Notes / Commercial Description:
Angel of Darkness is a barrel-aged American sour. This ale is blended with 1.5 pounds per gallon of boysenberries, blackberries, raspberries, and cherries and aged in Oloroso sherry casks. After 14 months of aging in these flavor-intense barrels, the beer is blended onto another 1.5 pound per gallon of these dark fruits in stainless steel tanks for 2 months. A total of 3 tons of fruit and 16 months of maturation later, we give you Angel of Darkness.

Holy berries. Tasted from bottle. Lots of raspberry and blackberries. Don’t get much cherry. Nice and tart but not overly sour. Excellent sour.

From a cask at the 2018 ACAF (Atlanta Cask Ale Festival).

Pungent aroma. This is a strongly flavored sour that is highly sour but not funky. Nice ripe, pitted fruit notes.
Potent.

Bottle at share. Amber, ruby color with small bubbly head. Big fruity aroma, jelly jar, yeasty funk. Taste is more of the same fruity flavors, apples and cherries, berries, sweet and tart. Nice fell with a bit of stickiness.

Draft at the Funkatorium a vintage 2015 pour.

Appearance - A dark red with a off white half finger of thin head. Light lacing down the glass.

Smell- Super sour sweetness with an unbelievable amount of tart fruit. Sherry, cherry, and raspberry explosion then a nice kick of alcohol.

Taste- A monster tart mix of fruit and alcohol. You would never guess this was an 11% abv brew. Such a phenomenal mix of everything. The berries are dominant but the tartness shines through.

Mouthfeel- medium to high carbonation that helps make this so drinkable. A nice dry finish.

Overall- One of the best sours I have ever had. The fruits and tartness mix with a strong abv to form a fantastic sour beer.

Wow! Great carbonization. Flavor is amazing. Hint of sweetness. Good lacing. Alcohol taste, but not too over powering.
