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.

smells of chocolate and liquoriche poured really dark, with virtuately no head, like crude oil taste was wonderful, stouty chocolate all the way though, sweet and bitter at the same time, like dark chocolate thick and full mouthfeel, lovely really indulgent and looks, feels and tastes like the luxury it is! my favorite so far

Bottle. Black beer with a tiny brown head. Nose of sweet malts and dark berries. Sweet taste with loads of chocolate, coffee and licorice notes. Sweetness and alcohol lingers at the end.

Bottle from Saveur-Biere.com - Color: deep dark black beer with no carbonation and medium heavy ivory white foam. Smell: roasted malt, coffee and chocolate domination. Really sweet nose.

LazyPyro (593) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2016
355ml bottle. Pours black with a small tan head, nice lacing. Aroma: rich dark chocolate and dark fruits, coffee, alcohol. Taste: dark chocolate, dark/dried fruits, coffee, alcohol, roast malt. Full bodied, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Very rich, almost liqueur like in texture and mouthfeel, warming brandy feel to it, so smooth, velvety. A delicious brew, one that I can’t think of any area it could be improved upon.

pours into an amazingly dark body with a caramel head. aroma is a wonderfully rich dark chocolate the full aroma is almost cake-like giving it some extra body. the flavor of this beer is exquisite adding a taste of treacle to the chocolate flavor you’d expect.

Blueshawk (386) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2016
- tiefschwarze Farbe mit einem leicht zerfallendem Schaum - wunderbare Noten nach Bitterschokolade und Rosinen - angenehm ölige Konsistenz - perfekte Kohlensäuredosierung - wunderbar malziger Körper mit einem leichten Rauchtick - dies alles bleibt im Abgang in perfekter Balance erhalten - der höhere Alkoholgehalt drängt sich nie unangenehm in den Vordergrund Fazit: Unfassbar gut und das auch noch zu einem annehmbaren Preis

Mishnok (106) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2016
From 335ml bottle. Dark with an initial latte coloured head which soon fades to lacing. Aroma of coffee and winter fruits, but not especially strong. Rich mocha and dried fruits taste. Good body and very smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle@Morton’s Market - Black color and strong Mocha Chocolate aroma. Taste is mocha, roast, with some bitter dark chocolate, and a hint of dark fruits. Thick and smooth as silk. Palate was rich chocolate, roast, and just pure yumminess! Finish of last ounce was like liquid chocolate mousse. One of the best brews i’ve ever had!
