OVERALL RATING:

Sight: Opaque, near black in color; or, more appropriately, dark chocolate.  1 1/2-inch dense but frothy head, mocha in color.

Scent: Like a dark chocolate-covered cherry!

Flavor:  Bittersweet initially, but the bitterness melts away as it rests.  The chocolate is definitely more of a semi-sweet or Baker’s chocolate.  There are also notes of coffee, even chicory.

Feel:  Creamy and thick.  Low-to-moderate carbonation, with a tickle at the end.

Concluding remarksThe Black Chocolate Stout, one of Brooklyn Brewery’s winter seasonals, is dubbed “famous” and “award-winning” by the brewery…and we can see why.  This tasty beer gets an award of 4-and-a-half Pint Glasses from us; although, if it tasted as good as it smelled, it’d probably earn a full 5.

It should be noted, also, that we went back for seconds. And that’s saying a lot, considering we were at a beer bar with a number of rare Belgians on tap that night.
