Review – Three Floyds Dark Lord Russian Imperial Stout
Does this beer live up to its hype? Any other beer website has made this the must have beer. People stand in line at Three Floyds in Munster Indiana to get their hands on this. I was lucky enough to get it in a trade, and I held my own “TheFullPint.com Dark Lord Day” with the rest of the crew.
From Three Floyds: A Demonic Imperial Russian stout brewed with INTELLIGENTSIA coffee, vanilla, and molasses. NOW AVAILABLE in bottles!!! DarkLord is only available once a year at DarkLord Day April 26th -2008 ThreeFloydsBrewpub.
Three Floyds Dark Lord Russian Imperial Stout 2008 – 22oz bottled sealed in black wax, poured into a taster sized glass. 13% abv.
Aroma: Brownie mix and nose tickling alcohol.
Taste: Dark chocolate, milk chocolate truffles. Bourbon and tart cherries. When it gets wamer, a lot of vanilla comes out. Trust me, I could find more and more flavors in this, given more of a supply.
Overall: Awesome, complex, strong, and definitely worth the hype.
