COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Currently draft only. Recent bottlings have an orange front label.

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.

2010 ABV: 11.5% 375ml Bottling stamp on neck says 2010 but was released in Jan 2011. It is called the 2011 Angels Share Brandy.

tightslice (707) - 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 (871) - 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.

Niksko (542) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 5, 2016
Pours cola brown with a thin tan head. Nose is intense vanilla, honey, toffee, bourbon, maple syrup. Flavor is maple syrup, vanilla, caramel, a little coffee (but only a hint). Sweet finish. So syrupy and delicious, with a lowish carbonation and a syrupy and heavy body. This beer has such intense barrel character, it’s really insane. Very sweet and sticky, really amazing.
