A - arrived as a jet black color with a frothy tan head.
S - chocolate and a bit of coffee and brown sugar.
T - As the name would imply, chocolate is the main attraction here. A healthy amount of bitter, roasty dark chocolate flavor with some coffee and brown sugar. In my opinion, the light sweetness is well-balanced by the roast and the hops. I wouldn't ask for more sweetness or for less. This stout is well-balanced overall with no real rough edges. A bit of booziness at the end if you sip it too fast, but this is to be expected from an imperial stout on tap.
M - nice body without being too heavy. I would be interested in trying a nitro version of this stout if such a thing actually existed.
Overall - this is a great, well-balanced stout. I can't say I'm too keen on the traditional flavor-hammer imperial stouts, so if you're a huge stout fan maybe you shouldn't take my review at face value. But I really like how Brooklyn BCS balances the chocolate flavor with everything else going on. Enjoy.
Serving type: on-tap
