Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Fantastyczne piwo, bardzo podobne do Dark Lorda. Gęste, oleiste. Czekolada, ciemne owoce, sos sojowy, melasa. Pyszne.

Sarlacc83 (2237) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 9, 2016
Bottle thanks to Douglas. A: OIly black, thin mocha head, and legs. N: Leather, cocoa, tobacco, smoke, biscuit, intense brown sugar, molasses, oxidation, oak, caramel, vanilla, plenty of earth, and some soy sauce. T: Very sweet and smokey. M: Heavy oily body, no alcohol, soft carbonation. O: This is very tasty - and its what I imagine people think Dark Lord tastes like. Theres just one thing thats holding me back from a higher score, but I cant quite put my finger on it.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2016 Bottle. 2013. Pours a cloudy brown with a tiny bubble of head. The aroma is massive sugary dark fruit. Amazing. Smoke, dark fruit essence, sugary hot but so drinkable. Massive smoky dark leather and tobacco. Amazing. The aroma is just so huge. Essence of dark fruit. Much like Expy, which is the best.

Blom (837) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 6, 2016
Ive been saving this 2013-bottle for some time. Black and velvet-like. Creamy texture, thick. Amazing aroma with notes of coffee, dark chocolate, sirup. Sweetness and bitterness working great in unison. Almost overwhelming complexity. Best sipped and shared. Might get cloying if enjoyed in larger quantites. One to remember and dream about tasting again.

slowrunner77 (11600) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 7, 2015
Bottle shared: black as night pour, little head or lacing. Aroma is deep dark fruits, char, roast, coffee. Flavor is a touch aggressive - a little too much bitter and charred/burnt grain. It would be better without that as it is almost balanced with sweeter malt and chocolate and bitter coffee, but not quite.

ctipping (1835) - Florida, USA - AUG 31, 2015
375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. 2013 bottle. Originally reviewed 9/8/2014. Black body. No head. A few bubbles. Very leggy. Smells of fudge. Raisins. Deep roast. Booze. Very dynamic stout flavors. Chocolate. Molasses. Fudge. Moves into deep roast. Bitter coffee and some burnt malts. Medium low carbonation. Very heavy and sweet. I was surprised by how good this is. More than just an over-sweet monster of a stout
