Brooklyn Black Chocolate stout is a very dark stout with a brown- colored head of foam and a nose of roasted malt, dark chocolate, caramel, and alcohol. Generous amounts of lacing are left as you drink and the physical appearance alone makes this beer stand out in a crowd.
But beauty of appearance is only the beginning. Take a sip and you will experience the delectable flavors of roasted malt, chocolate, some coffee, caramel, smoke, even hints of vanilla and dark fruit. The body of the beer is thick and creamy, and the beer is bitter overall.
Dark, decadent, and delightful, Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout is still one of my old- time favorites and an excellent example of the Russian Imperial Stout style. Hundreds of craft breweries have created imperial stouts of their own over the past few years, but this is still one of my favorites from the older, more established craft breweries. I like the roasted malt and chocolate character and the bitterness, while obvious, isn’t offensive in any way and knows how to keep itself behaved.
I love chocolate and I love stout so Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout is an easy winner in my book. I still love indulging in a few bottles from time to time and I still rank it among my favorites. Grab some for yourself and tantalize your senses.
