  • Had while at Dark Lord Day 2010. Was a six ounce pour from tap free with your ticket (one per ticket).

    Opaque with a little bit of brown foam that didn't stay around too long. Lacing wasn't there. Could have been because of the damn plastic cheapo cup. :)

    Aroma is fantastic. The vanilla comes up to great you right away. Chocolate and some alcohol also tingle the nose hairs.

    Taste is great stuff. The vanilla adds a nice layer of complexity that seems to also help lessen the effect of the malt sweetness on my palate.

    Big body and ample carbonation. Creamy and thick but smooth like a babies bottom.

    This beer blows regular Dark Lord away. I have had the original (2009 vintage) and I had a 2010 on tap at the same time I had the vanilla 2010 version: damn tasty stuff. Enjoy!
