Stout Week: Day 4 - Brooklyn Chocolate Stout

89 / 100

I keep liking all these stouts as you can see. This one I acquired in a trade from someone on the East Coast. I remember drinking this back in my eastside days. It's pretty damn good.

This combines the best of the Russian Imperial Stout and the Sweet Stout to one particular thick and creamy tasty beer. It's thick and resiny, with a slight cappuccino head. Dark chocolate and espresso dominate the nose. Very full with little subtleties. The taste is quite filling - full of the chocolate and coffee flavors with some roasted malt and even a bite of vanilla.

This has become an East Coast classic. Worth looking for this one.

How did you get the Brooklyn out in LA?

Nice blog, by the way. Love the reviews of SD beers. I was just down there last month. So many good beers.

you knows you like the black chocolate! : P
