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.

Homer321 (4838) - Melboring, Florida, USA - MAY 6, 2017
Bottle. Winter 10-11. Pours pitch black with almost not head. Nose is rich chocolate. Dark fudge. Light tobacco. Some faint dried fruit character. Taste is chocolate, light coffee. A touch thin seeming but I think it might be slight oxidation. Finish is clean, dry. For the age this had held up pretty damn well.

rodsquad (200) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - APR 3, 2017
Bottle from Beerhawk. Nose of dark dusty chocolate, roasted coffee beans, gentle booziness and a bit of licorice. Almost black appearance with thin light tan head. Flavour adds a touch of ash with a bitter boozy front. It has a soft body but then a rather off putting prickly sharp low fizz introduces itself. It gets better as it settles. Taste has a lot more alcohol than the nose. A roasty stout which is fine but let down by the peculiar fizzy body.

Flaske kjøpt på Vinmonopolet Langnes av DjOeye. Aroma sjokolade med med bringebær og litt tropisk mix, kaffe. Utseende sort med beskjeden mengde beige skum. Smak melkesjokolade, bringebær, tropisk frukt, kaffe, alkohol. Sjokolade og bar i starten går via bær og kaffe over i sjokolade igjen i avslutningen. Alkoholsmaken er tilstede. Dette er godt og kraftig øl. ---

The taste of alcohol gets thru (in the aftertaste). Very price worthy indeed. The taste is better than the palate (because of the aftertaste). Nice with strong Italian cheese (dry Parmesan).

Imprial stout de 10 % abv, en format 35,5 cl. Mon exemplaire tait 8 mois avant sa date, mais il pouvait vieillir allgrement (un peu comme moi ). Couleur noir intense aux reflets violacs, et lopacit quasi totale. Mousse qui se rsume, joliment dailleurs, en des traces artistiques brunes de surface. Armes de chocolat noir, caf, malt torrfi, pointe de brandy. 1re bouche soyeuse, lentame caf en grain/chocolat/malt noir, avec une pointe de fume discrte. Arrire-bouche avec des nuances de bois brl, charbon de bois. 2me aux trs grandes nuances, dont une pointe de baies noires. Arrire-bouche avec des nuances de kirsch au loin. 3me o les nuances liquoreuses se dveloppent. Arrire-bouche qui voque maintenant le caf trs serr. Longueur qui se met travailler le brandy, avec des nuances frisant parfois le barley wine. Jambes huileuses, trs longues. Levure vineuse, trs belle ligne. Alcool trs volontaire, il ne laisse rien passer, travaille la moindre saveur pour la porter sur lautel du dgustateur (qui nen demande pas plus ). Finale aux nuances riches, complexes. CONCLUSION: trs grand imperial stout, aux mrites trs varis, et la qualit de ralisation indniable Du superbe travail ...

Pretty much no smell, gotta smell hard to get some good complexity, tasted sweet and then a little bitter on the Finish, very good boldness, strong heavy mouthfeel... sweet roasted malt with some vanilla maybe and a touch of coffee and liquorice...Got some good diversity...Looks like and as thick as motor oil lol... medium alcohol taste but def feel it as time goes on! Finish is very strong and like liquorice...Hurts the score for me
