3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at a STL tasting - Pours reddish brown with no head. The aroma has lots of coffee, chocolate and good amount of green apple. It has a medium thick body that is very smooth and has light carbonation. The taste has lots of cocoa, roast, spice, cinnamon and lots of alcohol burn. The finish is mainly alcohol burn. This just had the alcohol too prevalent for my tastes.

Bottle @ a recent bottle share... Poured dark, near black with a thin head. Light carbonation and super thick moth feel. Like the rest of the Black Tuesday variants; quite sweet and fortified with a lot of alcohol heat. Tasted of a chocolate liqueur, toasted caramel/toffee sugars, and more booze

Bottle of Mocha Wednesday generously shared by Dave. Aroma is roast coffee, sticky toffee, darker chocolate, and molasses. Pours engine oil black and thick with very dark brown lacing. Taste is sweet molasses, roasty coffee, chocolate, oak, toffee, and light bourbon. Big sticky mouthfeel which evenly distributes the delicious coffee and oak roast. This is a damn fine beer. Very grateful that I got to try it.

Bottle share at my place...thanks Jeff! Poured a jet black dirty motor oil in a small snifter. Black body with very minimal mocha head. Head gone fast and no lacing. The aroma is straight up coffee, cocoa nibs, dark chocolate, and slightly roasted malts. The taste was a great mix of the aromas with the cocoa nibs dominant, then coffee, vanilla and roasted malts. Sweet, but with a slight bitter finish. Creamy, thick mouth. Full body, oily. Finish is coffee and nibs. Very well done.

750 ml bottle poured into a mini snifter. Pours an inky black with no head. The aroma is sweet, fruity, roasty. The taste is sweet up front but moves to a roasty coffee bitterness. Thick, chewy mouthfeel. Low carbonation.

Another great beer at the Dark Lord Day bottle sharing at the Hampton Inn prior to Dark Lord Day 2014. Dark brown inching toward black with a tan head. Nose of chocolate, coffee, and alcohol. Medium plus body and a big alcohol burn on the tongue. Flavor is really rich, with the chocolate and coffee and the finish is sweet and very long and rich. The alcohol is very much there, but but the flavors are so rich it does not become obtrusive or spoil the beer. Darn good.

Bottle @ Greg’s apartment. Thanks to John for sharing. Pours a deep brown appearance with a very thin head. Caramel, toffee, roasted coffee, dark chocolate aroma. Thick, rich dark chocolate, pretty earthy / roasted coffee, a bit goopy flavor. Actually pretty smooth finish. Kinda fun brew but not quite as good as Grey Monday or Black Tuesday.
