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.

Drinked from bottle. Dark brown, almost black colour. Really nice brown and thick head, which is staying long. You can feel hints of roast, chocolate and caramel. Not to sweet, bit bitter. Feel really nice in mouth, oily texture. Average carbonation. Overall really nice beer. Good representative of that beer style.

VincentAnthony (39) - Massapequa, New York, USA - MAR 4, 2016
Pours black with a thick tan/brown head. Aroma is fresh and sweet with some chocolate, hint of coffee and roasty aromas, with subtle alcohol. Silky smooth on the tongue. Gentle carbonation. Nothing overpowering in the taste - some chocolate and dark roasts with a very balanced flavor. A delicious and very drinkable Imperial Stout!

jamestulloch (3304) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 22, 2016
Bottle from Cork & Cask. Black body with a dense tan head. Good lacing. Aroma of chocolate cake, blackcurrant and cocoa powder. Flavour of blueberry, dark chocolate and an earthy, peppery finish. Full body with a thick, luscious texture. Light carbonation. An indulgent treat, although the alcohol becomes much more evident as it warms.
