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.

On tap at Barley Brothers in Winnipeg. Absolutely one of the best beers I’ve had at BB. Dark, chocolately, bourbon. Yummy!

Draught @ Taphouse, Copenhagen
Aroma is oaty with bourbon tones, come vanilla and cocoa. Flavour has oat, chocolate, cocoa and vanilla tones. A bit too foamy palate. Balanced, the bourbon fits quite well here even though this is just 6.9%. Feels thin and starts to get a bit sweet towards the end of the glass though.

15 cl. sample glass @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Pours blackish very dark brown with a creamy tanned head. Nose is very sweet, lots of thick bourbon vanilla with sweet liquorish, toffee, molasses and pancake syrup. Taste is thick bourbon vanilla, molasses, toffee, some sweet iron, thick malts, hazelnuts, very sweet coffee. Body is a touch iron-like, thick maple syrup-like. Very simple, very basic, very satisfactory. Lovely simple drink.

650 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown with light head. Aromas of bourbon - just bourbon. Flavors of weak bourbon with light vanilla and coffee. Alcohol on the back end. Kinda like having a coffee with a watered down bourbon. Where’s the stout?

Seabass1964 (28) - Paragould, Arkansas, USA - APR 29, 2014
Tastes of Bourbon, toasted malts, vanilla, cocoa, coffee. Good, but not nearly as robust or complex as other BA Stouts. This could probably be related to the low abv. I could easily have a few of these without the alcohol slowing me down.

bartlebier (3303) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 28, 2014
Tap@Delirium Hoppy Loft Bxl 24/04. Mild and mellow bourbon vanilla sets the aromatic basso continuo against none too astringent wood notes. Creamy butterscotch mid swallows faint coffee for a full-on crowd pleaser. Smooth silky finish. Unilateral and undercomplex in intent, delicious in that intent.
