A Winter Beer Well Worth the Price

Brooklyn Brewery's Black Chocolate Stout
Dark chocolate beer will warm you up in winter months.
A perfect pour of Brooklyn Brewery's Black Chocolate Stout.

This iconic Russian Imperial Stout has been a standout in the Brooklyn portfolio since it was first brewed in 1994. Rich and luxurious with velvety notes of dark chocolate, you would be surprised that no actual chocolate is used in brewing it—it achieves its dark chocolate aroma and flavor through the artful blending of six malts and three different mashes. An excellent dessert beer that hides its potent 10% ABV well, Black Chocolate Stout is available in six-packs from October through March and retails for around $13.99. Well worth it!
