I heard someone say the DL on tap there was a barrel aged one. True or not? I'm assuming not, but making sure.

Also, assuming the stuff on tap is what's in the bottle, does anyone know if the sweetness will mellow out after sitting in the bottle?

Sweetness will only get sweeter the more age you put on the beer. As beer ages the hop bitterness (and flavor) drop out. This happens faster at higher temperatures. That's why I trade my darklords and don't even bother drinking them; they are just way too sweet for my taste and I can usually fetch much better crafted (IMHO) stouts like hunahpu's or darkness.

Where was that? The DL I had was at the taps closest to the brewery on the left side when facing the brewery.

Thanks for the info.

Over at the guest taps. It didn't last long at all.

If you just got regular Dark Lord (which is all I was able to get) it was the 2013 batch. If you got one of the barrel aged ones (as indicated on the sign) then you did get a barrel aged batch that may or may not be this years DL (depends on how long they barrel age it I guess) I missed out on buying a pour of BA vanilla bean, waited in line but too many people were cutting in from the sides so it ran out as I got up to the table.

Anyone know who had this homebrewed Dark Lord? I'd really like to get the recipe and process.


"While we were in line way in the back by BMW Constructors some guy was driving around on a trike with a trailer holding a small keg. He said it was homebrewed Dark Lord and it was AMAZING. Anyone happen to know that guy and if he is on Beer Advocate?"

The link is broken.

Have you seen this clone attempt on here?

I have seen that thread (and even posted to it in 2010) but the descriptions don't make me want to try to brew this one.

"My friends and I made pretty much this a while back and aged it in a bourbon barrel with vanilla beans. Having had DL, this recipe tastes nothing like it. It's a good beer, not a great one with actually very little stout characteristic at all. I would think of it more as a Strong Ale. DL is so much thicker and sweeter, this has nowhere near that body. That said, DL isn't really that great to begin with.
"
