Magic Hat Heart of Darkness
From Magic Hat — Filled with the howling of black dogs that haunt the long forgotten shadows of the human soul Our inky-black stout had a smooth, round palate with a dreamlike undercurrent of bittersweet chocolate. This dense liquid-silk summoned hope from hibernation and balanced winter’s endless white snows with a rich swirl of creamy black rapture.
