3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
65cl bottle @ Homo Sibaris, served in Snifter. Pours black with a big beige creamy head, very good appearance. The aroma is mostly bourbon, caramel and chocolate notes are present but to a lesser extent. Difficult to tell bourbon from caramel regarding taste, nice chocolate and roasted malts balance the result. Woody aftertaste. Full body, good carbonation. Enjoyable, yet nothing incredible and a bit expensive.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Fidders, labeled simply as "bourbon barrel stout 6.9%" but I assume this is the wild turkey.
Bourbon nose, hints of coffee. Slightly sour, cocoa and bourbon, a bit thin as I suppose is expected given the low ABV. I appreciate the effort to do a BA stout in single-figure ABV, but it doesn’t really come together into anything special.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22nd April 2014
Opaque black - brown beer, tidy tan head. Palate is airy and a little dry. Fine minerally carbonation. Mild dark malts with a light tang. Nice mellow oaky vanilla and mild tangy bourbon. Finishes smooth and dry.l Nice flavours but even at 6.9% feels a bit thin for BBA stout.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2016 22oz bottle poured into a snifter. Lots of chocolate comes through on the aroma with some root beer (sarsaparilla), some oak/wood, and a warm caramel syrup late. There’s a faint nutty note to the aroma too. It’s a very dark, opaque brown beer with a brown head. The head consists of mostly small to medium bubbles and it has a creamy texture to it. It leaves behind a splotchy, micro bubble lace with a thin ring layer remaining atop the beer. A medium sweetness is complemented by a medium light bitterness on the tongue. It’s a rich, malty, medium-full body beer with a light, but zippy carbonation. The texture is on the thin side of creamy, kinda like a flat soda. It finishes with a smooth caramel and nut flavor accompanied by a roasted touch and a mellow bourbon warmth. The aftertaste is mostly a rich dark chocolate which coats the mouth, and lingers for awhile.

Bouquet falls short. Viscous and creamy palate. Solid colour. Could stand to be a bit more bitter.

Beautiful deep black pour, completely opaque even when held to light. Thick head with persistent lacing. Subtle vanilla notes over the malty goodness of this EXCELLENT stout.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft... Pours hazy and black with a small creamy taupe head. The aroma is a marriage of chocolate crème and that signature Wild Turkey fragrance of ripe apples. Medium to full-bodied with active carbonation. The flavors of scorched malts, caramel and 85% dark chocolate bitter-sweetness transform into a roasty, fudgy, toffee and caramel finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Almost black in color, this beer has a medium brown head. The nose is soft, but strong and celebrating of the woody goodness of Wild Turkey barrels. The aroma is very strong up front, but mellows out after either 1) being exposed for more than a few minutes or 2) well, hell… maybe your nose just gets used to its softness. The soft, silky mouthfeel is what really stands out with this beer, more so than the Bourbon flavor. There’s not much to the roasted character of this beer, likely thanks to its aging, and although the Bourbon flavor is soft and easy, there’s no harsh roasted malts (or alcohol - thanks to the style) to hide it. Soft, easy, gentle… clean and clearly WIld Turkey, but without any harshness from roasted malts or alcohol. What a nice treat that’s not in your face… no need to show off too much, guys.
