Yes, but soy sauce.
2017 Dark Lord was definitely an improved version from previous years. I'm hoping the variants will also be much improved due to the better base.
Yes, 17 has been the most drinkable in years, I'll give you that. I hope they at least keep that recipe or continue tweaking it for the better.
We should boycott (girlcott? Nongendercott?) TimeOut. From their recent newsletter:
‘Dark Lord Day tickets go on sale soon
See when you can lock down your trip to this beer-geek holiday.’
Beer-geek? Really? Insulting.
Forget it, there's no way I'm hitting F5 in that weather.
For those waiting in line at Toppling Goliath:
Decorah, IA - Saturday, March 31st
Cell Reception: Non-existent
I've been drinking some older Dark Lord's gifted to me be a friends wife who got real tired of looking at them in her closet. The vintages are '11 to '15.
I noticed the earlier vintages brewed with Intelligentsia coffee are way more enjoyable than the newer ones with Dark Matter coffee.
Just one man's opinion...
I know you jest, but I Fucking love those totes.
Mikerphone event is 21 and over
IMMENSELY better than the cardboard 4-packs.
So yes, I like them.
Ah, I assumed school of rock was kids. Kids and jack black.
Edit: OMG is jack black going to be there dressed as jack white with a white stripes cover band called black stripes...?!?!?
Ah yea I get where you are coming from with that..
I prefer the $75 lanyards at 18th Street
No, but Jack White will be dressed up as Dan Auerbach and play with the White Keys.
Oh, that sounds dangerous for their feud.
Let's get this thread going a bit...
Number of variants and which variants will return? I'll set the over/under at 7 variants.
I'll take the over. I think it'll be a big year for variants. I'm thinking 9.
I'm hopeful for an Apple Brandy DL or FVM in Bourbon/Whiskey barrels
I'm guessing 8 total.
Extremely likely- Handjee, Bourbon and Muerte
Probable- 2 bullshit in wine barrels variants (not sure who owns the trademark on that phrase)
Returning- 2 of FVM, Chemtrailmix and Coffee Cognac, possibly with one of the first 2 falling in the previous category
New- I'm going to keep guessing coconut until they do it. Hopefully in bourbon, cognac/brandy or rum.
If I need another to make 8, you know I'm guessing something weird with cardamom.
Please no. No cardamom. No.
I can’t wait to walk up into walMart with my DLD tote, and just wait in the cold beer aisle to stunt all over people buying bud light.
Chicago Style Variant.
Dark Lord aged with pickle relish, mustard, sport peppers, & celary salt aged in freshly dumped Malort barrels.
And you know some bastard will complain that there is no ketchup in it!
Don't forget the onions.
Do that at Gene & Jude's and you're likely to get dropped.
I'm predicting 1st batch of DL aged in Distilled DL barrels. We know this is going to happen sometime....maybe that explains the shortage of DL last year? Or maybe they distilled the infected stuff...I'm also predicting KBBS level resale prices for it.
For the love of everthing unholy please Coffee coconut rum aged dark lord!
I'll take a triple chicory coffee variant...doesn't even have to be BA. Would love to taste a DL with a hefty counterpunch of bitterness.
...and a French press idea has been born.
I'm not really a coffee drinker, but I definitely think it helps counter the natural DL sweetness. That said, it is kind of weird considering the base has coffee in it.
Maple barrel to really bring out the sweetness. Maybe cut with maple barrel aged muscat.
Under! Maybe they will finally just make a few variants that people actually want?? Who am I kidding, there will probably be 24 variants and vintage bottles...
What about aged in Mallort barrels?
Barrel Aged Plague Cuvee- a blend of the infected BA DLs from various years....
That name alone is perfect
I'm just catching up here, but you guys know, for sure, that the rest of those early accidental tickets are going to be caught up with, refunded and invalid. It's just a matter of time.
I'm guessing 7 or 8 variants:
For sure: Handjee, BADL, Ronaldo, Muerte
hopeful: Fixed FVM back in bourbon barrels, coffe cognac
You know its coming: some sort of wine barrel treatment nobody wants
wishful but probably a couple years away: DL aged in dark lord whiskey barrels. I think the whiskey will need to age 4-6 yrs before they dump the barrel so I just dont think this could possibly be ready
Would be pretty cool if the early tickets either did not come with any bottles or the invalidate them after the others sell out on the 31st...
We said friends and family, but the Dark Lord has no friends and it hates its family! Bwahhahahhahahahahahahahahahahahaha
FFF: “We dont give a shit.”
You: “Just wait. Any day now.”
Good luck with that.
Few things on this board are funnier than how mad and red you got over these presale tickets.
What would be really nice is if, instead of 4 bottles of Dark Lord, they did 3 bottles plus 1 BADL that was guaranteed for everyone. That way, no one is too bummed when they miss out on a variant and get stuck with 5 bottles of regular DL. Maybe with the expansion, this is something that could feasibly be done in the near future.
