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.

Chocolate stout com espuma fugaz, aroma de cacau e café torrado, gosto acompanha o aroma mas sem realçar tanto o café. Retrogosto com leve amargor. Cerveja boa para o preço mas nada demais...

2.1.2015. Pours black and quite thick, brown head. Quite intense roasted aroma of chocolate and coffee. Flavour is dryish bittery roasted, dark chocolate, coffee notes at the end. Very good value for price. Warming.

I’m not normally a fan of chocolate stouts but I liked this one quite a bit. Silky, dark, Carmel, heavy, a touch sour (which was my least favorite part) would buy again but not my fav

Bottle from Signal Variety, Plaistow, NH. Aroma is pleasantly chocolatey without being overpowering with a mild cheesy/doughy component? Appearance is opaque black with a modest (one finger width) orangey-beige head with fair duration and nice lacing. Taste is interplay of medium bitterness and sweetness. Full bodied, creamy texture with lively early carbonation (mildly overpowering the taste) and nice, long finish. I always give extra props for beers that achieve a particular taste (chocolate, in this case) through malts, hops, or grains rather than adding the actual flavor to the beer--that seems a bit like cheating. This beer achieves its taste through a variety of malts. Overall, a well above average beer!

Lacy tan/white head over a dark brown body. This beer has a bitter dark chocolate aroma but a sweet chocolate taste with a slightly bitter aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ulysse (269) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 24, 2015
First whiff of chocolate. Then strong spirit aroma. Quite bourbon like. Amazing cocoa / chocolate aftertaste which is hard to get. Had to linger in the mouth for a while.

Forte odeur de spiritueux. Goût de café et de spiritueux très prononcé. Lourde à boire. un peu trop extrême

Pitch black beer with a one finger high, beige, head. A lot of lacing stays on the glass. Nose: Licorice, roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, dried fruit, plum, raisin, molasses and brown sugar. Taste: Red berries, roasted malt, fudge, dark chocolate, coffee, tobacco, ash, vanilla and honey. Body: Full body with crisp, light carbonation. This is a great beer!
