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.

I'm not gonna say too much about this. I drank all 4 in the pack hoping it'd warm up to me, it didn't. Way, way, way too sweet. I don't find it very deep either, though as stated on the label it does finish with a slight smokey feel and flavor. To me, it hits me with so much VERY sweet raisin/black currant that I can't enjoy this. It's very sugary and rich and I feel like if I dropped a bit on my computer desk it'd be sticky within 20 minutes. Something about this beer is very viscous. It's incredibly rich like a good stout, but somehow doesn't taste like one. Anyway, just my opinion. I'm glad everyone else enjoyed it enough.
