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.

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

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black with some edge transparency. Small off-white head. Medium collar. Wispy surface.

Smell - Roasted malt. Some vinegar. Oak. Orange citrus, which is weird. A hint of vanilla.

Taste - More cherry. Acetic sourness. Caramel and vanilla. Roasted malt. Bitter coffee malt. Minimal bourbon.

Mouthfeel - Moderate sourness. Balanced roast and sourness and doesn't get too acetic.

Overall - Pretty tasty. Doesn't blend the flavors all that well, but that's my biggest complaint.
