Brooklyn Blackout (ice cream)

Steve’s Ice Cream of Brooklyn introduced a flavor in 2011 called “Bklyn Blackout.” The ice cream—an homage to Brooklyn’s famous blackout cake—is described as “Milk Chocolate Ice Cream Swirled with Chocolate Stout Cake Pieces and Dark Chocolate Pudding.”

I started my day off with a free scoop of decadently rich Brooklyn Blackout ice cream courtesy of our friends at Steve’s Ice Cream, then went in search of something more substantial.

Steve’s Craft Ice Cream “Bklyn Blackout” 11-09-2011
The flavor I tried was called “Bklyn Blackout,“which was consisted of milk chocolate ice cream swirled with Brooklyn’s Ovenly’s chocolate stout cake pieces and dark chocolate pudding. The milk chocolate ice cream was heavenly creamy that reminded me of Blue Marble. I couldn’t quite get a taste of pudding, but the prominent flavor of dark chocolate was present. I felt that some of the cake chunks were rather large, resulted in a few dry bites, but overall, it had an exquisite flavor and texture combination of luscious ice cream and dark chocolate. It is less sweet and more refined than Ben and Jerry’s, and if you are dissatisfied with Blue Marble’s lack of chunks, you would be very happy with Steve’s.

Brooklyn Blackout is more the chocolate-on-chocolate fantasy of our childhood dreams. With dark chocolate pudding swirls and large pieces of Ovenly’s chocolate stout cake, the ice cream comes off as a sophisticated Ben & Jerry’s pint (or maybe just a slightly better one) as it combines flavorful ice cream with equally bold mix-ins.

Described as an homage to the famous Brooklyn Blackout Cake, this ice cream does one of those things that you wish all ice creams would do: mix in good stuff within good-er stuff. It should be noted that my favorite ice cream is Cookies and Cream, so it should come to no surprise that I enjoyed this cake and cream flavor.
The bites without cakes are swirled with chocolate pudding which duh, chocolate pudding definitely belongs in ice cream but it goes with the good and good-er rule. But the bites with cake?
Ohhhh the bites with cake.

It’s the bits of chocolate stout cake (baked by Ovenly!) that makes this Brooklyn Blackout ice cream stand out. At first I was expect little cake chunks, but instead you get bits, lots and lots of little bits swirled into a creamy milk chocolate ice cream. (They used to do it with larger pieces of cake.) Each spoonful guarantees a dose of that boozy cake, and the occasional spoonful also captures swirls of a velvety dark chocolate pudding. Like the name, this is straight-up Brooklyn blackout cake…in ice cream form. Easy to covet, even during winter.
