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!

Pours a deep black in color, as the label would indicate. One finger of tan brown head sticks around and leaves a pleasant lacing. This beer smells like fire, but that is most likely due to the fire and not the beer itself. The dark rich malt and roasty scents balance well with the pleasant burning wood aromas. The flavor is deep and varied, developing well over the palate. In the front comes the malt, followed by the semi sweet chocolate and rounded off with a gentle bitterness from the hops. The mouthfeel is not quite as creamy as I would like for a stout, but the otherwise overall excellent quality of this brew compensates for that. Definitely recommended.

Cheers, Matt
