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.

Bottle in pint glass. This is bottled chocolate pie. Half a pint glass of dark khaki head, had to wait almost 10 mins to finish the pour! This is a monster if a stout. Aroma of hops and chocolate, taste is chocolate and malts with a generous helping of boozy vodka at the bitter finish. Palate is pie. Score: A+ ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Black with a thin tan head. Dark fruit and roasted malt aroma. The taste adds boozy chocolate and lactic notes. Rich and heavy. Creamy mouthfeel, low carb. Very tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Black beer with a strong aroma of fruit. .. and it smells as strong as it is! Flavour has fruit, chocolate, malt and hop and, again, it tastes it’s strength. Rich with plenty of body and a strong fruity finish. Very nice.

Alengrin (2425) - BELGIUM - NOV 25, 2014
Famed and classic chocolate stout with dark beige, creamy, dense and stable head and very dark brown colour with yellowish hue, almost black. Very attractive aroma of chocolate liqueur, cocoa powder, caramel, raisins, dates, liquorice, cognac, coffee and citrus peel. Candied fruit taste, liquorice, very caramelly and chocolatey, thick and powdery mouthfeel, oily, with long peppery hop bitterishness and roasted bitterness in the finish. Very good.

A very good chocolate stout. I've got some on my shelf waiting for my next bottle to fill a tall and frosty glass. :-) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Huge brew! Deep and intense dark choco flavor, pleasant roasted malts, lovely dried fruits, light vanilla, licorice. Interesting vinous note. Pleasant moderate sweetness, with moderate bitterness in finish. Feels very well balanced despite huge accent on choco. Awesome sipping beer.
