COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

12.7oz 2013 B bottle. Very dark brown with red highlights. No cap. Aroma of brandy!, raisin, wood, chocolate, coffee, vanilla. Taste is sweet and bitter, with a hint of sour. A coating mouthfeel, that is quite balanced with a medium dryness and low carbonation. Abv is quite subtle.

Not too exciting aroma wise for me. Fruity, slight bit of chocolate for me on the finish, definitely getting some brandy in there too. Initially some sweetness. I have the flu so my palate isn’t what it should be. So maybe a rewrite when healthier. Highly enjoying this one. Pairs well with some Master Kush.

A in ny book. It has been a Lost Abbey holiday season and this has been one of the best. Out if this world taste - rich, complex, with a unique combo of brandy and bourbon aging. Price point high but worth the exoerience at 12.5 abv.

rmussman (1688) - California, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Sampled in a small bomber. Aged probably two years. A really high power brew with big time malts. Served at room temperature which really opened up this brew.

12oz bottle split with friends at a tasting. You can definitely smell the barrel aging, but it does not come through (hot wise) in the taste. Great beer.

375ml bottle from San Diego Steve via jeevan. Pours flat black, no head. Stout and brandy and bourbon aromas, boozy fruit. Liqueur chocolates. Taste has chocolate sweetness, vanilla, more spirit. Prunes in Armagnac. Sticky finish. Nice

Holy crap! This this is a super tasty beast. Strong aromatics of chocolate milk and maple syrup. Super strong but oh so good. Highly recommended!

ekstedt (5211) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 18, 2013
Bottle (375 ml) from Systembolaget. Black with small beige head. Roasted malt aroma with coffee, chocolate, tar and salmiak. Clear barrel cognac notes, but not obtrusive. Full bodied, almost flat. Semi sweet, medium bitterness.

jdb288 (342) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Aged bottle. Black with minimal head. Boozy and warming alcohol presence. Tasted next to a GI BCBS 2013 and found many similarities. This had the brandy notes which were excellent. Very strong showing here.
