Bottle from fear025. I feel like a baller tonite. Dark pour with off white head. Aroma is dark roast and chocolate with sweet fruit. Taste is mild chocolate, pungent hop bitterness, chalky. Pretty good. I like some of the individual beers better.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - DEC 27, 2012
22oz bottle via trade. Very dark brown almost black with a big, foamy, tan head. Aroma of bitter-sweet chocolate, vanilla, roasted coffee, caramel and light earthy/musty scent. Flavor of dry cocoa, hot alcohol, bitter roasted black malt and a light caramel malt sweetness. Full body with a long, dry, hot finish. This is a very strong beer that has a lot going on but comes together rather well, I think the other beers help tone down the overly sweet dark lord.

BMan1113VR (7867) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Trade from a LONG time ago. Pours with a muddy, near black hued body with a lasting tan head. Aromas are floral with notes of iodine, chocolate, fudge, roast, coffee and cherry. Dark fruits. Flavors are nutty, chocolate, ashy, lightly floral, with medium to high roast and cocoa. Chalk. Fuller body with fuller carbonation. Decent hype train beer.

jstraw (1928) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Black with modest brown head / Peculiar grassy nose of turning orchard fruit, coffee, chocolate / Full body, thick but mellow and soft, chewy, excellent balance and long finish with underlying bitterness / Flavors of bittersweet chocolate, dark roast coffee, caramel, tobacco, licorice, ripe strawberries, turning apple, and pine / Based on a small sample at the Jerry’s Dark Lord tasting, this seems to have a definite Belgian aspect.

Nice chocolate aromas. Very good chocolate flavors. Overall a very good stout.

JohnnyJ (4395) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Bottle from someone I can’t remember. Dark black viscous pour, tan head, with dark brown swirls. Super sugary, molasses, chocolate, raisin, and lots of roast. The aroma is quite boozy, but the flavor and mouthfeel are more smooth. A pretty tasty imperial stout, which is a real sipper, but a little too sugary, and doesn’t quite live up to it’s high expectations.

Bottle. Pours black with a medium sized fine beige head. The aroma has big roasted malts, chocolate, caramel, resiny hops, additional sweetness that seems to be like candi sugar, and a spot of yeast. This appears to be a great blend of the four minus the coffee from the BGB which I didn’t get much of anything in the nose. The flavor has a big roasted malt backbone, chocolate, caramel, green hops, mild coffee with a smooth mouth feel and full body. I enjoyed this on draft at the anniversary party and think it is doing nicely in the bottle.

Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike! Served in my new FFF XV Anniversary glass, also gifted by Mike. The beer is near black with a thick, beige head that leaves a thick sheet of lacing o the glass. The aroma brings roast, dark fruit, malt. An interesting stout for sure. A blend of dark fruit, chocolate covered berries, minimal alcohol presence. Not getting a lot of coffee presence from the Weasel, or the hop character I associate with Darkness. The blend is smooth and flavorful, but I can’t distinguish the beers that comprise the blend individually. Smooth on the palate and easy drinking, especially considering the high abv. A bit sweet, but balanced in the finish by a light hop and chocolate bitterness. Overall, very glad for the opportunity to sample this. That said, I prefer all of the components that went into this individually as opposed to this blend. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 01-01-2012

JulienHuxley (3256) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2012
Bottle thanks to Kan. Pitch black pour, thin tan head. Aroma: Lots of raisins, chocolate, belgy profile, molasses, roasty grains. Taste is a nice mix of roasty and sweet, no coffee notes, quite sweet tasting, lots of plums, molasses. Palate is rich and creamy, quite thick. I enjoyed this heavy boozer, although I would say that the whole beer may not be better than any of it’s parts.

pineypower (2523) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Bottle shared much thanks to Dmac. Pours out dark brown-almost black with a small tan head. Aroma is of chocolate brownies, molasses, coffee, earthy wood, sweet chocolate and dried fruits. Taste is complex, full syrupy body with lots of dried fruits, subtle coffee, earthy roast, molasses, light bitterness, more fruit, and some lingering warming alcohol in the finish. Thick, and full bodied.
