skortila (5472) - 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.

Bottle. Pours black with very thin beige colored head. The aroma is caramel, toffee, vanilla, oak, bourbon, raisins, dark fruits, and a bit of brown sugar. There is a lot of alcohol in the flavor from the bourbon but nothing that is too aggressive or distracting. The palette is attacked by vanilla, dark fruit, wood and cocoa flavors. There is a sweetness from the brandy that I love. This beer presents such a balance between the two base beers its awesome. I need to snag another bottle of this and cellar it for a bit and see how it matures because I can only see this beer getting better.

Rando7 (779) - Iowa, USA - MAR 7, 2011
Bottle pours purplish-brown with small tan head. Nice lacing. Aroma very nice combination of dark fruits, raisins and chocolate with a little bourbon. Taste dark fruits, chocolate, toffee and bourbon. Palate thick and surprisingly carbonated. Finish bourbon and slight hops. Alcohol very apparent. I really enjoyed this but some will find it too boozy.

12oz bottle thanks to Sean9689
Appearance : Pitch black with a small head. Not much lacing.
Aroma : Rich and syrupy. Note soft licorice and spices. Nice light oxidation. Notes of roasted malt, raisins and chocolate. Very complex.
Taste : Nice raisins and roasted mat. Notes of licorice and chocolate. Finish has notes of dry dark chocolate. Very nice finish. Soft carbonation. Light oxidation notes.
Overall : Very nice stuff. Very complex. Nice presence of light oxidation. Great dark chocolate on the finish. I think its a nice blend. You get the syrupy sweetness of the Angels share balanced by the dry chocolate and roasted malt of the Serpent Stout.

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2011 Big thanks to my (cool) aunt Ann for this one. Thank GOD this thing opened with a bit of a pop - Im so sick of flat beers from Lost Abbey. Pours a deep, dark brown - black in the glass - with a tan head. Ooooh - they may have redeemed themselves with this one. Tons on the nose - brown sugar, booze-soaked dark fruits, some chocolate, molasses, ginger (something like a molasses cookie), a bit of vanilla and oak, and burnt caramel. Seriously complex, and the blend of Serpents and Angels is working beautifully. Its boozy, for sure, but the flavor is pretty nice - roast counters dark brown sugar, and alcohol thins out the molasses quality. It has quite a bit going for it, but the more sips I take, the more I realize its just simply too boozy. Again - Im astounded that Tomme finally got his act together and bottled something with a bit of carbonation - but youd better be ready for this one, cause itll kick you in the ass. Hard.

suprchunk (2985) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAR 3, 2011
Black as oil. No head, looks like motor oil poured in my glass. Smells of molasses, pepper, alcohol, vanilla, bourbon. Tastes of sweet vanilla and chocolate-y blend of spiced molasses. Coats the mouth with a nice velvety chocolate mixed with a burn of alcohol. This beer is pretty damn good. If I wouldnt get too tanked I could drink it all night.

Another dandy from, "hannont". Colour... very dark brown with no head. Nose... burnt sugar, Bourbon and turbinado. Palate... frothy, sweet and very boozy with dark brown sugar, sticky toffee pudding, Christmas cake, vanillin, molasses and waves of Bourbon on the ultra sweet/cloying finish.

MrBunn (2764) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2011
Bottle with monster huge stupid thanks to gorditoabd... You win! Anyhow, anticipation had been building and the moment is here. Its dark brown, although not quite as thick as I had thought. Totally opaque, very little head, but there are signs of carbonation. First approach of the nose almost has me convinced to not drink this... maybe pour it on my pillow or something for some longer term enjoyment. Lots of dark sugars and stickiness. Im not sure where to even begin or end on describing the nose, so Ill just throw up a lousy attempt: Brown sugar, prunes and raisins, toffee. Flavor is spectacular as well... the booze is just plain obvious and leaves a wonderful burn throughout the whole experience. Sticky and dark sweetness covers it up a bit as does a little bit of oak, but the whole experience is like a though experience of what would happen if you mixed brown sugar, toffee, chocolate, some dried dark fruits and bourbon... lots of bourbon... and then sat there sipping on it. Spectacular.

375ml bottle pours an oily, lightly opaque black with zero head. Nose is vanilla, malty, nutty. Flavor is the same, sweet, brown sugar, some vanilla, nuts, oak. Finish is smooth.
