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.

BrownALEx (375) - Portland, Michigan, USA - JAN 30, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2013 A: chocolate and coffee. A: very dark with a huge khaki head that takes a while to settle. Decent lacing left on the glass. T: chocolate, roasted malts and alcohol. The warmth of the alcohol gets more intense as the beer itself warms P: for an imperial its kind of medium bodied, not as thick as others. O: decent Imperial Stout. Glad I tried it.

Kosmokrator (668) - ITALY - NOV 17, 2015
Imperial stout nera e cioccolatosa con note di cacao, caffè e malto; gusto amarognolo e un po’ scivoloso, corpo meno robusto dell’atteso. Buona ma non trascendentale.

Padchenko (166) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 30, 2015
Pours black with no head. Low carbonation. Aroma of chocolate with a taste of roast hops and chocolate in the mouth, with a mildly bitter finish. Full texture, and pretty strong! Really nice

angel77 (1725) - oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 24, 2015
Botella 33 cl tomada en el momento en el kraken 24..10..2015 (r3279). Lote ilegible en Botella hasta 11..2017. Color negro intenso con poca espuma beige oscura. Aromas y sabores maltosos tostados de cuerpo ligero fácil de beber con toques finales de cacaos y algo de lactosas, junto con ligera acidez y frutos silvestres. Bastante buena. Para repetir sin duda.

Stew41 (1822) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - OCT 24, 2015
Winter 11-12 bottling. Deliberate cellaring effort. In very good condition and still more than enough chocolate running through the palate and still plenty of fizz. Good for another year at least.
