Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: scottoale on 08-23-2006

Down in Kentucky and across the pond in Scotland, distillers who age their whiskeys for many years refer to the evaporation of the spirits from their barrels as “The Angel’s Share.” We couldn’t agree more. Each time a barrel is filled, a measure of liquid seeps into the oak and is lost for good.This striking Strong Ale is brewed with copious amounts of Caramel malt to emphasize the vanilla and oak flavors found in freshly emptied bourbon or brandy barrels. The beer spends a year in oak before it is packaged for release.

A - Pours a dark reddish-brown with a small creamy tan head.
S - Smells like dark fruit, like dried raisins and cherries.
T - Definitely boozy but not overwhelming. The alcohol seems to ride on top of the raisin flavor.
M - Medium-thick mouth feel, the flavor hung around until my next sip. No carbonation.
O - Definitely a sipping beer. Wish I had a roaring fire going in the fire place and a good book in hand. I really enjoyed this beer and will buy it again next time I see it. Another excellent beer from Lost Abbey.
