_angst_ (4802) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2013
Bomber received in trade. Thank you rfraga7. Pours close to black with a frothy and creamy dark mocha head that is pretty quick to dissipate while leaving no trace worth mentioning. Smell is sweet and fruity with roasted malts, prunes, dark chocolate, dark roast coffee, alcohol, sweet liquorice candy, resinous wood, moist soil, minerals and hints of peat and vanilla. Taste is sweet and bitter with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, prunes, raisins, resinous wood, moist soil, bitter chocolate, vanilla, burnt cookies, butterscotch hard candy, salty liquorice and alcohol. Mouthfeel is soft, creamy, boozy, tiny astringent and near full bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, raisins, prunes, alcohol, bitter chocolate and salty liquorice. Intense and tasty. crossovert (12642) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 28, 2013
Decent blend, surely seemed too good to be true with so many mixed, it sin’t diverse though, pretty standard cocoa, bourbon, caramel, roast stout. mwbrady12 (469) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 27, 2013
Incredible aroma, incredible pour, complex yet smooth taste and warming mouthfeel.

Huge beer. Has a big malty chocolate taste upfront. Massive whiskey flavor on the way down. Thick pour from 22oz at dark lord day riversideAK (6260) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 20, 2013
High glycemic index sugary dark malty sweetness up front, some soy sauce, darker roasted malts, some coffee is here as well. Definitely dominated by Dark Lord and Darkness. Black pour with a dark brown head, thick looking, nice legs and stuff. Flavors of super sweet dark fruit and residual sugars up front, soy sauce in the mid palate, some coffee and roasted malts show up and it is finished by strong residual sugars and dark fruit again. Super thick viscuous body, strong alcohol presence. Interesting idea but too sweet and strong. I guess I am a big floppy vag. "Meh" (Jon, 2008).

On tap at Mikkeller and Friends’ GRand Opening. Pours an opaque black with a tiny beige head. Quite sweet with aromas of roasted malts, chocolate and vanilla. Some residual sugars. Tiny hints of band aid. Full bodied. Medium carbonation. Finishes with more roasted malts. wheresyourball (572) - El Cajon, California, USA - APR 14, 2013
Bomber from a trade, poured into a tulip and shared with friends. Pours pitch black with a small tan head. Nose is chocolate, toffee, vanilla. Taste is... just odd, with a lot of coffee bitterness and some sweetness as well. I could taste the Dark Lord in there, but the other beers didn’t enhance it. Full bodied. Overall pretty disappointing. chrisv10 (17288) - DENMARK - MAR 31, 2013
Tap @ Mikkeller, Stefansgade. Black with small beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate and coffee. Flavour is roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, liquorice, hop and medium sweet. Defreni (3153) - Husum, DENMARK - MAR 26, 2013
Fad: Kulsort cremet øl med et lækkert skumhoved. Duften er masser af kaffe og en tand vanilie. Mundfylden sidder i skabet og de høje procenter er komplet skjult. Virkelig en lækker øl. ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAR 25, 2013
22oz, yellow waxed bomber via trade. glad to have the chance to try this intriguing blend. pours a dark, hazy brown and sits jet black in the glass capped by a creamy, dark khaki head that leaves thick rings of lace on the glass. aroma is truly excellent with notes of rich dark chocolate, raisins, figs, heavy roast, and cold coffee backed by subtle vinous notes, vanilla, toffee, and smokey earth. the aroma actually seems to shift and morph with every swirl of the glass and it’s easy to pick out elements of each of the blended beers. flavor is absolutely delicious and certainly immense in complexity with a rush of dark fruit notes including figs, raisins, black plums, dates up front that are quickly swallowed by baker’s chocolate, dense espresso, toffee, and massive roasted malts followed by notes of earth, muted hops, licorice, and a subtle smokiness on the back end. palate is on the lighter side of full bodied but the light carbonation gives it creamy, dense mouthfeel and it finishes with a touch of boozy heat. overall, i am pleasantly impressed by this agressive blend. it works, and i think the year in the bottle has really helped the flavors come together. damn good beer.
