Looks like the regualar Dark Lord which is black, inky and thick Poured with virtually no head except for some tan spots of foam.
Smells of black fruit, thick dark chocolates with some residual sugar shining through. Vanilla comes through but is still a little laid back compared to the thick chocolatey, coffee aromas. Caramel, black licorice and earth.
Huge thick and creamy. Just an absolute monster of a beer. The vanilla bean aging seems to have smoothed out things more than added vanilla flavor. Now there is a good vanilla bean flavor in the middle and onto the finish but it is still just a huge visceral dark chocolate, sweet malty, coffee induced monster of a RIS. Black fruits, and some hints of hop on the finish. Creamy rich and full of alcohol, mollasses, and hints of honey suckle.
Serving type: on-tap

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!
