Alright, now I have to hunt this Darklord down.

Quite a task. I forgot how good the BrooDoo is as well.

You really need to age Dark Lord before trying it. The samples of 2009 Dark Lord at Dark Lord day were not that stellar, the 2008 Dark Lord (Vanilla bourbon barrel aged) were absolutely amazing and I'm working on trying to clone it.

I'd really like to know what they think is better so I can pick some up and thank them or call them crazy.

I just moved to hammond and live about 5 minutes away from it now. I'm there at least once a week. I've only had one bad encounter with a waitress there, but then again you'll have that anywhere you go. Love the beer and everyone is almost always friendly!

I think a lot of RISs are better: Alesmith Speedway Stout; Southern Tier's line: Mokah, Javah, Choklat; etc. Dark Lord's reputation is from rarity and hype, but it's really not all that. Great, yes, but so are a lot of other Impy Stouts out there.

I've been wanting to try the Alesmith, but I have no idea where to get that. I guess none of the better ones I can get here. I do love Bells Expedition, but DL was much better IMO. Got any more suggestions so I can keep an eye out? I just saw The Party Source here might have Southern Tier, but I doubt it. Liquor Barn doesn't I know.

Victory Storm King is a pretty good RIS as well. I can't compare it to Dark Lord, since my lone bottle of Dark Lord is still unopened.

Expedition is pretty good too. Because I'm a stupid scientist, it really all comes down to go out and get lots of RISs, set up a blind taste test, don't get too stumblin' drunk, and see what you like the best!

Saying, that, I have never had DL next to another RIS.

I love 3F and a lot of their brews: Alpha King/Klaus, Broodoo, Dreadnaught, Blackheart, Gumballhead, Dark Lord, etc. Wonderful brewery, and we need more like them. The brewpub is a sweet too. They have pretty good food, and a great beer selection. But you can run into douche-bags there, but in my experience they were customers not employees. The employees I met were pretty cool.

Don't forget Robert the Bruce.

They're all good beers.
