Wow I may have liked this more than the actual Dark Lord... Its definetly a diferent flavor, very heavy on the Bourbon and thinner. Great smell and kind of random that I even had a chance to taste it. Not a huge fan of normal Black Sun so I am surprised this was so good. HighWine (991) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Tap at the brewery. Black pour like spent motor oil with a brown head. Aroma of roast toasted oak, coffee beans, and bourbon vanilla extract. Taste is absolutely phenomenal. It’s sweet, roasty, smooth and delicious. I had to stop after every sip with shock at how good this beer tastes. Very coffee-like with a crime brûlée like sweetness and milk chocolate essence. The hops linger in the background but are present enough to keep this from being at all cloying. Velvety mouthfeel and a nice full finish. So good I had two, which almost never happens for me in one session at a place with lots of great beer. sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 5, 2008
DLD ’08: On tap in the pub: Pours black with a tan head. Aroma, fruity citrus hops, bourbon, chocolate and vanilla. Flavor, pine, citrus, some fruits, an earthy bitterness, bittersweet chocolate, bourbon notes. I thought it was a bit more full bodied than regular black sun. I loved it.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2015 One of the better ba(barrel aged) offerings from Three FloydsThe ba Dark lord is too much as well as the BA Behemoth but this as a good amount of bourbon flavor and retains some nice oak qualitysdoes?nt taste like a shot of bourbonI?m biased because I love Black sun to begin with.A real nice beer try it if you can get it hopscotch (11236) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 29, 2008
Draft... DLD ‘08... This beer rocks!... Tar black ale with a small, creamy, tan head. The aroma offers strong notes of espresso, chocolate and bourbon with a touch of vanilla. Oily and full-bodied with a silky-smooth mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. Burnt bitterness follows closely behind bourbony chocolate and vanilla sweetness. Whiskey-warm, chocolate and blackstrap finish. If ever there was a beer totally reconstructed by barrel aging, this is it!

Draft @ 3F. Pourd black in color with a thin light brown head. Aroma of roast, hops and bourbon. Mellowed from the original Black Sun with a hint of bourbon flavor. Great! FishBizkit (234) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 3, 2011
Aged in bourbon barrels with cherries. Dark black with big creamy brown head. Bourbon and vanilla aroma. Lots of cherry in the aroma and taste, not sour at all though. Almost brings out a coffee flavor. Nuttiness. Really enjoyable. RAYBOY01 (2010) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2007
This baby is way smooth! Big alcohol, big hops, big barrel, big bourbon, hints of chocolate and sour cherries...what else could you ask for? The mouthfeel is so very smooth and syrupy...you can’t help but sip it and go aaahhhh! This is head and shoulders better than the base Black Sun in my opinion.
