COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

First time in several years Iíve had this. Opaque jet black with a small tn head. The aroma is hoppy, roasty, a little sweet and slightly alcoholy. The flavor is very full, with hops and roasted malt up front, but with a little alcohol burn after and finishes slightly sweet. Not my top favorite Imperial Stout, but one I would happily drink again. Recommended.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2006 Pours deep black with dark brown head. Smells of roasted barley, dark bitter chocolate, coffee, and faint alcohol. I love chocolate but I love chocolate beer more.

Draft, Baja Bean, Staunton VA. Black with dark brown head. Aromas of roasted barley, dark bitter chocolate, coffee, and faint alcohol. Flavor follows-- very rich, almost velvety chocolate smoothness, with a nice kick of roasted malt and enough alcohol to sustain it all. Our downtown area kicks off its holiday shopping season with a night of shops offering champagne and chocolates. After some truffles and a bit of the bubbly, this beer falls in quite nicely!

UPDATED: APR 23, 2011 Bottle. Pours pitch black with a respectable smooth, brown head. The aroma is quite roasty, complemented with chocolate and hops. There is a big, roasty coffee flavor up front, mixed with the richness of bitter chocolate. The finish is pleasantly bitter, earthy hops, and after several sips a subtle sweetness emerges. The alcohol contributes some warmth, but no sting. This is a damn fine brew.

Drank from bottle, Flavor and aroma bursting with chocolate flavor. Nice rich mouthful. As the beer warmed the chocolate aromas were in full force, as was the bitter aftertaste, I was actually about to taste the alcohol in the end. It would make a perfect match with chocolate cake.

ever had Godiva chocolate liqueur? It is supposed to be the essence of chocolate in alcoholic form. I just bought some to use in baking chocloate cakes and truffles. This beer beats it, easily. The true essence of chocolate is not candy, it is raw, musky jungle-love. This beer has it. Smoky and feverish. Made me rub my gums with my fingers like I had just eaten cocaine. And Iíve never eaten cocaine! ;) Wistful aftertaste, like the aroma of a forbidden lover. mmmmmm ~

Pours deep black, the actual stream coming from the bottle is opaque. Has a dark tan head. Aroma is chocolatey. Bitter chocolate flavor abounds, finishes with a very pleasant mocha flavor. Quite delicious. Iím glad its a winter brew, it has the exact same effect on me as a cup of hot chocolate.

Thanks Kramer17801... pours a black color with a small tan head and small bit of tan lacing. Aroma is roasty and chocolatey with a big body. Flavor doesnít disappoint: warm and roasty with hints of chocolate in the aftertaste. Very enjoyable stout!

Too massive. I like the dryness imparted by stouts in the aftertaste, this has very little of that.
