An absolutely excellent beer. If anyone tells you otherwise, they are not your friend. Ignore them as if they were dead to you! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

There is no reason to add more to what has already been said. I saw this a few years ago at a bottle store. There looked to be a couple of cases.I was in a hurry so left deciding to return later. I did, about 3 hours later and there were 2 bottles left. of which I naturally bought, I’ll probably not have it again. Im too old for the crowds in Munster for Dark Lords Day but what a fantastic beer, That;s all that need be said

Ancient rating from Hunahpu’s Day 2012, I recently found my tasting notes. Figured why waste good ticks…pretty outstanding as I remember. The bourbon helps cut the powerful sweetness and adds a slight vanilla, creaminess. Amazing, of course.

Russian style Imperial Stout ... WAAAAHHUUUUU. Den er vild. Ligner tjære, når den siver langsomt ud af flasken. Olie sort og fed nærmest uden skum og stort set ingen kulsyre. Næse af lakrids, kaffe og kirsebær. Smagen er en eksplosion af krydderi, anis, kaffe, jord og overmodne skovfrugt. Sødlig, men med tilpas bitterhed til balancen. Brygget 2007 og holder præcis 15 %. VILD (og lidt sær) øl. KONGE ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle kindly shared by Steve. Pours opaque black with a small beige head. Nose is booze, strong soy, roast, bourbon. Wasn’t impressed with the aroma but the flavor improved as it warmed up - sweet, malt, alcohol, dark fruits, bourbon, with a definite dark lord taste on the back end. Better than expected considering we were worried it’d be infected.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2015 On tap at DLD 14. Marked as 2011 Heaven Hill Dark Lord. Black, no head but a thick lacing. Definitely dark lord base. Bourbon was subtle but probably killed the sweetness. Thick, smooth, and amazing.

6.1.14 Bottle, acquired at 12 DLD. It’s bourbon. It’s dark lord. It’s exactly as advertised and every bit as magical as you might expect.

5.19.15 2015 bottle lots of sweetness but it takes away the harsh overly sugary molasses of the regular dark lord. Touch of Cherry. Not much barrel character in there. Liked the 12 with 2 years age on it better. Seems to be about when these peak.

If you haven't had this beer. Get to Munster Indiana in late April and get some. Make sure you have a golden ticket.
