2016 Vintage. Jet black, viscous pour with no head at all. Aroma of oak, honey. Huge thick mouth. Taste is full of sugar, just loads of sugary notes. Booze soaked fruit, cherries, honey, a little oxidation. Booze is hidden extremely well. A little bit of oak and bourbon on the tongue. Pretty damn good.

Pours a dark brown with strong aromas. Very full taste and excellent finish. A beer I would recommend.

Dzagoda (40) - POLAND - FEB 4, 2018
Rocznik 2016. W aromacie palony słód, czekolada, kawa, marcepan, wanilia, duszone śliwki, suszone figi, stara fajka opalona tytoniem, dobrze wyschłe owoce orzecha włoskiego polane odrobina sosu sojowego. Za chwile nadchodzi to, co nadejść musi. Miodowe nuty łączą się z wonią Burbonu wypełniając trunek gdzie tylko się da. Nozdrza wręcz zalepione słodyczą i wypełnione esencją trunku. Po przełknięciu pierwszych łyków już wiem, iż jest to prawie lustrzane odbicie zapachu o konsystencji prawie likieru, tylko podane z jeszcze większą, przyjemną intensywnością. Dochodzą posmaki gorzkiego kakao, mokrej beczki, palonego cukru, kandyzowanej wiśni czy winnego akcentu.

Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, coffee, burned sugar, creme brulee, licorice. Taste is very sweet, bourbony, creamy, thick, licorice, creme brulee. Viscous, hard to drink.

So glad I opened this one with some good friends. Fudgey chocolatey goodness. A bit on the sweet side but it was enjoyable nonetheless.

dzudohonor (363) - POLAND - AUG 18, 2017
PAKK 2017 - Jeden z degustatorów niezadowolony z potężnie wyklejającej słodyczy ocenił na 3.7. Absolutny #teamcukrzyca, w aromacie migdały, orzechy włoskie, na drugim planie tytoń, miód, praliny, wanilina i burbon. W smaku ulepek, brownie z orzechami włoskimi, przypomina likier bailey’s. Ocena łączona 4.5

NightHawk91 (96) - POLAND - AUG 16, 2017
2015. Soy sauce makes the aroma pretty weak. A subtle bourbon barrel. ALMOST too sweet. No alcohol. Drinkable and in my taste but a bit simple.

4.3
faroeviking (11389) - Chupando chellas es como ellas, FAROE ISLANDS - MAR 4, 2017
Botella. Late Fall Monster Tasting. (note is funny enough hard to read)...Black. Sweet dark roasty malty aroma, vanilla, wood, chocolate, dark fruits. Flavour: heavily sweet, roasty malt, dark fruits, chocolate, alcohol.

4.2
Rando7 (787) - Iowa, USA - DEC 18, 2016
Bottle pours black viscous with cocoa colored head. Aroma roast, malts, dark fruit, bourbon. Flavor all the above plus some licorice and molasses. Great thick and smooth mouth feel. Finish some soy sauce and licorice with alcohol burn.

Really is better as it warms. Very good but the base beer (Dark Lord) is no longer unique and there are a lot of good beers out there that can compete with it.
