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.

While certainly unconventional in its fruity quad like presentation, it still scored points for its excellent textures and heavy malty flavor that balanced the abv very well

go for it if your looking for a changeup stout

Different than a regular imperial stout. It's more like a "Black Quad" or a Belgian Stout or a regular Imperial Russian or American Stout that has been spiked with a little bit of prune juice and red wine. Still, a nice, unique offering; but if you're looking for your strong dark chocolate and coffee notes--typical to stouts--you're probably better off looking elsewhere.
