2015 - Barrel only takes a slight edge off the sweetness of Dark Lord. Tons for normal DL flavors with raisins, prunes, coffee, sugar, and a bit of pepper. Most of the pepper comes through in a slight burn hanging in the back of the mouth/throat. Not terribly remarkable.

2017 vintage

Black color tan head. Spicy peppers, fudge and chocolate, bourbon, oak, vanilla. Dessert like. Thick. The peppers build as you drink it. Syrupy with molasses. A very fine beer.

2016 vintage

Peppers tasted a little different here and this one was a bit spicier than the 2017. Otherwise very similar. Both were excellent vintages.

Pours pitch black thick mocha-ish head. Aroma has chili, fudge, bitter chocolate, dried dark fruits.
Taste is same but with a huge dry chili finish

Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2017, yellow session. Starts with rum and continues sweet and sticky. Brown sugar, habanero peppers, medium heat, not too sweet or cloying.

2011 bottle version (yellow wax). Been cellaring this one for a bit. Mincemeat pie! Pepper and raisin on the nose. Low carbonation. Sweet, sticky tongue coat. If you still have this (like me), share with at least 3 friends.
