2005 Orange Wax bottle. Sumptuous smooth imperial stout. Bags of soft fruit, cherry, raspberry, blueberry and blackcurrant. Milk chocolate, malt, molasses and a dry coffee finish. No bitterness. Fantastic! Lives up to the hype!

2004 Red Wax. Opaque black beer. Tidy coffee coloured head. Minerall nose with mild coffee. Smooth airy soft palate, viscous and sumptuous. Sweet molasses and coffee with traces of wood and chocolate. The coffee gets stronger - rich and tangy and creamy. Dry finish. 2nd half of the bottle was pure sludge!

2006 Gold Wax. Opaque black beer, tidy chocolate coloured head. Rich malty nose. Sumptuous soft palate. Rich coffee malt with a streak of dark chocolate. Tiny bit of molasses and soy. Trace of red berry fruits. A little warmth in the soft finish. Coffee aftertaste. Nice but not a patch on the 2005.

2007 Silver Wax. Smooth and quite mild dark malt! Traces of coffee and chocolate. Brief and mild yeasty molasses. A little Port Wine. Nice cherry and blackcurrant fruits. Good year!

Vanilla, bourbon, caramel, dried fruits aroma. Taste follows aroma. Alcoholic well hidden

Thick and sticky with sweetness. Amazing fullness. So very sweet it’s almost unbearable. Molasses and malty caramely sweet thickness

Rocznik 2017. Trzeba przyznać, że wspaniale się prezentuje - oleiście i gęsto się nalewa, czarne, nieprzejrzyste, piana drobnopęcherzykowa, zbita, ładnie koronkuje i dość długo się utrzymuje. Aromat: silna wanilia, czekolada, śliwka i ..sos sojowy + żelazo?? Raczej średnio. uu ale to się pije - mega gęste i oleiste, faktura morduje, melasa, tony czekolady, wanilia, śliwka, wiśnie, kawa z mlekiem i jednak sos sojowy jest gdzieś tam wyczuwalny. Alkohol wręcz mistrzowsko ukryty. Bomba #teamcukrzyca. Świetne piwo, ale piłem sporo lepszych.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2017 Dark Lord vertical notes: 2009 - roast and caramel. Some dark chocolate. A little rust from age. Black pour with ok head. Not what I’d call superior. Some soy 2010 - chocolate. Roast and caramel. Oily. Rust like 2009 but a little less. Still overrated. 2012 - sugar bomb. Mostly caramel and chocolate. Oily. A mess.

Slodka i gesta bomba aromatow i smakow w czarnym kolorze z niskim wysyceniem i goryczka na srednim poziomie. Ladna piana, alkohol praktycznie niewyczuwalny, dlugo by opisywac wszystkie cechy. Zdecydowanie MUST TRY!

Bardzo dobre piwo, co prawda bardzo słodkie, poza tym są posmaki stoutowe niezłe. Hajp za duży, ale piwo naprawdę dobre.

Rocznik 2014. Umówmy się - to jest dobre piwo. Ale generalnie nie warto było. W aromacie fajny porter bałtycki, wciul karmelu, sos sojowy trochę czekolada. W smaku jest cieliste, pełne, zakleja, ale zakleja karmelem i kikkomanem. Piwo klasy najlepszych warek porteru warmińskiego. SERIO.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2017 Bardzo słodkie, wyklejające. Ze słodyczą trzciny cukrowej. Troszkę za dużo sosu sojowego jak dla mnie :p

Bottle pour. Pours a pitch black with a light head. Slightly smokey on the nose, soy sauce, balsamic, but slightly minty and grassy. Very complex. Incredibly smooth. Syrup vibe. Medium bitterness, umami, complex bodied and smooth finish. Hard to find any faults.
