Beer of the Week-Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout



?
Yummy-
the problem is drank the beers so quickly with friends that i didn't have time to "review" the beer-and the 10.0% alcohol level will creep up to you...




Stouts
Ba- "A common profile amongst Stouts, but not in all cases, is the use of roasted barley (unmalted barley that is kilned to the point of being charred) which lends a dry character to the beer as well as a huge roasted flavor that can range from burnt to coffee to chocolate"

Brooklyn's Black Chocolate Stout is a Russian Imperial Stout-The King Of Stouts. In comparison RISs typically contain a dried fruit or chocolate taste. The thick motor oil feel is not for everyone, not even an average Guinness drinker. Check out a bottle next time you are out-you can traditional find these sold as singles at hometown bottle shop.
I recommend testing your sobriety after your second one--better to be safe than sorry!

Cheers!
