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.

Pours a dark brown with beautiful sour cherry notes in the nose with an ever so subtle bourbon scent. The sour cherries and plums come through in the flavor. A beautiful sour!

Great sampler from the Funkatorium. 6oz pours? 7oz pours? The darkest of the group. Barrel leads. Big cherry, but that is still second behind the barreling. Very nice! 15.3

Boutip (5795) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 15, 2016
Bottle: Poured a dark reddish color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of ground cherry with some tart notes is pretty enticing. Taste is also a mix of ground cherry notes with some tart and sour notes and light oak notes are also perceptible. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. Great beer with good balance between all the flavours.

jesperhammer (4090) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2016
09-JUL-2016, draft @Himmeriget, with Sonni. Black with a lasting tan head. Aroma is cherry and faint Bourbon. Taste the same with red wine, Wood, and a slight roast. But the roast is never too much as in most Black sours I have tried. Tart with a long tart finish. Very nice.

VamboladeTolly (1400) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JUN 29, 2016
Bottle. Thanks Harri. Pours brown (like a liquid chocolate) with broen head. Aroma: sourish, berries, cherry, blackberry, milkchocholate, 2 day old baby shit, hay, roasted malts. Taste: medium sour with some upcoming sweetness, dryed dark plums, cocoa, raw apples, wine notes, oak barrel, Well balanced. Sour-sweetish finish. Nice brew. In summertime you can drink it bottle after bottle.
