Our first release of the embodiment of good versus evil in a barrel-aged blend. Part bourbon barreled The Serpent’s Stout, and part brandy barreled The Angel’s Share, this is our most anticipated release of the summer.

Bottle from Chris, 2004 vintage. Aroma wraps up the ABV, fruity essence, dark pit fruit, oily slick body. Quad? Delicious? Yea!

Beer5000 (5939) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 18, 2016
375 ml bottle. Pitch black body with a dense beige head. Nice, strong aroma of dark malt, molasses, caramel, dry fruit and warming alcohol. Flavor is sweet, dark, medium roasted malt, caramel, dry fruit, spices, moderate bitterness and warming alcohol. Full bodied and long lasting nice aftertaste. A really balanced beer with strong flavors that seems to be incredible integrated with each other. Nothing really stands out, even the alcohol is pretty well hidden, at the same thing nothing seems to be missing here. Great stuff.

Aroma caramel, roasty, alcohol, vanilla, woody, licorice, Appearance black, minimal head, brown foam, Taste medium sweetness, Palate medium body, thin feel, Overall this was a vintage 2014 bottle that has mellowed very nice. The 12.5% is there but very easy to drink. It’s on the lines of a wine. Lots of wood in the taste. It’s a perfect beer for sipping on a cold winter’s night. I would suggest this beer to a friend.

Flaska inköpt på alehouse riga 2014. Svartbrun kulör. Nästan inget skum. Krafull doft. Knäck, russin, burboun och vanilj. I smak mörk choklad, fat, knäck, torkad frukt, portvin och vanilj. Värmande alkohol och fin munkänsla. Otroligt komplex

Senka (1059) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 14, 2015
375cl, thanks FaPhil, 20150926 Looks like black motor oil. Ashy burn aroma. Dry yet sugary and sweet. Very curious combination. Malty, strong and enjoyable to the last drop. Aroma is what sticks for a long time.

Maddog (522) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - DEC 12, 2015
2.5 year old bottle bought at the brewery. Huge, complex with a lot going on. Pours a thick, viscous, headless jet black. Aromas are bourbon, vanilla and some chocolate. Flavors include the same as well as subtle brandy, oak, roasted malts, and dark roasted coffee. Big and boozy.

DandyWolfFloyd (1077) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 6, 2015
Aroma - carmalized sugars, roast, oak barrel, boozy bourbon, and some anise Appearance - dark brown. No head to speak of. Taste - is heavy sweet and astringent roast. Dark fruits, bourbon oakiness as well. Palate - body is full, slick texture, soft carbonation, long boozy finish that holds astringent bitters. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
