Received in a trade but I forget who was awesome enough to send me this bottle. I’ll update if I remember. Either way, thanks alot! This bottle was shared with AndyReynolds and Ewestern.
I had read many mixed reviews before acquiring this bottle, so I wasn’t too sure what to expect going into it. However, it took nothing more than the first sip to shatter the idea of any negativity surrounding this brew. Pretty much straight up awesome in every aspect. The combination of the four base stouts really lends to a unique complexity. I know it doesn’t contain any Kate the Great, but as I drank my glass, that’s what it really reminded me of. It seemed to have a lot of that chocolate graham cracker and roasted malt quality that I remember from my KtG sample a few years ago.

I fell victim to the hype and love this beer.

Aroma of chocolate coffee roasted malt, bourbon vanilla. Some dark fruit but barely. Appears the darkest brown, little to no head. Spotty lacing is spotty. Taste is char, chocolate, some coffee only slight roast. Delicious.

Dark black pour with tan head... Aroma of ethanol, dark chocolate, roasted malts... Flavor is dark chocolate, prunes, dark fruits, coffee... Espresso and bitter chocolate on finish, almost peppery finish... Amazing ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 oz. bottle, big thanks to Greg for sharing! Gorgeous rich black velvet pour, dense brown head. Nose and flavor are really impressive considering the age this one has on it; coffee from the Mikkeller offering still shines through, but then the aging prowess of the other 3 components comes to the fore. The sweetness of the Dark Lord holds, with chocolate ganache and vanilla, but it’s tempered by the roasty bitterness of Darkness and a drop of dark fruit from the de Struise brew on the finish. Complex and luscious. Yeah, I’d drink it again.

’14 B-day tasting party. From an old trade. Thick, deep black-darker and more viscous than the ’11 Dark Lord I had side-by-side. Going off memory of the other beers, felt like this showcased mostly Darkness. Noticeably less sweet than the Dark Lord. Burnt malts, dark cocoa on the nose, some booze. Slightly astringent, bit ashy, but still good dark chocolate flavors and prune as well. All in tasting preferred the DL slightly.

Had this one in storage for awhile. Pours a dark, oily black with minimal, tan head. Complex aromas--some dark fruit (plum? prune?), chocolate, coffee, more than a little alcohol/booziness. Flavors include all of those, along with nuttiness and some leather. Quite noticeable alcohol taste. Smooth on the palate, but with a bitter finish. Glad I got to try one of these.

brystmar (1189) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 3, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2014 Baker’s chocolate, deep roastyness, alcohol on the back end, warming as it descends. Decent, but lacks depth and complexity.

Bottle thanks to Russell. Pours very dark brown with medium beige head. The aroma is strong chocolate, roast, caramel, oak, and smoke. Medium mouthfeel with rich chocolate, sweet roast, caramel, light booze. Very impressive.

Sampled @ Hunahpu Day 2014. Wow, I thought I would never get to try this beer. Pours black with thin brown head. Aromas of dark roasted malts, chocolate and coffee. Roasted malt and dark fruit flavors with chocolate and coffee and some booziness. Full body with minimal carbonation.

HMOG 2014. 2011 ed. 14%. No ish. Really this was much smoother than ABV would suggest. However, there was a bit of that tobacco/soy thing going on. Still big roasted, cocoa, dark chocolate abounds. Just a big ass beer that perhaps came off a bit abrasive. Still very good.
