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.

Bottle from a trade. Many thanks! Vintage 2014. Black colour, brown foam. Medium carbonation. Bitter and roasty stout with notes of coffee. Bitter hoppy finish. Light sweetness. Well balanced. Good!

Dark cola colored pour with cocoa colored head that quickly dissipates (unfortunately). Sweet chocolate, roasted barley, faint bitterness, alcohol warmth, molasses, dark fruits. Good stuff.

backlog. bottle. Black. Aroma is melasses, roast, dried fruit, dark chocolate. Nice mouthfeel, full bodied, nice sipper.

Coarse nougat colored and persistent foam. It is brewed with 7 malt varieties and smells wonderful coffee and dark chocolate. The taste is most influenced by the coffee and black pepper, but it also has a taste of brown sugar, chocolate and caramelt. At the bottom of the palate you will find raisins and other dried fruits and a little vanilla. Gradation is high and tasting a hint of alcohol toward the end. The hops are composed of European and American hops and provides long and heavy aftertaste. It is a tasty and elegant imperial stout, but it sets no new standards for the type that you have not tasted before.

12oz bottle pours a thick black color without any head. Lots of molasses. It smooths out with some time to breath. Mild hops noticeable at the end.

Jet black in color with a nice brownish tan head. Notes of coffee, chocolate and heavy on the molasses. Light happiness and easy on the carbonation. One of the finest imperial stouts I’ve tried. I’ll be buying many more of these!
