Thanks brian for opening this. Aroma is very sweet, lots of suragry 12 darklord plus a bit of bourbon. Taste is sweet and spicy, not as much heat as ive heard. Sweet carmel and peppers, chocolate. Better than i expected it to be. Bourbon is there but not as strong as the peppers or sweetness.

750 ml orange waxed bottle poured in a FFF mini snifter. 2013 vintage. A: Pours a viscous, oily black color with a dark tan head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin ring. Some small splotches of lace are left down the glass. S: Light bourbon with oak. Roasted malts, a little soy with some chocolate and pepper flesh. Minimal heat with some caramel sweetness. T: Notes of chocolate and bourbon up front with a nice vanilla and oak barrel sweetness cutting through the middle. The chili pepper flesh comes through on the finish with a slight heat to cut down on some of the sweetness imparted by the barrel and the base beer. M: Thick and oily. Heavy bodied with a medium low carbonation. Sweet with some heat on the finish. O: Very good and the best De Muerte varation. The chili pepper had a nice flesh and heat to it with out being grassy or vegetal. One of the better beers of the voltron. Serving type: bottle 09-01-2013

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2013 thnx to bobochamp ! pours brown/black , no foam. smell is coockies, in some way .. spicy ( peppers ) in the first sip, sambalm-ish spicy in the next. waaw! chilyyyyyy! the heat gets cooled down by the bourbon ( wich makes this version actualky better than the cognac, even to me ! ) its more drinkable, and complex. its superheat, than buttery - soft due to the bourbon. than again peppers in aftertaste. dark lord-sweetness ( = all the taste you get in dl ) is always in the back , less prominant, but very ’there’ ) i cant believe i actualy like a dark lord-variant this much ! rerate/ edit . above was after first glass. i actualy had 3 gfasses ( of the same bottle, closed pretty darn good in between times ) . the older it gets ( opened ) or is it the more i get ’used ’ to it , this keeps getting better. 4,3 uprate to 4,6 . its just damn good, and keeps surprising. unlike dark lord. ( one sip and i have had enough) . a sipper for sure, but a DAMN fine one !

Shared at DLD 2012: Pitch black with a small head, oily and lot of tears. Nose has notes of chocolate, anise, roast, tar, tobacco, chili pepper, herbal hops, smoked meats and some vanilla bean bourbon vapours. The taste starts big and brash malts with lots of earthy notes before pepper kicks in and add depth and a bite. A sipper for sure, sticky and oily with only a slight oxidization. Overall I like this quite a bit... maybe I will get more one day.

Bomber to taster from notes (shared by someone as soon as he bought it at Dark Lord Day, 2011). Looks good; a viscous black with thin tan lacing. Smells of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, bourbon, and peppers. Tastes like it smells with a nice, rich moutheel and some heat from the peppers. Excellent stuff!

Barrel-Aged Dark Lord tasting! Thanks to all the guys in the tasting group who helped make this happen. Bottle 46/165 The beer appears dark brown, nearing black, with minimal head. The aroma brings some roast, peppery spices, vanilla, oak, chocolate. Great flavor! Peppers are well integrated - bold but but not overpowering. A fabulous beer. Sweet but not too. Low carbonation and silky smooth on the palate. Another terrific variant of a world class stout. Highly recommended. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 01-15-2012

Bottle shared with the group. Pours black with a small beige head. The aroma opens sweet malty, vanilla, berries, some powdered pepper, chocolate and wood. The flavor has very little in the way of spicy peppers because we waited a bit long on this. Sweet malts, caramel, chocolate, berries, vanilla and a light splash of smoke. This was tasty, but I wish I drank this fresh to take advantage of the peppers.
