A: Dark brown to black virtually opaque beer with a rusty brown foam on the top, with lighter tan notes also in the foam. Chocolate milk lacing.

S: Dark chocolate, cocoa nibs, Russian Imperial Stout all the way. Alcohol present, creamy, sweet, tar, black licorice, overall black and dark. Reminds me of Old Rasputin by North Coast.

T: Wow, it packs a punch. Loaded with flavor. I get all the dark chocolate, sweet notes tar notes, alcohol, black licorice, cocoa nibs. Its really umami, soy sauce, a saline quality there as well, and snow, or almost freezer burn. Slight sour, little bitter. Really complex.

M: Thick syrupy bready body, medium low fine bubbled carbonation.

O: Really enjoying this one which exceeded my expectations. Liking it a lot, comparable to Samuel Smith’s Imperial Stout and Old Rasputin Ale. Think I may like it equally to these. Will give it 9.3 out of 10. Got in Stratford, On, but drank in Kunming China February 17, 2014, a year after purchase and on return from Chiang Mai to China.

Black Chocolate Stout from Brooklyn, a great imperial stout that became an instant favourite.

Almost pitch-black color with a slightly beige head.

Smells nicely of burnt coffee, chocolate and some cascadeish hop tones.

The taste is superior to the smell in this one, really wonderful taste of fudge, caramell, coffee and of course chocolate. The cascade hops (or similar American hops) makes this one stand out. Great mouthfeel.

A great imperial stout, but there are lots of better imperial stous out there!
