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

Black pour thin orange/tan head ended up as just a ring of head light sticky lacing .... aroma of bourbon, oak, vanilla and a little molasses ..... taste is of oak, bourbon, vanilla, light chocolate, light roasted coffee and a molasses to it finishes up with a lingering dry spicy warming abv roasted, bourbony, oaky finish .... a solid imperial stout would def age this to let everything mellow out

12oz bottle from Capone’s, Norristown. Enjoyed with hopsleeroy and a Halloween posse, and certainly seemed tailored to the day. Oily pour, although not especially thick. Virtually no carbonation, and this one’s halfway (at least) to being a liqueur. Huge bourbon nose with sharp wood and anise, a hint of a chocolate base. Mouthfeel is slick and the palate isn’t nearly as hot as I’d feared. Flavors aren’t quite so dominated by bourbon although they certainly do lean heavily in that direction. Bitter chocolate, vanilla from the oak, and the faintest hint of char. Pretty good but I think I’m wearying of this kind of beer.

12 oz. bottle from michael-pollack- thanks, Pollack! Pours a dark, opaque brown with almost no head, just a small beige ring. The aroma initially pops with a port or sherry-like booziness, with dark fruit and anise. As it warms it becomes more bourbon-like, and caramel and vanilla show up. Flavor of caramel, bourbon, oak, anise, dark fruits, and dark malts. Medim-bodied, with a sticky mouthfeel and low to moderate carbonation. Nice sweet bourbon finish. I liked this just a tad more than the Big Black Voodoo Daddy, but I was in the minority in my tasting group.

The Dan Journal #488. 12oz bottle. Pours pitch and opaque with a spiraling khaki head. The initial olfactory is straight alcohol in the nostrils. Followed by dark chocolate, anise, Oreo cookies and faint chicory. Very full bodied with a rather overt alcohol note. Call it boozy, or hot, or whatever; they should have drained just a bit more Elijah Craig before adding the Stout! The barrel aging is noticeable and really adds a creaminess and rounds out the bitterness and astringency. Big and overt, but still a very nice sipper!

Pours black like ink with a nice brown head. Smells of booze, chocolate, vanilla, tabacco, leather and licorice. Taste chocolate, coffee, bourbon, vanilla and molasses. Thick mouthfeel and the finish is vanilla and boozy.

Bottle thanks to my Michigan Crew! Pours an oily black with a dark brown head that dissiapted to the edges and lace slightly. Aroma is full of roasted malts with a good amount of bourbon and a hint of dark chocolate. Flavor starts with booze of bourbon but dissipates in to a slightly bitter dark chocolate finish. Nice and oily.
