2008 Vintage / 2011 Vintage (on tap at Churchkey DC).
Appearance: Motor oil black, decent head and lacing.
Smell: Roasted malt, dark chocolate, dark fruits - particularly prune juice, grape juice, and plum, dark rum, espresso, molasses, licorice, vanilla, and hops.
Taste: Slightly too sweet, lots of roasted malt of course, prune, grape, and plum juice, espresso, molasses, dark chocolate, dark rum, licorice, vanilla, tobacco juice, and hops.
Mouthfeel: It is a big beer, but not the thick oily syrup that is Dark Lord. Very well carbonated.
Drinkability: Good, the 2011 batch was a big improvement over 2010.
Serving type: on-tap
