375 mL bottle. Originally reviewed sometime in 2013.
Mostly flat and very dark, but just shy of black. Leggy and viscous.
Smells of lots of brandy and bourbon. Toffee and caramel. Dark roasted malts. Boozy.
Tastes of strong brandy and vanilla. Chocolate comes behind it. The finish is boozy with a nice blend of sweet dark chocolate.
Very boozy. The body drops off a bit. Low carbonation.
Barrel aged sugar bomb. Very tasty. Clownoisseur (485) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - MAR 1, 2017

Oak and vanilla into raisin/fig. Light toffee, light chocolate, light anise. Finishes with a heavy alcohol warmth. Sweet with bourbon and raisin. Light bitter, light roast. Solid beer! koleminer20 (3704) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - NOV 30, 2016
From notes. Enjoyed this at Mickey’s 30th birthday bash on November 05. 375 mL bottle. The pour is a nice light black/dark brown with a thin brown ring of head and no lace. The aroma is full of dark fruits, caramel, roasted malt, light chocolate, and a light alcohol. It’s pretty good. There is a light bourbon to it, and a great sweetness. The flavor is much of the same. There is a light dark fruit, chocolate, caramel, bourbon, and a good fudginess. The mouth feel is thicker and light with a brighter carbonation and a lingeringly sweet and chocolatey bourbon finish. It’s surprisingly good, though it’s sweet. hackobock (4045) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2016

Bottle bought through Drikkeriget. Pours viscous black with a very small mocha head that doesn’t leave any trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty with roasted malts, caramel, toffee, vanilla fudge, charred wood, dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, raisins, moist soil, bourbon alcohol and hints of brandy. Taste is sweet, slightly bitter, malty and boozy. Mouthfeel is viscous oily, round, tiny astringent, boozy and near full bodied.

I’m a huge fan of Deliverance and this inverted demon really delivers. Delicious! slowrunner77 (12139) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 13, 2016
Big and boozy, but also super smooth. Been sittin on this for a bit - more barrel than beer, but I ain’t complaining. Brandy twang and sweet sweet bourbon. Dark fruit, vanilla, oak - serpent stout still shows a little. Delicious brew. deyholla (11721) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 1, 2016
Bottle shared by Adam, thanks! Pours black with no head whatsoever. Aroma has a good amount of dark grains, bourbon and chocolate with some oak supporting. Flavor is boozy with dark grains and bourbon up front supported by oak, nuts and chocolate.
