COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
What began with our flagship Boont Amber Ale and a passion for experimentation has become a unique addition to our Anderson Valley Wild Turkey Barl Series. The six month aging process in third-use Wild Turkey Bourbon barrels imparts flavors of coconut and vanilla and subtle bourbon aromas that are enhanced by a noticeable oak character in the finish. A great accompaniment to fine meals or to be enjoyed on its own, Boont Barl is a truly sessionable barrel-aged beer with finesse. MALTS: Pale Two-Row, Crystal (40L & 80L) HOPS: Columbus, Bravo, Northern Brewer, Mt. Hood

drowland (7868) - Georgia, USA - JUN 15, 2014
6/15/14. 22oz bottle from 5 Points. BA Amber ale FFS? Oh well, here goes. Amber red pour with a small khaki head (even with a strong pour) that fades and laces a touch. Mild aroma, just hints of bourbon, a nice oak and vanilla aspect, surprisingly, lots of caramel, and an aspect that reminds me of granola or oatmeal in a way. Sweet-ish flavor, lightly nutty, blends surprisingly well with the barrel, which adds mild oak and vanilla on top of caramel and doughiness from the beer. Iím surprised I didnít hate this. Not saying itís amazeballs or anything, but I was ready to hate.

HighlanderOne (1200) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - MAY 30, 2016
On tap at Millstone in Rock Hill. Faint malt vanilla aroma. Dark Amber with lacing. The bourbon flavors (vanilla and wood) blend well with the sweetness of the ale. Also a dry feel. Well done.

Red gold, slightly opaque with a creamy head. Lovely aroma, almost chocolate. Very malty. Thick and satisfying in the mouth, leaves a caramel type aftertaste. Itís a damn good beer.

fletchfighters (1390) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 8, 2015
Nice lower ABV BA beer. Raisin, toffee, burnt sugar, grape, malt, oak and bourbon. Soft in the taste but great feel, very rich and bigger than the ABV leads on

cheap (5216) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2015
tap mad mex. Big & black it seems. Smells a little tart, makes my mouth water. No tartness on taste. Rather more mild than expected. Very little co2. Yes, some whisky in thar. Per haps too much whisky barrel effects.
