4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled at DLD2013. Probably the highlight of the day, as far as I’m concerned. And that’s saying a lot because I had a westy to kick off the festivities. The ground was wet and I was walking on this weird cut up sticks they put all over the ground. I kept stumbling and almost lost a toe nail. Pours a rich black with a small brown head. Aroma is big, sweet, boozy. Tons of barrel and chocolate and mild bourbon. Sweet and messy and interesting and kind of lovely. Full bodied, lush, interesting. Pretty cool beer.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at DLD, shared by TheAlum- thanks again, Adam! I thought he was calling this "Camp Moves" - either way, the name makes no damn sense. Pours a gorgeous deep brown with a lasting milk chocolate brown head. Lots of sweet, gooey notes - fudge, vanilla, caramel, molasses, brown sugar, chocolate syrup - and bourbon warmth surrounding all of it. Full-bodied, with a syrupy mouthfeel and low-moderate carbonation. Massive, smooth, and delicious.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft on tap at Dark Lord Day 2013 (Munster, IN). Pours a rich deep blackish hue, opaque blackish body with brownish glowing edges. Frothy tannish head atop dies to a film, laces small. Aromas are fudgy, chocolate chip cookies, vanilla and mellow roast. A bit sweeter, cocoa and some coffee roast. Coconut toasty shavings Touches of fudge, barrel and wet oak. Vanilla, toffee, and gentle more oak, kiss of Cognac and dark fruit. Initial is medium bodied, stikciness, with vanilla, touch of tannic barrel grows, cognac and gentle wine, richer vanilla and tannic elements. Roasty, sticky with coconut and richer barrel into the middle and backend, some vanilla bean. Really crazy rich and an experience that develops. Vanilla, coconut, and good flavors as we round the corner, caramel and carmelized malts, some toffee, dark fruit and roasty coffee. Fudge and cocoa, roasty and more java/chocolatey fudge. Finish is a bit dry, tannic, and vanilla, coconut, and some roasty and sticky malts linger on the palate. Well damn done blend. Gentle vanilla, coconut, oak, and some red wine or dried dark fruity feel, really offer some life.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black pour with no head. Big time bourbon aroma along with oak. Thin mouth with a massive taste. Sugar, raisin, vanilla, bourbon...you name it! Really wild beer and man was it good. Here is to hoping this shows up elsewhere than DLD13.

Draft at DLD. Deep dark brown, Brown ring of foam. Sweet, dark fruit, sugar. Syrupy. Medium to full body. Dauntingly complex. A savory beer. Absolutely worth a taste if they saved any to offer again.
