4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Originally reviewed 3/9/2013. On tap at Hunahpu Day. Served in a taster.
Jet black. No head. Small island of foam.
Smells ofvVanilla and bourbon. Bit surprise. Lots of sweet malts. Some traditional Dark Lord soy sauce.
Tastes of chocolate, vanilla, bourbon. No real barrel character beyond the bourbon flavor. Lots of bourbon and vanilla though. Lots of fudgy chocolate. Big soy sauce flavor and booze hinder it.
Boozy but very tasty. Low in carbonation and huge in body.
Itís over the top, but the bourbon and vanilla mask what I donít like about Dark Lord. Itís delicious only because of adjuncts.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2015 Bottleshare thanks to homer for #899. Bottle 537 of 934. Pour is black, tan head. Aroma is super sugary, strong, mild bourbon, more sugar, vanilla in the sweetness, but not super present. Taste is much more mild than I expected. But after a few sips, I get the waing in the chest. It really does taste like a marshmallow.

Bottle. Nose is aggressively boozy with a moderate to firm marshmallow. Some heat in the nose. Pitch black pour. Small brown head. Some diabetes underneath the nose. Residual sugar dominates. Taste is velvet smooth elixir of the gods. A harmonious blend of alcohol and cake frosting. Warming in finish but is always smooth. Wowsers.

Keg at the 4th Copenhagen Beer Celebration, Session 4, 02/05/2015.
Black with a dirty tan swirl.
Nose is rich roast, chocolate, vanilla, toffee fudge, bourbon tunes.
Taste comprises rich dark fruit, vanilla essence, sweet licks, muscavado sugar, chocolate souffle, sherry notes, bourbon barrel.
Medium + body, oily complection, sweet close.
Decent enough impy but as with other DLís to sweet for me, needs some more bitterness/charring to balance out.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2015 Bottle shared by Mike, pours sticky brown black color with small head. Notes of caramel, vanilla, chocolate, syrup, and molasses. Pretty sticky and sweet. Aroma is awesome but maybe a touch too rich with Bourbon. Residual sugars left behind in mouth.

Bottle at bills courtesy of Mike. Pours a deep brown body with bright tan lacing. Mouthfeel is aggressive and sweet with notes of melted fudge brownie, tons of sugar and marshmallow. Vanilla syrup and candy. Not a ton of bourbon actually. Too sweet, but still a delightful punch to the face.
