Overall: This is Brooklyn’s winter seasonal release and it is somewhat different from year to year. I anxiously look forward to this yearly release. This year’s version is outstanding! There is so much dark chocolate and coffee flavor it is hard to believe this is a beer. The chocolate malt flavors I get really draw me to consume this beer faster than normal beer they taste so good! But at 10% ABV, you have to take it a little slow. Buy a 4 PK to drink now and one to age. The brew ages with the best of them. If you only get one winter seasonal beer this year, make it this one.
