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.

Rich dark chocolate and roasty cereals, dry cocoa finish. Outstanding chocolate brew, dark, smooth and well balanced, works fine as a shared digestive.

2012-2013 bottle on 2/28/15. Pours jet black with a lasting tan head. Consistent lacing that leaves a spotted pattern on the glass. Nose is dark fruit, bitter chocolate, some alcohol. Taste is dark fruit, chocolate, rum or whiskey, vanilla, alcohol. Super yummy.

demannu (85) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Age for just over 1 yr. Strong presence of chocolate in the nose. Slightly oily mouth feel with a solid overall palate. Taste has lots of chocolate and an additional sweetness that reminds me of mild fruit but mostly chocolate. Really solid and big chocolate stout.

Obfuscate (199) - Minneapolis, - FEB 21, 2015
This is a excellent 10% stout to go with chocolate. Almost a sweet stout in taste but twice the alcohol. Bite of chocolate, sip of beer, repeat. Yum!
