Brooklyn Brewery's Black Chocolate Stout 2015.
In this review I will be looking at the 2015 release of Brooklyn Brewery's Black Chocolate Stout. This beer is an American imperial stout that is brewed with two-row pale malt, caramel malt, malted wheat and posted American malts and barleys. The alcohol by volume of the beer comes in at 10.00%. The International bitterness units of the stout are 51. Well without any further delay lets get into the look, smell, taste, and feel of Brooklyn Brewery's 2015 Black Chocolate Stout.
The "look" of the beer is a total black out. The look is very much like motor oil in a glass. No light gets thought this beer when in the glass, or even around the sides of the glass. There was a minimal creamy tan/brownish head to the beer, which faded quickly. Overall score the look of this beer is a 5 out of 5 stars
The smell can be described as a massive chocolate blast to the nose. Heavy roasted malts, dark fruits, and coffee.
The "taste" can be defined as chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate. If you love chocolate, this is your kind of beer. There was also notes roasted coffee, almost espresso with hints of dark fruits. The roasted malts and barley are also very noticeable on the palate. A side note, the alcohol is well hidden especially for a 10.00% beer. Overall the taste of this beer is a 4 out of 5 stars
The "feel" was one that is rich and creamy, almost like velvet on the palate. Coats the mouth very well and leaves a long lasting finish. Overall this beer scores a 4 out of 5 stars
Overall the Brooklyn Brewery's Black Chocolate Stout is a great beer. Brooklyn Brewery has produced a great expression of the American imperial stout style that is bursting with flavor and fell. Overall I would give this beer a score of 92 out of 100. It is an outstanding beer that you should pick up if you see it.
