Mikkeller Vik. Three Floyds tap takeover. Bottle share with Ronnie (Rlgk), Jan (Fonefan), Rene (Benzai) and the Swedish drinking team (Anders37, Lars, Lenhard and Bjorn). Holy....10.30am Dark Lord Batman! Opaque black - brown beer, small pale tan head. Amazing Port Wine fruity nose. Palate is smooth with fine carbonation. Smooth and fairly light dark malts, mild chocolate and malt cream. Lovely Port Wine liqueur and red berry fruits. Touches of wood and spice. Comes together so very well in to a smooth finish. No heat and stupidly drinkable. Sweet but not as many Dark Lords. Always thought this would be a belter and was not disappointed. Superb.

Leighton (18744) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2015
Bottle shared at Mikkeller Bar during CBC weekend 2014 by the incomparably generous Ken. Crazy beer. Pours oily black with a creamy tan head. The nose holds dark fruits, cocoa, roast, burnt bread. Big sweet flavor with buckets of liquefied fruits, gooey chocolate, raisins, prunes, figs, mellow bitterness. Full bodied, thick and chewy, with fine carbonation. Warming finish, sticky and sugary sweet, with loads more ripe dark fruits, raisins, brown sugar, chocolate. Big port character. Bulky but divine.
