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.

On-tap at Pizza Port OB.
Pours a dark murky brown with a light tanish off white head that laces the glass nicely. The nose is big of bourbon, oack, raisins, dates, dark fruit and vanilla. The taste is a big hit of bourbon, raisins, toffee, dates, oak, canilla and a strong alcohol presence with a slight burntness. It's got a creamy feel withe a fairly thick body and good carbonation. This is a very enjoyable beer for me, however if you don't like bourbon this definitly isn't the beer for you.
