The_Osprey (9148) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2017
November 2017 - 375ml bottle at home in Richmond as 'Mikkeller X Imperial Stout', white wax capped, 2013 vintage. Opaque black, foamy brown head. Aroma is meaty, some parma violet, some soured cream, chocolate truffles, diesel. Odd mix, which causes some trepidation. Body is rounded, oily, soft carbonation. Taste is salted dark chocolate, some subtle oxidation, woody, some port notes, breathy floral hops with a long salted chocolate cookie finish. Booze is so well integrated. Tastes really good. (7-4-9-5-17=4.2)

Can. Black, large brown head. Aroma coffee, ginger bread, black pepper, soya, caramel. Heavy duty crude oil. Sweet taste, follows the ginger bread aroma. Some bitterness in the finish. A great and balanced beer, but not sure it fully justifies the extraordinary ABV.

Color negro con capa de espuma marrón de tres dedos de grosor (cremosa, grandes burbujas y buena retención). Carbonatación inexistente. Textura bastante cremosa y muy untuosa. Se pega a las paredes de la boca como si fuera pegamento. Aroma alcohólico, ligeros toques de café muy amargo, chocolate puro y ligera acidez (supongo que debido a la levadura de champán). En boca entra dulce, con algo de dark fruits y café, con contrapunto ácido. Final muy alcohólico y amargo. Increíblemente seca. El alcohol y, sobre todo, el amargor se mantienen en postgusto mucho tiempo. Imagino que la levadura de champán ayuda. No sé si es fácil de beber o no (muchos usuarios dicen que sí), lo que sí sé es que he tomado whiskies de 40 grados y más que me han sido más fáciles de tragar e incluso de disfrutar. Porque si bien valoro hacer esto, no me interesa lo más mínimo y creo que seis tragos son más que suficientes. El postgusto es algo excesivo para mí y me faltan matices.

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.

Milk chocolate, dense, dark fruits, an unbelievably drinkable 16% imperial stout. Big!

Sarlacc83 (2290) - 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 it’s what I imagine people think Dark Lord tastes like. There’s just one thing that’s holding me back from a higher score, but I can’t 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.

Sweet and salty.

Blom (848) - Sorø, DENMARK - APR 6, 2016
I’ve 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.
