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.

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.
