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.

This is hot, but full of marshmallow, vanilla, bourbon, and big dark malts; solid mouthfeel. But I want so much more from the body and flavors; such a hot, yet creamy finish. The nose is the best. Great to try.

2017 bottle, kept at ~45F since release.

Bourbon and sticky caramel on the nose.
Taste is bourbon, sugar, vanilla, and chocolate with a fantastic lingering sweetness that coats your mouth. Just insanely good!
