Deliverance is an especially complex blend that combines brandy-barrel-aged Angel’s Share and bourbon-barrel-aged Serpent’s Stout, and the 2017 vintage is tasting great right now. We have fewer than 39 cases of this for the club, and Deliverance is one of those beers that, due to the age of beers needed for the various blends that go into it, isn’t produced every year. We’re pretty excited to get a chance to offer this release while it’s tasting right at its peak.
Deliverance 2017 pours a deeply colored, viscous deep brown that goes to cherry cola at the edges. The aroma shows exceptional depth courtesy of the extra aging, with dense dried fruit and brown sugar and caramel. It’s warming and super rich from the get-go, but really easy to dig into at this point. Light carbonation couples with warming fruity alcohol to keep this one at just the right impact on the tongue. As you’d expect from the base beers, there’s just a ton of stuff going on here: intricate oxidative character, layered caramel, maple syrup, rich cocoa and chocolate, and a fruity, warming presence from its barrel influences. It manages to bring together its stout and barley-wine constituents seamlessly—in an effortlessly massive release.
