Opened a bottle of 2013 Dark Lord last night. I have to say, it was a grand disappointment. After pouring in a tulip glass, I gave it whiff and was caught off guard by the interesting, funky nose on the beer. The flavor, however, was far worse. Overwhelmingly sweet, bland, and metallic. There are minimal tasting notes here, as it literally tasted like sugar, metal, roasted barley, and cardboard.

May have had a bad bottle - will update I find different results with other bottles.

I had a 2012 bottle of Dark Lord, aged roughly one year. Thick, caramel colored head. Very sweet and syrupy in taste, almost like molasses, also a slight hint of cherries. Dark brown in color. Alcohol is masked very well for something being 15 percent. Overall, a great brew, strongly recommended if you enjoy stouts.
