COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Complexity. Aged for three months in Wild Turkey Bourbon barrels, this luxurious stout has a deep ebony hue and a beautiful mahogany head. The woody, vanilla-like notes imparted by the barrels mingle with aromas of fresh baked bread, toffee, and espresso and envelop the rich chocolate and roasted barley flavors with a fine bourbon character. Our exclusive partnership with Wild Turkey gives Anderson Valley a world class, consistent source of barrelage, allowing our brewers to explore new frontiers in barrel-aged craft beer.

Pours black with a soft creamy mocha head. Aroma is vanilla, roasted malts, brown sugar, chocolate. Taste is chocolate, vanilla, roasted malts, honey, brown sugar. Mouthfeel is somewhat thin with low carbonation. Aftertaste is vanilla and milk chocolate. A bit too thin in the body but otherwise alright.

Svart öl med riktigt brunt skum. Doft: Bourbon, choklad, kola, vanilj, . God doft men för mycket bourbon för mig. Smak: I stort samma som doft. För mycket bourbon för mig här oxå.

Mörk som natten men smakar fruktansvärt mycket bourbon. Man kan ju inte smaka så mycket annat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lite kokos i aromen. Lite lätt i kropp, aningen vattnig. Annars lagom kolsyrad.

Originally had this at 4.4, but I'm all growns up now and know better than to give really high ratings to anything that you don't have to wait in obscene lines once a year for or trade your firstborn for (IP only I don't trust you newbs).

Barwa: ciemna, praktycznie nieprzejrzysta. Piana kremowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, początkowo obfita, ale szybko opadająca. Wysycenie średnie. Aromat: burbon do potęgi! Dla mnie kojarzy się z alkoholem i nutą kokosową. Do tego melanoidyny oraz toffi. Świetnie. [5/5] Smak: alkohol, wspomniany kokos, słodycz oraz ciemne słody (spieczone ciasto, karmel, toffi, czekolada, bardzo lekka paloność). Genialny. Cena / jakość: [5/5] Najlepsze piwo z browaru Anderon Valley, jakie miałem okazję próbować. Poza tym pierwsze leżakowane w beczkach po burbonie, w którym tak odcisnął on swój charakter. Wprawdzie jest nieco mniej stoutowe (praktycznie brak nut palonych i goryczki), ale aromat i wspaniały smak rekompensują to wszystko. Moim zdaniem piwo jest absolutnie genialne i złożone. Można sączyć je spokojnie przez dłuższą chwilę i powoli odkrywać jego warstwy. Dawno nie byłem pod takim wrażeniem. Polecam do kwadratu!!!

@ Havregatan. Flaska från Systembolaget (89:-). Ganska mycket bourbon i både doften och smaken, choklad, vanilj, trä, sötma, len i munnen, medelfyllig. Bourbon i avslutningen.

660ml bottle (Kaisla, Helsinki)
Apple, then super sweet, vanilla sauce. Apart form that, there’s a lovely sweet roast. Body rater thin and fizzy, not what I want from a BA beer at all, this is force carbonate, and that sucks. If this wasn’t faked up so much I’d love it. But it was, so I don’t. The buttery barrel aspect are lovely, but they’ve fucked this up royally. It’s like a soft drink it’s so sweet and fizzy.
