4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2013 Bottle picked up at Dark Lord Day 2012. Cracked this puppy open for New Years Eve 2012, to celebrate two groups of friends engagements. Midnight black, motor oil, very oily on the top tan/ khaki head. All lacing just drops to the bottom. Smells super sweet, caramel, vanilla, beautiful roasted malts. Tastes like coffee, roasted malt, vanilla, caramel, toffee. So incredibly complex. I may actually like this better than fresh Darklord. Fantastic dessert stout.

Bomber received in trade. Thank you rfraga7. Pours close to black with a frothy and creamy dark mocha head that is pretty quick to dissipate while leaving no trace worth mentioning. Smell is sweet and fruity with roasted malts, prunes, dark chocolate, dark roast coffee, alcohol, sweet liquorice candy, resinous wood, moist soil, minerals and hints of peat and vanilla. Taste is sweet and bitter with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, prunes, raisins, resinous wood, moist soil, bitter chocolate, vanilla, burnt cookies, butterscotch hard candy, salty liquorice and alcohol. Mouthfeel is soft, creamy, boozy, tiny astringent and near full bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, raisins, prunes, alcohol, bitter chocolate and salty liquorice. Intense and tasty.

Decent blend, surely seemed too good to be true with so many mixed, it sin’t diverse though, pretty standard cocoa, bourbon, caramel, roast stout.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
High glycemic index sugary dark malty sweetness up front, some soy sauce, darker roasted malts, some coffee is here as well. Definitely dominated by Dark Lord and Darkness. Black pour with a dark brown head, thick looking, nice legs and stuff. Flavors of super sweet dark fruit and residual sugars up front, soy sauce in the mid palate, some coffee and roasted malts show up and it is finished by strong residual sugars and dark fruit again. Super thick viscuous body, strong alcohol presence. Interesting idea but too sweet and strong. I guess I am a big floppy vag. "Meh" (Jon, 2008).

Bomber from a trade, poured into a tulip and shared with friends. Pours pitch black with a small tan head. Nose is chocolate, toffee, vanilla. Taste is... just odd, with a lot of coffee bitterness and some sweetness as well. I could taste the Dark Lord in there, but the other beers didn’t enhance it. Full bodied. Overall pretty disappointing.
