Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2017, red session. Aroma has intense booze, bacon, umami and smoked malt. Taste starts sweet with fried/smoked bacon, quite intense but it gets more balanced towards the finish. Sticky, syrupy body.

Tap @ Mikkeller Beer Celebration 2017 (Red Session)
Dark Lord 2016 - Dwarven Power Bottom (15%) BA Russian Imperial Stout Czarne jak smoła z wysoką, gęstą i trwałą pianą. Miażdżący aromat mokrego drewna, dębiny, zbutwiałych słoi. Masywna, niekończąca się wanilia, kokos, belgijskie pralinki. W smaku pełne wyklejające usta i podniebienie. Wanilia, kawa z mlekiem, czekolada nadziewana, kokos. Gęste jak olej silnikowy, gładkie, kremowe. Alkohol świetnie zamaskowany, rozgrzewa od środka, ale ani na sekundę nie wychodzi przed szereg. Jedno z tych piw, których się nigdy nie zapomina. Genialne!

deyholla (11606) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 21, 2017
Sampled from the tap at GTMW 2016. Pours an oily black with a dark brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has strong sweet dark grains, roasted malts, chocolate and a touch of dark wine backing. Flavor has lots of sweet dark grains, chocolate and roasted malts with just touch of wine barrel.

From notes. Enjoyed this during the 2nd Annual Kelly’s Island Bottle Share on September 18. 750 mL bottle. 2016 vintage as Dwarven Power BottomThe pour is just as black and oily thick as you’d want, just like the other Dark Lord variants so far. There is a thin ring of light brown head and no lace. The aroma is really sweet. There is a nice maltiness and a good barrel character here. I like how there isn’t any soy. The light oak is a nice touch. The flavor is terrible. The Muscat barrels are just dominant and don’t let anything else happen. This is like a fucking tire fire. Burning rubber and a light charred oak. I can’t stand it. The mouth feel is awesome. The viscosity is heavy and the carbonation is soft and subtle. The aftertaste is lingeringly sweet and oaky with a hint of that tire fire lingering around. Ugh, this had such high hopes.
