375 bottle. Very carbonated on opening. Black with a fluffy brown head. Nose is whiskey/bourbon/boozy which overwhelms any "beer" nose. Taste is overly bourbon/whiskey and alcoholic. Also hints of raisins, chocolate, sugar. Very sweet and tasty but the bourbon overwhelms everything in this beer. A sipper for sure with a full rich body.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2008 375 ml Bottle. Dark brown with a huge head. Aroma of toasted coconut, carmel and dried fruit. As it warmed the aroma became more like shellac. Taste is quite boozy with caramel, vanilla, dark dried fruit and some oak. Wonderful.

Bottle (375ml corked & caged). Shared with blankboy & tupalev, bottle courtesy of irishboy - who else?. HAD to open this tonight - after the Labbat Blue Dry 10.1% it was an obligation. Poured deep, deep mahogany, large lasting fluffy mottled tan/brown head. Lush well-blended bourbon/vanilla with medium-roast malt, cocoa, nuttiness, dry grain - not over the top at all. Excellent taste - oak, vanilla, fresh grain, definite alcohol and a surprising presence of green herbal hops. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel, surprisingly lively mouthfeel, a fresh, bourbony finish but the underlying BW malt and alcohol stand up to the barrel aging well - outstanding: I think I prefer the (version 001 of course!) regular Angel’s Share, but this is stunning in its own right - once again, huge thanks, Richard.

375 ml. bottle. Dark brown color with a medium tan head. Aromas of sweet chocolate malt, Irish coffee, and vanilla. Flavors of cappuccino, sweet vanilla, and a hint of oak. This beer is quite smooth and pleasantly warming. It was a pleasure to try such an excellent barrel aged beer - the only problem is now I really need to try the standard release... A superlative effort!!

Bit of a gusher upon opening; quite carbonated. Delicious coconut caramel aroma. Sweet but not cloying with rich caramel and a light piney hop finish. Wish this was easier to find!

What a great beer. I cant decided if i like this one better than the original or not. Pours out a deep brown color with a large head. Aroma was sweet with notes of malt, choco, and best of all, BOURBON! Flavor is sweet, but dominated by the bourbon. This was another great beer by these guys.

Dark, rusty appearance. Smell of sweet bourbon. Variations of berries in flavour, including hints of blackcurrant, strawberries, a good dash of cherry and with a finish of bitter redcurrant. Some sweet malts beneath. Brandy-like alcohol to the finish. Stunning drink, maybe a bit over the top. Chosen as the best American cask-beer at The Great British Beer Festival 2008. Very good, indeed, but I had a few better ones during the festival in Earls Court (05.08.2008).

I figured the first rating after my son was born should be a good one and cracking a "sinners" might not be the best choice, so this bad boy gets the call (due to his birth, I get the bonus of having my mom bring out my beer from Chicago!). This one has a deep brown color with a surprisingly large head (nearly a major gusher!) Aroma is a high quality "down in the barrel" mixture of oak, vanilla, caramel candy, bourbon and sugar. Flavor is woody and bourbon dominant with hefty doses of vanilla, brown sugar, and vinous fruits. Feel is nice with a slight sting and woody thickness. Overall a very good beer, but not quite the standard version. It seems obvious that the base beer is absolutely made for brandy barrels, though bourbon barrels take to it quite nicely. Another awesome PP/LA beer!

We tried both Angels Share blind during a tasting and just guessing which is which was already a challenge. Surprisingly, the Bourbon one came out as my favourite of the two. Basically, it felt less alcoholic to me and also seemed tighter in its aromas, with more of the pleasant vanilla overtones. Both remain quite similar, very complex and integrated barley wines with endless dessert malt and fruit layers all the while not being fatiguing with its high sweetness. The body also felt a bit tighter, not necessarily rounder, but less oily in the bourbon one.
