Dark Lord gets a bit of a bad wrap among certain groups, but it is still a good beer. If you thing is sucks, send me your bottles please. ... The review is of Dark Lord 2011, on tap at Dark Lord Day 2014.
Appearance - Among stouts, this one has a frightening thickness. Black like used motor oil, it sticks to the sides of the glass nicely. A slight mocha head crowns the glass.
Smell - The aroma of Dark Lord makes me think of Christmas cookies and the molasses used to make ginger bread cookies. You can almost smell the thickness here.
Taste - On the initial taste, I am made to think of the amount of sugar my dad puts in his coffee. It almost seems like overly sweet coffee with the molasses of ginger bread cookies and dark chocolate. The taste coats the tongue and lingers on the back of the throat. The burnt malts linger in the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel - This is thick. The sticky sweetness makes it seem even thicker than it really is.
Overall - This is a great celebration beer. I like it a lot.
Serving type: on-tap
