Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: WVbeergeek on 07-05-2006

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

This is an Imperial Stout that is of great strength and complexity. We then gently age that beer in Elaigh Craig 13 1/2 year old Bourbon Barrels for 6 months to 1 yr. and then primed and bottled to bottle condition for continued aging and celler life. Black Magick should be able to be aged up to about 5 years, to heighten the complexity and smooth nature of this beer.

First Black Magick brewed in Feb 2007. Released 2009. = 15% ABV

Second Black Magick brewed in 2009 and released 2011. = 15.5% ABV

HUGE thanks to my boy ryanschwam for sending this retired gem my way!

A: poured vigorously into snifter. Pitch black, no head to be found, just an outer ring of foam/lacing around the glass.

S: notes of leather, heavy oak and tobacco, the slightest bit of oxidation and booze.

T: this thing still tastes like a million bucks for the age she has on her! Huge oak and tobacco/leather notes, chocolate/vanilla and noticeable, but super smooth bourbon. I couldn't be more impressed w/ the taste on this one.

M: on the low side, but works well here because the taste just cuts through everything. I'm so blown away by the flavor profile on this beer that everything else has become an afterthought.

O: an incredible treat that I thought I'd never get to experience. The highlight of this one for me, was the taste. A true sipper that's held it's own for the last 5 years and I couldn't be happier to have had the opportunity to enjoy it. Thanks again Ryan!

2011 bottle. Thanks Mikesgroove!

Appearance. Pours thick and black with a very thin orangy brown head that rises up after the pour and fades quickly to a faint ring.

Smell. Wow, much bourbon, so beer! Anyways, ya lots of bourbon, licorice and some dark chocolate, a bit of wood and vanilla.

Taste. Good amount of bourbon again, black licorice, some bakers chocolate in the finish followed by a little bit of bitter oak.

Mouthfeel. Full body, actually quite thick and a little bit sticky on the lips. Very low and smooth carbonation.

Overall. Not the best tasting beer but an enjoyable bourbon bomb. If I was a big bourbon fan this would probably kick more ass.
