UPDATED: JUL 9, 2005 Tap and enjoyed with a travelling Wolhfs: Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 23, 2005
Opaque with a fading tan head and some lace. The aroma has notes of hazelnut, caramel and burnt malt, prune and berry, some lactic sourness, and a hint of piney hops. The nose gets better has it warms. The taste starts quite twangy with a hit of bitters. There is a nutty and roasted overtones followed by an ending of earthy yeast notes and coffee. The feel is biting and yet smooth, medium-bodied dry finish. This is a solid brew and beergeek worthy.
At the brewery: Almost black in color with a creamy-yet-bubbly brown head, the aroma is of roasted malts, burnt coffee, and a touch of dark fruits. Very, very creamy to drink. This tastes alot like coffee with real cream with slight hints of sweet malt and chocolate.Very tasty and creamy through the finish. Drink on, me droogs.richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2005

handbottled bomber courtesy of Duane, poured a solid black with a thin cream colored lacing. aromas of burnt coffee, chocolate, molasses and steamed milk, almost creating an expresso/cappucino smell. amazingly smooth chocolate flavor, lactose at the end, burnt coffee and some sweet vanilla in the middle. velvety smooth body, slides down your throat. a little bit acetic tail, but this could be a result of the heat during transport...either way, a very nice sweet stout. thanks alot duane CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 11, 2005
On tap at the 2005 Great Taste of the Midwest: Pours a rich robust opaque, with dark brown edges and a thin coating of tan head. Aroma is dry, roasty and chocolatey with a touch of buttered popcorn. Nicely balanced and lightly hoppy with plenty of sweet chocolatey malt and lactose. An enjoyable stout that I hope they someday bottle. JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 14, 2005
Tap at brewpub. Very creamy and thick tan head. Dark stout body. Roasted chocolate "malt" and roasted sour milk and grain aroma. Thick, bourbon coated charcoaled wood taste. Some fruitiness in the background and also some slight hops in there. Pretty good... for me, a little too much roasty sour milk.

tap at the brewpub. Pours a very nice looking dark brown/black with a creamy light brown head. Good smell with chocolate and roasted malt, with a nice vanilla presence. Flavor was similar with some milk sweetness. Mouthfeel could have been more creamy, but overall solid for the style. ABUSEDGOAT (2731) - California, USA - AUG 23, 2007
Black pour, somewhat lighter tan head. This was on nitro tap. (damn). Aroma is chocolate, coffee, roast, oats, caramel, a touch of hops. Creamy and smooth, but I would have much preferred it to not be on nitro. Really solid sweetstout that was put on nitro. drainey (234) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 19, 2008
22 oz. bottle. Pours a deep black with a moderate brown head. Aroma is slightly sweet with chocolate and toasted malts. Flavor is nicely sweet, but not overpowering, with a toasty finish. Palate is much lighter than I expected. More of a drinking beer than a sipping beer, which is very nice, but quite different from what I expected. holdenn (2116) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 24, 2008
22oz bottle with an incredibly sweet label and name. Pours a dark black with a beige thin head. Lots of roast in the aroma with some milky sweetness. The pop of roastiness hits the tongue first going to a creamy milky and chocolatey sweetness before ending on that sweet charred note. Body is light but fine for the style. I’m actually surprised this isn’t hopped up, but it probably wouldn’t be very tasty if it was. Well done milk stout. timsilvia32 (449) - from Michigan now in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 11, 2008
Nice black pour with a small amount of cream colored head. Strong aromas of coffee, bakers chocolate. Good roasted flavors of the same, along with roasted malts. Pleasant, somewhat creamy mouthfeel, but could be more full bodied. Finishes with a faint lingering sweetness, but clean. If their intention was to create a drinkable summer stout, Iíd say they accomplished that. I think this is a pretty good sweet stout, but not as good as the Bells or Rogue offerings. I think 3F might be given a bit too much credit in itís other brews based on the reputation of the Dark Lord. The 2 Iíve had of theirís(neither Dark Lord) have been a bit of a let down based on the hype for the brewer.
