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.

look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours an abundance of tan head with frothy bubbles everywhere. Active body. Strong lace. The foam releases an aroma of strongly roasted malts with chocolate and molasses not far behind.

Dark and malty up front. Big, chewy, creamy body. Hops blast through the malts midway through, and the hoppy bitterness lingers after you swallow. Boozy warmth joins in at the end as well. Not in love with the balance of flavors here here.

A decent effort, but even if this were available in NYC I can't see myself purchasing it when beers like FBS are still on the shelves.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

P: 12 fl oz bottle in to a tulip.

A: SRM is dark brown/black. Nearly opaque. Head is dark tan, 1 in, dissipates to line the rim of the glass. Medium/heavy carbonation. Medium lacing.

S: Deep roasted malt, molasses, and lots of dark fruit notes (raisin, date, fig)

T: Follows nose almost entirely. There is a warm booziness on the aftertaste along with some bittered malt/chocolate tones and a light sweetness.

M: Full bodied. Feels very smooth on the palate, almost velvety. Complexity of ingredients give a big mf. Alcohol adds another layer to the feel.

O: Very interesting and good. I did not think I would like the fruity undertones in this stout, but they work very nicely with the other ingredients.

Pours with a four finger tan head that fades slowly leaving some lace. Black color, no highlights. Medium carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Molasses and chocolate nose and flavor is more molasses with chocolate, then a light burnt molasses aftertaste. Decent imp stout. $3.49 for a 12oz bottle from Julio's Liquors Westborough, Ma. Best by Jul 2013.
