A Note on This Beer
Today's offering is a special holiday treat…
...it’s literally the only chance to get The Lost Abbey’s Scotch Barrel-Aged Angel’s Share Barleywine aside from trekking to the brewery’s California taproom!
This is a brand new version of the cult favorite, Angel’s Share -- otherwise known as the #12 Ranked American Strong Ale in the World. And there’s no guarantee this collector’s item will come around again next year.
Sure, showing up to a holiday party dressed to impress is great, but picture yourself showing up with this elegant, nearly impossible-to-find brew. Introducing it will give you instant craft beer cred -- no one will even notice that you’re wearing a tuxedo t-shirt under your dinner jacket!
Since the brewery’s top-rated Barrel-Aged offerings are complex and labor intensive, new releases like today’s are like a dream come true for craft aficionados. This boozy brew was aged in Scotch barrels for 18 months, lending a drying note of powdered cocoa to the decadent 14% ABV base of caramel, oak, toffee, and dark fruit flavors.
One taste of Scotch Barrel-Aged Angel’s Share and you’ll understand why The Lost Abbey has won 8 GABF medals for their barrel-aged gems. But don’t let the party guests drink up your entire stash -- snag an extra-special-secret bottle to cellar away ‘til next year’s festivities!
