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.

Douberd (2298) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2013
On tap at Van Moll, Eindhoven. Pours an almost black beer with a good sized light beige head, okay retention. Light lacing left on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, bourbon but a bit faint. Nice taste, again bourbon is there but not so strong as a flavour. Roasted and chocolate malts, light bitterness. Medium thick body, good carbonation. Overall okay although I expected a bit more of it.

I’m not a huge fam of this one. Slight hint of chocolate overpowered by the taste of smoky raisins.

Shag (2607) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - OCT 10, 2013
The appearance is brownish black with a beige head. The aroma contains mostly chocolate burbon. The flavor is a bit boozy with some chocolate, vanilla, and coffee. The turkey isnt overwhelming in this one. Overall a good beer.

One of my favorite bourbon barrel stouts. Not high gravity so it is very very smooth. Will get again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Looks and smells great. This is a tasty beer that is chewy and tasty. The right thickness as well. The only complaint is that it’s a little bit in the sweet side. Still, nice.

Bamsen78 (3141) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2013
Draught @ Rattle & Hum, NYC. Pours cloudy very dark brown with small tan head. Dark aroma of malt, caramel and dark chocolate. Sweet flavour of caramel malt and chocolate with notes of roasted coffee beans. Mildly sweet finish with a roasty hint to it. Good. Really good.

pineypower (2509) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Bottle. Pours out black with a small tan head. Aroma is bourbon, oak, vanilla, light chocolate syrup. Taste is very bourbon-forward, vanilla, light honey, some mild chocolate. Body is a bit thin to stand up to the bourbon flavors it imparts.

Imperial_Scout (363) - Illinois, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Pours black with tan head. Nose is of sweet chcolocalte and bourbon. Taste is the same with nice vanilla notes as well. Palate is pretty thin and would be the only negative I could think of. But overall impressed with this beer.

This is a very light bourbon stout. The flavor profile is great. Soft boutbon, unsweetened cocoa. The palate is very thin. Almost watery.

Review for personal use only. Plz disregard. So smooth, very creamy with the perfect amt of bourbon flavor
