An American example of an English style of beer made for the Russian Royals. This ale deep black in color, finally released after being aged for 16 months. Made using large amounts of malt and roasted barley yields the most robust beer we make. Thick coffee like flavor and aroma. This beer is well hopped and finishes bitter. This is a real treat

Ungstrup (36475) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 12, 2012
Bottled. A black beer with a dark brown head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, roasted malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, roasted malt, and soy sauce, leading to a dry, roasted, and alcoholic finish.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 12, 2012
Bottle at Paps tasting. Ghee, this is black-black. With no head. Prunes, licorice, roasted malts in the nose. Flavor is more impressive. Overripe fruity, darkly hidden secrets, sweet sticky licorice syrup, coffe roast. A bit too boozy. And maybe a bit too old? Full body, engine oily, flat carbonation.

Bottle. Poured a dark black. Nose is dark licorice and boozy. Way complex imp stout. Its got a layer followed by another level. Overall has lots of sweetness but by no means cloying. Rich and intense with dark fruit roasted malts. Easy to drink way too easy drink. Abv totally hidden. Finish is sweet woody and good.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2011
From notes: Pours pitch black and completely opaque without even the slightest trace of lighter color when and a thin dark mocha head that immediately settles into a thin ring. Minimal spots of lacing. Sweet boozy aroma with lots of toasted malt, dark fruit, oak and vanilla. Hints of bittersweet dark chocolate, caramel, toffee, roasted coffee bean, burnt toast and marshmallow as well as vinous fruit, especially grape, raisin and plum. Chewy medium body with a nice balance of sweet booze, roasted malt, silky chocolate and vinous dark fruit. A bit hot up front with lots of boozy alcohol flavor but this is quickly countered by a sweet and slightly roasty malt presence. Hints of silky bittersweet dark chocolate, toffee, coffee bean, hazelnut and caramel. Theres also a slight earthy oak presence that gives off notes of vanilla and marshmallow, slightly mellowing things out a bit. More sweetness toward the end of the palate with hints of vinous raisin, fig, grape and plum. Although the alcohol is evident throughout, the ABV is decently masked with subtle warmth in the finish. Overall this beer is pretty tasty but has a bit too strong of an alcohol flavor. Nevertheless, this beer is still tasty and pretty quaffable.

Growler from the brewpub. Pours thick dark brown with a nice tan head that quickly disapates. Smells of roasted coffee and sweet malt. Tastes of dark roasted coffee, some mocha, slightly smokey, and long, sweet aftertaste. The beer does get thin and watery as it warms, but very good, none the less.

Bottle ... I threw my back out and wanted to treat myself. This works. Nose throws a mix of coffee/roast and berry/sweet...apparent bitterness. It takes some work to formulate a head. Flavor put me back. Unbelievable! A dark chocolate bitterness hides behind an upfront (and unique) cherry/blackberry, plum...this is not your normal impy stout. Very, very rich, thick, syrup like palate...decadent. The kind of beer that you cannot put down ... you want to keep tasting, then think, then immediately taste again. Such a complex, cool beer. And unfortunately, probably another beer Ill never see again. A NON CLOYING VERSION OF DARK LORD. Thanks Derek!!!!
