More port than Dark Lord...the port really shines here, nice and fruity while laying a smooth blanket atop the base beer. The Dark Lord shows fudgey underneath, and some hints of teriyaki poke up in both the nose and in the flavor. Residual sugars are large as well.

Nice port qualities really meld well and shine bright, while evening out..and in some cases...hiding the "finer" qualities of the base beer. Those looking for a smoothed out port forward stout that certainly doesn't scream Dark Lord will most likely be pleased.

Bottle split two ways and I actually wanted more....fun beer.
