Three Floyds releases their Dark Lord RIS this Saturday at their pub!

I am soooo there!!!!!!


FWIW, anybody know what the bottle limit is going to be? I may pick up some extras for use as HBT trading material.

My 2007 Stone RIS is in the fridge awaiting the right moment. I need to get another for the cellar.

Did anyone make it to Three Floyds yesterday? I took the hour and a half drive to get down there at about 4:30 and they were already out of Dark Lord. They had some other great beers that made it worth the trip though. I guess I'll have to wait until next year.

I'll try and grab a Stone this week...otherwise I'll grab something else and review it. RIS's are really hard for me to review because I have such a poor ability to translate what my palate tells me into words and the good ones are always super complex, but what the hey!

Its excelent. I scored some by visiting the website to see where it's distributed. They don't keep it out in the open, only keep some in the back for people who ask for it. I lucked into 6 of them Drank 2 and I'm keeping the rest to open once every 6 months for the next 2 years.

Love Stones brews.

I had it as soon as the distributor dropped off the cases at our shop, long before this thread got posted. I'd been waiting for it. Didn't see this thread till today though.

Damn fine stuff. Viscous, a little "hot" from the ABV, strong roasted flavors and aroma. Bitterness is spot-on for an RIS, though, but I'm missing some kind of hop flavor/aroma. I like this stuff, alot, but for my money, I'm a bigger fan of Avery's 'Czar'. I know some people on these boards like to hate on Avery, but damnit, the Czar and Mephistopheles are magnificent. But regardless, I love the Stone version too. Highly recommended.

It's tough to drink Stone when I can get Black Panther at Golden Valley.

I've got mine. So which week is this beer the BOTW? Anyone else interested in doing a weekly tasting and reviving the Beer of the Week?
