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.

Deep amber with a little bit of head. Decent lacing.The nose is a nice mix of both bourbon and brandy.T aste is cherries and vanilla first, followed by some milk chocolate and caramel. The oak is present, along with a sweet sugary quality of brown sugar. Full mouthfeel.

MotherBrother (817) - Aalborg, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2012
Shared with Steffen and Stefan. Pour murky brown, with a small off-white head. Aroma is really complex, with lots of barrel, bourbon, vanilla, and plenty of brandy/bourbon soaked prunes, dates. Taste is sweet and complex. Semi-full body, with an average carb. (Can really both taste and feel the "Angels Share" in this one)

Scopey (9389) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2012
Tap at PPCB. It pours very dark brown (nr black), with a thin off-white head. The nose is vanilla, wood, whiskey, roasted malt, alcohol, coconut, toffee and liquorice. The taste is roasted malt, salted caramel, toffee, wood, vanilla, whiskey, molasses, petrol, dark chocolate, liquorice, pepper and smoke, with a long warming, dry finish. Full body and moderate carbonation. There is a lot going on in this one, but thankfully the balance is there. Good stuff.

southamptonsam (116) - New York, USA - MAR 9, 2012
Even better than I expected. A perfect bourbon, cognac, cherry imperial stout. Perfect level of carbonation that keeps it from tasting too sweet. Best to drink it in small sips that you let play on your tongue. Great beer.

tgncc (3020) - Bellmore, New York, USA - MAR 9, 2012
Via trade with Mashmaster. The aroma is gorgeous. A mix of oak, vanilla, brandy, bourbon, fruit, molasses. The appearance is stout like, deep black, light tan head, oily film on the glass. The flavor is oak, vanilla, boozy, fruit, chocolate, molasses. The finish is booze, fruity sweet, light pine. Mdium/thick in body. Excellent. Thanks, Tom.

Pours evenly without much head, of tan color. Black to brown in appearance. Aroma of raisin and bourbon. Complex flavors of bourbon and raisin at first, then after taste of coffee and chocolate. Smooth and silky. Good beer.

HighWine (955) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2012
Tap at Map Room in Chicago. Dark brown pour with an off white ring around the glass for a head. Agave nectar and golden brown sugar in the nose with milder bourbon than I expected. Taste is brandy, bourbon, and coffee all blended into a highly drinkable and flavorful glass. Full in the mouth. Delicious.
