Nearly four years ago, we hired some Angels to work their magic on all manners of oak barrels and beers in our barrel program. As Angels go, theyre alright. Sometimes they misplace barrels. Other times, theyre selfish and hide the best barrels. And at least one of these Angels is mischievous from time to time adding grapes to the barrels to see what might happen. Recently, we found some of these "Angels Barrels" which wed lost over time. After tasting them, we decided to marry some of the barrels together creating a time in a bottle snapshot of some of our favorite Angels Share barrels. This Grand Cru bottling has been thoughtfully blended to bridge the first batches with our most recent releases. We hope that you, like us and our Angels, find it worthy of the designation Angels Share Grand Cru.

skmikeg (1826) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2014
Pours murky brown with a thin tan head which quickly fades to no lacing. Aroma is of brandy, rum raisins, dark fruits, cherry, molasses, boozy bourbon, sweet malts, and some oaky notes. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma with a lot of brandy, rum, and bourbon oaky notes. Has a full body with a creamy mouthfeel and a sweet, slightly warming, medium long finish. Overall, a world class barely wine that shows characteristics from all of the different barrels used for Angels share.

Taster at Strong Beer Fest. Pours mahogany with a scant off white head. Smells amazing, like bourbon barrel chocolate covered cherries. Flavor has all of that, finishing with milk chocolate and toasted oak.

bytemesis (8098) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 28, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2014 Tap at the Ale Arsenal 2nd Anniversary. Pours murky chestnut, minimal tan head, a bit of lacing at best. Aroma is vanilla, oak, rum raisin, cocoa, fig, molasses, lots of dark fruits and sugars, plus a boozy note. Flavor is all of that, fully sweet, light bitter, bourbon, cherry. Full body, a bit chalky, pretty flat. Not really digging the mouthfeel, and the flavor became cloying over time. I am not as much as a fan as many others seem to be, but I am glad I got a chance.
