I would like to give a quick shout out to my brother in law John for sharing one of his bottles of Dark Lord that he got from attending Dark Lord day this year at the Three Floyd’s Brewery which is located in Indiana. This beer has a hefty 14% ABV and is brewed on a very limited basis yearly.
I found this beer to pour a gorgeous dark black color, creating a brown head that laced while enjoying. The aroma of this beer was rather boozy, but it also had some fantastic caramel, coffee, chocolate, and toffee tones to it. The taste was the same as the chocolate, and coffee show up first before a wonderful smooth yet boozy finish. This Russian Imperial Stout is simply excellent carrying a fantastic balance to it, and a wonderful thick mouthfeel.
If you are lucky enough to get your hands on a bottle of this, do it! There is nothing to be disappointed about with this one, especially if you are a fan of Russian Imperial Stouts.
