COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cherry Pie! Cherry Pie! Cherry Pie! At 6.6% abv this light and fruity ale is black in color, although your palate would never know it. Black Angel is fermented on the Wicked Wild yeast and then moved into stripped down Four Roses Barrels and aged on tart cherries, sweet cherries and Italian plums. The white oak and roast malt add notes of vanilla and graham-cracker that when blended with the tart sweetness of the fruit bring out this robust cherry pie flavor that is unmistakable. This sour is a beautiful marriage of fruit and beer that always leaves you wishing the glass was full.

Draft at the Funkatorium. Pours very dark brown with a fizzy beige head. Tastes like sour cherries, fermenting blackberries, booze, raisin, earthy malt. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like booze, fermenting blackberry, cherry, and earthy malt.

Tap at Funkatorium. Pours opaque black. Aroma is bourbon, oak, vanilla, cherries, and faint caramel. Flavor is rich and sweet with plenty of cherry, vanilla, and oak; light tartness, faint bourbon, and a dry oaky finish. Light/medium body.

Probably the most complex beer I’ve had all year courtesy my Secret Santa. Thanks man. Aroma was nice. Sour cherry and vinegar. Great preamble. Pour was a nice deep dark black with thin light tan film for a head. Taste was delicious. Looking at a black beer like this I wouldn’t expect it to be sour, but it was nicely sour with the vinegar and sour cherry dominating the sip. As it warmed it got more sour, biting on the top sides of the mouth. The finish reveals the light vanilla and bourbon notes. They come up from nowhere and make this beer so interestingly different. Nice strong carbonation. Love it

7.2% ABV bottle into snifter glass, opaque dark brown color with tan lacing. Aroma notes of cherries, dark fruit, vanilla, oak and sour tartness. Taste adds light roast, tart dark cherries, tad cocoa, yeast funk and light earthiness. Light-medium body, low carbonation, soft with lingering oak tart finish. Very fun sipper, glad I have a few bottles.

Dogbrick (9672) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 26, 2015
Sample at the brewpub. Dark brown color with a medium thin off-white head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of cherries, figs and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of tart cherries, oaky vanilla and malt. The finish is moderately sour with a cherry aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

On draft at the brewpub it is. Dark brown with a slight head. The aroma is brandies cherries. The taste is strong sour taste that unfortunately I have not acquired a taste for so this is a biased tasting
