COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an Imperial Stout that is of great strength and complexity. We then gently age that beer in Elijah 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 cellar life. Black Magick should be able to be aged up to about 5 years, to heighten the complexity and smooth nature of this beer.

Opaque black - brown beer, tan head. Dark malt and dark chocolate nose with an unfortunate whiff of paint. Light palate with moderate carbonation. Taste follows the nose and that includes that emulsion paint tone that some barrel aged beers suffer from. A little bourbon underneath but the paint overwhelms and I didn’t enjoy this at all.

Travlr (12994) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Bottle. Very dark brown. Aroma is boozy chocolate, balsamic vinegar. Taste is boozy chocolate also, smooth but with a bit of bite at the finish. Nice.

Oakes (12777) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 27, 2009
Oily and very dark brown. No head. The aroma is alcohol, burnt plums, prunes. Like a boozy, way oversimplified Expedition. Thick, viscous with a rich marmitey, pruney character. It’s burly and has some unique qualities but overall there isn’t that much to recommend.
