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.

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 (5925) - 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

BigSound (196) - New York, USA - MAR 26, 2012
From notes. Pours a menesing dark black. An aggressive pour kicks up less than a half inch of head that hisses like the damned. Great aroma, big sweet barleywine like notes, rich toffee, malty sweetness, caramel, some oakieness, defiantly some dark fruit, raisins, and a little cherry like tartness. Flavor is a slightly muted reflection of the nose. Nice toffee, some bourbon flavors are coming out nicely, more so than in the nose. The sweetness is a little more toned down, I get a bit of coffee bitterness complimented by some dark fruit sweetness. Defiantly a sultry booze finish. The body is sitting at a pretty solid medium feel, defiantly more on the silky side than sticky. Carbonation sits perfectly on the light side, giving the brew a little life yet not distracting from the many nuances.

robertjm (853) - Albany, California, USA - MAR 25, 2012
(trade w/adneilsen) 2011 vintage 375ml bottle - Scant bit of foam after pouring into glass. Deep opaque brown body. Aroma very clearly vanilla from the time in barrels. Thick body. Flavors of raisins and plums. Boozy brandy aftertaste. This is one of those sipping beers!! Missed it on tap at Beer Revolution, which would have been interesting to compare this bottle to.

TheHopster (1049) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - MAR 22, 2012
(bottle). A generous pick from Keg_Juggler. Lots of cherry in aroma along with sweet malt. The flavor is intense with cherry, rich malt, prune, some cola and dried fruits which linger on palate. Not boozy for this ABV. Palate is very smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
