COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A massive Imperial Stout. The first IS brewed by Revelation Cat. Aged for nearly a year in steel tanks and fermented out to 14% Bottled in 2012 in limited quantity and released slowly throughout the following years. On the bottle: "Black Knight’s sure you’d love to know. But you’re just gonna have to find out ’Cause you’re not gonna get the recipe on the freakin’ bottle And beware of the 14% He’s gonna mess with you" "Keep it Cool and age this beer"

This might be as close to perfection as it gets. Very inviting, mouthwatering aroma, with tar and liquorice. Full of bittersweet flavour, smoke, coffee, tobacco, molasses, warming alcohol. The agiong has probably smoothened out some edges here, you can still feel the 14%, but in a pleasant way. Wow. Giove us more like this.

50cl bottle courtesy of Alex. It pours completely black and oily with a medium tan head. Good lasting foam and some alcohol lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma is rich and indulgent, with dark chocolate and coffe notes, figs, tobacco, nuttiness and port wine. All you could want in an imperial stout. Taste is lightly roasty and bitter but mostly sweet and decadent, perfect for a dessert. Again, dark chocolate, fudge, figs and raisins. With some wood and port wine, which I truly love . Finishes with slightly bitter with toasted coffe beans. Full bodied with a silky oily texture and soft carbonation. The 14% ABV does not overpower the beer and a 50cl bottle split in 2 left both of us craving for more. World class.

Shared by Travlr. Tanks Gene. The beer is black in body, dark brown around the edges. Weak beige head. Nose and flavor both bring a heavy dose of milk chocolate. Smooth feel on the palate. Tasty blend of milk and dark chocolates follow by a delicate roast character. Tasty.
