Poured into a wine glass on 05.19.14.

A: Midnight black with no red in the glass. No head, only a tan ring at the top.

S: Strong vanilla, brandy, bourbon, wood barrel. Amazingly complex!

T: Vanilla, dark cherry, plum dominate. Oak barrel, milk chocolate, raisin are subtle.

M: SIlky smooth. It's like velvet. Somewhat chewy.

O: This is a beer for a special event. To say that it is complex does not do it justice. I got a wash after wash of flavor. It was very difficult to pick apart. I didn't think that the blend of Serpent's Stout and Angel's Share would work, but oh man it does.

Rating: A+
