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.

Bouteille: Literally black, big creamy tanned head; moderate to solid nose of vanilla and roasted malt plus bitter chocolate and traces of chocolate cakes; moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied and very soft; vanilla, wood, chocolate and caramel in the smooth finish. A gorgeous liquid chocolate cake…

Dark black pour creamy off white lacing head. Aroma is toasty. Taste is silk smooth with a touch of bourbon and chocolate. Alcohol bourbon taste lives on palate.

markwise (4898) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 3, 2015
Bottle from Beer Frog Spring Hill. Pours a stout brown with an off-tan head. Nose is some chocolate, some boozy whiskey, some earth, and some almost cola flavor. Flavor hits with chocolate, soda, some boozy bourbon, and a hint of earth. Light in body and lingering boozy bourbon into the finish.

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.

finol (2646) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2015
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 (398) - 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 (649) - 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.
