Sampled from the tap at GTMW 2016. Pours an oily black with a dark brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has strong sweet dark grains, roasted malts, chocolate and a touch of dark wine backing. Flavor has lots of sweet dark grains, chocolate and roasted malts with just touch of wine barrel.

Taste is very sweet, light roasted, boozy and salty. Full bodied, oily creamy texture, soft carbonation.

From notes. Enjoyed this during the 2nd Annual Kellys Island Bottle Share on September 18. 750 mL bottle. 2016 vintage as Dwarven Power BottomThe pour is just as black and oily thick as youd 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 isnt any soy. The light oak is a nice touch. The flavor is terrible. The Muscat barrels are just dominant and dont let anything else happen. This is like a fucking tire fire. Burning rubber and a light charred oak. I cant 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.
