Yes, it’s own rating! Talk about delicious!! Thanks to a great FL friend for this! Black pour, brown head. Tons of vanilla, coconut, bourbon, cocoa, raisins. Flavor is rich and sweet. Boozy, thick. Rather awesome...so much better than the regular version!

Bottle shared by someone at DLD 2012 from backlog notes. This pours jet black with no real head to speak of; perhaps a few tan bubbles scattered about. It is so thick that it refuses to leave the sides of the glass. The aroma has the big sweet caramel malt, roast,dark fruits, etc from the base Darklord and adds bourbon, light oak, anise, and hints at the abv. The flavors are intense and include roasted malt, chocolate,coffee, caramel, dark fruits, vanilla,oak, bourbon, and anise. There is a dark chocolate like bitterness battling with the sweetness of the beer. This version is smoother and more refined than the regular bourbon Dark Lord. I don’t know why the barrel aged versions are far superioir in so many cases than the regular beer. Much like BCS Rare in that it improves on the original. Definetly full bodied, with the flavor lingering for quite some time.
