Bottle, thanks bytemesis! Very dark brown, almost black, nice amount of head, medium retention, not much lacing. Molasses, dry fruits, chocolate, some alcohol. Very similar flavor profile, a bit of nuttiness, coffee bitterness in the mid palate and finish. Bitterness lingers for awhile. Alcohol is well hidden. The various components come through during the tasting. Extremely well balanced, excellent stout.

Black with a brown head. Aroma has nice roast, malts, espresso. Coffee is obvious but well balanced with loads of roastyness. Totally surprised that the overpowering sweetness of Dark Lord has been toned down. Very nice

Black pour with a tan head. The aroma is a mix of chocolate and roasted malt with some huge coffee character. The flavor is very similar. I get some heavy coffee as well as some chocolate, roasted malt and cream. There is also some nice vanilla character as the beer warms up. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. This stout has it all. Excellent.

Dark fruit, leather, earth, tobacco, cocoa powder, oak, and slight umami. Light sweetness with a woody vinous follow through. Lively, full bodied, but not too heavy. Reminiscent of Darkness.

Pours a deep black with minimal head. Very faint aroma with only vanilla coming through. Taste is a little carbonated with a smokey finish in the palate. Very good and smooth palate. Smoke, coffee and a hint of chocolate.

Aroma of chocolate coffee roasted malt, bourbon vanilla. Some dark fruit but barely. Appears the darkest brown, little to no head. Spotty lacing is spotty. Taste is char, chocolate, some coffee only slight roast. Delicious.

22 oz. bottle, big thanks to Greg for sharing! Gorgeous rich black velvet pour, dense brown head. Nose and flavor are really impressive considering the age this one has on it; coffee from the Mikkeller offering still shines through, but then the aging prowess of the other 3 components comes to the fore. The sweetness of the Dark Lord holds, with chocolate ganache and vanilla, but it’s tempered by the roasty bitterness of Darkness and a drop of dark fruit from the de Struise brew on the finish. Complex and luscious. Yeah, I’d drink it again.

’14 B-day tasting party. From an old trade. Thick, deep black-darker and more viscous than the ’11 Dark Lord I had side-by-side. Going off memory of the other beers, felt like this showcased mostly Darkness. Noticeably less sweet than the Dark Lord. Burnt malts, dark cocoa on the nose, some booze. Slightly astringent, bit ashy, but still good dark chocolate flavors and prune as well. All in tasting preferred the DL slightly.

Had this one in storage for awhile. Pours a dark, oily black with minimal, tan head. Complex aromas--some dark fruit (plum? prune?), chocolate, coffee, more than a little alcohol/booziness. Flavors include all of those, along with nuttiness and some leather. Quite noticeable alcohol taste. Smooth on the palate, but with a bitter finish. Glad I got to try one of these.
