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.

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!

Bottle from tom10101 thanks man! Aroma is oak, sticky sweetness, and some spice. Taste is sour up front, followed by spice, a bit of sticky sweetness, harsh biter aftertaste. Well glad I got to try this..but hard to love this beer considering the cost.

Ferris (4342) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle - Vintage 2013 - Molasses, chilli peppers and dark roast coffee. Jet black with almost no head. Sweet barrel notes, sticky sweet and a nice flavourful chilli that adds heat on the throat. Too big and bold, no balance just a ton of flavor.

5/26 - My goodness this was a fine fine beer. Fine enough for me to post a rating for the first time in years on RateBeer! Of course it’s black and oily with essentially no head. It’s hard to say if there was any carbonation - I think there was some, but the perhaps that was an alcoholic sparkle! There was no alcoholic burn or unpleasant presence, much to my later chagrin. The aroma was beeaaautiful! Chocolate and baked cherry, bourbon, and prune and coffee and peppers all in one! The taste was similar, layers of malt, chocolate, coffee, bourbon sweetness, fruits, and gorgeously balanced with the spiciness of the chili, which was warming and flavorful but not domineering at all. Very round thick mouthfeel. I was surprised that I decided to open it for as lowly an event as my birthday, but I did, and it was wonderful. And I got sick with glory.
