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.

375 into sniffer. Pours a nice inky black with a little bit of head. Very sweet and tons of booze in the nose. Definitely can feel the alcohol going down, but it’s very complex and full flavored so the alcohol doesn’t kill it. Very enjoyable.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2012 Bottle @ Ølbutikken, Stone Brewing Company. Thick, sugary amber pour. Malty nose, light licorice, fruits, spices I?m not qualified to identify. Bourbon, alcohol, cognac?, caramel. Feels infinitely complex.

Defreni (2913) - Husum, DENMARK - APR 4, 2012
Flaske: Mørkebrun klar øl med et tyndt men boblende skumhoved. Fantastisk duft af vanilie bourbon og lidt malt. Smagen er virkelig fantastisk hvor fadlagringen virkelig kommer til sin ret. I det hele taget en klækkerbisken af en dessert øl.

ADfan (752) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 2, 2012
Poured from the bottle it looked very rich and formed a nice head. The aroma was alcohol with roasted fruits and malts. The taste reminds me of chocolate covered cherries. It also has some coffee and licorice to it. The finish is big & smooth.

Aroma is oak and strong alcohol. Gentle on the palate but smooth. This me has a unique barrel aged flavor in that oak blends extremely well with the intense malt.

Placeholder rate only. On tap at urge this time, but only had one drink. Rich malty and roastiness with tart hints behind. Smooth and sharp at the same time. Will rerate from bottle.

PhillyCraft (5070) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2012
Multiple bottles and on tap. Using a 2011 bottle for this review. Pour is pitch black. Tiny brown headm not much lacing going on. Nose is filled with chocolate, caramel, toffee, vanilla, roasted malt, brandy booze. Taste has a bite to it, Cocoa, marshmallow, apple, fudge, dark fruits, and a slightly rusty peat. Another great big beer from Tom Arthur.

Cola color with minimal head poured in Chimay glass. Perfect carbonation for this beer wonderful fruity aroma, notes of cherry fig date you name it with bourbon and brandy prominent, a bit boozy and could use a little more malt backbone, great but almost drinks like a manhattan ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
