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.

Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout has a nice sweet and roasted aroma. The taste is sweet at first, then it becomes roasted and at the end the bitterness of the dark chocolate punches through and rounds up this unique experience. This is a very very fine chocolate stout!

Pours a dark black with brownish-red head. Aroma of roasted malt and cocoa. Tastes of the same with a nice balance of malt sweetness and little apparent alcohol warmth. Pretty nice Imperial Stout.

Bottle. Malty, salty, fruitym sherry-like aroma. Black colour, brown head. Fresh chocolate flavour with acidity and liquorice. Very full-flavoured and tasty. Aftertaste like bitter chocolate.

GoldenSpunky (120) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 14, 2005
Pours a frothy black with creamy black head. Aroma of roasted malts and chocolate caramel seasonings. Very subtle sweetness along with a hoppyness kicking in at the end. bottle of 04-05. Not as flavorful as i would like but a tasty and smooth Russian Imperial stout nonetheless.

Had a 2003 vintage last week and was really impressed by how well the beer had matured. While the dark chocolate aroma was still very much present, the chocolate and roasted malt flavors were much more accented than I remember. The long, dry finish makes this a real lip-smacker. I have a little left of the 2003 and 2004 vintages.

pours a very dark black w/ a tiny brown head and a little carbonation. smells of chocolate, coffee, and malts. Pretty creamy w/ a touch of a bitter aftertaste. The flavor is of chocolate hint of vanilla, coffee, roasted malts... good.. almost a little to bittersweet.

This poured a thick, black body with a moderate, but bubbly, tan head. Aroam primarily composed of espresso and anise with some notes of chocolate. Chocolate (bitter) comes out a bit more in the flavor but is still relatively subtle. This combined with the burnt coffee taste makes for a long-lasting, dry finish.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2005 Midnight black with brown highlights at the transition to the beige head with good lacing. Wonderful aroma of chocolate, toffee, vanilla & a touch of alcohol. Smooth silky mouthfeel with chocolate, roasted malt and a little fruity sweetness. Sweet chocolately finish. Alcohol hidden very well despite the mild alcohol in the nose. I poured this one while eating a huge 7 layer chocolate fudge cake immediately after drinking a Boddington’s Pub Ale - talk about a prime example of a perfect food/beer pairing! Hope I can find another case to stash away for a while.
