COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This hauntingly good brew in your hand is rife with dark complexities. Eleven malts were used to create deep flavors of coffee, chocolate, caramel, and molasses. A hint of bitterness and herbal character from carefully selected American hops help support the monolithic maltiness of Dark Apparition. After a month of conditioning in stainless steel, the beer was transferred into bourbon barrels. For 8 months, Dark Apparition waited patiently in oak barrels until the time was right to spring forth with its ghostly gusto. A truly decadent brew that is intended to be poured into your favorite snifter and given time to warm up from its dark and cold resting place. Be aware when in the presence of Dark Apparition cause this ghost is a creeper.

Draft. A black beer with a brown head. The aroma has notes of bourbon, roasted malt, chocolate, alcohol, and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, bourbon, chocolate, alcohol, and straw, leading to a dry finish.

Szału ni ma, stout gęsty, treściwy, ale anonimowy, nie urywa ani nie zdejmuje niczego, w dodatku butelka 2017 już w czerwcu wydaje się nieco zmęczona (soja)?

Smell of malt, bourbon, coffee and vanilla. Deep red black with very thin tan crown. Taste just like its smell. Unfortunately I drank this after KBS. It gets close. But its a bit less complex, didnt feel the oak barrel as much, could be a bit thicker. Its very good stout beer.

Bottle. Pours black with a minimal, quickly dissipating head. Lots of messy lacing coat the glass half way through. Aromas of bourbon, black licorice, chocolate, caramel, roasty malts, some alcohol after it has warmed. Smells and tastes great. Sweet and really complex malt base. Medium sweet with a light bitterness. Really a wonderful BA stout.

dmac (6211) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - DEC 31, 2016
375ml 11.5% bottle via trade. Poured a medium to slightly fuller pitch black body with an average sized tight foamy deep beige head. Aroma of burnt malts, dark chocolate, vanilla extract, booze, molasses. Flavor is the same. Body is medium to slightly fuller, softer carbonation and loads of heat throughout.
