You can hear the whispering shadows and the creaking of old wooden beams, but is it your imagination that runs cold fingers down your spine, lacing your arms with goose bumps that engulf you with shivers, or have you just taken your first taste of this beyond-this-world black beverage that ascends the earthly limits of the style known to mortals as sweet stout? For this frightfully wonderful flavor delivers you to the unworldly dimensions of taste transcendence, bestowing you with the sweet caramel of bourbon and the silky layer of vanilla that pulls you into the misty, black layers of roasty mocha, chocolate, dark fruits, treacle and toffee. But all is wonderful and you shall fear no apparition, for what haunts you tonight is benevolent, and it will guide you to a lofty dreamland where good taste will live forever.
