A beer that just punches you in the face

It’s always good to know people that know their beer. Just like Semi’s old friend that we met in Chicago. We hung out in the backyard and all of a sudden he pulled out a bottle of Darklord Imperial Stout from 3 Floyds Brewing, of the vintage from 2013. This 15 percent ABV monster was destined to be my drink of the day. It had a dark body that reminded me of motor oil with a dark beige creamy foam. The smell was sweet malty with a hint of fermentation sourness to it. When drinking it it felt like soy sauce but had flavours of chocolate, coffee and a hint of sour cherry all round up in this malty sweetness. A beer that reminded more of a good bottle of wine than your usual after work drink. Just fucking awesome.

Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Tacolexa for your fantastic hospitality, even though it was short!
