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.

Moebbels (501) - FINLAND - JUL 31, 2015
Shows a pitch black body with virtually no head. Nose has a really heavy dose of bourbon with a somewhat unpleasant note. The taste is fairly sweet with a mellow, mildly bitter finish. Medium carbonation and hefty palate. The bourbon barrel aging really pushes through on the nose and is a bit overwhelming.

Bottle, thanks vjohans. Pours black with a tan head. Taste chocolate, rosted malts, some licorice and bourbon. A bit too thin for all taste.

Malin_aiisa (279) - SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2015
Bottle. Dark almost black, brown head. Aroma coffee, sour oak and bourbon. Taste licorice, bitter, not so sweet, alcoholic taste. Nice, but flat finish, light texture, fizzy.

mbgrayson (628) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - JUL 19, 2015
Pours a nice dark brown, almost black, with a tan head. Aroma of bourbon and wood. Taste is again mostly bourbon and wood. Very little beer taste there. This is decidedly not an ’imperial stout’. I won’t get this one again. Disappointing.

Bottle. Closer to a porter than a stout, I thought. Nice enough though; the bourbon flavour stops short of being overpowering.

Achel (205) - GREECE - JUL 11, 2015

culchiem (3050) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 30, 2015
Bottle at City Beers. Black with a coffee head. Aroma is sweet whiskey malt. Flavour is velvet vanilla, plum, toasted malt with a warm whiskey base, not too boozy. Finish is sweet malt.

This is a very smooth stout that has a soft variation of after tastes. It is easy to drink both with a meal or all by itself.

Unclear black beer with a good beige standing head. Taste is bouban, wood, coffee, caramel, chocolade and some bitter hops.
