Big thanks to tony for sharing this one. Pours like the rest of the darklords... Black... Viscous, no head. Nose features sweet brown sugar and caramel paired with coriander and orange followed by brandy and slight smokey notes. Taste is rather sweet with a orangey tone towards the end. Balance isn't terrible, but definitely doesn't match up to the other badl's I've tried. Very sweet overall along with light carb. There are some chocolate covered orange flavors going on but the brandy seems to interfere rather than elevate this. The most unique of the variants and worth a try.

Big thanks to Brian for this one. 750ml waxed and capped bottle into 3F Stemware. Reviewed at a tasting 5/3/14.

Appearance is Dark Lord... pitch black, dense with little to no head and huge legs.

Nose is tobacco, marajiuana, liquorice, grass, pepper, tea, cocoa, and fudge. Aromatic and super awkward.

Opens chocolate, tobacco and fudge. Tea, cinnamon, oak and a brandy sweetness in the middle. Huge marajiuana flavor throughout. More weird tea, spice and pepper towards the end with a big dose of booze, chocolate and fudge. Sticky sweet liquorice aftertaste. Very strange but kinda intriguing.

Full bodied with low carbonation. Oily and slick in the mouth and smooth and warm going down. Messy finish with a sticky aftertaste.

Just a very weird beer. If you're fortunate enough to come across this, brace yourself, its certainly one of a kind.

I was fortunate enough to get a pour of this at Dark Lord Day 2014. Huge thanks to the crazy generous fellow for popping this one open. Poured into a sampler glass.

A: Completely black, poured with a thin line of khaki head that reduced to nothing.
S: A huge blast of chocolate and spices up front. Lingering sweetness along with brandy, slight fruit - very far in the background, but there.
T: Very similar to aroma. The chocolate in this beer is completely overwhelming. The spice compliments, and everything else rounds it out to be chocolate heavy, yet so well balanced it's unbelievable. I love chocolate, so there's also that to consider. (First 5 in taste I've ever given)
M: Carbed to style, feels rich and velvety. Love it.
O: I am bummed the bottle count on this is so low, I know I'll likely never have another chance to enjoy. This is one of the best beers I have ever enjoyed. The balance of flavors, with the combo of the nose is out of this world. First sip I could only think "Oh my God"... Which is apparently what everyone thought who sampled this gem.
