    Of course, but the BA brownies will be super limited, you'll probably have to line up early for them.

    Here's what I use, except I use a full cup of chocolate chips instead of the milk/white chocolate chunks, and I use 2 eggs instead of 4 to keep it from having a cake-like consistency:

    If so what would be number one? Coffee and Double Barrel would have to be up there. FVM has been around.

    Good question. Hopefully neither is wine.

    Please don't ever tell someone to leave BAVSS at home! :wink:

    Keep your hands to yourself!

    As for what to bring, I just found out I'll be in Fort Lauderdale area the week before DLD, so hoping to grab something fresh from Civil Society to bring along or anything else I might be lucky enough to score down there. Also have Rum BA Ten Fidy, Supplication, Rum GBS, Mikerphone Dynamite with a Laserbeam, a PW BA beer, and DB Big Bad Baptist on my mind for bringing, along with perhaps Benthic. I wouldn't be surprised if only one or two of those end up being in my bag, as I'll change my mind many times between now and then!

    I sure hope double is one of them, and I hope he's 100 % correct on the other variants lol.

    Being in Group C, and assuming those are correct, I really hope I don't get stuck with Cherry or Vintages as my options...

    I'd love to see the reactions if the double barrel was hanjee finished in a malort barrel.

    Besides the fact that FVM is fantastic, vanilla always wins. That and Handjee (assuming we still get it), would probably be 1 and 2, though they might last a little longer with strong alternatives. Demand for Double Barrel would vary depending on the barrels since they did one last year in two bullshit barrels. Bourbon/brandy would be pretty high demand though.

    My wife and I are staying at the Hampton Inn just down the road from 3 Floyds again this year where last year's bottle share was phenomenal. I am going to bring along some subset of this inventory (see link below). CBC Bodhi and Creeper will definitely be part of this subset. For those not familiar, Four String and Wolf's Ridge are two very good craft brewers in Columbus. Four String do a wide variety of styles. Wolf's Ridge's forte is stouts.

    Regarding variant availability, I am in group E so I am resigning myself to choosing amongst vintage Dark Lords which is OK with me.

    I agree, justified or not on Handjee and FVM being the top 2 desired (palate depentant, I guess). That Cognac BA Coffee DL was pretty phenomenal back in '15, and I would have put it right along VBDL '15. But, alas, it doesnt have vanilla or maple as one of the ingredients so it will never be sought out as highly. Lucky treat for those who will have to 'settle' for that one.

    Just a friendly reminder that every Dark Lord is vanilla and coffee.

    I don't mind the music its just like why do they have to sing like cookie monster???

    No one really likes metal, why do the bands have to play?

    I like going to concerts but I don't need to see Corpse Destroyer or Angel Fuck or whatever these bands are called.

    My pleasure. It has performed admirably for the last year - one big complaint I see about a lot of the other cooler bags I have been listed is that the straps aren't very strong, but I've had no issues with this one through many shares since last year's DLD.

    You don't hear too many complaints about it because the problem with that bag is that the straps are so durable, when DLD beer thieves try a snatch and grab on that backpack they wind up taking the person attached with them as well.

    Don't they have the hit song Mephistopheles or maybe it was Meth Don't Stop Police or Memphis Topple Please. I can never understand what those bands are saying.

    Lol. The bands are easily half the reason for Dark Lord Day for both me and my +1, Goatwhore are incredible live. Too bad you can't enjoy it, I'm pumped!
