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.

From Mexican restaurant of all things in NYC. Aroma of chocolate, sweetness, smokiness, very nice. Black beer with a pretty brown head but it disappears faster than expected for an Impy. Flavor is solid with chocolate, smoke, wood, a bit of bitterness from the chocolate. It’s weaker than some other Impy stouts but that isn’t a bad thing here. It’s almost a bit too drinkable for the APV. Nice, very nice.

Chocolate and vanilla aroma with hints of cognac. Taste of chocolates and toast. Really nice roast notes in the aftertaste, which BTW is loooong. Semi-dry, but still some well balanced vanilla sweetness added. Hints of liqourice.

Bottle, thanks Ben for grabbing. Aroma: chocolate, roasted malt, molasses, smokey. App: pitch black head, minimal beige head, small. Some shy lacing. Taste and palate: full body, creamy, soft carbonation, smooth, sticky, medium sweetness, warm alcohol and abrupt bitter finish. Overall: wow! Perfectly balanced between the sweetness and the bitterness. This is a masterpiece.

Nera, schiuma color caramello non molto persistente. Aroma di caffè, frutti rossi, melassa, vaniglia e liquirizia grezza. Al palato molto presente il cacao amaro; in secondo piano caffè, leggerissima ciliegia e leggerissimo cappuccino; splendida nota alcolica che ricorda lo cherry molto molto lunga. Sul finale l’amaro da tostato lascia il passo ad un lieve amaro erbaceo. Corpo pieno, non molto carbonata. Una imperial stout esemplare.

W aromacie czekolada deserowa, kawa, nuty likierowe (lekkie alko), marcepan, lekka słodycz odchmielowa także jest obecna. W smaku wyraźnie kawowo - palone, czekolada, leciutki marcepan tu także obecny. Finisz wyraźnie palony ze słodkim likierowym posmakiem. Wszystko fajnie, tylko czemu tak mało pełni? Niedosyt pozostaje.
