Picked up a sixpack of this when I was in Boston for work. Since we cannot get Brooklyn in WI, I was excited to try this. It pours out very black with a mocha colored head that rises rapidly, but controlled, at the end of the pour. The aroma very heavy on the burnt sugars, molasses, and sweet cocoa nibs. The taste comes through a bit hot on the alcohol and the maltiness shines through. There are definitely major layers of roasted malts, but it becomes a bit messy at times. The flavor is clearly evident but the balance is lacking. I would have liked a little stronger roasted profile to tone down the sweetness. No doubt a nice stout that makes itself known, but I am a bit surprised to see such a widespread love for this with all the other wonderful stouts out there.
