Just back from Cali but reviewing a beer from the other coast!

I was excited to see this beer back at the LCBO this winter.  We seem to be doing pretty good at getting Brooklyn Breweries beers in the LCBO this year.

About the Beer – It poured ink black with a decent head.  The aroma was very roasted with hits of chocolate and coffee.  Just about what I would have expected.  The flavour is BIG.  Lots of coffee and bitter chocolate followed by a pretty big hit of alcohol.  It was well carbonated.

Would I Drink it Again? – Yes, I had quite a few last winter!

P.S. It tasted surprisingly good with a peppercorn steak.
