Finally, someone bottled wizard blood! This potion pours black with hints of dark plum which I swear is the magic part. Either that or liquid velour. It smells of cocoa, molasses and super espresso and delivers taste-wise with that and nuts, dark toffee and some peaceful hops, just sitting in an armchair by the fire and letting the malt magic manifest. Feels a bit syrupy but not sickly so.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, some coffee and dark chocolate, some hints of bitterness, and some dough. Flavor the same with a nice blend of the dark malts. Smoother texture. A solid stout.

12 oz bottle. pours deep, dark brown with dark ruby hues. Aroma of cocoa, coffee, a field of hay, touch of smokiness. Flavor is coffee, cocoa, toffee, peat. Has a creamy mouthfeel that gives it a melted mocha shake feel, but far less sweet.
