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

Dfonorow (1420) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2011
Pour is close to black but dark brown on the edges with a very small tan head. The head fades instantly and doesnít leave much lacing at all. Aroma is extremely boozy with some hints of vanilla, darker fruits, and roasted malts. Flavor is very heavy on the alcohol in both the body and the finish. Some hints of sweet vanilla, buttered bread, and chocolate, but its mostly just bourbon. Very thick and viscous mouth-feel.

pineypower (2504) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - MAY 18, 2011
Bottle from Caponeís. Pours out almost black with a thin tan head. Aroma is of sweet chocolate, bourbon, oak and raisin. Taste is complex with a nice silky smooth mouthfeel. Chocolate, oak, bourbon, fig, raisin, earth and the finish rounds off with a slight alcohol burn. Once again a top notch brew from Lost Abbey.

Small dark tan head, fades quickly dark dark brown nearly black with choc edges... Dark fruits and bourbon, some vanilla, choc, licorice, choc comes out as it warms... Intense though a bit muddled, semi sweet, some dark fruits, bourbon, light vanilla, and chocolate... Lively, full bodied, some alc though not overly present, a little creamy... WOW, loads of flavor, loads of aroma, intense...

Bottle from HH22... thanks tim... Shared at SL. Aroma is boooooozy, wow... lots of alcohol notes with some roasted malts and some chocolate... Nice pour though.... Black, decent head. Taste reminded me of the angels share.... Boozy, alcohol notes, roasted malts with some nice chocolate bitterness. If the alcohol wasnt such a factor this beer would kick a$$. Medium body, kind of creamy, low carbonation. Either way a unique beer that I enjoyed. Thanks Tim

madvike (2696) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 16, 2011
Bottle shared by Tooch4321...thanks Adam! - Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Brandy is apparent in the nose, along with tons of sweet dark malt and a bit of smokiness. The brandy/bourbon mix is much more pronounced in the taste, with tons of dark malt and yeasty, dark rye bread. Itís flat as hell with a syrupy, thick body. Fun and complex, but fairly boozy and a little overbearing.

dnstone (2137) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 15, 2011
Black in color with slight tan head. Woody vanilla complexity. Incredibly smooth, roasty dominated with boozy wood and vanilla tones. A great smooth, complex beer.

Nickls (1829) - SE DC, Washington DC, USA - MAY 6, 2011
Bottle. Almost black, darky brown with a lightish tan head. Dark candied raisings, slight bourbon in the aroma, rounding sweetness, and a touch of dark fruits. A bit more savory in the flavor, boozey, dark fruit, hint of chocolate. Viscous and thicker body with tiny carbonation bubbles. Good stuff.

tastybeer (1714) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - MAY 3, 2011
Bottle, thanks for sharing tarheels. Pours dark brown/mahogany with a small, quickly disappearing yellow head. Aroma is buttery, bourbon, coconut, vanilla, a lot going on here. Just great. Flavor is sharp alcohol, bourbon, chocolate, coffee. Palate is oily. I canít really get into this, the aroma is great but the beer itself is a hot boozy mess.

biggirlpanties (181) - Carlsbad, California, USA - MAY 3, 2011
Thanks to tarheels86. The pour is a moderately opaque dark brown with a frothy head that quickly disappears. Aroma is caramel is coffee, some roast, nothing too intense but definitely pleasant. Taste is caramel and lots of bourbon. You can definitely taste the Serpentís Stout in there as well, which I loved. Palate is great. Smooth, and full-bodied. I definitely enjoyed this one.

GT2 (8380) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAY 2, 2011
375mL. The pour is a tepid, hazy, deep mahogany with a lively, small, deep yellow head. Little retention and lace. Nice, low carbonation for this style. Aroma is very full and rich: heavy buttery bourbon, rich coconut oil, cinnamon, apple butter, old port. Approaching a 9/10 on the nose. Taste is rich, chocolate, butter, hazelnut, Nutella, dark chocolate ganache. Palate is rich, full, sharp, lightly tannic, oily to the extreme. Soft. Mild alcohol warming and slight rich booziness. Really delicious. Reminds me a bit of BA Santaís Little Helper with less carbonation and little more alcohol kick. So good- I wish it came in 750s. Canít wait to try some more of this in a couple of months or so. Doesnít really need to cellar that much anymore. This is very much good to go.
