L: Dark, opaque, chestnut and black hues complemented by a thin tan head and ample lacing
S: Molasses, fudge, and chocolate syrup
T: Cinnamon, figs, vanilla, and dark chocolate covered raisins
F: Medium to heavy body with moderate carbonation
O: This was a decadent boozy and sweet treat. I really enjoyed this one - even though it was a 2012 bottle, the BA Dark Lord still retained a certain high ABV-forward profile, but was equally matched with its sweet and flavorful taste profile. This is a gorgeous variant of a heralded stout in the beer world and should be relished accordingly. Beautifully done.
