Sampled from a 12oz bottle with the wrapped neck label that reads ?Limited Bottling ? Winter 03-04?. No freshness date or strength listed.
Appearance: Brooklyn Black is a misnomer. Brooklyn "Void of Light" or "Black Hole" Chocolate Stout would be more appropriate. Light simply vanishes in the creamy void. The only light comes from the cocoa colored, cream head. Good lacing and great retention.
Smell: Simple, but effective. Overly roasted, almost burnt, not quite toasted malt with dark, unsweetened chocolate.
Taste: Mythical, stuff borne of legends. This elixir enters the mouth as an invading horde of burnt malt and dark chocolate, quickly supressing all with its rich, thick, chewy body and flavors. As if a heat source in itself, it warms the mouth and body with alcohol and tastes as if someone had roasted the malt and melted the dark chocolate in your mouth.
Mouthfeel: Thick, dominating and yet smooth and creamy. Solid and liquid all at the same time. Wonderous.
Drinkability: As long as your not driving it is suppurb. Fill this the body, mind, and soul with a warmness and bliss rarely found in a brew.
Serving type: bottle
