Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout

Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout

Brooklyn Brewery
Brooklyn, New York

Grade: A-
ABV: 10%
Style: Imperial Stout
Serve in: Snifter

If you pick up a couple of these beers, beware that this is not your normal stout. At 10% alc/vol, this is a powerful beer.

It pours a pitch black, with a beautiful mocha head and an aroma of dark bitter chocolate and espresso.

The taste is a nice blend of burnt chocolate and coffee, lots of roasted barley and some dark fruits, akin to figs, in the finish. Low carbonation but full-bodied and incredibly smooth and creamy. The alcohol shows up a little but in the bitter coffee finish, and you can definitely start to feel it throughout your body after a couple of sips.

I love this beer. It’s a complex kick in the ass, enticing you with the right amount of sweetness but then evolving into a dry and roasted finish.
