My second out of 4-pack of 2011 Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout.
One year on it. Poured from a 12 oz bottle into my large snifter.
Very thick, dark brown colored pour. Pitch black inside the glass. Dark and opaque. A shining brown colored fluffy one finger thick head that slowly dissipates into a thin shining ring. Awesome lacing. Bubbles not to be seen.
Aroma: Toned down alcohol, i would assume. Well mixed with dark roasted malts and chocolate aroma. Very slight caramel. Some hop-alcohol mixed nose that is typical of Russian Imperial Stouts.
Taste: Roasted malts and dark chocolate taste. Some slight bitterness, that i would assume is subdued due to age on this one. Sweet-bitter dry finish. Alcohol is not felt as much as it contains. Less of burnt up malt flavor.
Mouth feel: Full bodied yet very drinkable thinness feel. Moderate carbonation. Slight alcohol derived astringency.
One more brew that makes Russian Imperial Stouts so reputable and likable.
