Body is chestnut-black, and garnet-black at the very edges. head was thin and foamy, a dark burnt sienna, short and quick. Aroma is like a barley wine, - vinuous sweet sherry, oak, light vanilla, and bourbon. also prune aroma, very sweet. Flavor is a strong and sweet syrupy malt, but not at all sticky. lively carbonation and a bourbony sweet sherry flavor that builds into a slow burn. a little charred oakyness and faintly smoky. some prune and bitter hoppyness in the finish. spicy aftertaste. ASA or barley wine? definitely from the west coast but the style is debatable.

375ml bottle, 2013 vintage. Wonderful aroma consisting of vanilla, oak, caramel and just the slightest hint of booze. Pours extremely dark brown with a reddish hue to it and a very thin light tan head with no lacing. Starts with sweet caramel and oak. Finishes extremely smooth with a lot of vanilla and more wood. Rich, full bodied beer that is extraordinarily smooth. An excellent, well-balanced bourbon ale that highlights the barrels used. Simply amazing!

2008 vintage bottle pour split along side with the current Angels Share. Thanks again T for making this happen. Pours black with a thin tan head that will stick around. Sweet graham cracker, marshmallow like aroma. Super sweet flavor. Very smooth flavor all the way through. Just a solid, heavy big league beer all around. Really enjoy the Angels share beers, and actually liked this one a little better than the regular. Great stuff.

Bottle. Ahhhhh….! This is a beauty in every thinkable way. Pours dark with a red hue and with no head at all. Fabulous aroma with sweet prunes, dark fruits, molasses and oak, as well as chocolate and some pleasant whiffs of liquorice and alcohol. Body is oily, soft and velvety without carbonation. Flavour is sweet with roasted malts and caramel, as well as liquorice, coffee and chocolate and nice sweet barrels of oak with vanilla and molasses making for an excellently sweetly balanced finish sticking forever. What an exceptional brew!
