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. 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.

olio (10463) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 13, 2017
375 ml bottle.
Pours dark brown, practically black color with a small beige head. Quite intense oaty aroma, lots of roasted malts, dark chocolate, hints of vanilla, subtle hop notes and cocoa. Flavor is also super roasty and bitter malty, dark chocolate, cocoa powder, subtle dark fruit notes on the background, very light honey notes peak through, faint coffee bitterness, lingering bitter dry malt finish. Maybe a bit too oaty overall for my taste but I'd have this for breakfast any day.
