Big thanks to immobilisme for bringing this over to our recent tasting. Bottle #606/934.
A- Pours a standard DL pitch black color with a one finger dark mocha head that leaves minimal lacing behind.
S- Rich fudge, bourbon, vanilla syrup, with hints of wood, burnt caramel, raisins and plumb. Judging from the aroma, I'm assuming this is going to be fairly sweet.
T- Rich, sweet and decadent with Chocolate malt balls, uncooked brownie batter, vanilla, cream, smooth bourbon, caramel and raisins. Bordering on being too sweet, but the bourbon helps keep the sweetness in check.
M- Thick syrupy body with a low to medium carbonation. The abv. is nowhere to be seen.
O- A liquid form of dessert. Tons of chocolate and vanilla mingled with bourbon makes this a very flavorful beer. While very sweet, this was not as sugary as the regular DL. A bit too sweet to have more than a few ounces, but still one of my favorites of this year's BA treatments.
Thanks again, Todd!

This was a 2012. Got it from a friend and held onto it for a while.
Is it worth the hype??? Well, this beer is awesome! Super heavy booze note when opening. Drank it at 65 degrees. But it fell completely off almost instantly. It hits really hard and then...Gone!
To be perfectly honest! Find a Blendiculous#1 and trade your Dark Lord for it!
Even an Event Horizon from the same date would be better serve. I really wanted this beer to be perfect. Not every beer is perfect!
