4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
2012 bottle pours jet black with a small brown head. The aroma is heavy sweet black roasted malt, liquorice, light coffee, tar and chocolate. The flavour is roasted malt, sweet caramel, liquorice, and chocolate. Super complex but a bit on the sweet side. Thick and full bodied. More hype than beer, but I still enjoyed it

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
July 2016 – Rating #6000. Bottle share at Craft Beer Co Islington as ’Three Floyds Dark Lord’. Orange wax 2013 version. Many thanks indeed to Leighton for the Ratebeer bucketlister. Black, opaque with a foamy brown head. Aroma is molasses, some chocolate, demerara, coffee. Body is smooth, soft carbonation, oily. Taste is chocolate, coffee, plum, molasses, spicy with a touch of booze showing up but minimal considering the hefty ABV. A good beer without a doubt. Meaty sweet up front but improves the more you drink it – or gets you drunk enough to overlook the sweetness. Either way, I like it. Probably consumed at the perfect age, I’d say. Old enough to gain some complexity and lose some sweetness, but young enough not to have any noticeable oxidation. Good. (3.9)

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pitc black with a beige head and lush oily viscousity. Aromas of roasted malts, coffee/espresso, alcohol drenched vanilla pods and some herbal impressions develop, surprisingly lean on the aroma side. Very fine perlage just enough to lift the palate with a smooth, creamy slick texture and a full body. Sweet, mouthcoating, with a light alcohol bitter stench developing being kept though in check by the sweetness. Lasting finish with a slight herbal spice burn. Potent.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Shared 2008 bomber with a black wax finish in July 2016.
Dark thick motor oil appearance with a fine light brown head.
Rich deep flavor with moderate-high sweetness.
Dark roasted grains and a modicum of hops kick in eventually in the aftertaste to cut the bitterness, leaving an excellent dark roasted grain flavor.

Like a Kylie Jenner Lip Kit this is all hype. Got a free bottle of 2016 wouldn’t buy or go through the carnival-application-ticketing-process. I had high hopes 👎🏻

DLD 2016. Gazing into the cup, I finally arrive at the end of my quest. Constant rain, cold, end less lines, porta johns, countless tasters of other lesser pretenders... Now at last the nectar of the gods... Or is it the other place?
