3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of tkrjukoff. Pours slightly hazy dark mahogany with no head worth mentioning. Smell is malty and fruity with caramel, sweet dark bread, charred wood, grapes, kumquats and orange zest. Taste is sour and malty with caramel, dark bread, lemon juice, dark grapes, moist wood, red wine vinegar, leather, moist soil, kumquats and orange zest. Mouthfeel is dry, tart and medium to full bodied. Finish is sour with dark bread, caramel, lemon juice, grapes, red wine vinegar, leather, moist soil, kumquats and lemon zest. Quite alright as a strong American sour but clearly infected and not a barley wine or what the brewer intended.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours murky brown with a thin tan head which quickly fades to no lacing. Aroma is of brandy, rum raisins, dark fruits, cherry, molasses, boozy bourbon, sweet malts, and some oaky notes. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma with a lot of brandy, rum, and bourbon oaky notes. Has a full body with a creamy mouthfeel and a sweet, slightly warming, medium long finish. Overall, a world class barely wine that shows characteristics from all of the different barrels used for Angel’s share.
