Beer Advent calendar - Day 20

Aha! A beer from the wonderful Boulevard Brewing Company in Kansas City. A brewery recommended to me by a fellow Bookliker.

 

This particular beer is Dark Truth Stout, and I love the very enthusiastic blurb.

 

Throughout the ages, man has been fascinated by the quest for hidden knowledge, the search for the secret to transforming the elemental into the extraordinary, the simple into the sublime. Ladies and gentlemen, we present for your consideration this exotic, inky concoction, the almost magical creation of our modern day alchemists who have turned humble grains—barley, wheat, rye, and oats—into black, liquid gold. Layers of complex flavors slowly emerge from the glass: espresso, roasted fig, crème brulée. Belgian yeast provides a plum-like fruitiness, noble German hops reveal spicy, herbal notes, while the rich, velvety mouthfeel mellows to a dry, smoky finish.

 

Come on, admit it. You want to try it don't you?
