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.

Pours black as night with a nice head. Scents are roasted malt and a bit of chocolate. Somewhat burnt, which brings the score down. Taste is similar to smell but with a good deal of hops. Not excessive but more than I'd like. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel yet more carbonated than most in the style. A solid imperial stout.

2 year aged 12oz bottle into a tulip

dark black pour with a nice big beige head. smell of chocolate, cocoa, dark roasty malts. extremely aromatic. taste is a bit sweet up front and i get a lot of belgian candied sugar...plums, dark fruits. a bit surprising as wasnt expecting this. finish with a nice sweetness too. definitely not a typical american stout. body is medium and carbonation is medium as well, higher than most of the style.

overall unique, impressive!
