    So...when will DLD be and will they allow
    IL residents?

    Funny story: I drank another Blurple Gatti (or so I thought) last night, and it tasted totally different from a month ago. No longer sweet, none of the adjuncts were even noticeable, and it tasted a little hoppy even. Good, but not remotely the same beer. I was all set to go on BA in the morning and tell everyone that something is happening to the beer, and then I looked in the trash and saw an empty bottle of BA Behemoth. I grabbed it out of the fridge in the dark last night and didn't notice. Doh!

    This actually explains 97.5% of the review discrepancies on this site.

    I'm going to use the term "bottle variation" in quotes from now on, accompanied by one of these emojis: :rolling_eyes:

    My Rod My Comfort got popped this weekend and I actually liked it. I normally hate peated Scotch (wow, who's never heard that one before?), but it's mild and provides an accent that actually complements and subdues some of the DL sweetness. I've never hated the DL sweetness, but the Scotch improved the experience for me, as opposed to expectations, and relative to some of the wine barrel aged variants. If any hint of peat would make you sick, I still wouldn't recommend it. I've never heard confirmation it was an actual peated Scotch barrel this time around (looking at you Dia Oscuro and Turtledogg), but it's definitely got that earthy, smoky hint to it regardless.

    Speaking of, is DLD just up and cancelled this year? Even and including a drive-thru only bottle release? I guess since I remember listening to the election results on the way back home last year, if it happens at all we might be a ways off from any announcements.

    The www.darklordday.com site was down for a few weeks, but now it appears to be back up, no updates though.

    I think they usually do 3 year cycles on the regular DL bottles, and I doubt they would upgrade to a fully-printed bottle to have that be the last year. And I’m sure a lot of the DL they brewed last year made it into barrels, pandemic be damned.
