From a small test batch to the bottle you now hold in your hands, this isn’t a one-and-done beer. Sit back, have a few, and enjoy your session.

A blend of Bourbon Barrel Aged Serpent’s Stout and Brandy Barrel Aged Angel’s Share. You see in Bourbon Barrel Aged Serpent’s Stout we have captured the essence of one very evil beer (the Devil’s brew if you will). Blacker than the strongest plague and hotter than Hades itself, there’s fire in this beer- a veritable cauldron of Bourbon infused beer. Left to its own devices, this would be one sinister liquid. Yet, we have tempered this odious darkness with heaven sent Saintly created Angel’s Share. And together, these two beers will work in harmony to deliver us on that day.

This is most definitely a yeast driven beer. In the nose, you will find hints of pepper, fresh apples and some faint clove notes. The melange of spice and fruits blast out at you like the Devil's own pied piper. It's alluring. TASTE: There's something so silky and seductive about Golden Strong ales. At once, they are light in body yet never stray too far from the Cauldron of Alcoholic riches. Your first sip will reveal a faint malt sweetness that wil be crushed by the Overlord's love of sugar and spice and all things nice. Consuming a whole bottle may find you a banishment to hell.
