3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted at RBSG grand tasting. Bottle. Very dark brown color. Thin off-white khaki head. Dots of lace. Bigger body, pretty sticky. Lighter carbonation. Sweet taste, bigger sweet. Kind of sugary. Alcohol works alright but I could use a bit of bitter to balance this out. Chocolate, caramel, light spice. Doesn’t do much for me, honestly. First time I had Dark Lord I thought something was wrong with ME, but now I realize this sweet stuff is just not my style. Decent, cool one to try though.

Bottle, shared with friends. Absolutely fantastic, the cognac barreling gives a nice extra dimension to the Dark Lord. Amazing mouthfeel.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle #474 with hella thanks to Dak! Shared with friends. Pours opaque black with a small creamy brown head that dissipates fairly quickly and leaves decent lacing. Aroma is hella rich cocoa, cognac, fudge, vanilla, dark fruits. Flavor follows, medium sweet and light bitter, lots going on here, and its all good. Fully body, creamy mouthfeel. Flavor can’t quite rise to the level of the hella good aroma, but its still a damn nice beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
One of my favorite variants. Pours a dark sludgy color with a thick tan head. Aroma of chocolate, wooden barrel, coffee, sweet and boozy. Flavor is big, boozy, sweet, touches of fruity cognac, more booze, some molasses and chocolate. The fruitiness is apparent, hot, interesting. The cognac barrel mixes well with this beer. Full bodied, above average carbonation. Finishes sweet and boozy.
