The Black Chocolate Stout offering from Brooklyn Brewery for the 2005-2006 winter continues a great tradition from this New York Micro. The pour of this ebony stout is the picture of color for a black chocolate stout. The head that forms on the glass is a deep brown that starts strong and fades as the beer sits. The smell has a very malty nose with toasted overtones and a distinct alcohol aroma form the multiple mashing. The taste is bold with a roasted flavor up front fading into a chocolate undertone with distinct alcohol warmth. The selection of hops are ideal for this brew as they do not pronounce themselves in the taste or the aftertaste but keep the sweetness of the beer at a superb balance. This beer has a full-bodied texture that is smooth and satiny. This beer is a great drink to relax and unwind with as the days begin to cool and winter sets in. At over 8% ABV, this is definitely not a session beer; but with a beer such as this, it is difficult to refuse a second.
