4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Russian style Imperial Stout ... WAAAAHHUUUUU. Den er vild. Ligner tjære, når den siver langsomt ud af flasken. Olie sort og fed nærmest uden skum og stort set ingen kulsyre. Næse af lakrids, kaffe og kirsebær. Smagen er en eksplosion af krydderi, anis, kaffe, jord og overmodne skovfrugt. Sødlig, men med tilpas bitterhed til balancen.
Brygget 2007 og holder præcis 15 %. VILD (og lidt sær) øl. KONGE

Bottle kindly shared by Steve. Pours opaque black with a small beige head. Nose is booze, strong soy, roast, bourbon. Wasnít impressed with the aroma but the flavor improved as it warmed up - sweet, malt, alcohol, dark fruits, bourbon, with a definite dark lord taste on the back end. Better than expected considering we were worried itíd be infected.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2015 On tap at DLD 14. Marked as 2011 Heaven Hill Dark Lord. Black, no head but a thick lacing. Definitely dark lord base. Bourbon was subtle but probably killed the sweetness. Thick, smooth, and amazing.
6.1.14 Bottle, acquired at 12 DLD. Itís bourbon. Itís dark lord. Itís exactly as advertised and every bit as magical as you might expect.
5.19.15 2015 bottle lots of sweetness but it takes away the harsh overly sugary molasses of the regular dark lord. Touch of Cherry. Not much barrel character in there. Liked the 12 with 2 years age on it better. Seems to be about when these peak.

If you haven't had this beer. Get to Munster Indiana in late April and get some. Make sure you have a golden ticket.

2012 bomber to snifter. Pours thinner than expected. Aroma of sugar and molasses and some nostril burning alcohol. Thin carbonation. Taste is overwhelming sweet molasses. Thinner and somehow sweeter than the regular. Sticky burning sweet. Should have shared with more than 1 person.

Bomber. 2013. At tailgate. Aroma is heavy dried fruit and some bourbon vanilla and malt. Taste is vanilla, dried fruit, and again heavy plum. Silky smooth. Really great texture to this beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 381/420. Pours jet black, minimal mocha colored head. Very little lacing. Aromas of coffee, chocolate, dark fruits and booze. Taste is a little more brash than I was expecting. Big notes of the coffee/chocolate upfront, as the nose would suggest. But, I get some of that soy sauce flavor over the middle here that I did not taste in the Vanilla Bean variant. A bit off-putting, but itís appearance is short-lived. The dark fruits...raisin, plum...come through bringing some sweetness before the roasted nut/oak/bourbon dominate the finish. The syrup/molasses not only encompass some flavor here, but the mouthfeel as well. Very sticky. Pretty darn good beer.
