Aroma: A complex symphony of scents unfolds—smoky chili, dark chocolate, Colombian coffee, and an unmistakable presence of alcohol.

Tasting the Fire

Taste: The journey through the palate is an adventure of spicy chili, decadent brownies, cognac, and chocolate, concluding with a lingering spice that refuses to be ignored.

Mouthfeel: As the liquid coats the mouth, the full-bodied experience is hot and exceptionally thick, leaving a lasting impression.

A Harmonious Culmination

Overall: Three Floyds crafts a treat for the senses, where robust flavors coexist harmoniously. No element overpowers another, and the manageable heat adds to the allure. The barrel and pepper treatment complements the virgin Dark Lord’s sweet coffee profile, creating a triumphant synergy.
