What the brewer says

“A de­monic Rus­sian-style im­pe­rial stout brewed with cof­fee, Mex­i­can vanilla, and In­dian su­gar, this beer de­fies de­scrip­tion. Avail­able one day a year, in April at the brew­ery: Dark Lord Day.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Mo­lasses, sherry ox­i­dized char­ac­ter with mod­er­ate raisin, Toot­sie Roll, dark brown su­gar, dark cherry, plum, and blue­berry notes. Light gin­ger spici­ness, Mod­er­ate al­co­hol lin­ger­ing as it warms.” Fla­vor: “Like eat­ing an al­co­holic gin­ger­bread house. Heavy sweet­ness, mo­lasses, gin­ger­bread spici­ness that ex­tends into the af­ter­taste. Cloy­ing sweet­ness cov­ers ev­ery­thing but the gin­ger­bread. Fin­ishes with light bread, choco­late, and cof­fee.” Over­all: “Too sweet, too much mo­lasses and su­gar, cloy­ing. Other char­ac­ter­is­tics are present such as spici­ness, cof­fee, and vanilla, but they are di­min­ished by the sweet­ness. One ounce is al­most too much.”
