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

Ungstrup (34703) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2012
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a thin brown head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, roasted malt, bourbon, and a bit of soy sauce. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, soy sauce, roasted malt, and bourbon, leading to a dry alcoholic finish.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2012
Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of Doodler. Pours an opaque pitch black with a tiny beige head. Nose is dominated by heavy booze and tarish roast. Rich, rich body, lowish carbonation, sweet roast, dark dried fruits and quite some roast. Violent boozy finish. Serious stuff indeed but very enjoyable. 030612

Had this a while back at a tasting. Pitch black pour, small tanned head. Big roasty toasty bourbon filled nose that translates right into the flavor as well. Fair amount of dark chocolate notes mixed with vanilla strewn about. Bit overdone on the bourbon, but not necessarily in the most polite way. Thick thick thick! Damn good brew though!

Pours jet black into my bruery tulip. Paper thin head and little to no lacing. Aroma is all bourbon, very hot and boozy I can already tell this need some time in the cellar. Taste follows the nose but finishes with coffee and a lingering vanilla. It’s tasty but I think it would be even better with a year on it.

Big thanks to MikeLovesBeer for sharing this one. This was 10’ vintage I believe. Still hot and could use another year of aging perhaps. Bourbon all over the place. Heavy on the chocolate and sweet malt flavor as well. Overall damn good but would like to see how it ages some.

Voodoo horizontal. A well balanced beer, emphasizing the bitterness of the hops and roasted malt. Chocolate and coffee in the secondary. Smooth, thick mouthfeel. Bourbon, chocolate, roast in the nose. Very dark brown with little head. Rich experience, aging has given it some notes of cognac.

Black as night with a tan head that faded quickly. Aroma is sweet, malty, and all the smells you would associate with a bourbon aged beer. Taste is great as the flavors change and flow wonderfully across the tongue from the start to the finish. My only compliant is the finish is a little boozy and over takes the bourbon flavor at the end that I really want on my tongue. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tons of bourbon in the nose, lots of sweetness ,dark ripe fruits, chocolate, vanilla, residual sugar. Black ass beer with the darkest brown head I have ever seen. Roast, dark and burnt malts, booze, lots of bourbon, really hot but not extremely unpleasant. Could probably have used some age however to tone it down a bit. Sweeter dark malts and residual sugars show up in the end.
