Brooklyn “Black Chocolate Stout”
Brooklyn Brewery – Brooklyn, New York USA
Imperial Stout (ABV 10%)

[Best served in a Snifter]

Rating: 4.3/5.0

Aroma: 8/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 9/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 18/20

The pour was jet black with an average sized (1-2 finger) medium brown rocky head that diminished slowly down to a few puddles of residue left floating on top, which allowed some nice sheeting of lace on the glass.

The aroma was robust and tantalizing with roasted black malts, a mild resin hop and a bitter leathery yeast with notes of bitter-sweet chocolate, molasses, dark roasted coffee, a smidgen of dark fruit and a nice dose of alcohol.

The taste was boldly malty and lightly sweet with notes of chocolate and molasses at first and finished with a nice bitter mocha coffee flavor and had a smooth alcohol ending. The flavor stuck around for a nice long time letting the alcohol fade and the mocha coffee taste linger on.

Mouthfeel was thick and full in body and creamy, oily and a bit dry in texture with a nice lively carbonation.

Overall a superbly blended brew that combines a great chocolate and coffee flavor, with a nice alcohol warming sensation.
