Black Chocolate Stout – Brooklyn Brewery

Our featured beer for January 2019 comes from New York City’s Brooklyn Brewery – Black Chocolate Stout.

Additionally, two types of hops and an ABV of 10.0% complete this Russian Imperial Stout.

Brooklyn Brewery suggests this malty high alcohol brew is a good candidate for cellaring, or pairing with deserts, potent cheese and keeping warm.
