From notes. Enjoyed this during the 2nd Annual Kelly’s Island Bottle Share on September 18. 750 mL bottle. 2016 vintage as Dwarven Power BottomThe pour is just as black and oily thick as you’d want, just like the other Dark Lord variants so far. There is a thin ring of light brown head and no lace. The aroma is really sweet. There is a nice maltiness and a good barrel character here. I like how there isn’t any soy. The light oak is a nice touch. The flavor is terrible. The Muscat barrels are just dominant and don’t let anything else happen. This is like a fucking tire fire. Burning rubber and a light charred oak. I can’t stand it. The mouth feel is awesome. The viscosity is heavy and the carbonation is soft and subtle. The aftertaste is lingeringly sweet and oaky with a hint of that tire fire lingering around. Ugh, this had such high hopes.

Pitch black with a tan head, viscous. Aromas of roasted malts, dark bitter chocolate, burnt toast, coffee, dried grapes, some raisins, dried prunes. Faintly carbonated, smooth and oily with a huge body. Sweet dried fruity malty chocolatey - heavy and lasting finish.
