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.

HuskerTan (766) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Bottle. 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.

BlackHaddock (4924) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2015
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.

Lizardking3 (190) - 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

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.
