Bottle thanks to Zakoon. Thanks buddy! Pours pitch black with a small brown head. Aromas of vanilla, chocolate, fudge, dark fruits, soy, roast, booze and a huge caramel backend. Taste is very sweet, brown sugar, vanilla, sweet chocolate, milky chocolate, dark sweet fruits. Not a lot of barrel compared to how sweet regular dark lord is, but still more barrelsweetness compared to the fruity sweetness regular has.

Bardzo beczkowy, migdaly, wanilia, bomboniera, trufle. Rodzynki. Tez sporo pumpernikla. Bogata, zlozona, intensywna paleta. Bardzo slodki i bardzo cielisty. Extraklasa, alko ukryte poza posmakiem. 4.4

Sampled from bottle at deanso’s courtesy of kermis, happy birthday! Vintage 2012. Big sweet roasted chocolate malts, big but oh so soft bourbon, vanilla, sticky dark toffee, dark fudge, sticky dates, the dark lord has the depth of charcoal black and the softness of red velvet bedsheets. Big sweet, light bitter. Full body, low carbonation. Goosebumps, from the taste or the amount of sugar gushing into my vains. Can’t feel my face. --- Beer merged from original tick of Bourbon Barrel Aged Dark Lord on 08 Jan 2018 at 16:56 - Score: 9

Bottle courtesy of milsem. Pours viscous black with a creamy dark mocha head that leaves some spotty trace on the glass while dissiapting. Smell is malty and tiny fruity with roasted malts, caramel, toffee, vanilla fudge, charred wood, dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, raisins, prunes, dates, ketjap manis, roasted coconut, moist soil and plenty of bourbon alcohol. Taste is heavy sweet, slightly bitter, tiny salty, malty and tiny fruity. Mouthfeel is viscous, syrupy, round, very tiny astringent, slightly boozy and full bodied. Finish is heavy sweet and tiny bitter with syrupy chocolate malts, dark dried fruits and bourbon. Decent but way way way too sweet.

Catch up rating from last night’s RIS bottle share. As expected this is good stuff, 2009 vintage, but not the best of the night. Extremely solid and robust stout, bourbon barrel notes abound. Plenty of heat as well.

2015 bottle shared as rating number 8000 and 49th top 50 tick. Pours clack with a very short lived beige head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla and barrel notes coming out but not as strong as the ’11 Pappy version. A lot more of the base dark lord aspects showing up, molasses, soy, fudge, sweet chocolate and malt. Flavour is heavy sweet. Full bodied with a thick chewy palate and very soft carbonation.
