COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Countbeer (6592) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2017
Bottle: Thanks Andrew: 7.2 ABV: Served in a Chouffe glass: Creamy beige head. Deep and dark, almost black body. The aroma is very well balanced and nothing of the different aromas that make the big aromas (your nose hit) is doninating or strongly present:subtle red fruit (specially cherries), some earthy tints, wood, light funk, some bourbon, bit like Belgian Oud Bruin... Flavour is a good balanced tart and (red) fruity piece of art. Fine bourbon tones with some funk, dark fruit, light vinous/vanilla, wild bacteria, wood... Very tasty! Aftertaste is fine malty, fruity funk, wood, light bourbon tint... Good... Low carbo, creamy tart mouthfeel, more than just medium bodied. Very good balanced, lot of stuff happening in both aroma and flavour. Tasty stuff! Well done!

koleminer20 (3470) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JAN 21, 2017
Shared with ebone1988 and Gus at Gus’ Birthday V1 and The Topaz Turns 100k Spaghettogether. 500 mL bottle, batch 1. The pour is a dark blackish red color with a thin ring of light khaki head that vanishes quickly without any lace. The aroma is good. There is a lovely tart cherry happening with a hint of bourbon and a very robust charred oak. The flavor is just as good. There is a nice tartness, but the robust malts and charred oak really balance out nicely. The mouth feel is lighter and crisp with a soft carbonation and a lingeringly complex tart fruit, sweet charred oak, and lovely robustness that I really like. This is awesome.
