Brewed by:
Boulevard Brewing Co.
Missouri, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.70%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Jet black with quite the tan foam head on top-almost too much carbonation took 3 pours to get it into my imperial pint glass. Deep roasted/espresso aroma. Very india ink like. Strong roasted and grain flavors. Sulfury and yeasty tasting. Plums/dried fruit/black currants. Nice full and somewhat smooth mouthfeel-lingering acrid bite to it. enjoyable enough. Lacks the smoothness and finesse to make it a bit more enjoyable and drinkable.
