2009 dark lord had on 6/16/2013 at craftheads in Tokyo.

Pours like motor oil with no head. Almost black but a lttle brown comes through.

Smell just a little booze big dark fruit a vanilla notes. With a little chocolate in the background. A little oxidation from the 4 years of age.

Taste big coffe bitterness yet sweet vanilla and bakers chocolate shine through. No booze in the taste.

Feel almost silky smooth with the right amount of carbonation.

Overall awesome beer that was perfectly aged and ready to be drank.

Nice red wine color upon pouring. Taste is very sweet and sticky. Very complex but i mostly get dark fruits, raisins, figs, and prunes. Its too sweet and almost cloying. Also the mouthfeel is too much, too thick. Very greatful i got to try this but this thing needs at least a year on it. No alcohol burn which is impressive but far from my fav stout.
