22oz bottle served with the other versions and 2004-2011.
A: Black, very light carbonation.
S: Mexican chocolate. Light spice and quite sweet.
T: An odd spicy flavor that is hard to pinpoint. It integrates well with the Dark Lord sweetness. I really enjoy this.
M: Just like the others - very thick mouthfeel with light carbonation.
O: Very interesting. The spice adds to the Dark Lord flavor very well. While not as good as the PVW or BrV, this was quite good.

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.
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.
