Ale #4 Black Chocolate Stout - Brooklyn Brewery
Aroma: Rich chocolate
Flavour: Chocolate, Bittersweet, Malty.
Style: Imperial Stout
Why it's on here: After ending up at North bar in Leeds after an evenings drinking and on the hunt for a nightcap, a pleasant discussion with one of the bar staff lead me to this beer. The stout is incredibly rich with a deep chocolate flavour. It is brewed during the winter season - October to March and uses 6 varieties of chocolate and roasted malts. At 10% abv its definitely not a session beer and best saved for a nightcap to put the final nail in the hangover the next morning.
