Bottle. Bought at Hviids, Aabenraa. Sadly not ’that’ Dark Lord, but still... Pours a dark nutty brown with a medium foamy beige head. Aroma is sweet and slightly nutty sweet.Nice full mouthfeel. Flavours include ash, roasted malts, sweet caramel and a little peppery bitterness. A bit strange, but still quite drinkable.

RBSG 2007 Grand Tasting. I’ll forgo the 3F jokes. Brown with an off white head. Somewhat sweet nutty cola flavors - strange. Light roasty notes. Pretty bland.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Neat! Someone brought Dark Lord to the RBSG ’07 Grand Tasting. Though it is not the highly demanded imperial stout from Three Floyds, this beer caused a few novice beer drinkers to get excited that evening. Located at the main entrance table, this beverage pours a clear dark brown brew with a beige head that quickly dissolves to a fine film. Aroma of caramel, dried pitted fruit, and some flowery hops. Taste is medium bodied, some sweet caramel, roasted malt, and dark chocolate flavors. Finish is average with a dry aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Very dark brown with a vaguely orange hue and a creamy, beige, cappuchinoish head leaving laces. Sweetish, roasted malt notes with some fruitiness. Medium body with sweetish, roasted malt notes and a lightly burned edge. There’s a whiff of salt in there. The finish is dry. A nice effort. 030707

RBSG 07 Grand Tasting beer #4. Ruby color. Looked great, but then it went down hill (to the creek....). Faint dried fruits, too much water.

The other Dark Lord. Light ruby color. Aroma has mild malt. Some roasted character, as well as dried fruit. A nice change from American porters. Thanks to Chris_o for sharing.
