Currently draft only. Recent bottlings have an orange front label.

Down in Kentucky and across the pond in Scotland, distillers who age their whiskeys for many years refer to the evaporation of the spirits from their barrels as The Angels Share. We couldnt agree more. Our Angels Share is a barrel aged burgundy colored ale infused with copious amounts of dark caramel malt to emphasize the vanilla and oak flavors found in freshly emptied brandy barrels. Each batch spends no less than 6 months aging in the oak. The beer is available in 750 ml bottles and on draft at inspired locations.

2010 ABV: 11.5% 375ml Bottling stamp on neck says 2010 but was released in Jan 2011. It is called the 2011 Angels Share Brandy.
2009 ABV: 11.5%, 375 mL
2008 ABV: 12.5%, gold lettering, 750ml and 375ml, with 2008 on label
2007 ABV: 11.5%, gold lettering, 750ml only
2006 ABV: 10.5%, black lettering, 750ml only

Vignale (3500) - Malm, SWEDEN - JAN 4, 2017
Flaska frn Craftbeer/Galatea. Ingen kolsyra eller skum. Stor st doft av romrussin, fat, bourbon, marsipan, vanlij och torkad frukt. Lite platt munknsla trots riktigt stor kropp. Smaker som doften, bra balans men en lite vass smak i avslutningen. Knns inte 100%-ig men trots det r det riktigt bra. Men man blir nd besviken.

Linnet (1753) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - DEC 24, 2016
Insanely oaky, raisins, leather, slightly boozy, vanilla, toffee, light coffee, rich yet velvety smooth. Murky Brown colour, small beige head. Heavy sweet, salty, lightly bitter, very warming, raisins, figs, oaky, vanilla, caramel, light notes of coffee. Fullbodied, soft velvety carbonation, oily feel, long complex Woody finish. Sublime!

2011 vintage with the orange label purchased at Julios Liquors God knows when. Neck reads 2010 Brandy. Meant to get to this sooner, now is the right time. (Thank god this isnt the infected vintage)Nose shows me deep dark fruit, vanilla and oak. Brandy is mild at this point

Taste is again heavy on the dark fruits (raisin, plum, dates) some sticky sweet caramel with hints of vanilla. The finish shows oak. Mouthfeel is nearly full with carbonation on the lower side. Wow... Really wow. It is like liquid Brandy candy. This stands the test of time. I had the bourbon barrel on draft and this is just as impressive.

anstei (1460) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - OCT 22, 2016
Bottle from Erzbierschof Zurich, 2011 vintage with 2010 shoulder print. Pours clear dark brown with almost no head. Intense brandy barrel indeed. Vanilla, wood, oak, some booze. Works well together though. Full and but not heavy body with almost no carbonation. Almost no bitterness, but sweet, almost a bit sticky, and some sourness. From the age maybe? Anyway, the booze is warming nicely as well done barley wines often do. Rather short palate, but it works. Good beer.

2009 bottle, courtesy of jamesy -- cheers! It has all of the tastes and smells of a 7 year old barley wine; its slightly oxidized, malt-forward, and completely flat. But the flavors had melded together beautifully, with the malt sweetness mellowing a lot and no booze heat at all. Someone I was drinking it with started calling it "Jack Johnson" because its so mellow. I cant say I disagree.

DiarmaidBHK (4429) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2016
Draft at Row 34. Pours black with a khaki head. Doesn't leave much lacing in the glass. Big bourbon notes on the nose. Lots of bourbon on the tongue. Hides it's booze well. Finished clean. Nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
