Notes/Commercial Description:
Cherry pie! Cherry pie! Cherry pie! This light and fruity ale is black in color, though your palate would never know it. Black Angel is fermented on the Wicked Wild yeast and then moved into stripped down Four Roses bourbon barrels and aged on tart cherries, sweet cherries, and Italian plums. The white oak and roast malt add notes of vanilla and graham cracker that, when blended with the tart sweetness of the fruit, bring out a robust cherry pie flavor.

Poured into a teku, dark reddish brown, no light can get through with a wispy off white head. Smells like a sour, that phenolic alcohol smell underlined with cherries and plum. Huge pop of taste up front, sour cherries and then it just fades away. Don't get much or any of the bourbon flavor. Maybe it did it's work to mellow out the flavors. Doesn't linger at all. Maybe a bit of oak that dries out your mouth. This really wants you to keep drinking it.
