Dfonorow (1721) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2012
The pour is jet black with a finger wide dark tan head. The aroma is extremely sweet with notes of dark chocolate, roasted bitter coffee, vanilla extract, and oak. The flavor is mellowed out compared to the aroma but still has the same profile. It seems like the Darkness actually shines through the most out of all the blends. Its not overly sweet like the Dark Lord tends to be and its missing a lot of the unique flavors of the Black Albert and Beer Geek Brunch. Overall it works decently well and is worth a try if you can get a hold of it.

Marsiblursi (3054) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2012
(Bottle) Pours black with light brown head. The aroma holds liquorice, caramel, dark chocolate, coffee, dark fruits, light fruits, light esters, spicy brown sugar, molasses, berry jam, vanilla and light coconut milk alongside woodsy, floral, “green” and light earthy hops. Balanced nose. The flavour is medium sweet, medium bitter and light acidic with notes of robust creamy chocolate, vanilla, mild coffee, blueberry jam and fruity, resinous and “green” hops. The mouthfeel is round soft, velvet and smooth with a light carbonation. Soft roasted, fruity and “green” finish. Medium to full bodied. Balanced, maybe not mega complex but super tasty.

PhillyCraft (3971) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2012
Bottle. Compliments of James, thanks for this elusive brew brah. Shared with Pat, Simon, James and a few others. Pours black as nightm thin tan head. Scents and flavors were filled with toffee, fudge, liquorice, espresso, roasty malt, brown sugar, mollases, hops, vanilla, and the slightest bit of dark fruit in the finish. Soft mouthfeel. The booze was hidden somewhat well as far as taste goes but it did gave off an extreme warming feeling throughout the body. Excellent.

cheap (4573) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Rated at the 2012 RB Pgh May tasting. Not as dark as I thought it would be, initially it looked coal black but its not. Has a fine impy stout aroma. First impressions of wet burnt wood on the palate. Quite bitter and on par as with many other imp stouts. Becomes strong and over the top, Barely any detectable co2. This brew evolves; first it starts iff mellow with each sip and then it goes big time and bold. Finish is a little ride for any lager lover, simply a big beer.

AndyReynolds (1057) - Dayton, Kentucky, USA - MAY 15, 2012
I had this after having a 2012 Darklord. This was much more impressive. Awesome hop presence in the aroma with dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and molasses in the aroma. Fantastic beer. Thanks Bigmmartin for sharing.

jtclockwork (10894) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 13, 2012
Bottle. Pours black with brown head. Nose/taste is superb - lots of heavily roasted coffee, roasted dark chocolate malts, vanilla and hints of sarsaparilla, brown sugar and dark fruits. Finishes slightly dry with lots of roasted coffee. Medium body. I was skeptical of this beer even though I love most of the individual beers. I didn’t think the blend would be anywhere near as good as its parts. I was wrong.

Mortlach (1297) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 5, 2012
05/05/2012 bottle shared by Matt (thanks 50belair!) @Brasserie 4:20. Nerissima, densa, impenetrabile, schiuma color cappuccino, abbondante e molto persistente. Aroma intensissimo, aggressivo, di malti tostati, cioccolata fondente, vaniglia, chewingum, alcol, con note caffettose, ma sbilanciata sul dolce. In bocca è potente, aggressiva, dolce, con note di cioccolata, ciliegie, rum, molto alcolica. Corpo pieno, carbonazione soft. Birra estrema, senza dubbio.

ekoerper (596) - Iowa, USA - MAY 2, 2012
Aroma: lots of roast, coffee, chocolate, dark fruits, toffee, notes of booze. Pours pitch black, tan head with decent retention, light lacing and a ring of foam persists. Rich malt flavor, sweet without being cloying, good dose of coffee and heavily roasted malts, chocolate and brown sugar, molasses, figs, somewhat vinous, notes of vanilla. Full body, light-medium carbonation, coats the palate and has a long finish. Overall a very tasty beer.
