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.

29-JUN-2013, bottle @Yespr tasting. Dark brown with low light brown head. Bourbon aroma with vanilla. Taste mostly the same. Some malty elements as well like chocolate but mostly just bourbon. Medium body, soft carbonation. Fine stout- Perhaps a little too bourbon infused.

This has been in my frig for several weeks now and I’ve been avoiding it since I’m pretty sure what I’m in for once I open it (nothin’ but booze and bourbon). But if I wait any longer this expensive low ABV barrel aged bottle will likely turn on me. So here goes. This 22oz bomber pours with a dark mahogany body supporting a decent enough looking tan head of foam. The aroma offers up vanilla and coconut as well as a bit of toffee and molasses before bourbon and a sliver of boozy heat takes over toward the end of the draw. The taste begins with firm boozy bourbon notes and thin sweet vanilla before it grows into more and more cheap bourbon, faint malt roastiness and then a mix of coconut and vanilla. This has so much bourbon it seems like a fortified beer. Not a big fan of these beers where the barrel character has nearly washed away all of the beer. I mean, what’s the point.

bomber split with the wife for a mid afternoon pick me up. pours jet black with a foam based light tan head that reduces into nothingness. nose has the smokey bourbon base. taste adds elements of vanilla, black malt, liqorice with a quick bitch slap of bourbon on the lingering finish.

Pour is nearly pitch black with a fluffy khaki head. Nice bourbony nose, definitely not overpowering, there’s some oak and vanilla, milk chocolate, roasted coffee, and nice bready notes too. Very light taste to it, kind of disappointing, some nice vanilla and oak up front, light coffee notes, toffee, toasted malt, and a trace bourbon character there. Very thin almost watery taste, and I’ve had multiple bottles of it. Finishes very quickly. Disappointed here, I would have thought the barrel aging would add MORE to it, not take away from the beer.
