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.

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

UPDATED: APR 8, 2015 Butelka. Barwa ciemna, nieprzejrzysta. Piana znikoma, beżowa drobnopęcherzykowa. Aromat czekolady, śliwki, palonego słodu. Konsystencja gęstego, oleistego likieru czekoladowego. Smak słodkiej czekolady, śliwki. Goryczka średnia, pozostaje przyjemny słodki, kremowy smak na podniebieniu. Alkohol wyczuwalny, delikatnie gryząc ogrzewa przełyk.

Bottle at home. Pours black, tan head. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malts, slight vanilla. Taste is dark chocolate, semi bitter, a bit of licorice and faint vanilla. Thick, syrupy body, below average carbonation. Faint alcohol burn. Nice imperial stout.

Serapac (204) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 21, 2015
Bottle. Black, medium brown head, quickly disappearing. Little lacing. Aroma roast malt, coffee, chocolate. Taste much the same, but sweetness nicely balanced by bitter orange zesty background with rather long finish. Well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beautiful head, less than one finger nail, black, opaque colour, this brew came recommended from an outside source, (human).molasses, sophisticated, no extra attitude in after taste... Top $ price, Top $ taste.
