COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
His name is Matt Vandenberghe and he created a sweet peach tea drink using Eagle Rare Bourbon as the base spirit. Tomme had a chance to taste these magical drinks during Seattle Beer Week a few years ago and has been looking at recreating this cocktail in beer. The base beer is our famous Angel’s Share that we aged in fresh Heaven Hill Bourbon barrels for 9 months. To this we added some awesome whole peach slivers and a splash of Brettanomyces Clausenni to ferment the peaches. The beer has a great peach nose and a long carmelized bourbon finish. One of the most experimental of all the track series

Theydon_Bois (9273) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2014
Bottle shared at the BIG Friday tasting, massive thanks to our Ken for sharing the entire track set and also to Bruce for providing the accompanying music, additional credit to the new guy who showed up - ’Moonshine Jack’ he was sure a good old boy the way he played his banjo to this one - 03/01/14. Murky chestnut brown with a moderate beige covering that dissipates to spotting and edgework. Nose is bourbon, woody twang, touch of Bounty Bar, toffee fudge, booze, sweet tones. Taste comprises dark toffee fudge, sweet sugars, boozey do, dark fruit tang, rich cake mix, light chocolate. Medium bodied with bite, light warming alcohol in the closure. Ok American strong, booze is fairly well tapered, just a little overly sweet in places for me.

Mega Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Almost opaque dark brown beer, bubbly pale tan head. Palate is smooth with very light fine carbonation. A light touch of dark chocolate leads to sweet and tangy generic fruits that also have a candy vibe. Nice peachy tone on the backend. Finishes with vanilla, bourbon, dark chocolate and peach. Another Track belter!

The nose is toasty, caramel, wood, toffee, vanilla, coconut and jammy berry. The taste is toasty, caramel, tangy dark fruit, vanilla, toffee, light tartness, chocolate, jam and warming alcohol.

maneliquor (3167) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 4, 2014

Nose is bright citrus and stone fruit, orange focus, lemon rind, fig, raisins, cherries. Bourbon kick. Taste is very stone fruit forward, plenty of brown sugar and stewed raisin, toffee, light funk and spice. Fair kick of heat. Nice

Leighton (11437) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2014
Bottle shared during the Track Set segment of the Big Tasting in London. Paired well. Thanks to Ken. Pours murky amber with a wimpy off-white head. The nose has rich, lightly toasted malts, toffee, ripe fruits, figs. Medium sweet flavor with tangy berries, some brown sugar, caramel, dates. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming finish with toffee, brown sugar, dried and tangy berries, faint leather and spices, fruit cake. Good stuff. Novel music pairing.
