Bottle. [After party @ Papsoe, thanks buddy] Dark mahogany like color. Aroma was very complex with notes of dried fruit, mild bread, wood and vanilla like, very vinous, mild underlying hoppy feel as well. Over the palate came an explosion of notes with raisins, prunes, toffee, and almost sweet chocolate like. Full bodied with an average carbonation and thick mild alcoholic texture. Heavy sweet flavor with good counter bitterness and a hint of acidic as well. Lingering complex dried fruity and bread like finish. Oh man this one was extremely well brewed. 8 / 3 / 9 / 5 / 17

Tasted at the Real Ale Festival VIP session. Pours a murky brown with a light head, nice lacing. Aroma of caramel, roasted malt and wood. Very smooth and drinkable. All around, it was a pretty good beer but it really didnít live up to all the hype. Everybody that I talked to at the tasting agreed so I will be looking to try it from the bottle and get a second opinion.

Extremely loud pop that echoed in the large warehouse Iím drinking this in. The beer is EXTREMELY carbonated. Violent carbonation is visible in the murky dark brown/black body. A GIGANTIC 6 finger foamy tan head sits on top. Very nice lacing. Fortunately it didnít gush because I had it pretty cold. The aroma is strongly molasses and brown sugar meets bourbon and oak. Smells like an old ale. Some strawberry hops. Chocolate and dried wood. Caramelized malts. The flavor is rich milk chocolate that morphs into a deeply caramelized molasses and dark fruits like dates and raisins. Bourbon is strong but doesnít impart alcohol. Surprisingly smooth for 12.5% ABV. Rich full body that isnít sticky but has a nice lingering quality. I like this beer a lot!

Bottle courtesy mreusch. (BIG thanks to Matt!) Heavily carbonated as it blows the cork out, pours a deep mahogany with a lingering dark cream head. The nose is exquisite with subtle bourbon, candied and brown sugars, and a touch of butter. The flavor is equally complex with an additional burn in the end. Great beer.

375, corked and baled. Gusher. 08 release. Nearly opaque mahogany with dense creamy tan head, super rocky at first. Thick sheets of lace. Big bourbon and wood nose. Creamy body with nice wooly carb. Woody, bourbony, caramelly. Maybe too much bourbon and too few other flavors, but still delightful.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2008 Pours super dark brownish amber with a massive rocky 3 finger head that almost overflows the snifter. Retention and lacing are excellent. Smell is wonderfully sweet with brown sugar and caramel. There is a definite boozy bourbon aroma as well but extremely well integrated with the sweetness of the malts. I actually also got the slightest hint of sour in the nose at the finish. As much as I would like to "buck the hype", this is one of the best tasting beers I have ever tasted. It’s wonderfully creamy with molasses and caramel up front with the bready malts. The bourbon is present but very subtle and plays with the sweet vanilla tastes and dark fruits. In a word, spectacular. As mentioned before, for a bourbon barrel beer this one is incredibly smooth and creamy yet highly carbonated. The bubbles just tingle the tongue...so, so good. This is my first Angel’s Share and I have to say it’s one of my desert island beers. The flavors are so big yet so well balanced, the hype is completely deserved.
