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.
Serving type: on-tap
