Bourbon Barrel Aged Dark Lord

Three Floyds Bourbon Aged Dark Lord15% ABV. I wanted to crack open my 2012 bottle of Bourbon Barrel Aged Dark Lord before going to Dark Lord Day at Three Floyds (Munster, IN) earlier this year. This is a Dark Lord aged in a variety of Bourbon barrels including Woodford Reserve and Heaven Hill. Poured pitch black with a very nice dark brown head. I was hooked once I caught the bourbon aromatics escaping the bottle upon opening it up. The nose picked up cocoa, roast, chocolate, vanilla, light coffee, faint cherries, molasses and, of course, bourbon. The flavors reflected the same attributes that the aroma picked up in addition to some brown sugar. This was incredibly smooth and dangerously easy-drinking. Full-bodied mouthfeel and the finish was a smooth roast bitter. What a treat!
