Duclaw event at Pizza Boy, draft offering served in a snifter. The brew appears black in color with a rich khaki head. Some patchy lace fades to spotty marks on the glass. This is an overall nice and rich looking brew with surprising head retention for the brew's strength.

The aroma includes plenty of roast and bourbon. Some trace amounts of anise, coffee and raisony alcohol blend with a raw woody inclusion and a hint of baker's chocolate.

The flavor is raw and oaky with hints of anise, roasty and milk chocolate. Dark fruit like raisons blend with a bourbon flavor deepening the fruity sweet qualities and solvent alcohol aspects.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is much better than DR #1 but still a little rough around the edges but enjoyable. This was a real unique occasion to be able to try both divine retributions side by side. I made a comment about Divine Retribution #1 that it seemed off almost like Colossus was used to cover up a bad batch of Retribution. However, maybe its the collosus I dont like blended in since this blend with Repent seems significantly more enjoyable.

Poured from the bottle into a Cigar City snifter.

The beer pours black with no head to speak of. I'm getting sweet roasted malt in the smell along with lots of bourbon and some vanilla notes. The taste is smoother than I expected it to be. Lots of bourbon here along with some oak and vanilla. This beer wasn't as sweet as I expected it to be, but it was still quite sweet. There is a strong alcohol presence.
