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.

12 oz. bottle. Pours an opaque black with a thick, luscious mocha head. Great aroma of raisins, currants and toasted malt. There was lots of flavor including coffee, toasted malt, raisins and plums. I didn’t get the chocolate so much. Also, there was a definite alcohol burn which got in the way and overpowered the other flavors.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2006
A Mes rate: 33cl bottle from Bar Fringe (Freebie! thanks Mike!) Chocolate and coffee nose as you would expect. Bllack as night with a dark mushroom coloured head and lots of lace. A touch more sweet and creamy than you would expect, maybe it’s the chocolate. Lots of coffee in the finish. Nothing out of the ordinary really but a fine beer.

A very black body and pour with a dark brown head. Plums and chocolate are noticable in the aroma. Heavy chocolate and coffee accents in the taste. A bitter ending very similar to black coffee.

thehinge (290) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JAN 1, 2006
Black pour with a burgundy head. Aroma is caramelly. The malts are very good.....hints of caramel, chocolate and raisins. The mouthfeel is very chewy and thick. This is what an imperial stout should strive for...I think.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2006 ’05 bottle purchased from Kroger on Carystreet in Richmond, VA. Poured a dark, and I mean dark black body with a dark chocolately brown head that diminished quickly. Chocolate and caramel are sweetly pesent in the aroma. This stuff is thick and screams chocolate. This is the beer equivalent of death by chocolate cake, only not as sweet. Chocolate hits you in the mouth with the taste followed by some slight roasted malt. Alcohol was very prevalent in the finish, but not overpowering. Definantly warms the body up a bit. Very good, but this stuff is like a meal all by itself!

The aroma is of dark fruits and roasted chocolate malt. The color is a deep rich black with a tan head. The flavor of dark fruit comes through nicely with a rich roasted malt finish.

theacelatrain (262) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 25, 2005
Bottle. Dark black with little brown head. Aroma of dark fruits, dark malts, and alcohol. Strong flavors of alcoholic, fruity red wine and burnt chocolate malts. Smoky, roasted, and very fruity - quite sweet. Impressively complex, but alcohol and fruit dominate too much.

Bottle @ Akkurat, Stockholm
Full bodied. Plenty of chocolate, sweetness and some bitterness. Coffe (cappuccino) hits in after warming up a bit. Dangerously easy drunk. Wish the bottle was larger...
