Wicked Weed Chocolate Covered Black Angel first appeared as a last minute surprise when the Asheville, North Carolina brewery released Angel of Darkness in December of 2015. The beer was just a blip on the radar for many, as the release was extremely limited.
Good news. This bit of dessert beer goodness is back in action – on sale now at the brewery once again.
Chocolate Covered Black Angel is a spin on the brewery’s Black Angel, a bourbon barrel-aged dark sour/wild ale, featuring extra Montmorency cherries, plus 100 pounds of cocoa nibs from local chocolatier, French Broad.
Chocolate covered Black Angel is our sour aged in Kentucky bourbon barrels. After the beer rest in barrels, we then blend into steel tanks with over 2 pounds per gallon of tart Montmorency cherries and copious amounts of Honduran cacao nibs from French Broad chocolates.
Wicked Weed Chocolate Covered Black Angel is everything you love about Black Angel, plus the added richness of cocoa. When we say decadent, we mean it. Each sip finds vanilla bourbon oak dancing with the chocolatey flavors, finishing slightly tart, thanks to that hefty dose of cherries. Love poems n to included.
Those seeking Wicked Weed Chocolate Covered Black Angel will find 500 milliliter bottles waiting for you at the brewery in Asheville. Go now.
