Silver City Brewery Shadow Magic
What the brewers say
"Inspired by the traditional foreign extra stout style, this dark ale brings deep, rich, malty chocolate flavor and a velvet-smooth body from the addition of oats and roasted wheat. Go beyond light and embrace the darkness."
What our panel thought
“Subtle, almost one-dimensional at first, but it grows as it warms. Medium resin, diesel hop aroma, then light toast, coffee, malt. Finish has hints of licorice, earthy bitterness, and some lingering cherry-plum sweetness.”
What our editors thought
“Subtle, polished chocolate notes on the nose. Big roast-malt flavor notes, very light smoke, and a subtle sweetness pulls it together and softens the edges.”
