Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BradLikesBrew on 02-28-2010

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.

Pours out pitch black with a huge mocha head. Decent lacing.

Dark chocolate, plum, earth and a hint of booze.

Chocolate, toasted pumpernickel bread and dark fruit start this beast off. Earthy and grassy hops balance it and give it a nice bitter balance. Alcohol shows up as it warms, but it never overwhelms. Thick and smooth, on a touch too much carbonation.

For the price this is one hell of a brew! Might even hit my top 5 traditional imperial stouts. You want the dark truth, this beer is awesome!
