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.

Tykt og svart med brunt skum som forsvinner raskt. Sjokolade, korn, kaffe og et sting av alkohol i duften. Det samme følger i smaken sammen med en deilig kjeksaktig bitterhet i avslutning. Tykk, oljeaktig munnfølelse.

Pours jet black with a thin tan head. Dry, smoky, and boozy, it’s almost like a red wine to me. I’m thinking my bottle must have been off because I don’t see how this gets such high reviews.

From bottle. Poured with 4cm high, pretty head. Having read other reviewers I don’t think my bottle was quite right. The balance and complexity wasn’t there as it should be in a good stout, and the booze came through more strongly than I liked. Would try again to see if it was different but would not have another if what I drank was the real deal.

Black with nearly no head. Lots of bitter dark chocolate. Highly sweet with a mild bitter finish. Flat to low carbonation. Rather one dimensional chocolate.

Pours black haze colour with brown mousse-like compact head. Aroma: almost without trace of an alcohol, with strong note of chocolate, cocoa powder and with hints of vanilla Flavor: alcohol is mild noticable, namely taste of chocolate, vanilla and cocoa powder is too strong. But still very well balanced with fruity esters of hops. Malt sweetness is high, hop bitterness medizm high, body is soft sticky, finish is long, carbonation is low. This imperial stout is not proper for callaring, it must be dring fresh. Then is really delicious.

Lukasmh (727) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2015
Bottle, finally. Pours an easy 5, thick pitch black with ever-lasting thick creamy mocca head. Aroma is rich and complex, as the beer. Delicious roast, fresh press and ground coffee, rich chocolate, dark bitter too, quite roasty as it warms. Slight fruity coffee and soy. Burnt sugar and caramel, burnt figs, dried fruits and cocoa. Taste is more sweet and fruity. Still dominated by dark malts. Dried fruits, burnt sugar, roasty coffee, rich chocolate and some cocoa and chocolate milk. Fudge and fresh press coffee. Very balanced and indulgent. Light for style and very smooth with low carbonation. Some bitter coffee beans in finish along long dry cocoa powder feel. Mocha like!

Poured from the bottle of the four pack, a great value at $8.99. Pours used motor oil black with a finger or two tan collar. I will list the flavors of this beer as I tasted them per drink: sweet, malt, chocolate, spice, dry. I don’t drink a lot of stout so I’m not educated on the nuances but I like Brooklyn’s other offerings, and it is 10%, this was well worth the flyer I took on it, very happy with the purchase.
