2009 bottle purchased at Greens on Ponce. pours a deep burnt red with a very small off white head - which fades quickly to nothing. big bourbon nose with layers of vanilla, oak and dark fruits, mainly raisins and red grapes. medium body - very smooth and filled with flavors of bourbon, oak, vanilla, raisin, plum, apple, caramel and more. sweet & delicious. smooth all around. some heat on the finish - but not too much - it sits just right over the back of the mouth, melded with the dark fruit tones and sweet malts. this doesn’t suck - although a bit too pricey for the bottle size.

500ml bottle. Darker amber pour with small white head. Nose is sweet, bourbon, vanilla. Flavor is great bourbon flavors, caramel, allot of vanilla. Bourbon flavors last for a while in the finish. Slight alcoholic finish in the end but not as bad as you would think considering the ABV. Great beer. mixmasterob (1058) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 13, 2011
The cork came off with a bang, then the bottle gushed. I probably lost a small pour, total bummer. What made it into my glass was a dark brown clear viscous brew with a small fizzy head that faded quickly. Smelled outstanding. Big yet super smooth bourbon notes, light malty sweetness, then some vinous booze notes. Flavors were bourbon rich from top to bottom, very nice indeed. Sweet malts, light wood and some vanilla too. Well done in every way. Carbonation was somewhat fizzy and big but settled in nicely. The finish was a bit hot but expected. Great but I remember being more "wowed" by Angel’s Share even without any carbonation. alexsdad06 (10578) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - FEB 13, 2011
500 ml bottle shared by Tmoney99 (2009 vintage). Pours a dark reddish copper color with a small beige ring; not much carbonation. The aroma is about what I would have expected: rich caramel, bourbon, vanilla, wood, some ripe fruits, and perhaps a touch of brown sugar. There was some booze, but I expected more. The flavor was much of the same: sweet caramel, vanilla, bourbon, wood and ripe fruits. Again, the booze works with this. Medium-full to full bodied, smooth. I wish I could try the 2007 batch for a comparison. Juelze (1146) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 12, 2011
Pours a rich amber color. Aroma is intense bourbon notes: vanilla, charred wood, caramel and toffee. Taste is much the same on this bad boy. Light carbonation and easily drinkable. Thanks for sharing bro!.

500mL bottle, pours dark mahogany with small tan head. Intense aroma of bourbon, dark dried fruits (figs, dates), treacle/toffee and slight burnt caramel. Flavour initially reveals the treacle/toffee and burnt caramel, and follows with bourbon, oak, vanilla and light molasses. Slight alcohol burnt, but very well incorporate for the ABV (13.16%). An exceptional treat. Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 7, 2011
Pours deep mahogany with a thin off-white head. The nose is tobacco, dark fruits, wood and bourbon. The taste is caramel, candied fruits, vanilla and sweet bourbon. Medium bodied. Tasty stuff. EricE (1367) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 6, 2011
Really nice bourbon here. Strong, yet mellow and creamy bourbon aroma. Very smooth flavor. Creamy with vanilla, slight molasses and malt flavor. Bitter finish. Good and easy to drink. Hides the alcohol extremely well. Gription79 (2891) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - FEB 6, 2011
Translucent brown with off white head. The aroma was filled with bourbon, soft malts, and alcohol. The bourbon flavor complimented the sweetness from the malts. This was a great tasting beer. AcctError65545 (1547) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - FEB 5, 2011
Pours a brownish color with a nice off white head. Aroma is bourbon, caramel, oak, faded hops, oak, tannins. Flavor is caramel, bourbon, faded hops, oxidation, layers of oaky compexity. Well executed, and what angels share should have been the last couple of years.
