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.

what i like least about guinness is the ’roasty’ flavor and this beer also has that taste, but it’s fuller and chocolatey and much more impressive than guinness.

Bottle.Brown small but lasting head. Pitch black body, wow, no light coming through there. Impressive. A bit sharp chocolate aroma. Amazing that these undoubtedly nice fellows have managed to combine sweet chocolate malt with hops and such a high alcohol percentage.

Winter ’05-06’ bottle. Pours a dark black with a small tan slightly lacing head. Aroma of cocoa, sweet chocolate and dark fruits. Flavor of darker chocolate, coffee and a nice dry hop. Slightly thin body yet bitter due to the hops. I have another bottle of this I’ll let sit for a year or two to see how it balances out.

04-05 bottle that Duane let me sample. Great chocolate aroma gives way to a flavor that is much more coffee than anything else. Pretty full mouthfeel which is great, but I’m not much of a coffee kind of guy.

I really enjoyed this beer. Thanks one more time, Santa! Dark with tan head. Hearty aromas of malt, coffee and chocolate. Full in the mouth, though with medium carbonation. Flavor is roasted, smoky, definitely chocolate. Very nice.

Unusually excellent beer from Brooklyn. Very dark, opaque pour with a small, disappearing dark brown head. Exceptionally rich aroma and flavor, not overpowering the ale with the chocolate/bitter flavor as many other chocolate stouts often do. Nice blend between dark roasted malts and alcohol content. Nice surprise from Brooklyn!

Yum. Great aroma of molasses and chocolate. A very creamy head that lasted a long time with great lacing. Black color, of course. There is a moderately acidic intial flavor that lessens a bit. Palate is medium-full, syrupy with a moderate alcoholic finish. Finish is loooong. Can’t wait to see what a year in the cellar will do for this. This is really an outstanding double stout. Probably my favorite Brooklyn beer in the bottle.

Has a bitter chocolate almost iced coffee taste to it. Good texture, kinda creamy. Not something I could drink a lot of, but pretty good if just having one, perhaps two.
