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.

Rami Rami is drinking a Dark Apparition by Jackie O’s Pub & Brewery at Chmielarnia Marszałkowska Slodziutkie, dosc lekkie, nieco zbozowe, melasa jest, alko sups schowane, mila palonosc. Moglbym powtarzac, takie do picia bardziej niz cmokania

Not that bad. Pitch black with small to moderate, light brown head. In aroma and taste moderate level of molasses, chocolate, very roasted, light to moderate hoppy notes. Moderate to light heavy bitter. Some earthy character. In overall nice, roasted, malts based beer. Very complex..

Aroma: roasted grain, dark malts, with notes of chocolate, coffee, toasted toffee, caramel, supported with notes of dark fruit esters. Flavour follows aroma: intense malt flavors with notes mentioned above, supported with molasses, dark fruit esters...slightly bitter finish. Full body, smooth texture, low to moderate carbonation.

Bottle poured into a teku showing translucent coffee and no head. The nose shows sweet dark malts. The palate is medium bodied and lightly carbonated. Flavors of strongly roasted, practically burnt, dark malt. Strong burnt bitterness on the finish. Not much else.

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

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2017 Bourbon power. Chocolate - dark, unsweetened, really long aftertaste of it. Less coffee. Some vanilla. Roasty finish. BOOZY and warming. Good texture and body. Well done.

Pours dark brown with lasting tan lacing. Aroma is coffee and chocolate. Flavor is unsweetened chocolate and coffee. It warms all the way down. Very nice.

muzzlehatch (4959) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - APR 6, 2017
375 ml bottle from Winerak Market in Zanesville, OH, served slightly below cellar temp in a Maudite glass. Opaque, black (what else?) with a fully lasting smallish light tan head...lightly smoky touches in an aroma that predominantly carries dark berries (blue/black), molasses, a touch of pepper, and strong chocolate, with a bit of caramel, lighter sweetness wafting in several minutes in....on the tongue it’s fairly strongly bitter throughout, chocolaty, with a fair bit of sweetness upfront, some of that smokiness and toastiness coming in at the quite intense, tarry-bitter finish...smooth, decadent, full mouthfeel, not quite velvet perhaps, maybe satin is closer? moderate to low carbonation; this is a fine Impy though on the whole it isn’t perhaps distinctive enough to stand with the best. Still a fine choice on a surprisingly cold night...
