BEER INFO

Brewed by:
The Lost Abbey
California, United States
lostabbey.com

Style: American Barleywine

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 12.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

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.

T-Mirrors smell, huge peach and tea flavors, currant fruits, bourbon raisons, vanilla, sweet and tart.
M- Feels thin at first but its not, thick syrup feel, with little to no carbonation.
