On tap at 3 Floydís Anniversary party. This beauty was poured nicely into what looked like Iíd say a 10 oz or so plastic cup. Now thatís what I call baller. The beer itself was pitch oil black with a tan head. Aroma had espresso, dark chocolate, dark roasted malts, and a touch of molasses/brown sugar hops. This stuff is pretty thick. The mouthfeel seems real heavy on this one with light carbonation. Taste pretty much followed the nose. It seemed Dark Lord forward while melding in some notes from its other parts. I am curious if this was brewed all at once or blended. On one hand I could see this being brewed at once because it finishes so smooth. On the other hand it seemed like the parts that made up the whole were thrown in their and it was noticeable in the middle. Up front had all the other flavors I noticed in the nose. Overall I enjoyed this and think it will age in a year or 2 nicely.

Bottle share at Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell on 30 Jun 2012. Poured black, with a thin tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, liquorice and alcohol soaked dark fruits. Thick, full mouthfeel. Strong flavours of coffee, treacle and some smokiness. Finish was dates, burnt malt, cocoa and port.

Are these blends a bit gimmicky? I donít care - i bought into the hype. Great mix here with lots of dark fruit, booziness and some faint cocoa notes. A lot of licorice here which I wasnít expecting. Itís held up well though.

Pours black with a big beautiful brown head. Aroma of dark chocolate, roast, coffee and espresso. Lovely to taste that Dark Lord is not overwhelming all other beers, nice balance. Sweet from Dark Lord, coffee from Beer Geek Brunch. Lovely stuff. Maybe the alcohol is a bit too present.

22 ounce bottle. Pours black with a decent tan head. Nice aroma of malt, chocolate, and coffee. Taste is roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, dark fruit, vanilla, spice, and a touch of alcohol. This bottle seemed to hold itís age well. Very nice.

Black with a brown head. Aroma has nice roast, malts, espresso. Coffee is obvious but well balanced with loads of roastyness. Totally surprised that the overpowering sweetness of Dark Lord has been toned down. Very nice

Black pour with a tan head. The aroma is a mix of chocolate and roasted malt with some huge coffee character. The flavor is very similar. I get some heavy coffee as well as some chocolate, roasted malt and cream. There is also some nice vanilla character as the beer warms up. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. This stout has it all. Excellent.
