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.

MaBeer1972 (2037) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 2, 2016
Bottle from Julio’s. Pours out jet black with a frothy dark tan head that settles to a thin lace. Sweet earthy aromas. Lots of chocolate and sweet plum notes. Dry cocoa texture. Somewhat fruity in the middle. Heavy body. Lingering bittersweet finish. Not nearly as smooth and refined as some other imperial stouts I’ve had recently.

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. Taste: full body with roasted malt, sweet chocolate and coffee notes. Very well balanced and quiet drinkable. Good attenuation. Aftertaste: chocolate and coffee with sweet domination.

LazyPyro (1125) - 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 (465) - 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

Beautifully smooth chocolate gateaux (hints of dried fruit). A truly supreme example of the style. Rated by BrewTom

4.1
Mishnok (285) - 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
