Angel Share pours flat black into the glass. Dark brown edges when held to the light. No carbonation or head is present. Reminds me of a cold cup of coffee.

The aroma more than makes up for the flat appearance. Lots of oak, vanilla, bourbon, dark fruit and alcohol.

This full bodied beer is very smooth and silky with an oily feel on the palate. The flavor is full of oak, vanilla, chocolate, ripe fruit, bourbon and a touch of smoke. As it warms some maple notes come out. It finishes oaky and leaves behind flavors of vanilla, bourbon and oak.

This is an intense, full flavored beer that's easy to drink. It needs more carbonation, but otherwise what a great beer!
