COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Say hello to the Bearded Lady, our uncompromisingly big and beautiful Imperial Stout. Born from our Dark Arts recipe she uses masses of magical malts to deliver deep chocolate, rich coffee and vinous berry flavours all complemented by a balanced yet subtly spicy hop profile. Powerful, robust, intriguing; yet decadently smooth and sumptuous, the lady demands respect…

ClarkVV (6700) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 13, 2017
Draught at Oliver Twist, 11/28/16.
Pitch black body shows light clarity on the edges and a fluffy, dark beige-to-tan head with moderate retention.
I’m always extremely nervous ordering beers over 7 or 8% and especially ones this high but I really enjoyed the first Magic Rock I had so I figured I’d suck it up and get the 8oz pour. The nose is rich with cocoa, fudge, caramel and ample roast character to offset it. It balances quite nicely, and there isn’t any noxious alcohol or huge boozy ester character. Quite vinous actually, but with a "softer" graham cracker and vanilla base malt character that is augmented with light green hop notes and no surplus of acidity from the hops.
In the mouth it’s fairly thick, though importantly not sluggish or syrupy. Graham cracker, caramel, milk chocolate and espresso vie for dominance as boisterous dark fruits brighten things. Soft, ample carbonation, good attenuation and little booziness. Very nice stuff! Will continue to seek out Magic Rock

Lovely Beer, imagine a dark, Terry’s Chocolate Orange Chocolate, with an hint of brandy, in the aftertaste and you have it.
