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.

mansquito (4110) - Nueva York, New York, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Cityfresh/ Associated, Bushwick growler: Pours black with a small brown head. Arom ais moderate levels of bourbon, vanilla, plenty of milky chocolate, hints of coffee, and lightly roasty malts. Taste is moderately sweet. Subtle, but very well mixed bourbon notes. Pleasantly low carbonation. Nice bourbon flavor mixing with the chocolate. Ridiculously easy and pleasant to drink. My growler was gone in no time.

On tap at Luma. Pours a thick black color with a bit of head. Overpowering bourbon barrel aroma and flavor. Some roasted malt flavors but a little too overpowered.

RedSox2004 (1436) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Pitch black with a one-finger tan head, solid retention and nice lacing. Cocoa and roasted malt aromas give way to a pretty strong bourbon that yields to nothing. Chocolate malt sweetness accompanied by booziness of the bourbon. Hints of vanilla, coffee, and earthiness. Medium body, creamy but slightly watery mouthfeel, minimal carbonation, and a boozy finish.

Aroma is subtle with hints of chocolate. Appearance is black like licorice with a nice tan head. Taste is very soft and malty with hints of chocolate and a little raisin. Leaves a clean after taste.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5523) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2014 Chose this one to mark my 10 year anniversary on Ratebeer and i was not disappointed. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a large creamy dark tan head that left decent lacing. The aroma was a lovely mix of sweet chocolate syrup, malted milk, vanilla and coconut. The flavor was malty and toasty with notes of vanilla, malted milk, chocolate syrup and coconut. Nicely complex yet subtle with no one element overwhelming. Long finish of chocolate, toasty malts and marshmallow. Silky smooth and creamy body. Absolutely lovely.
