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 ďThe Angelís Share.Ē We couldnít agree more. Our Angelís 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.

2007 ABV: 11.5%, gold lettering, 750ml only

On tap at Jonís Philly BW Lost Abbey tap take over with Tomme Arther himself. Pours murky dark brown with a half finger tan head with nice legging. Aroma is brandy, dark fruits, vanilla, dates, butterscotch, caramel, sweet malts, molasses, woody notes, and amazingly almost no noticeable cohol. Taste is brandy, dark fruits, woody notes, vanilla, molasses, caramel sweet malts, butterscotch, and maybe just a little booze has it warms. Has a medium-full body with a creamy, chewy, slightly oily mouthfeel and mostly sweet, slightly warming, long, lingering finish. Overall, a amazing world class barley wine that is just as good as the bourbon barrel aged Angelís Share.

McNeillR (1645) - SCOTLAND - MAY 14, 2015
Dark mahogany brown, decent ringed wet sandy head. Rich, sweet, burnt wine and noteably boozy. Sultry initial taste; lean boozy, soft woody, blackcurrant soy and . Fades quickly from the richness, although itís a decent dunt of a mouthfeel from a soft carbonation. Finishes lean, meaty sweet malt and a rainbow of barrell sweetness.

Beersmithbacon (100) - San Luis Rey, California, USA - MAY 8, 2015
A fantastic brandy like aroma. Flavor of complex malts balanced by mild brown sugar. Pour with medium carbonation and mild fruits lingers through malty complexity.

Unique and unique, for a barley wine. Combo of barley wine and Belgian strong. Wine like flavor if elderberries. Hops of earthy English barley wine. Some oak and cigar box in there. Well balance with all the unique flavors.

XaenDovet (1204) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 11, 2015
Draught at neighborhood. Pours a diseased black blood brown. Unreal aroma of brandy, wood, vanilla, caramel / maple, plum. Taste is sweet. Palate is chewy, sticky, soft. I'd turn into a cannibal if a person were marinated in this.

Draft at Barrel Republic. Pours murky brown with a thin, off white head. Tastes like smooth strong alcohol, lightly astringent, very strong raisin, dried dark fruits, earthy malt, light licorice. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like raisins, booze, astringent, dark fruits, woody.

2009 bottle, big brandy wine aroma with some intense fruity and dark oak nose. Flavor of sweet alcohol heat and plenty of different malts. Nit too bad on carbonation considering. Definitely for the angels.
