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 Angel’s share. DedicatedToFun (4000) - Santa Monica, California, USA - NOV 6, 2014

Bottle thanks to GT. Pours a very dark brown with small tan head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong caramel, raisin, and oak. Medium moutfeel with nice roasted malt, toffee, caramel, brown sugar, light booze, easy to drink, very nice. WillRunForBeer (2702) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 10, 2014
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. maddmatt639 (331) - Pacifica, California, USA - JUL 27, 2014
No retention and no lacing. Smells of dates, dark fruits and cherry. Tastes of dates, dark fruits and burnt sugar. Sweet aftertaste.

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.
