I have had this beer before, and while it doesn’t really taste like chocolate I still love this brew. Not only does it have a HUGE ABV, but I like pretty much everything they make at Brooklyn. Even though this particular beer isn’t made at the actual brewery, it still has their name on it. Plus, I like stouts!

The beer is extremely black, and has a sweet and tempting nose. It smells like what a Guinness looks like it should smell like. (I hate Guinness, just so you know.) It makes me want to be outdoors, or staring out over the mountain tops in a cabin out west. Smell it… tell me you don’t smell that cabin!

The taste is incredible. Starts off smooth, then gets a touch carbonated on the back of the palate. Then… wait for it… it explodes across the back of your mouth leaving you with a dry aftertaste. But the aftertaste is great. It has a certain dark fruit note to it… almost like I just ate a pile of burnt cranberries. But that’s okay… the aftertaste is what brings me back for another sip.

You would never know this beer had 10% ABV. It doesn’t taste that way at all. You don’t smell, or taste the alcohol. Back to the aftertaste; it never leaves. It just sits there. Apparently the folks at Brooklyn want this beer to be drinkable, not one you would sip. They have succeeded at that. Also hear that the longer you leave this in the bottle, the better it tastes and the more chocolate flavor will come out of the beer. It’s a great beer, that’s for sure. A true stout, and one that I wish more breweries would model their stouts after. Well done Brooklyn!
