On draught at Roscoe’s. Black color. Dark malt and coffee aroma. Taste is a great balance of sweet caramel malt, dark chocolate, espresso, and prominent tropical citrus hops. Really well-balanced and not the least bit bitter.

From growler filled at Boneyard. Wonderful taste, and I didn’t know about the 3 Floyds connection until I viewed this beer’s ratings. No wonder they have a couple of Dark Lord Day posters in the tasting room. A truly wonderful quaff from a great brewery!
