    Opened one over Memorial Day weekend and thought it had improved. But take into account that I didn't like it fresh - too much of that soy sauce thing going on (which seemed to have diminished).

    If it's a regular, and not BA drink now Dark Lord is at it's best fresh IMO. That said I still wish I had a few bottles for a vertical:(.

    This or eat it on top of white rice. '09 was never a good year and today it's pretty much soy sauce...

    We did a tasting from 2007 - 2013...2009 was the worst IMO, which was weird because 2010 and 2008 were my favorites.
