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.

Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. Bottleneck says

A- Pours a fully opaque black color with a 1/2 inch light brown head that retains well before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a half sheet of surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves a jagged ring behind.

S- Very pleasant dark roast aroma brings notes of dark chocolate, caramel and some char. Moderate booze smell.

T- The mouthfeel leads me to believe I'm going to get a lot of creamy chocolate in the flavor but there's more bitter dark roast and char than sweetness or chocolate. There's even a solid dose of hop bitterness in there. Alcohol is not nearly as noticeable as in the aroma.

M- Creamy and slick with medium carbonation and a full body.

O- This is a drier double stout but still very enjoyable. Wins points for uniqueness and complexity.
