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

Poured charcoal black with 2.5 fingers of frothy cinnamonhead. Great retention and spotty lacing.

Great aromas of booze, chocolate, roasted malt, Belgian yeast, dark fruits and some molasses.

Taste follows the nose. Sweet Belgian yeast, chocolate and dark fruits are the big players. Subtle notes of molasses on the back end.

The mouthfeel is a little thin for my taste... Really the only thing I can dock this beer on. A decent amount of carbonation with a semi sweet after taste.

Overall, this was a tasty stout. With a little more body this could be an exceptional beer. Glad I picked this one up for sure.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Jet black. Two-finger bubbly mocha colored head with decent retention.

S: Big aromas of molasses, toffee, espresso beans, smoke and caramel. Lighter notes of vanilla, bittersweet chocolate and cherry follow.

T/M: Strong molasses flavor on the initial sip. Deep roasted espresso and dark chocolates follow with tones of vanilla and dark fruits, such as raspberries and cherries. Oak, wood and smokey flavors emerge quickly. Alcohol bite along with the heavy tone of molasses is heavy. Sweet, milky and boozy. Mildly bubbly mouthfeel. Medium body with medium carbonation.

D: A bit overly sweet for my personal taste, but a well executed American stout.
