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.

A: Oaky. A bit of sweetness and a hint of cherry. A: Pours a very dark redish brown. Head has a hint of black red color. T: Tastes oaky. Cherry note is very subtle. Sourness is good. P: Solid body on the palate. Sourness is great. carbonation is good. Overall this isn’t the best showing of a cherry sour but it’s pretty solid. The oak note comes through more than the cherry note which is the opposite of what I’m looking for. The medium-heavy body also seems a little weird. Not a bad beer: worth checking out.

Dogbrick (9439) - 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

sebletitje (7801) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 31, 2015
Bottle courtesy of Omgrich and shared with the Shape crew. Bottled 2014, 500ml. Brune, col beige. Arôme est fruité noir, rétro apportant un caractère levure aigrelet tirant presque sur un cidre. Retrouve un Bourbon bien, presque trop, présent pour le nez. Palais de barrique qui est bien là donnant pas mal des notes de Bourbon. Retrouve un suret fruité de griotte, cerise noire. Fini est sec et se présente plus en fin de bouche. Le out fonctionne bien même si le côté Bourbon semble parfois reprendre un peu le dessus au détriment du fruité.
