    Has Three Floyds ever made a double barrel dark lord variant that did not use wine barrels?

    I feel like drinking maple syrup Dark Lord might be worse for your health than meth. Like, the only way you could handle that much sweetness is if you drink it while biting into a lemon.

    It would have to come with a health warning label and a free diabeetus screening.

    Cardamom should NEVER be added to beer. Period.

    They don't put it in the beer they put it in the maple syrup that they put in the beer.

    Don't worry, this has been noted. Instead they will be selling spices in the merch shop. $30 gets you an ounce of dried cardamom seeds aged in Dark Lord barrels.

    In that case it's ok. Carry on.

    That stuff will pull $50 on the secondary market easily.

    Fun fact I just learned from Wikipedia: cardamom is the 3rd most expensive spice by weight behind vanilla and saffron.

    Why do you think I always go for the Cardamom variants? I boil those puppies down and sell the leftover cardamom for $2,000.

    They're marketing it as "an explosion of cardamom in your face"

    Early speculation is that they're doing this because they fear the bottles will explode like the hot sauce does, so if they put it on the label they're protected.

    So will we be seeing a saffron Dark Lord?

    Unfortunately it is Saffron, ambergris and cardamom aged in a box of dessert wine....

    I think Quit Hitting Yourself is the only variant that was every double barreled (both wine barrels).

    Had Quit Hitting Yourself been better marketed as a DB variant, it would have gone in group A.

    You're probably right. The hype alone of having the first ever double barrel aged Dark Lord variant...

    Yeah, I used it last year and will use again this year. It holds 6 bombers easy with room for waters and a couple 12oz bottles.

    I am a little disappointed that we have made it two pages without serious whining about the last minute variant shortage announcement.

    On that note, a few days later they released 1500 bottles of BA Behemoth. Would anybody have preferred that to a couple bottles of last years DL?

    Despite how insanely unbelievably intense (-ly off-putting, for some) Temeculan was, only a few people in the world will have ever really tasted it.

    I'd like to try a BA Behemoth one time (sober...had it a few times at shares/DLD, but...yeah, don't remember), but that could never replace drinking half a bottle of T3000!

    Can we speculate on if there will be a special release the night before? Has that been done yet?

    They released a sour called Bloobs before DLD last year. Always a possibility something else could pop up this year.

    Pretty sure a DL with Maple, Esspresso, Toffee, and Habanero (METH) would break the internet

    I have one in the cellar and am only a few hours away. Just knock on the door and ask whoever answers to open it. If I am not home, leave a few ounces in the bottle for when I get back.

    No. My advice is to bring a large trash bag. If you spend a couple hundred bucks on burritos at the food stand you should be able to acquire enough beans to fill up the trash bag making a faux bean bag chair.

    How far out from the festival last year was the band list / variant list officially announced?
