22oz waxed bottle poured into a CBS snifter.
A - Pours with a slightly thin appearance and sits in the glass with a very deep and dark brown color. A finger of frothy mocha colored head sits on top with very good staying power. Lots of webby lacing left as the head slowly fades to the surface.
S - Roasty black coffee, thick with dark fruit, booze, mild molasses
T - Lots of chocolate up front, alcohol, estery, bitter hops, cocoa, roasted malts, touch of licorice, sugary sweetness.
M - Thick and syrupy in body with a medium carbonation level. A bit sticky and sweet overall.
O - Without really thinking about it, I pretty much get a little bit from each of the components in the blend - syrupy sweetness from Dark Lord, firm hoppy bitterness from Darkness, rich coffee from the Beer Geek, and a sort of non-descriptness from the Black Albert (which has never really impressed me). Not sure of the percentages of each beer, but they seem to come thru in approximately equal intensity. A rather interesting beer, although I wouldn't call it outstanding. The flavor components fight each other a bit and keep it from establishing its own character.
