COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Filled with the howling of black dogs that haunt the long forgotten shadows of the human soul.

Our inky-black stout had a smooth, round palate with a dreamlike undercurrent of bittersweet chocolate. This dense liquid-silk summoned hope from hibernation and balanced winterís endless white snows with a rich swirl of creamy black rapture.

Tonkun (867) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle. Dark pour with slight visibility at the head. A finger of mocha head. Coal, sweet soda, espresso. Slightly bitter, lighter than expected body and tannic and acidic finish. Not bad but not too impressed

Jayseppi (154) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 29, 2013
Inky black body below a wispy beige head. The aroma is very roast forward, molasses and a hint of soy sauce, A lot of roast in the flavour as well. There is definite coffee notes going on as well with some molasses and soy again, working in the background. A little over carbonated for my palate, could be improved on tap I imagine. Tasty stout when itís cold outside. - 2012 bottle

Fatehunter (1205) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Pours two and half fingers of head on a pitch black body. The aroma is roasted malt, molasses, milk and a little wood. The taste is a little earthy, more roasted malt and a little chocolate. Mild bitter note on the finish. The texture is fairly smooth with a little fizz. Pretty good. I enjoyed the smooth texture and great appearance.

dionysus (1448) - Arizona, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Bottle pours deep brown/black with a tan rocky head. Aroma shows a lot of roast with an underlying sweetness of chocolate and caramel. Flavors of coffee, dark chocolate, ash, and a touch of vanilla. Overall body is light to moderate and finishes with light roasted bitterness. A little more body would probably do wonders for this brew.

bkurtz (785) - PERU - DEC 26, 2013
Pours an opaque dark with a nice off-white head. Great aromas of roasted malts, coffee & chocolate. The taste is a little thin, but a another well-brewed beer from Magic Hat.

Voodoo (311) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Pours an opaque brown with a thin off white head which disappears quickly. Aroma of coffee, chocolate. Taste is creamy smooth as if oatmeal is in the mix, coffee taste, slight chocolate hints, touch of smoke. Suffers a bit from a thin mouthfeel.
