Hammy78 (818) - Dundas, Ontario, - DEC 31, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2013 Bottle picked up at Dark Lord Day 2012. Cracked this puppy open for New Years Eve 2012, to celebrate two groups of friends engagements. Midnight black, motor oil, very oily on the top tan/ khaki head. All lacing just drops to the bottom. Smells super sweet, caramel, vanilla, beautiful roasted malts. Tastes like coffee, roasted malt, vanilla, caramel, toffee. So incredibly complex. I may actually like this better than fresh Darklord. Fantastic dessert stout.

Black with a small brown head. Aroma is heavy with coffee, chocolate, raisins, caramel, licorice, plum and slight alcohol. Taste is sweet dark fruits, caramel, licorice, dark fruits, dried fruits, smooth light bitterness with roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Sweet finish with dried fruits, licorice, caramel and warming alcohol. Full bodied, soft carbonation, creamy texture.

Lets go to the Jockey Box
what next?
Fredís Softball, shared by friend, not in dining room, for make the taste!
Pours black with a good head and decent lacing on the glass.

The aroma offers a bunch of stuff, raisins, chocolate, port wine, rum... booziness. It works together nicely for sure.

The flavor offers sweetness & richness with a low level of bitterness. Most bitterness offered comes in the form of roasty malt and coffee character both of which are modest players in the ball game. Itís chocolaty, itís got a lot of dark fruit and a good bit of booziness.

My review makes it sound like I donít like it, which isnít true at all. Itís huge, and itís fun, not sure Iíd want a lot of it... but I sure do like it real good.

Countbeer (4974) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - MAR 14, 2015
Bomber: Shared with Iluvatarmilan: Served in a Chouffe glass at 13 degrees Celsius: Black beer with a medium sized beige brown head. Aroma is just like a BIPA and some slight butterscotch hints. Flavours of deep dark roast, soy, bitters, mocha, dark chocolate, some liquorice, chalk, cacoa, some hops, quite refreshing for an Imperial Stout! Aftertaste is a mix of liquorice, roast, dark chocolate, hops, bitters.. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, close to full bodied.

Astonishing beer, which is little surprise considering its components. Depth, strength, hoppiness, chocolate, coffee. Grains. Mutes the considerable abv amazingly well.

dinkle50 (1075) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 8, 2015
Deep black pour with no head. Aroma of sweet sugar, a lot like Dark Lord in the aroma. Taste is explosion of bitterness and sweet that play on each other nicely. I can taste elements of all 4 beers. Bitter coffee, sweet toffee, candy & roast. Huge chewy mouth. Very interesting and also tasty.

Bottle share at Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell on 30 Jun 2012. Poured black, with a thin tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, liquorice and alcohol soaked dark fruits. Thick, full mouthfeel. Strong flavours of coffee, treacle and some smokiness. Finish was dates, burnt malt, cocoa and port.

Are these blends a bit gimmicky? I donít care - i bought into the hype. Great mix here with lots of dark fruit, booziness and some faint cocoa notes. A lot of licorice here which I wasnít expecting. Itís held up well though.
