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.

Very dark in color with a pancake on top. Smells strong of sweet cocoa and whiskey. Full nectar with good carbonation. A strong whiskey essence overshadows the chocolaty malt yet balancing with peach nectar and wild green apples. The finish lingers.

(375ml bottle) Pours a hazy dark brown (near black) body with a spare beige head. Aroma of caramel, vinous, toffee, chocolate, raisins, vanilla, anise, and brown sugar. Flavor of vanilla, toasted coconuts, toffee, chocolate, light brandy, and caramel with a mostly flat mouthfeel and a lightly chalky finish.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2010 12.7 oz corked caged bottle. From Capones. Pours hazy ruddy black with 1-finger brown head. Nose is port winet red skinned fruit, earthy tart sour mashy fruit, figs, hops. Tastes malty, fruity, dry red winey, earthy, complex and a bit hot, and finishes hot and heavy,.

Bottle. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is brandy, dark fruit, bourbon, chocolate, and oak. Could just sit and smell this one for a while. Flavor is brandy, oak, bourbon, dark fruit, vanilla, and chocolate. Medium body. Alcohol is pretty well hidden. Ends a little dry.

blipp (5679) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - DEC 1, 2010
Bottle at Paulís tasting. Pours darker brown with a beige head. Belgian and dark fruity aroma with a hint of bourbony booze, chocolate and a roasty hint. The flavor has raisin/figgy dark fruity notes, some candy sugar, a roasty hint, and bourbon. Bold and complex, but it didnít quite come together. Still enjoyable though. Thanks whoever shared this.

Pours a dark chestnut brown with a tan head. Small amounts of lacing, but certainly respectable for a beer of this heft. Smell brings a lot, with brandy, bourbon, roasted malt, alcohol, dark fruits, and candied sugars all playing a role. Taste is quite similar, although everything isnít quite as integrated in that respect, and the alcohol heat plays a bigger role, which degrades a bit from the mouthfeel. Drinkability is very nice, as this is quite complex. I think age will absolutely do wonders to this one. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-24-2010

arminjewell (5716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 30, 2010
Pours thick black with thin off white head, aroma includes bourbon, vanilla, dark fruit, chocolate, coffee, touch of brandy. Sweet mixing of brandy and bourbon leads to chocolate and coffee, touch of sweet berry and dark fruit, finishing bitter and boozy. Great sipper brew.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 30, 2010
Bottle from Daknole. Pours a dark brown/black with a dark tan head. Nicely carbonated, Iím glad to say. I can smell the booze and spirits from feet away. Whiskey, sweet liquor, wood, bakerís chocolate. The chocolate component is really nice on this. I also get the graham cracker quality I find with Angelís Share. Kinda like a bourbon smore. This is pretty in your face with the liquor but I donít think it is overkill. Taste is bourbon and liquor upfront that fades into a sweet, decadent chocolate syrup finish. Thick. Great dessert beer. I am impressed with this.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 29, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2010 Bottled. Black, thin tan head. The aroma is a boozy blast of bourbon and wood. More bourbon and oak on the flavor, deep roasty chocolate, subtle dried fruit and candied cherry. Very smooth for the percentage. If you enjoy bourbon dominated beers, this is a good choice. It definitely suited my mood at the moment.

doubleo (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 29, 2010
375ml bottle. Pours murky dark brown with a thin tan head that leaves some lace. Smells of sweet vanilla and some funky sour wood notes, overall good but somethingís just not right. Tastes sweet and boozy. Lots of vanilla and cocoa flavors with some roast and a solid dose of warming booze. Mellow though. Full body, smooth carbonation.
