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.

Bottle 355 ml. Deep dark brown, rich lightly tanned head. Aroma reminding of chocolate and some soy sauce (perhaps also some gravy). Taste is very sweet and too boozy for me. Finish has a lot of coffee notes and roasted malts. Palate is somewhat sticky.

Swietnie zbalansowane piwo .ktore mozna smialo nazwac deserem w butelce.

Bozo_skeleton (992) - Grenoble, FRANCE - MAR 28, 2016
Noire dense, collet epais et perssitant de fines bulles, belle dentelle. Aromes torrefiés mais un peu leger par rapport a ce a quoi je m’attendais, pointe de liqueur. La mousse est bien crémeuse et sur une amertume tres chocolat. Liquoreuse a souhait en bouche, longue, tres longue sur le chocolat amer, une petite merveille.

Noire pétrole, pas de mousse. Nez intense de chocolat et de café. des notes de liqueurs (cognac, armagnac). Bouche puissante de chocolat, de pain grillé et de liqueur, quelques notes boisées. Le corps est huileux, très dense, l’amertume est moyenne est bien balancée par l’alcool, très présent tout au long de la dégustation. C’est une excellente bière digestive, qui se boit lentement et qui réchauffe !

Bottle from Beers of Europe. Thick treacly brown black pour, brownish foam which vanished rapidly. Decent stuff, the usual heavy roast with some warming booze and chocolate and coffee flavours. Less hoppy and bitter than some, malts to the fore. A decent imperial stout.

Fantastic beer. A glorious dessert in a bottle. Pours black with a foamy tan head. Big bold chocolate notes with a nice roasty malt backbone that shines through. Really enjoy this brew and was honoured to drink it after attending a talk with Steve Hindy on his Birthday where we were all presented with a bottle. :-)

Excalibur123 (354) - Soria, SPAIN - MAR 18, 2016
Vierte negro fuerte con media capa de espuma beige de ligera retención dejando fino cerco; aromas fuertes a cacao, licor, frutos negros y regaliz, en boca entrada potente, muy maltosa con ligero amargor, siguen notas a café torrefacto y regaliz, cuerpo pleno con carbónico medio, amargor medio con final dulce, largo retrogusto maltoso y cafetoso, interesante stout aunque se aprecia demasiado el alcohol.

It’s been almost a decade since I’ve had this beer....maybe too long. Pours an opaque deep brown with a tan head which lingers......aroma of chocolate, touch of smoke, touch of vanilla....taste is chocolate with coffee notes (though obviously no coffee in the mix) , oaken wood, balance of sweet/dry, a finish of smoke and bitterness. As good as I remember.
