Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout
There's a certain bias around these parts towards reviewing good stuff - partially I tend to have excellent taste, but also I've been pretty lucky with high-grade beers. Until this week. Earlier this week at the Yeasayer show, I noticed Local 506 had the Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout available. They call it an "Imperial Stout" but don't be fooled - this is like the bastard child of Xingu and some third-rate Caribbean export stout. It's freaking terrible. Way too sweet, and with an unpleasant aftertaste and mouthfeel to boot. I'll put it in no uncertain terms: seriously kids, DO NOT WANT.
