Slightly thick and syrupy. Chocolate, toffee and molasses. A bit of a metallic aftertaste. Got it on draft at cigar city tasting room!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Traded bottle enjoyed in FL. Possibly the thickest looking beer I have ever poured. Seriously looked like used motor oil with a small ruby accent head. Big aroma of sweet and dark fruit, molasses and brown sugar. Huge flavor profile that covers espresso, tart cherries and sweet malt. No hint of the 11 ABV. Nice but big.

Rustbrown head, fast gone over jet-black beer. Black ŗnd sweet chocolate, some unidentifiable, but really nice green herbs, and... tobacco? Jacket potato, earthy, chocolate, felt, alcohol & fusels. Seriously complex. Alcoholburn≤, utterly well-bodied and viscous. Talk about Imperial - impressive.

750 ml. bottle sampled @ "Er Klopt Iemand Op De Deur" Samson & Gert Bierproeving I. Thanks! Spare rocky dark head. Pitchblack. Rediculously thick beer, molasses, nutty, burnt, roasted, bitter, leather, faint earth, wood, charcoal, very bitter, very heavy roast, thick dark berries syrup. Crazily thick beer, very interesting, bit too much roast for me personally but wonderful all the same. Thick, creamy molasses.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a true black with a dark tan head that creeps to the edge of the glass, moderate lacing. Aroma is complex, deep and rich: chocolate malt, roast, toffee sweetness. Flavor is large and in charge: chocolate notes come through the intense and balanced RIS flavors. Alcohol is well masked - this is 11.5%? Viscous as oil. Delicious. From notes 1/23/10 (Geist Dark Lord tasting).

Had a three year vertical with 2011, 2012, 2013 bottles with many many thanks to PaulUnwin! My favorite from the bunch was the 2011, followed by the 2012 and rounded out in last by the 2013. Make no mistake there wasnít a bad beer in the bunch. These are all bold, fully-rounded, flavorful and intense Stouts. To do a vertical of these was truly a first-class treat.
