3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
draft at revolution- nicely done, RIS- enjoyed after dinner- booze a bit Hefty up front, and lacking in complexity, but likable enough. Didn’t score much lower than Dark Lord in my opinion.
On tap; pour is dark brown with a khaki head that does retain well; nice lacing present in this glass as well. Its dark, though. Anyway, the nose has more defined cocoa than the barrel aged version, and less of the booziness. Dark chocolates, raisins, light ash; im on the fence as far as which version I enjoy more. regardless, this is a fairly nice imperial, but I find the ash a touch off putting honestly. chibuck (3521) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2011
On tap at the brewpub into a 5oz taster...A dark black pour with a nice dark tan head good retention and lacing...Aroma is SUPER sweet, tons of milk/cream type sweetness, light vanilla finish no typical choc/coffee/or bitterness I look for...Taste is also super creamy which kills the drinkability a bit for me. A little bitter coffee presents but again just too sweet.
An above average stout, but just too damn sweet! MIBRomeo (2579) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 17, 2010
Black pour w/ a huge tan head and lots of lacing. Light malty aroma hints of bourbon pretty syrupy. Full creamy thick body. Sweet syruppy alcohol taste lots and lots of malt. Too sweet. bu11zeye (13215) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 12, 2010
(Draught) Pours an opaque black body with a medium creamy tan head. Aroma of caramel, coffee, roasted malt, light pine, and chocolate. Flavor of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, raisins, anise, dates, and light ash with a dry, bitter finish. SrSilliGose (3332) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - SEP 26, 2010
tap at FFF tried side by side with gom. boatload of fresh roast, coffee, bittersweet dark chocolate. some anise, light molasses and a hint of figs. nice and dry and bitter. awesome beer, right up my alley. perfect fresh and on tap. leaves you begging for more if you know what i mean. though this was certainly good, i would chug Gomorrah all the live long day.

p black with tan reddish head nose charred brown sugar molasses
ash Caramel corn and piney hop notes Fl are sweet molasses and toffee
really sticky And thick mouth feel, doesn’t exactly finish as sweet is
it smells or even tastes, sorta like dark lord kept in check/with
focus. a nice dark sugar sweet impy that’s actually drinkable and
achieves a nice balance in the use of sugars. Really solid if u like
sweet jmpys i just prefer the over hopped kind. 8/5/7/4/15 fear025 (214) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - SEP 11, 2010
On tap at the Three Floyds brewpub.
Aroma:Lots of roasty notes, dark malt, chocolate, a little caramel.
Appearance:Black with dark brown foam.
Taste:Very dark roasted grains and Dark chocolate hit me on the first taste. The flavor slowly fades until all that is left is just a slight taste of dark chocolate. The hops are very well masked by the extreme darkness of this beer.
Palate:The mouthfeel on this beer is amazing. The body is hugely thick, with great carbonation that bubbles from my tongue to the back of my throat.
Overall:This is an amazing beer. Hugely dark chocolate. A little bit harsh on the throat. Very tasty. It’s reminiscent of dark lord, but not nearly as sweet and flavorful.

Had this on tap at Revolution a few weeks back. Poured black with a brown head that dissipated very slow to the edge. Aroma had strong roasted malt notes with a slight bitterness underlying from dark chocolate. Flavor was similar with roasted malt dominating and dark chocolate backbone. The alcohol was much more pronounced in the finish of the beer. tjthresh (1872) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - SEP 7, 2010
Draft at FFF. Pour is pitch black with a thick dark brown head. The nose is a lot like sticking you face in a bag of coffee beans, with a bit of grassy hops. Quite a bit going on in the flavor with espresso, dark chocolate, tobacco, and soy sauce being what really stood out to me. Very rich and thick. Almost too much actually. wedgie9 (2703) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 3, 2010
Tasted on draft at Revolution. Pours oil black with a thick brown head that isn’t going anywhere. Nose is super roasted malts with coffee, dard chocolate, a hint of molasses , and some hops. The flavor comes through with chocolate on the front with some molasses and roast in the middle. The flavors finish with coffee, vanilla, and dark chocolate bitterness. The body is huge and sticky with average carbonation and a long bitter chocolate finish. This beer is very dry for being so high in alcohol, and so young. The alcohol integrates nicely on the palate, and leaves only a light burn in my chest.
