Pours almost black with a thin layer of tan head. Smells very, very, ashy. Must be the Beer Geek Brunch. There’s some metal and a bit of dark fruit character to it. Very roasty, too. The flavor isn’t much better. Very ashy and roasty. There is some dark fruit and maybe a little bit of licorice and molasses. A hint of vanilla to go along with the char and ash. Medium to full bodied with low carbonation.

Bottle... Poured dark black with a thin head. I thought this was a bit underwhelming for what it is. I’m not sure where it came from in the four beers that were blended but I really got a floral happiness character up front that distracted from what I love about all of the blended beers. Some coffee came in, big roast. Very dense and quite thick on the palate. Dark fruits and a hint of alcohol booziness.

thome50 (1018) - Boringville aka Irvine, California, USA - JAN 6, 2012
Bottle via Mike on the other site. Pours black with minimal tan head. Very little lacing. Aroma is of chocolate and some burnt malt. Coffee doesn’t really come in until the end, if at all. Very sweet stout from a chocolate stand point. Raisin comes in with other dark fruit. Enjoyable, better than my experiences with Dark Lord, not as good as my experience with Darkness.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - JAN 4, 2012
Nicely carbonated small head ring. Big raisin and alcohol aromas, with a roasted but not astringent coffee smell. Deeply sweet and bitter at the same time, crazily so, of course, with lots of detectable alcohol. Not thin, but well carbonated. Tasty and good, but hot.

Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours dark brown with a modest tan head and a chocolate and treacle aroma. There is a ferocious stout flavor with lots of treacle and some dark chocolate. Very rich. This is a great blend.

Bomber from Secret Santa. Please tell me your ratebeer name! Pours black with a transitory dark head. Aromas of dark fruit, darker fruit, lots of burnt malt, coffee and treacle. Super full body. Flavors of coffee, treacle, chocolate, dark burnt malt. Lusciously complex.

Had this bottle. Very nice with a heady roasted malt aroma. Dark with lots of malts and bitter coffee, almonds and chocolate flavors. Balance of hops as well.

Bottle shared by JCB. Thanks J! Dark brown with a small tan head. Roast, lightly fruity, heavy bitterness. Pretty ho-hum stout with nothing that really stands out. I think I like all of those beers better individually.

(22oz bottle from Dak). Pours dark brown with espresso head. Aroma is coffee, dark chocolate. Taste is sweet with some fairly heavy roast. Full bodied with an oily texture. Earthy. Pretty good stuff.
