From bottle. Thanks Ken and Craig. Pours pure black. Strong bourbon aroma, vanilla, light spiciness, licorice and ovaltine. Delicious taste, a nice blend of vanilla, licorice and ovaltine. Massively sweet, but I like that. Very thick but quite clean. Thoroughly enjoyed.

Thanks Brad! Super dark black pour with a thin beige ring. Chocolate ganache and cocoa nib with hints of vanilla bourbon and massive raisin dark fruit. Delicious! Medium to full body with low carbonation and a sweet oily finish.

PVW 750mL yellow wax #482/484 thanks to ygtbsm94. Looks like this entry doesn’t specify draft only bourbon barrel Dark Lord. Pours clear cola, deeper, with a mediocre, beige head. No retention or lace. Rich, buttery bourbon nose. Taste is sweeter than the De Muerte. Not as spicy but with more noticeable alcohol. Still quite sweet. Palate is tangy and chalkier. Long finish with stickness and "tanginess". Not really creamy or rich. Not significantly different from the De Muerte. Quite sweet and boozy. 8/3/7/3/14=3.5 Want me to re-rate this from DLD draft only? Bite me.

Big massive sticky sweet impy, with some nice coconut and rye. Lots ofof milk chocolate and molasses. Palate is slick and oily, but the amount of unfermented sugar is borderline crunchy. Roasted/burnt coffee acidity on the finish.
