Down in Kentucky and across the pond in Scotland, distillers who age their whiskeys for many years refer to the evaporation of the spirits from their barrels as “The Angel’s Share.” We couldn’t agree more. Our Angel’s Share is a barrel aged burgundy colored ale infused with copious amounts of dark caramel malt to emphasize the vanilla and oak flavors found in freshly emptied brandy barrels. Each batch spends no less than 6 months aging in the oak. The beer is available in 750 ml bottles and on draft at inspired locations.

Hoprider (438) - DENMARK - MAR 15, 2016
N: prunes, charamel, even some hops but mostly big beautiful oak character. Not the sweet spirity kind but fat and fruity and yeasty banana bonbons. Dark fruits galore. T: dark sugars and oaky tanins. Clear barleywine caramel.. Mouthfeel is oily and with low carb. Great fruity aftertaste with a semi hot and sweet Finnish

(bottle) Pours a black-brown complexion with quickly dissipating head. No glass lacing. Aroma of chocolate cherry cordial candy and alcohol. The flavor is an intense deep malt with brandy, dried dark fruits and some anise. Lingering palate.

ADfan (852) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 29, 2016
On tap it is dark brown with a small beige head. The aroma has booze, roasted malts and roasted fruits. Taste is big & boozy. There is some bourbon up front but smooth. Then there is some figs, plums and hint of vanilla. Great balance for such a young beer. Long finish, great beer.

ARH (1118) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2016
12.7oz bottle, poured into a chalice. The aroma is a blend of leather, raisin, molasses, vanilla, light bourbon / rum, and oak. It pours a thick and muddy looking mahogany with a mild tan, soap head that leaves a light and wispy retention with mild lace. The taste is highly sweet with a complimentary medium bitterness. The texture is chewy with a soft, light fuzz, and a full body with notes of raisin and cherry, oak, molasses, and vanilla. The smooth finish is warm and boozy with vanilla rum and herbal notes, as well as oak and dark chocolate. It’s aftertaste is woody and herbal with a light cherry touch, and is mostly clean.

tightslice (999) - Redwood City, California, USA - FEB 2, 2016
Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is a strong and glorious Old Fashioned...bitter peels, cherry, bourbon...even some Scotch whiskey with herbal liqueur. Taste is a rum soaked raisins, dark fruits...can’t get away from the Old Fashioned vibes. This is a thick boy, a boozy concoction, one for the ages and a very wonderful sipper. Wish there were more.

BeerFunGuy (875) - California, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Cherry cordial is what strikes me in the aroma. It reminds of Christmas and the chocolates my parents would get from my aunts and uncles. It's has a boozy bite but sweet inviting flavor. Rich brown color.

Bottle @ Steasy’s. Thanks for sharing! Deep amber pour with a small off-white head. Surprisingly fruity nose. Cherry and strawberry skin. A bit of fudge. Fruit and caramel dessert. Flavor skews sweet. Nutella spread and caramel. Light fruitiness. A bit hot. Full and rich. A nice sipper.
