Black Cauldron Imperial Stout (Grand Teton Brewing Co.)

Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.  Grand Teton Brewing Company must have hired witches to brew this deliciously evil brew.  In fact I bet they placed an ad in the newspaper and it went something like this:

Are you good at magic?  Specifically Black magic?  In this economy we here at Grand Teton Brewing understand just how expensive eye of newt and the blood of an albino toad cost.  Why not make some extra cash brewing for us?  We are offering a full package of all the ingredients you will need as well as health care, retirement package, and even your very own broom closet parking space.  Apply now! Must have references and experience (black cats do not count as references).

Well at least that’s how I imagine it would look.  Although I wonder what newspaper they would have put that in.  The Witch Hat Times?  The Flying Broom Journal? Maybe the Black Cat Tribune?  I guess I’ll never know.  One thing is for sure though this beer is magically tasty treat that will put a hex on you and before you know it the 4 pack is gone.

The color of this witch’s brew is black with a british khaki head. The aroma is of coffee with a slight chocolate hint.  Really it just smells black though.  The taste is similar to the aroma in that it has a coffee, chocolate, heaviness to it (heavy  like the blackness of night).  This brew pours thick like blood and the roasted bitterness and warming remind me of the third level of hell. And to top it off the witches must have added some potion that made it smooth and creamy (I guess that way it’s easier to swallow).

Black Cauldron Imperial Stout is not a light beer.  At 8% ABV it is sure to cause you to transform into a wild and dark beast of the night.  The only thing I wish I could remember after drinking this beer is why my feet were muddy the next morning.  Happy Halloween everybody!!
