On tap at 3 Floyd’s Anniversary party. This beauty was poured nicely into what looked like I’d say a 10 oz or so plastic cup. Now that’s 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.

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.

HMOG 2014. Light soy sauce but more roasty malt and bitter sweet chocolate flavors. Soy comes through more in the flavor than the aroma. Cocoa and a milk chocolate texture working in the background. Pretty well done.

Cybercat (2986) - Georgia, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Comes out of the bottle a warm coffee brown with a fairly thick tan head. Coffee and caramel dominate the tempting but not too sweet aroma. Sweet caramel and coffee are the main components of the excellently stouty flavor, well supported by the roast malt undertone. This blend is somewhat but not excessively sweet. Texture is very viscous and very fizzy, leaving a finish of coffee and sweet roast malt.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 10, 2014
Bottle. Completely black color, brown head, delicate lacing. Aroma of burnt espresso, figs, dates, cocoa. Taste has licorice, dark chocolate, roasted coffee, dark winter fruit. Nice body. Delicious.

Lukaduke (1737) - Portland, Maine, USA - FEB 24, 2014
Bottle shared thanks to JBPortland ! Pours a deep thick viscous black color with a finger of dark khaki foam. The nose is sweet chocolate, plum, licorice and some roasted malt. The palate is slick and silky with a sweet heavy chocolate background, lots of dark fruit and berry that adds almost tartness to the beer. Not sure if this has just lost its balance with age or not but this beer was a bit of a mess and quite a let down.

22oz bottle pours dark oily black with a small thin head. Nose is boozy dark fruits, earthy wet coffee grounds, baker’s cocoa. Taste is rich old burnt coffee and some fruity plum, raisin, a touch of sweet fruit acidity adds a strange dimension. Finish is boozy bitter dark chocolate, plum, some sublte fruity tartness. A bit weird, maybe past it’s prime.

Minderbinder (1583) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 9, 2014
Bottle 22oz. Pours black/very dark brown. Low beige head, nice lacing. Aroma is of roasted malt, chocolate, slight smoke, alcohol, faint soy sauce. Taste is of vegetal stuff, roasted malt, old cold coffee, bitterness, sugar, chocolate, alcohol. Palate: Full bodied. Low carbonation. Sticky texture. Overall: Not too sure these beers make an awesome blend. Good for sure.
