Black Magic is a well balanced beer that puts stout characteristics at the front and compliments it with the addition of fresh Michigan black raspberries, which unlike reds are only available in July. The flavor starts out showcasing the roasted malts that define a good stout, then carried up by the sour sweet flavors of fresh black raspberries, and then finished with the delightful warming taste of gourmet chocolate. It’s a seasonal specialty, a wonderful dessert beer whether you are craving a fruit beer or a stout. (ABV 5.80%)

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Tap at tasting room: Nearly opaque with amber highlights around the edges, small frothy head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of roast, ash, toast, caramel, tobacco, leather and earthiness yeast esters along with just a slight nose of black raspberry. The taste is pretty much your basic stout, toasty and charred with some coffee and chocolate influences. Herbal and grassy bitterness peaks about and you got a bit of twangy fruit acidity on the back of palate, some tannin notes too. The mouth feel is light to medium bodied with an ashy dry almost woody finish. Well a solid enough stout but I was expecting much more, more fruit and more chocolate character. I was told that the keg the weekend before at the fest displayed a much stronger Black Raspberry profile. I wish I would have gotten that. (STOUTIE RATING # 1111)
