BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Boulevard Brewing Co.

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.

BEST BY 05/18/14

A: Pours a near pitch black color with 2 fingers worth of head that reduces to a cap after a few minutes

S: Fruity Belgian yeast, roasted malts, chocolate, molasses, coffee, and a hint of spicy hops

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with dark fruits, roasted malts, and molasses and moves into chocolate, coffee, tobacco, leather, and a very light hint of spicy hops. Finishes with a light smokiness from the roast

M: Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Soft and creamy

O: A very good imperial stout with lots of complexity. From the Belgian yeast to the roasted malts, there is just about anything you could want in a non-BBA imperial stout. Great value as well, at $10.99 for a 4-pack
