Complex beer with different nuances of aroma and taste very well balanced out. U can taste them all separatly without one being dominant , lasting enjoyable aftertaste. Definately a very good beer. Nice surprise. coachd (1000) - Missouri, USA - OCT 20, 2017
Smells roasty with distinct dark chocolate notes and slight booze. Looks magnificent - midnight black with a dense brown head. Taste follows the aroma with a welcome addition of oak and a hop bite in the aftertaste. Palate is not thick but it is smooth with more carbonation than expected but it works. This is good; reminds me of Bell's Expedition Stout. I'm throwing a few bottles in the cellar and I predict that they will age very well. balloonbuffoon (803) - - OCT 16, 2017
12floz bottle, winter 2017 edition, ~$1.75 unit price, pint glass. Appears nearly black in color and a small layer of head. Mmm...chocolatey, toasted graham cracker, and brown sugar are abundantly noted as aromas and flavors.Sweet on the tip and roasty in the finish, the palate is full and has bold character. I really enjoyed this a decade ago, and I do still today - which it has recently been made available to me locally. gregwilsonstl (2734) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 14, 2017

From XXXII. In Tekuglass. Watching King Arthur. Very balanced taste, with chocolate and vanilla notes standing out. Alcohol provides a warming feeling but not an unpleasant sweetness. beermastersasho (172) - - SEP 4, 2017
For me this stout is underrated! Why people do not like it? It smells so much of chocolate, it is smooth and balanced, little bit sweet, and not hoppy. (is this the reason?) For me is one really good imperial stout, and easy to find! Little bit bitter, coffee... 2OLD4BS (24) - west windsor, New Jersey, USA - AUG 29, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2018 The best stout I have ever tried! Out of this world! There is the chocolate flavor but it is just right not too overwhelming. Perfect carbonation not too much not too little. Perfect balance. The alcohol is very well hidden. Great finish! It does not get any better than this! It is a masterpiece! Enjoy! torgerd (34) - Radom, POLAND - AUG 24, 2017
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. Grumbo (4563) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2017
Bottle, from Mr Foley’s, Leeds. Backlog entry. Entering my historic scores for US beers whilst visiting New York. No tasting notes kept, just rating. But very good.
