Wonderful! My husband and I just opened this 2010 bottle after a tough day taking inventory of our beers. We decided on Angels Share because it was the right size for just the two of us. Pours dark reddish burgandy. Rim of very light lacing. Wonderful, heady intense aroma including bourbon, brandy, raisins, other fruits. Taste is magnificient with brandy, raisins, and chocolate. Intense sense of warmth. My husband says it tastes like an alcoholic chocolate bar. Very smooth.
