Excited to try my first dark lord variant, and it is a sweet one! Smell features the port like wine, chocolate, brown sugar malt, and dark fruits especially plum and raisin. Pours jet black with no foam, very fitting for the dark lord name. Taste is as sweet as the smell indicated, the booze helps cut a bit. Additional flavors include plum, barley, vanilla, and red grape. The wine really is full through out. Very smooth and luxurious. Perhaps this is blasphemy, but I like the original better.

Im trying not to unfairly judge this against the other DL varients, because it is weak in that respect but a strong beer on its own.

L - black with no visible head outside a slow but constant cascade of of white bubbles forming in small clusters on the side of the glass.
S - Chocolate, coffee, dark fruits, leather. 
T - sweeter than I expected. Same fudgy base intermingling with dark fruits and a warm boozy finish.
F - thick, chewy, and nice. Gives it a nice warming feeling. Feels like a stout should.
O - overall a weaker varient of DL but a fantastic stout. Would definately drink again if the opportunity arose.
