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.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. 2013 bottle. #110/417.
Appearance - Black. Back to no head.
Smell - Peppers are quite strong. Chocolate. The peppers are very green.
Taste - Chocolate. Very sweet, but the peppers build. Green peppers. I get a little bit of bourbon and vanilla, but peppers is strongest.
Mouthfeel - Thick and sweet, like the others, but the pepper really cuts the sugar.
Overall - This tastes better than the others. It smells like all peppers, but it's actually pretty enjoyable.

*2013 Edition 417 bottle release
A: Pours a dark brown almost black color. No head on this one even when poured aggressively or agitated in glass. Less oily lacing than base beer or other variants.
S: Chili dominant nose with notes of spicy vanilla, bourbon, and brown sugar.
T: At first you taste peppers with no heat. Just an earthy vegetable flavor. Next up is dark fruit note flavors from the base beer. Consisting of raisins, figs, and black cherries. The sweetness we all know in Dark Lord kicks in. It's a different kind of sweet. Flavors are of cinnamon gingerbread cookies. Barrel flavor and spice kicks in. Spicy flavors taste like complex mole made from scratch with Mexican chocolate, piloncillo, and sun dried guajillo peppers, with a touch of tamarind. Finishes with a slick spicy kick of bourbon and mild chili.
M: Is slick and medium bodied. Soft carbonation despite being and looking flat.
O: Not as much bourbon or chili heat as one would think. Pretty smooth and drinkable overall for what it is. Less sweet and spicy than Cognac de Muerte. The Cognac had more of a powdered chili sort of flavor than an earthy one. Way better than the 2011 Bourbon de Muerte that got weird as it warmed up. Best of the Muerte series so far. Enjoyed it better than Bourbon or Whiskey Hunah.
