Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Formerly known as "Vern". Reviews from 2011 are for the initial pilot batch (Vern) of what would become Track 11 the next year.

A experimental re-mix track, Track 12 is our Angel’s Share that we aged in fresh Heaven Hill Bourbon barrels for 9 months. To this we added some awesome whole peach slivers, black tea, and a splash of Brettanomyces Clausenni to ferment the peaches. The beer has a great peach nose and a long carmelized bourbon finish. One of the most experimental of all the track series beers.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Brown body with the slightest hint of life. A few wisps and a thin collar.

Smell - Bourbon. Caramel. Fruity, not what I'd call peach though. Raisins. Tea, if I really think about it.

Taste - Much fruitier. Stone fruits very strong. Fruity caramel flavor that lingers. Very sweet finish.

Mouthfeel - Sugary and kinda tough to drink. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Not impressive. Very sweet.

A - Brown with maroon accents in a thick and hazy body

S - Nice bourbon notes, light oak, and slight peach sweetness

T - Heavy spice fro the HH bourbon, nice sweetness from the peaches, dark fruit and an oak presence from the barrels. There is also a sweet vanilla that adds a nice layer of complexity and sweetness to it

M - Medium syrupy body with spiciness near the back end

O - The second barreling of the Angel's share adds a lot of bourbon and spice to the beer. The peaches add a nice sweetness to it. Definitely a new layer of complexity to the angels share that I enjoy.

Nearing the end here. Yet another Lost Abbey tick shared by Todd.

A - Minimal white foam settles to a thin partial cap. Murky and turbid brown body.

S - An odd mix of bourbon and black tea, with only a hint of peach. This is the Angel's Share base, you say? Astringent, and quite strange. Sweetness comes a bit out more as it warms up.

T - The taste is significantly better, with more sweet caramel malts from the base beer and less tea. Peaches come through a little more, and there's mild tropical brightness imparted by the brett. Still, largely caramel, oaky vanilla, brown sugar, and so forth here. Alcohol is well-hidden, which is nice.

M - Surprisingly thin, especially when compared directly to Bourbon Angel's Share. Lower carbonation, surprisingly smooth texture, with less tannins than I expected from fruit, tea, oak, and so forth. Again, well-hidden booze.

D - The smell was very strange, and a tad off-putting, but otherwise I enjoyed this for the most part. The tea seems a bit unnecessary.
