The Bourbon of choice for Hunter S. Thompson and David Foster Wallace, Wild Turkey is known for its burn. It wouldn’t be my first choice in whiskey for a barrel-aged Stout, but Anderson Valley has made a surprisingly smooth brew with it. In fact, this Stout is more mild than many other barrel-aged dark ales. Rich barley, subtle vanilla, and cocoa are the most prominent smells and flavors. While you do notice the alcohol, it’s tucked nicely under the malt and oak tones. I’d like a slightly fuller mouthfeel, but otherwise, Wild Turkey Bourbon Barrel Stout leaves little to complain about.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A- Bourbon, booze, roasty, smoke, woody, cherries, cocoa.
A- Black color, black liquid, light brown head.
T- Bourbon, boozy, wood, cherries, dark fruits, cocoa.
P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, smooth finish.
O- I couldn’t believe this wasn’t an imperial stout when reading the label. After the first sip I was even more confused. It tasted like a barleywine or imperial stout with the booze and dark cherries but yet felt as light as a wheat beer. This was well balanced and felt right in all the best places.

25th May 2015: on-tap US pint during Happy Hour at the Yard House, Irvine. Served a bit too cold, but as it warmed a little the aroma and flavours burst forth. Black bodied with a tanned foam on top. Bourbon esters in the malty nose, Bourbon hints in the malty flavour: semi-sweet as it warms. A tad thin body wise but flavoursome and interesting.

Tap at toronados in San Francisco with commonmac and rosskyle and wildcard. Black with small tan head. Sweet nose with dark fruit. Taste is sweet and sour more than expected from a stout. Not creamy. Can taste those bourbon elements, only a little stout. Interesting and good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tons of bourbon on the nose. Chocolate, coconut vanilla, wood. Taste is fantastic, big bourbon flavors and rich stout. Only thing I wish is the mouth feel was bigger. This is a small stout, but big flavor punch
