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.

clongeron (36) - - AUG 7, 2018
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2018 Brewed 2015/16 so it has aged a fair bit. Bottle pours jet black. Instant warming roasted malt aromas, biscuits. Similar in taste, whatever hops were present have smoothed out significantly. A fairly decent stout.

sharky2kx (95) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - AUG 7, 2018
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2018 Winter 15-16 version. Pours black with a thin, off-white head. Nose is supermilk chocolate, roasted notes, porridge, tobacco, smoke, marmalade. Heavy booze notes. Palate is thick and perfect. Wonderful carbonation. Taste is more supermilk and dark chocolate, tangy sticky toffee pudding, bananas, sweetened coffee and light acidity along with hops.

Ravnstone (312) - - JUL 23, 2018
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2018 Lukt: dadler, soya/salt, sjokoladepudding, kaffe, q Smak: salt, dadler, kaffe, mørk sjokolade, mineralsk, lakris, anis, karamell, Kremete topp som en espresso, myk i munn, Fin og 'rund' lukt. Smekkfull av nyanser. God og myk i smaken også. Mere av de søte maltsmakene enn de spisse, slik som salmiak og kraftig kaffe, mokkabønner... Meget god og fin. 7,8/10 180723

gabrielquinqueto (13) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - JUN 20, 2018
Ela tem coloração preta, nada de luz passa por ela, e a espuma é marrom, cremosa, densa, de boa formação e ótima estabilidade, deixando marcas na parede do copo. No aroma, apresenta notas maltadas que remetem a chocolate, café, licor de café e cacau, além de notas frutadas que remetem a frutas escuras e passas, como ameixa, trazendo também uma referência a calda de ameixa e compotas. No paladar, tem dulçor médio/alto e amargor também, equilibrando o conjunto, e repetindo as notas do aroma, acrescido de caramelo queimado, calda de pudim e o alcoólico aquecimento dos seus 10% de ABV. O corpo é alto, com textura cremosa e licorosa e carbonatação média e adequada. O amargor aqui parece ser em grande parte proveniente da torra. O final é levemente adstringente, traz as notas de compota de ameixa, chocolate e café novamente, tem dulçor residual, deixa a sensação de aquecimento alcoólico, mas não é extremo, é o amargor é prolongado. O gole é longo e complexo, o que impede de dizer que fácil de tomar. Com o tempo ela vai esquentando e mudando, tornando o frutado mais perceptível. Talvez você demore para tomar toda essa garrafa, mas será uma experiência deliciosa e prolongada. Não tenha pressa, essa cerveja vale o seu tempo!

huineman (792) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 8, 2018
Winter 2017 edtition 355 ml bottle served in large snifter. Pours pitch brown, bright and dense, with dark beige head that lasts little but leaves a long-lingering thin layer on top. Aroma is vanilla, chicory, milk chocolate, coffee beans. Mouthfeel is soft, creamy and velvety; very low carb and intense (yet not aggressive) bitterness.

cobaink2 (1003) - seattle, Washington, USA - APR 3, 2018
12 oz bottle. Has a bizzare nose once opened but dissipates. Deep dark malts dominate. Molasses and dark chocolate with a bit of nutmeg. Really great.
