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.

3.78/5  rDev -4.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

appearance: big black with more than two fingers of off white head. the head is even, long lasting and leaves stringy lacing.

smells wacky. belgian yeast mixed with intense roasted malts, chocolate and a hint of espresso. not sure if me likey or if me no likey.

taste: i just cant get past the yeastiness. heavily roasted malts, chocolate and espresso are hidden behind almost standard belgian "funkyness".

mouthfeel: ridiculously refreshing for its magnitude. it slides down easy and leaves nothing but a chocolatey feel in the back of the throat.

drinkability: try one. it may be a tad expensive but it is definately a unique beer and worth the experience. and even if you dont like the flavor, with 25 oz of a 9.7 you wont be too disappointed.

Serving type: bottle
