beeropolis, i felt the same way about the pennant ale. and that was bought at the brewery istelf. maybe you just got a bad or old batch of the chocolate stout? in my experience the hits have far outnumbered the misses.
i really like the east india pale ale, the brown ale, monster ale, pumpkin ale, and am looking forward to trying the brooklyn local 1.
good for them for making a step in the right direction. that which we can do we ought to do.
