At Kuhnhenns, bottle brought in by polomagnifico aka Ryan. A big thanks Ryan for sharing this wonderful creation of a beer for our 1000th rating. number 317 out of 688. Poured black with a small light tan head that left some good lacing. aroma a good bourbon, coffee, chocolate, some smoke, alcohol, dark fruits. Flavor, I was expecting something different than what I got, the taste and mouth feel of this beer was a big WOW. Got a nice smooth bourbon, toffee, chocolate, plums, good stong coffee, nice buttery, silky mouth feel. I have to say I was surprised by this when this was poured into my glass I thought this was going to be a very stong tasting beer but it was very easy to sip and enjoy and the flavors kept on getting better as it warmed. Did I say WOW and thank you Ryan

Big thanks to Zakoon for bringing this bottle @ Dangerous Bottleshares WLZBRZ edition Been wanted to try this for a long time. Letís get to it! Pours black with a nice brown head. Prettier than most DLís . Aroma of coconut, vanilla, dark sweet fruits, molasses, chocolate, some cherry, weak bourbon in the background and just sweet and smooth as... yep.. Perverse but somehow harmonic to me and I really like the things the beer pulled out of the barrels. The taste is... You guessed it - Sweet! With notes of vanilla, sweet bourbon, dark sweet caramel, smooth molasses, chocolate and marshmallows. More is more in this beer and I understand that it turns some people off - for me I just canít do anything else than enjoy it. Maybe not a whole bottle... Then again - I am up for the challenge if I ever get the chance!

Here it is. Ridiculously thick and rich Russian imperial stout with sweet caramel-bourbon flavor. Motor-oil palate (in the best way possible). Not quite like melted chocolate butter pecan ice cream, but getting there. I would sacrifice a kitten to get more of this. Not really, but maybe.

Enjoyed on tap at Kaiser Tiger in Chicago, IL after an interesting night of a 20 sided die raffle for Malort aged Dark Lord, and this was the special treat that no one was expecting, and it was like $2 for 6 oz which is bananas. This may be the best Dark Lord I've had considering the circumstances as well as how it wasn't as thick as the Malort aged but was way more potent and burning, and more flavorful to boot. Really, this one was a treat and I'm lucky to have stuck around to try this rare brew. Would have again but probably won't have again.

Zakoon (370) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2015
750ml bottle enjoyed @ Dangerous Bottleshares - WLZBRZ edition. Pours pitch black with a brown head. Aroma is raisins, prunes, plums, vanilla, caramel, molasses and some bourbon - but not enough, a hint of roasted malt. Flavour is sweet, almost overly sweet and light bitterness. Full bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation. Finish is sweet and warming alcohol.

Klimaet (969) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2015
Bottle thanks to Zakoon. Thanks buddy! Pours pitch black with a small brown head. Aromas of vanilla, chocolate, fudge, dark fruits, soy, roast, booze and a huge caramel backend. Taste is very sweet, brown sugar, vanilla, sweet chocolate, milky chocolate, dark sweet fruits. Not a lot of barrel compared to how sweet regular dark lord is, but still more barrelsweetness compared to the fruity sweetness regular has.

Bottle, 2015 vintage, courtesy of kermis. Massive thnx! Pours a pitch black beer with alsmost no head on top. Aroma is massive bourbon, molasses, very sugary, woody and loads of presences of the base beer. Flavor is incredibly full, very sweet and sugary with a massive amount of bourbon in there, as expected. Loads of booze in the aftertaste, soft carbonation and overall just amazing. Great stuff.

Vestergaard (1107) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2015
Bottle thanks to Zakoon! Pours a pitch black with a small, tan head. Aroma has thick, sweet bourbon, salty soy notes, dark berries like black currant, cherries and black berries, dark chocolate, prunes, figs, dates, vanilla, slight oak, caramel, very little roast. Taste is very sweet, but in a very fruity way, again almost no roast, salty soy notes, coco nut, bourbon. Brown sugar! Sticky body and medium low carbonation.

kermis (8062) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 8, 2015
2015 bottle shared as rating number 8000 and 49th top 50 tick. Pours clack with a very short lived beige head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla and barrel notes coming out but not as strong as the í11 Pappy version. A lot more of the base dark lord aspects showing up, molasses, soy, fudge, sweet chocolate and malt. Flavour is heavy sweet. Full bodied with a thick chewy palate and very soft carbonation.

Maakun (2028) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 8, 2015
Bottle shared massive thanks to kermis for my 2k rating and his 8k rating. Black with short lasting light brown head. Massive sweet bourbon, vanilla, marshmallow, light spices, huge molasses, brown candy sugar, unrefined cane sugar, port wine. Very very sweet with a hint of alcoholic bitterness in the finish. Full bodied with sticky syrupy feel and soft carbonation. Massive massive stuff, really sweet but also really nice. Crazy. Thanks so much to kermis (again) and a great way to get to 2k ratings.
