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.

Thanks to richlikebeer for sharing this one. Pours tar black with a thick body and a nice tan head. Sweet aroam of chocolate, yeast, coffee, and roasted malts. Taste is a complex combination of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and a slight alcohol edge. Chocolate taste becomes more pronounced as the beer warms. Simply delicious!

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2009 Bottle 05-06 Black colour, small head. Roasty coffe aroma, almost a little bit smoked. Thick mouthfeel. Coffee, chocolate and raisins. Very roasty. Big and really long bitterness.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 18, 2006
Poured from the bottle at The White Horse on Parsons Green (London, a dark black with a tan head. Chocolate aroma with some bitter notes. The alcohol is quite strong in the taste, along with a short bitterness that works well with the chocolate and roasted coffee flavours. The chocolate comes through more and more and it warms. A great end of the night drink.

Zeswaft (1569) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - FEB 12, 2006
Aroma is a sort of fruity alcohol and a little mocha. Pours out thick black with nearly zero brown head. Flavor is tame for an imperial stout. A little chocolate and a little alcohol and a little roasty. Texture is velvety and thick. This tastes like a lame Expedition. Uninteresting.

NotWthoutStout (32) - Wharton, New Jersey, USA - FEB 12, 2006
Bottle - It poured jet black with a dark brown, yet scant head that faded fast. The aroma is that of a cognac or port and at first leaves you with high expectations but though the initial taste is pleasantly complex, malty it turns quickly to a strong alchohol burn. Not much in the way of chocolate anywhere here. Not a favorite for me.

ElBorracho (472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 11, 2006
Bottle. Great pour...dark brown with a brown head that has that nice amber hue I find in many impy stouts. Only negative was that it looked a little thin. Aromas of roasted coffee and malts. Did not get the chocolate that I expected from the name. Finishes with an alcohol burn that overpowers the drink.

Strong no joking around impy! Pretty amazing stuff for the price nonetheless ($31 a case). 8.7 alc is interesting as well. Overall very much like a mid range impy with a sweet choco kick at the end. On the sweeter end of the spectrum for an imperial. The usual suspects surface.. molasses, strong malt, etc. but a very refined delicious chocolate finish, imo. Very nice choice for the money.

screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - FEB 10, 2006
Black body and brown head. Looks tasty and the first nosefeel from this one makes me curious. The aroma is pleasant! It has lots of chocolate and coffee to it. Also roasted malt. The flavor is little peppry and strong.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2006
05-06 Bottle (from Bitter Virtue). Deep dark colour with a thick brown head. Immediately roasty aromas with liquorice and molasses lurking in their too. Also some sweet malts and just a touch of fruit. Some sweetness leading into a pleasantly roasty (and hop) bitter finish. Quite oily but not excessively so, the carbonation adds a slightly harsh prickle but soon dies down. Quite attractive (but not exceptional) aroma after that its not quite so good.
