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.

Lizardking3 (191) - Springfield, Oregon, USA - MAY 16, 2015
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

650ml bottle at home. Dark brown with a small slightly off-white head. Medium body with low to moderate carbonation. Pretty sweet with subtle bitterness. Caramel, roasted malts, oak, vanilla, brown sugar and spices. A tasty subtle BA brew.

Cervesa amb fort aroma a xocolata, en gust es nota també la xocolata però hi ha el lleuger toc al Bourbon. Cerveza con fuerte aroma a chocolate, en sabor se nota también el chocolate pero hay el ligero toque al Bourbon.

Draught at the Anderson Valley Taproom, Boonville, CA. Black colour with a tiny tan head. Whiskey, mild sweetness, liquorice, medicine and roasted malt in the aroma. Sugary sweetness, whiskey, medicine, toffee and toasted malt in the flavour. Oily. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured into a snifter. 3.25 A: Black color. Just under one finger of frothy light brown head formed, but it fell quite quickly. 3.75 S: The nose on this is very nice, but the focus is definitely on the bourbon instead of the beer. The base offers modest amounts of roastiness, chocolate, and caramel with a touch of ash and butter. The bourbon is leathery, but clean without any sharpness. Touch of nondescript fruitiness, oak, vanilla, and perhaps a hair of peat. 3.25 T: Taste also features the bourbon. Pretty much tastes like the nose, except that the base beer is even more muted. On the drier side without much complexity. 3.0 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. This is really lacking in body and creaminess. It’s not bad, it just isn’t good either. 3.25 D: It’s worth a try I guess, but it’s not something worth revisiting.

procraste (153) - FRANCE - MAY 1, 2015
Pas trop épaisse (voir même liquide et gazeuse / Rafraîchissante), servie un peu trop fraîche. Pour autant, les arômes de bourbon sont déjà très présents sans être désagréable ... équilibrée

Svart färg. Fin krona som lätt drar sig undan. Ton i doft cola & knäck det är bourbonen som härjar. Även såklart rostat kaffe, choklad & vanilj. Väldigt tunn kropp. Även i smak känner jag drick-cola, bourbon, karamell, väldigt mycket grädde i eftersmaken man känner av havre som ligger kvar fint lent på tungan längs. Som att dricka en fin Irish Coffe. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

0,65l fles bij mitra in winkel vandaan. Apart helder met een crème kraag. Smaak en geur, bourbon vierde de boventoon met vanille en op de achtergrond wat koffie met melk... Whah
