4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Tasted 7/8/11. 22oz bomber. #51/165. Thanks to phaleslu for sharing! Pours dark and pitch with a trace tan head. Aromas of earthy, vegetal notes with a smokey malt aspect. Burnt marshmallows and a good dose of peppers. Full bodied and hot with a big palate. Odd, yet surprisingly rounded. The peppers and the heat are apparent, but they blend decently with the barrel aging. Good heat, good body and nicely blended. It got the silver from the series.

Good beer. Not exactly the flavors I want in a stout. But still a nice example of a barrel aged beer.
First drank: DLD 2015

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by Douglas. Thanks!
A: Dark black body with brown edges. Not much head. Legs.
N: Bourbon, chili pepper, espresso, caramel, more chillies, burnt fruit rollups. Oak.
T: Spicy and sweet.
M: Treacly, thick body. Sticky. Alcohol is contained. There is significant burnination.
O: A good variant. DL is big enough and sweet enough to cover up some of the burn, but it’s definitely not for the type of person who chooses ’mild’.

Bottle 232 of 417. 2013 version. Pours a dark brown color with almost no head. A wonderful nose of dark fruit, chillies and light vanilla. A bit thin, vanilla, green peppers, tropical sweet citrus, lots of peppers pulling loads of flavors here. Bourbon, vanilla. The overall flavor is heat, dark fruit, bourbon. A bit of a thin palate. Pretty good.

Catching up on RBAG 2014 notes backlog... Bottle, shared by kbudd-- thanks Kevin! Same high viscosity pour as the regular Dark Lord. The base palate is packed with dark residual sugars and heavy malts, sticky bourbon sweetness, and a really fantastic vegetal peppery character that leaves moderate heat deep in the throat long into the finish. This is the King of all chilli beers. Awesome!
