Pours pitch black with a very small brown head fading away into an oily ring. Good sludgy lacing down the glass.
Intensely sweet aroma. Dark chocolate, vanilla and molasses. Maybe a touch of oak.
Major sweetness bomb. Loads of dark chocolate, fudge and vanilla with just a touch of roastiness. Very dessert like quality although it's hard to drink more than a few ounces of this. The addition of vanilla and booze helps balance out the rough flavors of the base beer.
Very thick mouthfeel although maybe not as much as I'd expect. Low carbonation.
Great beer although drinkability is low due to the intense sweetness. Much better than regular Dark Lord, but probably not quite worth the hype.
