Three Floyds Dark Lord - A Guest Post

Here's a guest post from one of our trusted brethren in Illinois - read and salivate. READ AND SALIVATE!

Ankerhaus Roving Reporter – Dark Lord

This past weekend a friend from out of town requested a night’s quarter in our guest bedroom. We love having friends stay over to share a few beers and a few laughs, but this visit turned out to be extra special. As a “thank you”, our guest brought with him a bottle of Three Floyds Dark Lord.

For the uninitiated, let me explain. Once a year, at the Three Floyds brewery in Munster, IN they host Dark Lord Day. It’s a public event with many great beers on tap, but the real draw is Dark Lord itself. “A demonic Russian Style Imperial Stout, brewed with Intelligensia coffee, Mexican vanilla, and Indian sugar this beer defies description.” At 13% ABV (15% this year), it’s what I like to call a sip’n beer and let me tell you, it’s amazing.

Of course, showing up to Dark Lord Day isn’t nearly enough. In order to buy just four (4!) bottles, you have to be one of the lucky few that managed to get a golden ticket. This year, with the popularity of Dark Lord increasing, golden ticket sales were a real nightmare. Hopefully Three Floyds will figure out a way to resolve that issue with the obviously preferred solution being: brew more!

Great beer and good friends come from all over the world. Hopefully you’ll be at the Ankerhaus when I bring a bottle or two of Dark Lord for a tasting.
