Wicked Weed Angel of Darkness

April 7, 2017

I was so incredibly excited to be gifted a couple of bottles of this limited release from Wicked Weed. (Thanks Steve!) It pours a dark red, but looks similar to Coca-Cola in the glass. The nose is very reminiscent of maraschino cherries. This Barrel-Aged American sour has the perfect balance of sour and sweetness. It is blended with 1.5 lbs. per gallon of boysenberries, raspberries, blackberries and cherries aged in sherry casks for 14 months and then blended onto another 3 lbs. per gallon of those fruits in stainless steel tanks for 2 months. I mostly tasted the blackberry and raspberry with a bit of honeydew melon and cola hint as well. The finish does linger in a very pleasant way and with the lower carbonation this is a very smooth drinking sour even at a 10.5% abv. I so wish they released this beer throughout the year, because it would definitely be a staple in my collection.
