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.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - APR 23, 2006
Pours jet black with dark brown head. A very hefty aroma of dark chocolate and roast malt. Very viscuous fluid that goes down like velvet; full of coffee, smoke and chocolate. This is simply excellent.

IrishBoy (4085) - Bakersfield, California, USA - APR 21, 2006
Opaque ebony with a medium brown head with nice lacing. Chocolate mocha aroma with an extremely smooth chocolate malt taste and chocolate linger in the aftertaste. It hides the alcohol well! Thanks to TheBeerCellar2 for the trade!

ElGaucho (2387) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - APR 17, 2006
MN Ratebeer Winter Gathering ’06. Bottle. Bourbon notes in the nose, which is somewhat faint. Opaque body with a small, light tan head. Excellent lace. Excellent brew! I love it. Rich, high alcohol. I’ve waited some time to get my lips on this one and it was well worth the wait.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - APR 15, 2006
Inpenetrable blackness with a strong tan head. Deep chocolate aromas, with fruity, winy notes. A roasty, sharp expresso bitterness comes first and is joined by intense dark malts. Fruit and licorice join together and lead into a long dry, winy finish. A chocolate aftertaste lingers along with some tangy hops. Great with dessert.

tjthresh (1867) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - APR 7, 2006
03-04 bottle from BBB63. Pours like the color of used motor oil, and almost as thick. A smallish brown head formed on top. I blinked, so I almost missed it. Wonderful aroma of anise, dark chocolate covered caramels, smoke, some tobacco, dried fruit, and alcohol. Gourmet hot chocolate, mildly abrasive carbonation, hint of oxidation, Hearty alcohol presents. Flows in waves over the tongue. Spectacular.

webjedi (250) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - APR 4, 2006
Pours a thick as a peat bog and black as midnight. Light orangey-brown head. Heavy scents of oatmeal and malt. Some coffee and roast flavors throughout. Definitely a burn on the way down with slight bitterness. A little oak onthe nose. Slightly creamy, lighter, like lowfat milk, on the tongue. (Bottle pour 4/4/2006)

Lowe1983 (1483) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2006
Pours a dark black color with a thick dark brown head. Aroma is of sweet dark fruit, chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, and alcohol. Huge chocolate flavor with a hint of coffee, roasted and sweet malts. Finishes with a little alcohol warming. Very thick on the palate. I was very impressed with this brew.
