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.

This was interesting. More carbonated than the barrel aged beers I paid for as a sinner and saint, so that was pleasant. The bourbon was still overly dominant. I honestly couldnít taste or smell more than cocoanut and biscuit.

Bottle. Corks pops off with a nice little pop, hoping this one is carbonated. Poured into a duvel tulip glass a dark brown almost black color wih a slight tan head. Nice aroma of bourbon in the nose, I really donít get the brandy at all but thatís ok. Vanilla, dark roast, chocolate, and booze rounds out the rest of the nose. Medium/heavy mouthfeel. Very rich flavors! A mix of lots of flavors; dark chocolate, bourbon, oak, booze, and black licorice in the flavors. Really nice. A sipper for sure. Alcohol warms the body whole drinkin this one.

Bottle... Poured deep brown with a tan head. Very nice! Sherry and wine-like. Big boozy and lots of roast, barley grains, vanilla with a whiskey character sneaking in. Creamy, subtle palate with a sugary finish.

375ml bottle courtesy of Tim and Rachel. Very boozy, brandy aroma, very sweet, dark fruits, grapes, plums, prunes, the alcohol is present on the nose but not as much on in the taste. Delicious.

12.7 oz. bottle- Pour almost pitch black with a nice soapy mocha head (whatís with all the reviews of a flat or no head beer, I did not get that at all, this beer had a thin yet remaining head until the last drop) , aroma is chocolate, suprisingly, and some sweet impy stout sugars. The flavor is chocolatey with a bite, If I didnít know better Iíd think this was a chocolate beer, the barleywine doesnít really show itself (I guess those evil serpent bitches have won this time). There is a nutty character to it as well. A sipper for sure, but very well crafted. 15 minutes later- Wait, the angels have arrived, i taste strong notes of a very strong barleywine, replaced from chocolate, in fact I donít even taste chocolate anymore, weird. I guess good has triumphed over evil once again. (seriously this tastes totally different than when I first opened it, I do think there was a battle going on in this bottle?)

375 ml bottle from Plaza Liquors - Pours a dark brown color with a 1/2 finger thick tan head. Yeah, we have carbonation. Very light lacing. Aroma is quite vinous with oak/bourbon and dark esters. Flavor is chocolate, light vanilla, esters, and oak. Quite nice. Medium to full body. Just a touch too hot for me. Still, a very nice beer.

black pour. small khaki head. huge tobacco, sugar, milky caramel, alcohol in the finish..predictable and cloying..flavor of big licorice, tobacco, raisin, molasses, sweet bourbon. milky goodness. seems to slightly (and thankfully) separate itself from other big blends/stouts at such abv. creamy, dense mouthfeel. soft and nicely carbonated

Travlr (11214) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 12, 2011
Bottle courtesy of Nickls, thank you sir! Hazy reddish brown, scant edge head. Aroma of port wine and Herseyís syrup. Taste is dark milk chocolate and balsamic vinegar in a combination that somehow works, kind of like the chocolate and chilli in a nice Mexican mole sauce. Nice stuff.

skortila (4483) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAR 11, 2011
Bottled. The aroma has chocolate, raisins/dark fruits, light roast and bourbon. Dark brown - black coloured beer with a thin, off-white/beige head. The taste is sugarry sweet, has bourbon, chocolate, some vanilla, overripe dark fruits. Full bodied. Really a well designed blend.
