Notes/Commercial Description:
Throughout the ages, man has been fascinated by the quest for hidden knowledge, the search for the secret to transforming the elemental into the extraordinary, the simple into the sublime. Ladies and gentlemen, we present for your consideration this exotic, inky concoction, the almost magical creation of our modern day alchemists who have turned humble grains—barley, wheat, rye, and oats—into black, liquid gold. Layers of complex flavors slowly emerge from the glass: espresso, roasted fig, crème brulée. Belgian yeast provides a plum-like fruitiness, noble German hops reveal spicy, herbal notes, while the rich, velvety mouthfeel mellows to a dry, smoky finish.

Thanks to Springdogg for the bottle.

A- Pours almost black with a 1 finger head. Dark ruby when held up to the light. Almost no light getting through this one. Seems a bit thin when poured.

S- Sweet chocolate malt and belgian candy sugar. Mild hops coming through with hints of dark fruits and roasted grain

T- Upfront chocolate sweetness that turns into a bready belgian-esque flavor. Lots of chocolate with plum and raisin. Dry aftertaste that seems a bit astringent.

M- Decent. Too much carbonation for me on this one. It's a slight distraction. Still creamy nonetheless and more and more enjoyable as it warms.

D- I drank the whole bottle myself. It's better if you share this hefty one w/ a friend, as the abv shows up as it warms. Still was a very enjoyable beer.
