooth.
