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.

ClassyBeagle (376) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 1, 2013
FROM NOTES: November 29, ’13 on draft into a snifter at the Black Friday event @ Kraftrwork, Philly. A: Sweet roasted malts and dark bitter chocolate with some dark fruit/fig notes. A: Dark brown almost black with a nice thick tan head on it, that leaves a nice lacing. T: Dark bitter chocolate with slightly under ripe plum through the middle. Finishes with sweeter dark fruit notes with slight bitterness and smooth alcohol warmth. P: Medium bodied with faint carbonation, velvety smooth.... O: It’s good, but considering other high quality choices available, it’s average by comparison.

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.

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...

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!

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.

Klasik. En ritkgt stor och riktigt söt dak. Rena efterrättsölet. Massor av kolakräm och laktos möter de chokladiga smakerna. Fantastiskt doft men väl söt att dricka, även i små klunkar men visst är det riktigt gott.

Very dark brown, no head. Lovely luscious chocolate aroma. Sweet and rich, full of candied fruit flavors. Lovely roasted flavor underneath. Full bodied without being thick.

Pours black. Cocoa and bourbon aromas. Heavy, somewhat grainy texture. Very much alcohol on the finish.

Partagée avec mon cher Appiantiqua dans nos petits verres Duvel 18cl: jolie robe ébène surmontée d’une mousse beige assez persistante avec une bonne carbonatation.Le nez nous offre des arômes de chocolat et café grillé avec des notes houblonnées et vineuses.La bouche est à l’image du nez avec une fine pointe d’amertume qui se mêle à la douceur de cet ensemble très harmonieux nous laissant sur une finale bien agréable!Un excellent Stout!

appiantiqua (240) - Lyon, FRANCE - JUL 3, 2017
Partagée avec mon petit KIttenbieer dans un verre Duvel 18cl. Température de début 9 à 10°. Très belle robe ébène et opaque surmontée d’une mousse beige assez persistante; bonne carbonatation. Nez d’une grande richesse dans sa palette aromatique : Houblons, chocolat, café et autres senteurs grillées. Le goût est de la même trempe avec des saveurs de torréfaction et une amertume appréciable le tout parfaitement équilibré. L’arrière bouche est longue et très plaisante avec la chaleur de l’alcool et le retour des notes chocolatées. Un stout parfaitement réalisé.
