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.

Vinous chocolate and dried fig aroma. No roasty malts in the aroma at all. Dark black with a thin, brown head that fades. Initially the flavor is a sweet, dried fruit flavor but then it quickly changes to a bitter roasted oatmeal and barley flavor which then fades again into a chocolaty finish. Wow, surprisingly complex flavor. Medium full body, sorta creamy texture. Doesn’t come off as thick at all compared to some other imperial stouts. Dry finish..it is leaving me feeling dry and chalky. Very enjoyable. Thanks to Zathrus13 for this bonus.

’01-’02 Bottle. Aroma chocolate/licoricce/roasty. Appearance, black as motor oil, with a faint brown head that fades quickly. Taste is strong roasted and chocolate. Quite sharp. Sweet finish. Very thick and heavy. A great sipping beer.

Quite odd to drink this on a warm summer day. This is heavy stuff. It’s completely black. Flavor is powerful and lingers in my mouth forever. Thanks to Papsø for assisting in rating the aroma. And for helping me drink it.

Wow, if you like a really chocolaty stout, grab this now. Reminds me a lot of the samuel adam’s chocolate bock, great strong flavor.

04 Bottle. Pours a very nice black with a tan head. What a wonderful roasted chocolate coffee aroma. Hops are very muted in this beer. This beer explodes in dark-chocolately and roasted malt flavors, with some relatively well hidden alcohol warming. Nice smooth mouthfeel and some moderate bitterness closes this beer. Awesome stuff.

Dark black body with a brown head. There is a choclate-coffee aroma. The taste has burnt flavors with chocolate undertones. There is some alcohol warmth as this goes down, but there is little in the way of alcohol taste.

Poured dark black with a thin tan head that went down quickly. Smells of strong chocolate that makes the first sip very enjoyable. Tastes just like it smells with a nice smooth chocolate kick. If your a chocolate lover, as i am, this is the stout for you. I think I’ve found a new favorite stout to drink although it is tough to get in florida.

This a lovely and strongly tasting beer with a long finish and a full body. The aroma is as far as I see, or smell it, the weakest part of the beer, but this is of no big importance when you taste it. Then it kicks you in the face with its impressive power.I would say that It goes well with chocolates but not with salty food.
