COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When the twilight gives into obsession.Where the moonlight casts shadows and doubt toil a brewer, unleashing impassioned intentions in the form of an audacious stout. He finds freedom in his nocturnal efforts. He finds room under cover of night to seek flavors more darkly imagined roasted chocolate, with bitter black bite. How daring can such night visions be? Step into the shadows and see. Our Shadow Brewer pours black as night under a thick tan head. There, roasted malt, coffee and chocolate tastes and aromas give in to creamy notes, dark fruit, and pleasing bitterness.

I'll never not try something from Ommegang. This was typically well done. Best beer of the night.

Black pour under a rocky light beige head. Big boozy dark licorice nose with black malts and dark cocoa. Smooth dark bittersweet dark chocolate flavor with roasty black malt tones and earthy roastiness at the end. Intriguing.

On tap at MacGregor’s with Joe. Poured a clear dark brown color with an small tan head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted chocolate, coffee aroma. Medium toasted chocolate malt sweet flavor with a medium dark sweet finish of moderate duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Enjoyable!
