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.

Wow, this is delicious. Hard to drink more than one in a sitting, but it is really more of a treat as I look at it. Dark as night, chocolaty goodness you will not be disappointed.

335ml brown bottle with a very nice looking label with gold lettering, poured into a snifter glass. Appearance is opaque brownish black with a small thick mocha head with good retention, that when reduced left a little lacing. Aroma of milk chocolate and roasted malts. Flavours of dark chocolate, roasted malts, toffee, prunes, spices, and a hint of alcohol and coffee. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium full bodied, creamy texture and soft carbonation. Overall a great Imperial Stout, the alcohol is slightly noticeable, and it’s not as chocolatey as I had anticipated.

On the nose is chocolate, sweetness, a bit nutty, booze. Taste is dark chocolate primarily, balanced malt profile, sweet with some bitterness on the end, there's also a bready/cracker note to me. It's a good chocolate stout, but a bit too boozy. Overrated in my opinion. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mocha chocolate, straight forward and kind of one noted. Pours pitch black with a small head. Taste of roasted malts, licorice, chocolate. Enjoyable mouthfeel and surprisingly easy, alcohol is not very forward.

Whatup14 (583) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 10, 2014
Bouteille 330ml. Couleur noire intense, mousse moka foncée riche laissant une belle dentelle. Arôme de malt torréfié, chocolat noir en abondance, cendre, marc de café. Goût de chocolat, malt torréfié, pointe d’alcool quoi qu’il est presque invisible, amertume minime en fin de bouche. Carbonatation faible, corps dense.
