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.

Piwo ma ładną beżową, drobno-pęcherzykową pianę, która jednak szybko zupełnie zanika. Barwa czarna, z rubinowymi prześwitami. Aromat w pierwszej chwili wydawał się niezbyt intensywny, ale jestem przekonany, że to wpływ pubu. Po opróżnieniu szklanki do połowy czujemy słodkie suszone śliwki, delikatne nuty palone i kawowe. Już po pierwszym łyku wiemy, że mamy do czynienia z piwem wyjątkowym! Bourbon Barrel Stout co chwilę coś przed nami odkrywa. Początek to znowu suszone śliwki, słodka czekolada i bardzo delikatne nuty palone. Końcówka to bardzo delikatne nuty wanilii pochodzące zapewne od beczki i delikatne rozgrzewanie alkoholowe. Piwo bardzo pełne, gładkie i niezwykle pijalne. Próbowane w spokojniejszym miejscu pewnie odkryłoby przed nami jeszcze więcej.

A nice brew. Aroma is coconut, chocolate, roast and bourbon. Taste is full of figs, prunes, roasted flavors, chocolate, coconut, and barrel notes. Lots going on here. Biggest complaint for me is the watery consistency of the brew. Overall I think it’s great though.

On tap at the Yard House. You can smell the bourbon in the aroma along with chocolate. Great roasted black malt taste with a light boozy kick from the Wild Turkey barrel. The alcohol is a little low for this, but the body is lighter so it’s kind of light overall. Great wood aged stout.

500 ml or so bottle at home. Pours dark brown with a decent light beige head. Aroma is nice and subtle vanilla, bourbon and some oak, milk chocolate as well... Light body, nice vanilla flavours, cold ligt coffee, aftertaste of mocca (?). Allbeit very watery though. The body & taste are inferior to the aroma...

Bottle: clear, dense, medium head but poor lace. Lifted cocoa and vanilla. Medium intensity. Dry, not sour and low bitterness. The palate is reasonably fresh and balanced but lacks the weight and flavor I expected from a barrel ages stout.

MY 500th RATING! 22 oz. bomber. Pitch black with a tan head that laces the glass nicely and hangs around for a bit. Aroma is bourbon (duh) and caramel, maybe vanilla. Unlike a lot of bourbon beers, this one isn’t overly sweet, and it goes down very smoothly. Nicely done.

Excellent Stout. Very wine aroma and taste. Feels prunes and oak tones. Partly acidity adds fullness of taste. Very Well.

I have a soft spot for bourbon barrel beers. This is a nice one. Very good flavor, not over the top and heavy so you can sit down and really enjoy it without too much buzz. Nice vanilla notes, touch of bourbon. Good beer.

Sweet roasted aromas. Very dark with a thin head. The flavor starts off roasted then the woody barrel carries it a smooth bourbon finish. The sweetness is kept in control and it finishes perfectly.
