Details

Brooklyn Brewery was started in 1987 by former Associated Press correspondent Steve Hindy and former Chemical Bank lending officer Tom Potter. The label design and company logo were created by the world renowned designer, Milton Glaser, best known for the 'I Love NY' logo.

Months of aging and a gorgeous blend of six malts give the Brooklyn Black Chocolate Imperial Stout its intense rich fullness. Whilst already everything you’d ever want in an Imperial Stout, this well-crafted beauty from Brooklyn Brewery will improve and transform in the bottle for many years to come.

Predictably, the deep black-coloured Russian Imperial Stout has intense aromas and flavours of dark chocolate, brown sugar, molasses and a subtle roasted character. Smooth, full and creamy, the Black Chocolate Imperial Stout is absolutely outstanding–especially alongside a cheeky piece of chocolate cake.

Brewery Info

Originally one of America’s foremost brewing centres thanks to its large German population, the last Brooklyn-based brewery closed in 1976 in the face of overwhelming competition from bigger Midwest breweries and consumer preference (at the time) for light pilsner beers.

Brooklyn resident Steve Hindy made it his mission to reignite brewing in the area, and in 1984 founded Brooklyn Brewery with the goal of bringing good beer back to New York City. Now headed up by Brewmaster, beer author and all-round beer icon Garrett Oliver, Brooklyn Brewery has become an international beacon for good beer.

I first had this stout a few years ago when I got it in a stout variety pack and out of a box of great beers, this one stood out by miles, its just like drinking a dessert, this definitely isnt a beer you could drink a lot of, it's a beer you can just sit and drink slowly and appreciate it for what it is. It also has a slight heat from the high alcohol content which makes it perfect for those dark winter nights. Will definitely be buying in more of these and the service from beer hawk is fantastic.
Dark and delicious
