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.

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.

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. 2005. pours a deep black body with a small ring of mocha head. the aroma is very rich, inviting, and complex - cheesey yeast, chocolate, vinous, raisin sweetness. flavours of bittersweet chocolate and a delicate soft creaminess. very smooth yeasty body. full of chocolate and toasted caramel. assertive bitter finish. I like this stuff!

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...

what i like least about guinness is the ’roasty’ flavor and this beer also has that taste, but it’s fuller and chocolatey and much more impressive than guinness.

Bottle.Brown small but lasting head. Pitch black body, wow, no light coming through there. Impressive. A bit sharp chocolate aroma. Amazing that these undoubtedly nice fellows have managed to combine sweet chocolate malt with hops and such a high alcohol percentage.

Winter ’05-06’ bottle. Pours a dark black with a small tan slightly lacing head. Aroma of cocoa, sweet chocolate and dark fruits. Flavor of darker chocolate, coffee and a nice dry hop. Slightly thin body yet bitter due to the hops. I have another bottle of this I’ll let sit for a year or two to see how it balances out.

04-05 bottle that Duane let me sample. Great chocolate aroma gives way to a flavor that is much more coffee than anything else. Pretty full mouthfeel which is great, but I’m not much of a coffee kind of guy.

I really enjoyed this beer. Thanks one more time, Santa! Dark with tan head. Hearty aromas of malt, coffee and chocolate. Full in the mouth, though with medium carbonation. Flavor is roasted, smoky, definitely chocolate. Very nice.
