Hey Tomme, stop releasing this series until you can work out the details, or just put it on tap so we can go ahead an carbonated it for you as it seems to be very difficult. 2009 Bourbon version. A: I struggle to pull the plug on this one. It reminds me of decorking a wine bottle; I say this because it has so little carbonation evident on the corking, that there canít be any carb. So I pour it, and here we are: flat as Kansas. Dark brown. No lacing. Hazy even at the edges. S: Bourbon, minerals, maybe a hint of urine. Lots of sweet malt. A little over the top with the minerals. Some raisin. T: The bourbon is again, quite strong. It then reminds me of a good helping of burnt peanuts or peanut butter on burnt toast. Hints of dark raisin and dark chocolate. M: Well, without any carbonation, Iím left with a cloyingly sweet and thick ale. Dry finish. Shit. O: Well, I have had Brandy and Bourbon version several times. I will no longer be purchasing Angelís Share. Tomme canít manage to do properly and appears to be too proud to make it right. Serving type: bottle 07-13-2011

Poured into a tall tulip glass and head barely any head that disappeared immediately. Had a dark red to brown color. Great in the nose sweetness and bourbon. Hints of dark malts with an aggressive boozy dry finish that is almost creamy. Great beer!

Wow intense nose! Very aggressive and boozey. Light body in the world of barley wines. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

haukur (1306) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - DEC 5, 2013
Huge oaky boozy aroma, some vanilla, raisins, bourbon. No head. No carbonation but it does not matter that much. The oak is dominant but this beer is big! I find some yeasty hints also. Warm finish. Nice winter sipper.

Location/Date:Bottle split with Dave on November 30th, 2013.

Appearance: Pours a dark black.
Aroma: Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, and chocolate.
Taste: Chocolate, light bourbon, vanilla.
Palate:Medium, smooth.

Summary: This is definitely different than many barleywines Iíve had. More on the chocolate, hint of bourbon but not overpowering on the booze. Really nice.

kevinator (932) - The Colony, Texas, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Nice sweet whiskey aroma, which I assume is the bourbon. Caramel notes as well. Pretty burgundy color that was smooth and syrupy. No head to speak of. Carbonation was mild. Any more would not have worked. Very oily and viscous texture. The OG much have been pretty high. Sweet malt flavors with vanilla and toffee. A strong flavor of whiskey with alcohol notes. Definitely a sipping beer and great example of this breweryís prowess.

Vells (690) - LATVIA - NOV 24, 2013
Intense caramel maltiness, sweet bourbon, raisins, noticeable vanilla, dried dark fruits, intense aroma of wood, decent hops. Complex aroma bomb. Smooth and nicely warming finish. Bit sticky. Not too pushy sweetness. Another huge brew by Lost Abbey. Price/performance makes this "must have at least once"

2008 bottle shared at Leviís house. Uncarbonated. Rich leathery tobacco bourbon chocolate tones. Caramel bourbon juice. Sweet, lovely beverage. Delicious, but the lack of carbonation hurts the overall.
