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.

In a word, smooth. Pours black bodied with a small thick head. Pleasant and roasty aromas. Tasty stoutish and also strong dark stuff, with bourbon in distant secondary, which is a good thing.

A little cloying, overly sweet, ok carbonated. Flavors are like dead dark chocolate, some caramel, soy, big soy, syrup, fig. Overall just not my cup of beer. Shame on the cost factor.

Bottle. Pours brown with a small to spare, rocky tan head, little to no retention or lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, caramel, toffee, nutty, dark fruit), light hops (floral), and average esters (apple/pear) with notes of wood, alcohol, raisin, prune, date, port, and maple syrup. Flavor is heavy malt (cookie, caramel, toffee, dark fruit), light hops (floral, spicy), and average esters (apple/pear) with notes of wood, alcohol, raisin, prune, date, port, maple syrup, and vanilla. Full body, high warmth, low carbonation and creaminess with a sweet texture and dry and biting finish. Unfortunately, another under-carbonated barrel-aged beer from Lost Abbey. The aroma starts out giving me hope, but the alcohol hotness and lack of carbonation really detract from the rest of the experience. At least this was not as expensive as the barrel Angelís Share.

Massive in every sense. Fantastically blended. You have the fire of the angelís share with the stealth and lushness of the serpentís stout. Big body. Big flavour. Big burn haha. Actually itís not overally hot, just a real assault on hte senses - in a good way. Very highly recommended.

[Bottle] shared by Armin. Thanks! Pours a clear deep brown with a soapy beige head. Aroma is pretty boozy, fair amount of bourbon and wet oak, light vanilla, moderate sweetness, coconut, roasted malts, and somewhat sweet caramel. Fairly hot, but well balanced, bourbon is fairly prominent, roasty for sure, chocolate, caramel, and dark fruits. The mouthfeel is fairly thick, perfect carbonation. Really a nice, nice beer.

Very similar to Angels Share which makes sense since it is a blend that includes the great ale. Pours black with a thin head that is basically non-existent. Great on the nose. Tastes of bourbon, brandy, fruit, malt, caramel. A bit sweeter than AS. Overall a great ale.

Kevin (2065) - New Mexico, USA - DEC 25, 2010
pours black and is almost flat. reminded me a lot of the angelís share, but with a lot more chocolate flavor. booze and berry is strong, gets much more dry and whiskey like the warmer it gets. the sweet fruit is gone by the time i get to the last 3rd. lot of barrel vanilla and wood. too hot in the finish. more carb would be nice also.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - DEC 25, 2010
500 ml bottle. Deep dark brown with a small light tan head. Huge aroma that is very boozy with bourbon, oak and port wine, also lots of caramel, toffee and vanilla. The flavor is more warming boozy bourbon and wine with smooth sweet malt and some light roasty bitterness. Full body with mild carbonation and a long dry, warming finish. Outstanding beer, very complex, flavorful and rich but still very drinkable. The aroma of this this was about as good as I could imagine a beer smelling.

TreborWhip (392) - Reading, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2010
Pours dark brown with brown head. Aroma dominated by alcohol. Flavors of brown sugar, toffee, molasses, caramel, licorice, and booze. Each sip seemed to bring something new to the taste buds and it improved as it sat in my tulip glass. The sweetness lingered on the palate long after swallowing. Delicious.

375ml Bottle: Sweet aroma of roasted malt, tobacco, oak, caramel, light coffee, tar, light chocolate, Bourbon, vanilla, slight coconut, and a hint of alcohol. Poured pitch black in color with a tiny brown head that disappeared quickly, except for around the edges. Slightly sparkling. Opaque. Flavor is heavily sweet. Tastes of roasted malt, Bourbon, light oak, light tar, light chocolate, tobacco, vanilla, and slight coconut. Medium to full body. Viscous, slick, then lightly dry texture. Zero to little carbonation. Finish matches the aroma and flavor, and is slightly dry. 12.5%ABV is slightly present in the nose, but not in the flavor.
