    The new labels look worlds better IMO. I always picture DL having a different label than the current one, but I mostly worry about whats inside the bottle. Props to 3F to coming up with new labels and keeping it fresh.
    Cheers!

    Dark Lord is fucking sick. It looks like a mashup with ASoIaF and the Elder Scrolls Skyrim. The axe in his hand looks like a lot like Wuuthrad. Also, put a warhammer in his hand, and he would look like Robert Baratheon during the Battle of the Trident.

    Excited to try a few new Pale Ale's from FFF! Zombie Dust and Alpha King are two of the best. Not sure how they will top those, but I'm happy to see them try. ;)

    Yeah the new DL label is leaps and bounds better than the old one. Some of those new labels have peaked my curiosity too. The pig destroyer one especially

    They still look like the shit I drew in 10th grade while slamming Mountain Dew and listening to Gwar.

    No beer is more metal than a pale ale.

    Dig the new label art, although Stack N Stabb is old (beer released November?) . The Toxic Revolution label has been around for about a month as well though I don't believe the beer is out yet. Looking forward to the other beers :)

    Well if these new labels don't put them back at the top of RateBeer's brewery list, I don't know what will.

    So Im assuming Lord Admiral Nelson get replaced with Lord Rear Admiral? Same type of beer and label and name are too similar for it to a be a different beer I would think. Anyone know the reason for the change?

    I'm surprised they changed the name to some hacky sex pun, doesn't seem very metal.

    My guess would be copyright issues with Admiral Nelson Rums.

    It's a Simpsons reference. Which is at least vaguely metal, no?

    I only knew of the poor gay male slang or the urban dictionary thing but upon googling it there was a dude named lord Nelson who was a rear admiral. Simpsons is kinda metal but the history of a one armed rear admiral taking on Napoleon's army is uber metal.

    Dig em. Don't see a dead goose on Dark Lord's belt anymore, though. Bummer.

    You haven't heard? FFF and GI made amends and are brewing a collab.
