4.35/5 rDev -3.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25
Did not have the menacing pour I anticipated - dark, brown light showing through. Sits black in the glass with a dark mocha head. Sticks to the glass but not overly retentive, minimal alcohol legs.
Aroma of heavy roast, dark chocolate, some vanilla coffee. Some dark fruits as well, but not very distinctive. Nice, but not very vibrant.
Taste is huge. Big chocolate, heavy roast, some vanilla and dark cherry - slight molasses. Decently bitter but cut with a nice sweetness. Full, smooth well rounded body.
Very good RIS - not the best I have had, but certainly something worth getting a few bottles of.
Serving type: bottle

'13 edition on tap @ firkin.
a: black. frothy, khaki head
s: light chocolate notes. Hints of roasted malts. Bit of licorice in the background
t: milk chocolate pervades throughout. light roasty notes.
m: very creamy. medium carbonation. body is spot on
o: First time having Darkness. Worthy of the hype imo. Only ding might be the aroma which was rather subdued. Mouthfeel is top notch. No reason to age this as it was great fresh.
