COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The beer so nice they named it twice. The only (known) incarnation of Siberian Black Magic Panther Imperial Stout has been this one, a draft-only version aged in Laird’s Apple Brandy Barrels. Even that has only popped up at a handful of special events. To say folks have raved about it would be an understatement.

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2015
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours Dark Lord-black with a small, creamy, chocolate milk head. Decent retention. The roasty, lightly fruity aroma features a sinful collection of charcoal, fudge, pouch tobacco and apple brandy. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. The flavor offers roasty-sweet notes of fudge, charcoal and pouch tobacco. Finishes deeply roasted with a light splash of crusted port. I wonder if this is the base beer for Mexican Cake. Another world-class beer brewed by the dangerous minds at Westbrook and shared with the south Florida crew by ctipping!

Bacterial (2714) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle shared by AJ and Ryan - thanks!! Dark thick black pour with just s slight dark tan head. Big malty nose, slight apple nose. Smooth, every flavor working together. Sweet boozy finish. Fantastic.

wchesser (1807) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Killer bottle from Westmeister-thanks, man! Thick and dark with no head or lacing. Nose of dark dried fruits, light brandy, dark and burnt malts. Super smooth especially given the alcohol. Prune, light ash, vanilla, chocolate, calvados like sweetness, but light. Top notch.
