Draught. Black with brown head. Lots of wood and vanilla in aroma along with dark ripe fruits and bourbon. Sweet flavour of cocoa, plum, raisins and a warm alcohol note, which highlights the wooden notes. Excellent! Ktwse (5019) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2013
BOOM SHACKALACK! Pours black with minimal tan head. Aroma is an explosion of vanilla, chocolate and bourbon barrel. Taste is sweet as fuck with heaps of vanilla and milk chocolate. Body is amazing! Creamy, full, chocolate-y. Wow, just wow. And still... I rate the norml one slightly higher.

Sampled at DLD 2013. Not sure if it was on tap or from a bottle, but my notes indicate that it was the 2012 version. Huge thanks to whoever shared this. My notes also indicate that I loved it. Mostly clear dark brown color. Minimal khaki head. Some s’mores, vanilla, cookie dough. Hints of wood and spice. Good chewy texture, lighter carbonation, more dry. Bigger body. Good big sweet taste, light bitter sweet. Brown sugar. Vanilla. Brownies. Marshmallows. Incredible stuff. Tiny sips yield a huge delicious aftertaste and aroma. Incredible. crossovert (13078) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 28, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2017 This is for the bottled one from last yer i believe. Acetone nose, flavor is creamy vanilla and sherry, cocoa, coffee, sugar. rxeight (3108) - Illinois, USA - APR 28, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2017 09 vanilla darklord. On tap at darklord day 2013. Black as night no head thick as used motor oil. The vanilla and barrel were extremely subtile. Perfect amount of sweetness. But there was something else about this, so much fuller and more amazing than the regular, could just be the age.

14 on draft at DLD 14. I was in the right place at the right time. Got my 2 rather small pours, tastiest $10 you can spend on beer. The vanilla doesn’t stand out in this amazing mix of sweet syrupy smooth bourbon amazement.
5.1.15 12-14 at my dick lord tasting. 12 - liquid marshmellow. Everything else is completely blended perfectly. This was amazing. My favorite of the bunch. And possibly my top beer ever. 13 and 14 were very similar lots of vanilla. I’m talking BCS vanilla amounts of vanilla. 13 was sweeter, probably because of the sweeter base beer. Overall, all 3 amazing. But the 12 really shined.
5.19.15 2015 bottle fresh. Crazy vanilla heavy. Sweet syrupy. Very good. But needs to sit for about 2 years.
12.31.16. Happy new year to me. 2015 bottle. Very sweet, cane sugar, molasses, Unami sweetness. Barrel and vanilla are there bit light. This bottle is has the most dark lord come through of all that I’ve had.
Imagine banana fosters with caramel and chocolate ice cream on top. Then you might come close to understanding what this beer is.
