Thanks to Mike for this one. 750ml waxed bottle into a 3 Floyds teku. Had at a tasting 5/18/13. Reviewed from notes.

Pours pitch black and thick. Spotty lace with good stick. Thick, oily legs with good stick. Certainly fits the Dark Lord name.

Nose is smoke, liquorice, roasted malt, logan fruit, chocolate, fudge, mild soy sauce, and booze. Very sweet.

Opens chocolate, sweet purple fruit, molasses, honey, fudge, and light roasted malt. Like Diabeeeetus in a bottle. Sweet as hell. More sweet soy sauce at the end. Finishes honey and molasses. So over-the-top sweet that its hard to drink more than 2-3 ounces.

Full bodied with low carbonation. Thick and oily in the mouth and mellow and smooth going down. Finishes sweet with a sticky, lingering aftertaste. Just what I need to carry out the flavors in this beer.

The look and feel of this beer are there but this is easily the sweetest of all the BA Dark Lord variants I've ever had. Like they aged this one and then decided to pour a barrel of honey and molasses in it after all was said and done. I'm glad I got to try this but its not worth revisiting.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle number is smudged.

Appearance - Thick and viscous. No head. Lifeless.

Smell - Fruity. Sweet. Caramel. Some chocolate. Not a distinct wine aroma.

Taste - Much more wine. Tingly acids. Sweet. Chocolate. A little soy sauce.

Mouthfeel - Thick. Extremely sweet. Medium low carbonation.

Overall - Interesting but too sweet.

A-Black in the glass, some dark head that doesn't last that long.

S-Rather fruity, oak and wine notes. Together with the roasted malt and the chocolate. But the wine and fruit are the main part.

T-Very similar to the nose, started off with grapes, wine, oak and fruit. The finish was much more like a regular stout.

M-Medium to heavy in body, not much carbonation.

O- A HUGE thanks to the super generous person that shared in line. I don't know who you are, but you are a huge bro.
