On-tap at DLD. Thanks to whoever pointed this out to me. Served in a plastic cup.

A - It looks like Dark Lord. Thin dark mocha foam settles to an even thinner collar, leaving nothing else behind. Black body.

S - To be honest, without virtue of an A/B comparison I might have guessed this was 100% Dark Lord. Dark fruits, burnt brown sugar, chocolate-covered cherries, light anise and roast, and only peripheral oak and bourbon flavors. Very sweet, but thankfully not overly boozy.

T - The taste is quite similar, with a hefty emphasis on chocolate malts, dark fruits, various sugars, light vanilla, and only a mild barrel character that shows up in the back end. Essentially Dark Lord with a Murda'd Out Stout twist in the finish.

M - Sticky, full body, with very low carbonation. Barrel shows up a bit more here lending a dryness in the finish that I don't normally get from Dark Lord. Surprisingly well-hidden alcohol actually.

D - This was alright, but it very much seemed like 3 Floyds had some leftovers from the Murda'd Out Stout blending and decided to mix it with Dark Lord for fun. I liked this more than straight-up Dark Lord, but in my opinion it didn't stack up with the 100% barrel-aged beers they were also serving. Neat to try, but wouldn't rush out to get it again.

Cat Moves is a blend of 2013 Dark Lord with Barrel aged Robert the Bruce, Topless Witch, and Moloko. The interesting thing is that I find Dark Lord to be the hardest beer to detect in the blend.

On tap at a fundraiser, the beer was a deep black color with a mocha head served in a plastic cup. The plastic cup was beyond the realm of my control. The beer had a nice bourbon aroma that is certainly an attention getter. In the initial taste, one gets dark sweet chocolate, tart cherries, and notes of bourbon. The bourbon and wheat of Robert the Bruce are easily noticeable. The burnt malts and sweetness make for a nice milky sweetness. This is a very heavy stout, that would be tough to invest a lot of time drinking. The thickness allows it to linger like bourbony motor oil. A strangely named, great blend.
