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.

Pours a deep black color with a great tan head that leaves nice lacing down the glass. Aroma is filled with sweet chocolate and hints of coffee?. Taste was very smooth and thick, creamy chocolate flavor that ends only slightly bitter. The alcohol taste was very nice and minimal for an imperial stout and there was a slight smokey flavor left afterward. Overall a very amazing beer.

Deep black color with thin brown head. Strong chocolate aroma. Very creamy in the mouth. Can slightly taste the alcohol but it blends well with the chocolate.

jamesp (13) - Thornton, Colorado, USA - MAY 17, 2004
Winter 03-04 bottle. Small to medium sized dark brown head. Definitely has that aroma that I love, chocolatey and malty. Wonderful black color, can’t see any light at all. Great mouthfeel, creamy, and some lingering chocolate on the palate.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 15, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2004 Winter 03-04 bottle. Small fizzy light-brown head that maintains a decent fizz. Very dark brown/black clear body. Deep chocolate molasses aroma with some hints of cherry licorice (?), blueberry, and whiskey. Bitter fruity chocolate taste. Full of flavor, and a pretty thick body. I think the best part of this beer is that it doesn’t seem like chocolate is added as an adjunct... it seems all from the malt. Drink at 60 degrees.

temporrari (385) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 13, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2011 04-05 winter bottling. Pitch black w/ dark brown head. Rich chocolate aroma, some plumminess perhaps with a tinge of alcohol. Very silky chocolate flavor. Real delicious stuff. Full and creamy mouthfeel. Alcohol is very well masked. Just damn good. Excellent imperial stout.

11-12 Bottling is perhaps the best batch I can recall tasting of this beer.

Deep dark black, no light coming through it. Poured with a nice tan head. Chocolate, roasted malt aroma. Taste was dark chocolate bitterness with a slight coffee finish. Full bodied, coated the tongue. Slight alcohol/bitter finish. One beer to look forward to every year. Exceptional.
