So they want me to pay $10 to have the privilege to spend $16 per bottle on their beer? This has gotten out of hand.

The $10 goes to charity. And I think the set amount of beer you get the opportunity to buy is a case (six bottles). So, that's $1.67 charitable donation per beer.

How about 3F spares us dark lord day, produces more of this righteous product that the beer drinking public obviously wants, and we can decide for ourselves which charities we want to contribute to? Yes, I'm bitter because I can't get to dark lord day.

Personally, I think that donating $10 to charity in order to be guaranteed DL beer is better than waiting in line at DLD for hours only to be out of luck. My friends went last year and got screwed. This way you can skip the event if you don't get a ticket. I much prefer the new method.

Skip this year..and have your own next year(and the year after)


18# 2 row
2# munich malt
2# Roasted Barley
1# Chocolate malt
8 oz Flaked Barley
8 oz Crystal 60L
8 oz Crystal 120L
8 oz Black patent malt
8 oz flaked oats
1.5 # honey
.5# molasses

3 oz Chinook @ 60 min shoot for 85 IBU..thats what I have read anyway

Cali yeast(massive starter or yeast cake)

1.123 OG
1.031 FG 13% ABV

I would probably shoot for 153 or 154 mash to keep it from going too dry..
vanilla bean and coffee or espresso in secondary...

The Dark Lord can be made\

Where did you get this recipe? Or is it just a guess?

I did a bit of searching online and worked out what I would percieve....This is such a big beer the amounts could be a bit off..but it probably would be in the ball park..

I've only had DL once. a friend and I split one bomber. So I had half a bottle of DL. It was the only beer I had that evening

We finished it at around 10:00 pm. The caffeine in that beer kept me awake until 7:30 am the next morning. I called my boss around 6:30 to tell him I wouldn't be in that day.

It was the first time I ever called off work due to drinking ONE beer.
