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.

yngwie (14762) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 3, 2013
Bottle, 22oz. A beer pouring a dark brown to black body, topped by a small, dense, light beig head. The aroma is lightly vanilla-ish, with dried fruits, roasted malts, cocoa and molasses. Pretty much the same in the flavor, along with some more bitterness, A decent one, but overall too one-dimensional. Well worth a revisit though. 130803

Had a pint on tap at the Church Key SF. Solid, doesn’t beat you over the head with bourbon, alcohol or sweetness. Delicious

Nische (1015) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - AUG 1, 2013
Pours black with enormous, long lasting tan head. Raisins, vanilla and cherry in both aroma and taste together with dark chocolate and roasted malt. Some sourness to the taste. A little bit thin bodied.

Lots of waxy oak in botht he aroma and flavor. REally takes on the barrel in the flavor but isn’t too harsh or boozy.

22oz bomber from Spirits Middletown. Poured a bit of thinner deep dark brown almost blackish brown with an average sized foamy solid beige head. Aroma is solid, originally reminded me of a White Russian or alcoholic chocolate milk, additional notes of burnt toast, charcoal, chocolate syrup and some vanilla extract. Body is a bit thinner with average to strong foamy carbonation and a touch of heat that lingers on the back end. Flavor of chocolate milk, bourbon, vanilla extract, wood, sand. Solid beer but body is a touch thin.

onceblind (5147) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Black pour with a generous rocky/foamy khaki head. Aroma starts with a firm bourbon note with sticky molasses, wood, and stout roastiness. Flavor is scrumptious with sweet dark chocolate, woody bourbon with an inherent touch of vanilla, and a wee syrupy tone of molasses. Ends bourbony and roasty chocolaty. Pretty swell and calm enough in booziness to take down a bomber solo while still being sippable.

Bottle @ WWT III. Very dark brown colour, tan head. Nose is roasted malts, coffee, bourbon and vanilla. Flavour is roasted malts, coffee, lots of roastiness, and bourbon and vanilla, not too overpowering. Finish is roasty. A bit light bodied.
