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.

That1Guy (2192) - Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2012
Crushed with TheRon and HeyZues. Pours a dark brown/black. Bourbon, wood, and some cardboard on the nose. Flavor is some bourbon, a bit of soy sauce, and cardboard. Oxidized as hell. Want to try fresh.

Marheb (4806) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 21, 2012
Je la verse: Beaucoup d’effervescence comparativement à la Angel share (yen avait pas du tout). Belle robe bourgogne surmonté d’un douillet collet. Je la respire: Vanille, brandy, marmelade et beaucoup de notes boisés. Je la bois: Bien onctueux, assez collant avec le chocolat qui s’ajoute à ce que le nez amenait. Belle offrande.

Cybercat (5055) - Georgia, USA - APR 20, 2012
Pours a deep sable a scratch above black with a thick, if not persistent, tan head. Malty aroma has a strong overtone of bourbon-soaked wood and hints of toffee and chocolate. Distinctive flavor has malty, bourbon, woody, molasses, coffee, fruity - how many notes are there? I seem to get different ones with each sip! And whoa, what an alcohol bite, like a liquid pit bull that has decided your tongue is a juicy steak! Texture has firm body and plenty of fizz and sass, and the tingle it leaves behind decided to sit for a spell. This beer is worth going through hell, high water, airport security and over-affectionate great aunts to get.

uncben87 (68) - Wiesbaden, Hesse, GERMANY - APR 16, 2012
From bottle to tulip. Pours a dark brown with the a hint of red shining through the edges with a large mocha head. Smells of oak, bourbon, chocolate, soy sauce, and alcohol. Tastes of sour dark fruit, dark chocolate, and bourbon with a nice alcohol burn. Good carbonation, more than I expected but it helps with the alcohol. Overall I was pleasantly surprised with this one, starts with the sour fruit and finishes with a chocolatey alcohol burn. Very nice.

maekchu (3400) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 16, 2012
Bottle. Sweet fumes rise into the nose -- barrel notes, bourbon. Dark, opaque brown. Rich dark fruit flavors and a smooth satisfying aftertaste. Full bodied, warming, and rich. The barrel flavors predominate in a good way, accentuating the beer nose and taste -- and not overwhelming them. Great!

sonnycheeba (4956) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 15, 2012
Bottle. Pours deep, dark brown with a trace of beige head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is plums, figs, roasted malt, booze, molasses, and faint floral hops. Flavor is balanced malt and dark fruit esters with booze undertones throughout; dry, semi-sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation with high warmth.

KyotoLefty (9128) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 15, 2012
Bottle from Maekchu. Pretty black with a nice head. Big vanilla and wood nose, bourbon, chocolate, berries. Huge barrel flavor, with some raisins and cola. Nice flavor, somewhat roasty, but the barrel really takes over everything and hides what the actual beer might be like.
