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.

Maple and bourbon. Alcohol. Barrel aging isn't overpowering, which is nice, but palate is pretty thin. Pretty good, but needs improvement.

AWISLguy (2535) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Bomber from Woodmans in Waukesha. Cellar aged 6 months. Had to have a BA brew to celebrate picking up a BA Speedway! Pours oily black with a tannish-brown head leaving some nice streaks of lace. Aroma has molasses, caramel, vanilla and some coffee. Very nice! Taste is of sweet vanilla, light toffee, some roast and rum raisin. Actually a bit watery, finally making me believe it is not an imperial stout, despite the barrel aging - and confirming the Anderson Valley-ness of this. Medium bodied with a bit of alcohol presence. Finishes mostly sweet, from the vanilla/barrel, but not overwhelmingly. This is a solid, great smelling brew, that needs more body.

Bomber, thanks sevenhokie! Weak bourbon and vanilla aroma with notes of chocolate. Pours black with a thin mocha head and very little lacing. Bourbon and vanilla flavors that meld with a little bit of chocolate. Finishes smooth with more of the chocolate coming through and lingering on palate at the end. Lacks the rich mouthfeel of most bourbon barrel stouts, but still pretty tasty.

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

Pours pitch black with a smooth head. Aroma of roasted malts, hints of vanilla, wood and oak. Taste is smooth, sweet and heavy on vanilla oaky notes. Finish is smooth with some vanilla and cocoa powder. Okay.
