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.

Always loved this beer so I figured needded to rate it. Poured black with minimal head. Strong coffee, caramel and chocloate aroma. Tste was coffee and then the chocolate hits after a few seconds. Very dark and very rich with some creaminess to it as well.

Thanks to DocLock for this one. I enjoyed it. Very black with a light brown head. There is a roasted aroma and a strong aroma of fruit, maybe plum or raisin. The first taste seemed to be of coffee but after several sips the chocolate malt appeared and was great. It was a nice clean taste with the chocolate persisting in the mouth providing a nice lasting feel.

Pitch black like crude oil. A bit carbonated like soda. Taste almost like a chocolate coffee with a licorice-vanilla like aftertaste. it's definately a log-cabin ski lodge beer. Awesome aroma.

A real beer, the 03-04. Chocolate dark brown color and small brown head. Alcohol comes through in the drink, so slow down! Very noticeable chocolate and roasted malt. Made to age some. Thought a bit much carbonation, which held back on mouthfeel. Great dessert.

Drfat at the Grey Lodge in Philly. Good stout. For me it wa a little thin in the Imperial side. Great chocolate roasty flavor.

The aroma and appearance right from the pour is pure pleasure. Dark rich head, pungent chocolately roast aroma and flavor. Could use a little smoother, less carbonated mouth feel. Otherwise, spot on.

BuckNaked (1230) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 20, 2004
Winter 03-03: Pours from the bottle to a dark, opaque, black color with a smaller diminishing head that your average stout. Aromas of unsweetened dark chocolate, coffee, and raisin. Tastes very much like unsweetened chocolate with a slight alcohol and fruity bitter aftertaste. Wish it had a bit less carbonation. Overall a nice chocolate stout.

gsteph (321) - knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 17, 2004
Dark black with thick caramel colored head. Good lacing. Malty aroma, smoky, coffee and caramel with some chocolate. Bittersweet chocolate, coffee with maly sweetness. A little alcohol bite that is blended well. Chewy and smooth.

madsberg (10184) - Søborg, DENMARK - APR 16, 2004
Bottled: Is pitch black coloured. Almost no light gets through. Huge chocolate fluffy brown head with long lasting. Impressive. Full malty aroma. Loads of chocolate, sweetness, some fruityness and a small kiss of alcahol. Flavour is roasty. Hops is present and a malty sweetness. Some fruit charachters. Has a little alcahol bite, but the alcahol is very well hidden. Is fruity and ligth bitter in the aftertaste. This is a very good one. Thanks Raindog.

Opaque pitch black color. Dark chocolate and coffee flavor with a suprising nice hoppy bitterness in the finish. If you have access to this beer, you have to try it.
