My own personal white whale. Never thought I would have the "ammo" to land it, but finally everything fell into place and it was in my hands. I went old school, getting a bottle of Bourbon Barrel Aged Vanilla Bean Darklord from 2012. Bottle #755/934. Poured black with a smidge/ring of tan bubbles around the edges. Vanilla fills the nostrils. Now I've heard people talk that this beer tastes like marshmallow. I've also had other beers people describe as marshmallow, but to me the flavor was not there. Here is a beer that is truly a liquid marshmallow flavor experience. Not only is that the flavor, but it coats the mouth and "stays for days". Supposedly, this is also a 15% beverage, but there isn't a trace of alcohol in this beer. Was it worth it? As I am a lover of the sweet brews, it sure was.

Sampled at DLD '09.

One of the best beers I've ever had.

Pours completely jet black, thick as hell. A bit of a head stays for a little bit. Decent lacing in the snifter. Tons on vanilla in the nose but it's not too much and doesn't get in the way. How they did this, I don't know. Great roasted and burnt malts with a very smooth rich coffee aroma. Sweet but not overwhelming. Taste is outstanding. The vanilla plays so well with everything. Lots of coffee and caramel with nice barrel aging and a very complex alcohol tone. Alcohol is surprisingly well hidden, more of a friendly taste without any sting. Body is as full as it gets yet not cloying. Carbonation was just strong enough to make everything very smooth and velvety. It drinks every well for as big as it is but it's not something to be taken lightly, lol :D
