Sampled from a growler at DarkLord Day, thanks anonymous person. Pours a murky brown with a small head. Chocolate nose, not picking out much else. Light chocolate flavors with a smooth palate. Not very sweet for a sweet stout, and actually finishes a little dry ... but a decent stout none the less.

Festival Tap: Black with roasty nose. Some chocolate coffee in the flavor, but flavor was rather light all around. Mouthfeel was especially creamy which was welcome. Slight dryness at finish, description says 44IBU.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JUL 11, 2006
From a growler. Just about opaque black with a small frothy tan head. Coffee and chocolate evident in the aroma, a touch of oatmeal and caramel. Medium bodied, low carbonation, smooth mouthfeel. The flavor was malty mocha with a hint of oats. Pretty good stout.

It does go down "silky" as the description says. Milk chocolate, candy, syrup, oat flavors. Some roasted and smoke notes as well? In the middle malted milk, and milk duds. Really good long finish. Super thin and watery, which adds to the ease of drink.

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - MAY 27, 2008
Sampled at HotShotz Indy tasting May 24, 2008 - Aroma is dark malts, oats, grease and chocolate. Pours light black with a small head and good lacing. Flavor matches aroma and is pretty mellow. This may be due to itís place in the tasting. Palate is creamy and smooth. Not bad and will probably rate higher when I get it on itís own.

kassner (1338) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2009
Pretty nice ruby color, good smoke and some peat, Modest carbonation but just as good as a Guiness

Block (1319) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - AUG 8, 2008
Sampled at the restaurant. Really nice dark black color with almost no head (most likely because I had the sampler and they were poured early). Light aroma with stronger coffee and roasted malt flavor.

gws57 (1274) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - AUG 2, 2010
Had this one on draught as part of a sampler at the brewpub in Lafayette, Indiana. Opaque dark brown pour with a coffee and soy sauce nose, very sweet chocolate and bitter coffee balanced out into an outstanding oatmeal stout.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - MAY 4, 2008
12 oz bottle: Deep black core with tan highlights and a thick brown head. Notes were light but present, mostly nuts and caramel. The body was even and balanced with chocolate, nuts, caramel and coffee. The oatiness was missing though. A well done brew that didnít extend itself in any direction to warrant a second look. Solid but expected.
