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.

60 IBU

A: opaque black, I can't see any light though it. has a beautiful tan fluffy head. everything I want a stout to look like.

S: Roasted malt, chocolate, coffee

T: Roasted malt, dark Chocolate , coffee, maybe a little smokie on the finish, coats the mouth very well.

O: Very good brew. well balanced , good aroma, I wouldnt guess this is a 9% ABV. leaves beautiful lacing on the glass as well. This will become a regular in my fridge.
