THE stout tasting Pt1. Big thanks to Jack for the hatrick of Dark Lords. Who needs Demba Ba when Jack scores like this? Opaque dark brown - black beer. Short lived bubbly dark tan head. Green vegetal nose! Soft and frothy viscous palate. Sweet dark malts with dark chocolate and cream. Big green chilli attack - spice and blooming warmth that gives an itch on the back of the throat. An experience but I think the chilli is overdone, it dominates way too much.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a reddish black color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted chocolate malt, pepper, dark fruit and sugar aroma. Medium to heavy toasted chocolate malt, pepper, dark fruit flavor with a heavy dark bittersweet and small pepper bite finish of moderate to long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is standout beer.

brokensail (9918) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 18, 2012
Pours nearly black with no head or carbonation. Intense chili and spiciness to the aroma. Not much in the way of cognac aroma. Very green and mildly earthy. There is a bit of booze and vanilla. The flavor has a rather strong spiciness to it. Tons of chili pepper flavor, earthiness, mild roasted malt flavor, and sweet brandy. The usual sweetness of Dark Lord is tempered a bit.

Leighton (9833) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2013
Bottle at The Stout Tasting Part I, London - many thanks to Jack. Pours black-brown with a beige cream head. Big green chili nose, dark malts, some dark chocolate. Really spicy flavor with more fresh, green chili pepper and background dark chocolate. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Hot finish, mostly chili heat rather than alcohol burn (although it’s tough to sort out) with more dark malt sweetness, chili-laced chocolate. The spiciness totally cuts through the sweetness. Good, but hot.

Lubiere (9427) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2013
A deep dark stout with no head. In aroma, bitter chocolate with soy sauce, chili, coffee grind, very herbaceous. In mouth, a superb sweet chocolate with thick soy sauce, pinot de charente, chocolate liqueur, and hot pepper in finish, muy mexicano. Xmas Ottawa gathering Dec 13 2013.
