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.

via trade with OhioDad - Winter 04-05 - Pours almost black with a good tan head. Head settle quickly to a film leave lacing everywhere. Very nice. Nice roasty chocolate aroma. Slight alcohol aroma. Flavor is also roasted chocolate. Slight alcohol warming. Has a tad bit of roasted malt aftertaste. A smooth, dry, full bodied beer. Very good. Thanks Scott.

thewolf (12305) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2006
Almost completely black with slight red sides and a big, firm brown head. Thick chocolaty aroma with slight bitterness and coffee as well. Taste is sweet and bitter in a chocolate sense. The aftertaste leaves an impression of the 8,25% alcohol (in this bottle) and a thick layer of dark chocolate. Great!

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - JUN 18, 2006
As I recall: (lost the original notes) Opaque, browninsh black with beige head. Large, vinous, malty character, with coffe, chocolate, heavily roated. Slight molasses and dried fruit aroma. Very bitter and rich (thanks to the sweetness), long aftertaste of a bitter, malty character. Very full and sticky palate, thick and appetizing. I think mine was 10.5% ABV (?)

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - JUN 14, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2008 (Winter 2005-2006)- Jet black oily pour with small brown head. Smells deep of chocolate. Thick full body with upfront alcohol warmth. Overwhelming thick chocolate malt character . Finishes dry with a very deeply highly roasted element and lingers on the palate with hints of coffee. Though it has lost some quality in the newer batches.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2007 (Bottle at Karlsons garage, Gteborg) Really dark, almost black with a brown almost not existing head. Minty, soy. Burned rubber. Banana skids-fudge. Flavour of coffee, dark, bitter chocolate. Salt and liquorice. Some yeast. More dry than sweet. Pretty big body. Soy. Burned rubber. Leaves a minty taste.

HDane (82) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - JUN 10, 2006
Winter 05 - 06 edition. Very dark apperance, tan head is so thin as to be almost nonexistant. Aroma is chocolate, bit of alcohol, roasted malts, oak and smoke. Flavor is chocolate, with some roasted smokeyness, as well as a smidge of dark fruits. Reminds me of a slightly less powerful Avery Mephistopheles.
