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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: poured a dark brown in color with orangish brown highlights and a thin head that barely left any lacing sticking to the glass.

S: definitely was able to sniff out the peachy fruit with a good bourbon presence, woody vanilla notes oozing out, hints of tea, caramel and brown sugar sweetness was pretty potent.

T: it had the angels share character for sure which consisted of brown sugar, maple syrup, caramel, a touch of toffee but with great peachy fruit that accentuated the overall flavor and woody vanilla notes. It did have plenty of bourbon barrel booze and mild tea qualities.

M: the brew was medium in body with a low amount of carbonation which had a sweet, semi fruity, boozy, woody and sticky finish.

O: angel share is a tasty beer but have to say that the peaches really take it to the next level. I honestly didn't get any of the brett character though, it's all good it was still damn tasty.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.
