Lost Abbey Angel's Share

Another Thursday night for Rich and I to share some American craft beer. Not one of our most exciting Thursday evenings but it did end on a hight note: Angel’s Share – Bourbon Barrel Aged by The Lost Abbey.

This was the last of my 2009 stash of the beer. I have enjoyed each and every bottle of Angel’s Share. Two years of ageing has brought out a bunch of brown sugar and molasses to join the oak and bourbon.

As typical, I wish I had a few more bottles to continue to check in on this beer and see how well it ages. Enjoy!
