This is an Imperial Stout that is of great strength and complexity. We then gently age that beer in Elaigh Craig 13 1/2 year old Bourbon Barrels for 6 months to 1 yr. and then primed and bottled to bottle condition for continued aging and celler life. Black Magick should be able to be aged up to about 5 years, to heighten the complexity and smooth nature of this beer. First Black Magick brewed in Feb 2007. Released 2009. = 15% ABV Second Black Magick brewed in 2009 and released 2011. = 15.5% ABV

From the bottle. Black pour with a small brown head. Big booziness to it, way to much excess alcohol. The flavor underneath was delicious, dark chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, and a hint of raisin. Body is thick and viscous. The booziness of this really killed it though, hot vodka like burn throughout.

Sampled courtesy of Pepsican. This pours a pitch black color with wine legs on the glass in place of lace. The aroma is huge and has plenty of bourbon and a nice ash character. The flavor has good bourbon and balsamic vinegar notes very sweet and roasty. This has a nice silky mouth feel. A very cool beer.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 28, 2009
Shared by pepsican. Poured an opaque black color with a brown head. Smelled boozy, kind of like a liqueuer. Whiffs of vanilla, fig, and prune greeted the nose. Full bodied and slightly sweet with light roasty bitterness. Rich flavors of dark fruit, molasses, and roasted malt emerged. There was a warming alcohol effect that peaked at the end and was accompanied by a hint of scotch flavor. Good stuff.

12 ounce bottle form kramer. Pours dense pitch black with a short lived fudgey dark brown head. The bourbon flavor is very robust and quite nice. There’s plenty of oaky vanilla for everybody. The stout seems more chocolaty than anything, but this it very much a bourbon delivery device. Big oily palate with a long hot finish. This is a pretty enjoyable beer, but not a world beater.

12oz bottle from hopdog. Thick black color. Lots of bourbon. Very malty. Nice dryish finish. Lightly sweetish. A little bit of autolysis.

12oz bottle courtesy of vwcraig. The first whiff is actually pretty nice and reminiscent of Goose Island Bourbon County Stout. Booze, chocolate cake, booze, alcohol and booze dominate the flavor and the aroma. The consistency is syrupy at times. This beer has good enough flavor and aroma if you can get past the high ABV which I cannot. I guess I juts don’t really see the point of a 15% beer when 10% would work so much better on many levels.

12oz bottle from a recent trade..... pours a dull close to black pour with a non-existent head.... aroma is hugely bourbon-laden and green apple.... flavors are huge on the bourbon and not completely sweet. finishes a bit sour while the middle was on the sweet soy side. minimally carbonized. finish is a bit hot...

Bottle shared by wetherel with Katie, Jon and myself at our place in Del Mar. Thanks John! Still, oily black appearance. Not much carbonation. Aroma is slammed with bourbon whiskey and charred oak wood. Pretty damn strong, nearly caustic. Nose seemed like it had a bit of oxidation, though Im not sure. Flavor is saucy bourbon with a mild tartness mixed with more burnt wood. Overal its a bit overwhelming. Kind of an oily mouthfeel, that ends dry when the bourbon fire goes out. Pretty gnarly stuff, but if you like bourbon like I do, its pretty good.
