COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 (3199) - 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.

Bottle from a trade with Werckmeister, many thanks! Black color with tan head. Aroma is melted black chocolate, rich and thick, with just a hint of milk chocolate. Taste is black chocolate, black chocolate, black chocolate. Cocoa beans, Cocoa powder as well. Low carbonation, just the right amount to be ticklish. Absolutely flawless. Well drinkable as well, not that in your face stuff. Doesn’t need vanilla or coffee, it works like this as well!

anstei (967) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - FEB 20, 2016
Bottle, courtesy of SinH4 referring Werckmeister. Like molten dark chocolate with a hint of milk, like a hot chocolate. Heavy without being overly sweet on the palate. Light and fizzy carbonation, matching the beer very well. Very, very impressive.
