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.

Appearance- The beer was pitch black with little noted carbonation

Smell - The spice is noticeable, but is muted by the wall of Dark Lord.

Taste - At the front is thick syrupy chocolate. The next layer seems to be raisin juice. The spice is there, but mostly to leave a trail of burn in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel- In the Dark Lord way, this is very thick.

Overall- I expected to like this one more because of the spice. It is a weird combination of flavors.
