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.

I had a whole growler of this, it tasted great!!! Going in and coming out! What a trip. I’m lucky I’m alive.

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.

Praktycznie czarne piwo z niezłą beżową pianą. Aromat głównie gorzka czekolada i trochę nut palonych. W smaku znowu dominuje deserowa czekolada, inne nuty daleko w tle. Trochę zbyt jednostronny stout

Color negro con capa de espuma marrón de tres dedos de grosor y buena retención. Carbonatación suave. Textura cremosa. Aroma amargo, a licor. Me recuerda a una Baltic Porter, extrañamente... No encuentro chocolate alguno, no me vais a sugestionar. El aroma es pobretón hasta decir basta, casi indescriptible. En boca vuelvo a ser incapaz de describirla. Malta torrefacta, toque herbal, toque de ceniza. Nada de chocolate, nada de dulzor o café o cosa similar. Final algo amargo. Postgusto ligeramente amargo. Igual tenía que haberla envejecido, pero así como está (Winter 2017, según reza la etiqueta), no me interesa demasiado.

The bottle opens with wisps of silver smoke. A thick, jet-jet black fluid glugs out into the glass. Fine carbonation chases a tight, beige head. The aroma is enveloped in fresh, dark chocolate. Nuanced with hints of Arabica coffee and black cherries. Walnuts, and rich sticky toffee pudding. A touch of oak and earth. Smells pretty boozy. Vanilla and brandy sauce. Stale tobacco smoke. The mouthfeel is thick, smooth, and creamy - the ideal body for imperial stout. Slightly herbal aftertaste. Medium-sweet, with a bitter finish. This is a great imperial stout - it tastes natural, has great body, and strikes a fine balance of flavours.

Nice nose with some acidous notes of cocoa and caramel. Appears very dark and looks really nice in a dark brown almost black colour. Taste is also light salmiak with lots of cocoa notes and som coffee to go on the top. Palate is high viscosity and long lasting endulging sweetness with slight agreeable bitter notes like high % chocolate. Really nice companion.

Probada en botella en Lupulove (calle caballeros) el 23/2/2018. Negro azabache, opaca. Al servir se genera una espuma beige que perdura bastante. De aspecto cremoso. Aromas dulces y licorosos, a maltas torrefactas y caramel. No puede disimular en nariz su porencia alcohólica. En boca es aterciopelada, oleosa, de sabor a carbón, café portugués. Pero el dulce de las maltas equilibra esta sensación amarga del torrefacto. Vainilla, tofe, caramelo. Lúpulos herbales, con ciertas notas a pimienta. El alcohol calienta ligeramente la garganta al tragar. Muy buena imperial stout

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2018 Påminner om julmust i utseende. Luktar av choklad. Choklad, nötig karaktär, en aning lakrits, låg sötma, härlig kakaobeska.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2018 Flaska från SB. Kraftig smak av kaffe och mörkchoklad med rökig touch. Ölen har en brun skumkrona.

williamlantz (124) - - FEB 3, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2018 Winter 2017. Black colour with a large tan head. Aroma: chocolate, dark dried berries, bourbon, some smoke, roasted malt and a hint of mint. Vinous notes. Taste: a sting of alcohol, roasted malt, cacao, some vinous notes and bourbon. Quite dry.
