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.

Pitch black and almost no head. Not very much to look at, but then you start tasting and smelling. Whoa! It just keeps on going. Moderate malts with coffee, roasted malts, milk chocolate, nuts, cookie, light hops with citrus fruits and there's also some yeast, vanilla, a clear taste of oak, licorice, bourbon and brandy, caramel, brown sugar, grape, raisin and prune, a hint of smoke and peat, cola, spices, tawny port. The list seems endless. Flavor is complex and subtle and switches from light acodic to light acidic and light bitter, followed by light acidic, light bitter and sweet, then sweet and bitter and warming alcohol and only sweet and warming alcohol and finishing in bitter and alcohol. Body is full with syrupy texture and quite low carbonation. What a beer! Incredible. Together with Westvleteren my number one so far.

Bottle to glass. Pours a pitch black color with a creamy brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, vanilla, molasses. Flavor is strong roasted malts, vanilla, bourbon, chocolate. Lingering bourbon and vanilla with a creamy mouthfeel. Extremely tasty!

HopRedHead (391) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours black with an oily slick and no head. Big aroma of rum and raisins, molasses and dark fruits. Very sweet. Taste has lots of cherries, fig and bubblegum. Low carb makes this really syrupy. Bit too sweet for me but still enjoyable.

Vells (743) - Riga, LATVIA - SEP 13, 2014
Definitely huge brew, but kinda dint worked out for me.. Moderate roasted malts, licorice, dried fruits, bourbon, choco, wood, vanilla. Its quite complex, but in same time too monolith, even boring. Mostly sweet with moderate bitterness. Nice sipping beer, but I prefer each of two brews in this one separate.

Bottle: Thanks, Kevin. Looks like Coca-Cola with no head. A couple small bubbles, maybe. Sticky toffee & caramel candy aroma with light fudge, molasses, raisins, figs, mild anise, & brown sugar in the aroma. Boozy, lots of brandy & alcohol that stings the nostrils. Very, very sweet, too. Taste is the same way. Boozy. Sweet. Huge amount of residual sugars. Dat brewing efficiency. Fusel heat, molasses, faint char & roast, cocoa dust black licorice, burnt caramel. Seems Serpent’s Stout is more relevant on the palate. A bit of raisin, brandy, brown sugar, toffee, anise, & char in the finish. Lingering heat from the booziness, leaves a sticky coating on your teeth. Not bad but really too boozy & sweet to enjoy in any decent quantity.
