Black Magic Dark Mild Extract Beer Recipe Kit
We've eschewed divinity in favor of the occult to bring you a taste of Black Magic. A diabolical Dark Mild born of a deceptively simple recipe that spawns a murky potion possessing a decidedly complex flavor. Bread and biscuits, toast and toffee, chicory and caramel, all enveloped in a cloak of rich maltiness that's balanced by a mellow bitterness with subtle floral spiciness.
Before the dawn of science and the discovery of yeast, the act of fermentation was a mystical process, the product of seemingly supernatural forces. Whether by spirits of nature, or a gift from the gods, this magical transformation has captivated the human consciousness since time immemorial. Its spell cast, Black Magic will take hold of your senses and turn you away from the light (beer), and pull you to the darker side of homebrewing.

Smooth and so tasty very drinkable will brew again!
My buddy and I brewed this and... It really disappointed. We went back over the recipe to see what might have gone wrong, but found nothing. Basically it just tasted completely watered down. Tasted like somewhat roasty water. I loved the Caribou slobber recipe and was hoping this would be similar. Also not black, but a crystal clear Amber.
This produced a very good toasty, slightly hoppy mild. The description of it being dark is a bit misleading as it looks more like an amber ale.
We love the beer. We bought a 2nd kit and are awaiting for 1 of our primarys to open up for our next batch. It has a surprisingly hopp
I'll admit it, I bought this beer kit because of the free Big Mouth Bubbler promotion several months ago. Since brewing up a batch, it was in a primary fermenter for a month and a half, followed by a secondary (which ya', isn't necessary, but I like to fully ferment, and clarify my beers) for another couple months (it doesn't need that long, I got busy, threw my back out, went on a trip, and remembered that this needed to be bottled), and was finally bottled, two weeks ago. It's had enough time to carb up, so, this morning, I put one in the mini-fridge to chill it down. I just poured, enjoyed, and after having finished it, can honestly say, that this is a damn fine brown ale. I like Ellie's, by Avery Brewery, and I like this just as much, possibly a bit better actually, which after all, is the precise reason that we brew at home, in the first place, enjoy!
