2015 version consumed on 7/2/16. This is still quite sweet but not cloyingly so. Bourbon heat has died down a little. rich, full mouthfeel and this looks like old motor oil. A vast improvement on the regular dark lord.

Pours like viscous motor oil with little to no head; barrel pops on the nose with some slight leather and licorice; taste is dark chocolate, raisin, and bourbon without being too sweet or hot; mouthfeel coats the tongue and glass; a rich boozy chocolatey treat
