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.

Very nice with hints of coffee and coffee. Almost on par with a Youngs Double Chocolate Stout. Yummy.

I went on to check my rating of this and found out that I never have, so it’s about damn time. As expected, it’s black in color and has a creamy cocoa head with some lacing. Boozy, chocolaty, roasted malts in both nose and flavor. Good stuff.

Bottle. Dark liquid like strong black coffee, tan head. Full body, light carbonation. Medium bitterness, bitter aftertaste. Thick, looks like liquor. Aroma of dark sugar and molases, coffee and strong taste of bitter dark chocolate. Very good one. Taste like strong concentrated chocolate cake with coffee.

Poured from a 2012 bottle into a snifter a darkest brown black with a dark tan head. Aroma is molasses & coffee. Flavor is quite smooth from the aging. Strong coffee very little booze evident. Bittersweet chocolate here. Tasty!

ABT_S54 (145) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2014
33cl bottle served in a Duchesse de Bourgogne glass. Pours black with a dark beige head which almost immediately dissipates into a thin foam over the top of the beer. Aroma is powerful with dark chocolate and dried fruits preserved in alcohol. Taste is less chocolatey than the aroma with coffee notes taking over (just a hint of mocha) and tobacco. Not as complex as some (Black Damnation series) or as powerful (Bourbon County) as some imperial stouts but excellent all the same. A swirl in the glass at the end creates a swiss roll style swirl in the residue foam. Slightly disappointed that around the edges it is dark red whereas as some Imperial Stouts remain the darkest of blacks no matter what. Most similar to Sierra Nevada Narwhal.

Excelente imperial Stout. Muito café, chocolate. Menor torrefação que as Petroleum. Perfeita para um dia frio.

Inte så himla illa faktiskt. Smakar rätt bra och den är ju ganska billig. Bra för att vara en Brooklyn ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
