750ml bottle poured into FFF Teku, consumed during our chili beer tasting a couple months ago. Split 5 ways, reviewed from notes, consumed right after '12 Cognac de Muerte during our chili beer tasting. Thanks Corbet for the bottle.

Bottle #128.

A- Pours pitch black, like the Cognac de Muerte almost no head to speak of, still top and pretty much no lacing except some oily alcohol legs.

S- Dark chocolate, chilies, balanced bourbon, vanilla, a light booziness. Much more balanced and refined then the Cognac de Muerte.

T- Sweet bourbon, dark chocolate, black licorice, vanilla, oak, finishes with balanced chili heat, dark chocolate, and dark fruits. Again much more balanced then Cognac de Muerte with a nice sweetness from the bourbon and the chilies being well integrated.

M- Some light burning alcohol heat but very smooth for 15%, low carbonation fitting for the abv.

O- The '13 de Muerte was definitely a big improvement over the previous vintages. Three Floyds definitely improved upon the beer integrating the chilies very nicely while still letting the characteristics of Dark Lord shine. While I still might prefer some of the other BA Dark Lord variants, this beer was definitely a pleasure to have and I'm glad I sought it out despite the low bottle count.

750 ml orange waxed bottle poured in a FFF mini snifter. 2013 vintage.

A: Pours a viscous, oily black color with a dark tan head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin ring. Some small splotches of lace are left down the glass.

S: Light bourbon with oak. Roasted malts, a little soy with some chocolate and pepper flesh. Minimal heat with some caramel sweetness.

T: Notes of chocolate and bourbon up front with a nice vanilla and oak barrel sweetness cutting through the middle. The chili pepper flesh comes through on the finish with a slight heat to cut down on some of the sweetness imparted by the barrel and the base beer.

M: Thick and oily. Heavy bodied with a medium low carbonation. Sweet with some heat on the finish.

O: Very good and the best De Muerte varation. The chili pepper had a nice flesh and heat to it with out being grassy or vegetal. One of the better beers of the voltron.
