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.

Had this from growler with Erik and James for our business meet. This was a very good stout with a slight note of bourbon. Good coffee aroma and taste.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Bottle. Aroma has notes of smokey roasted malts, espresso, peat, wood and a slight bourbon note on the finish. Black hue with an average off-white head that left very good lace. Flavor is medium sweet and bitter. Palate is full bodied and watery soft. Overall a very tasty stout that really showed the stout flavors upfront and the bourbon playing second fiddle. Enjoyed it but kind of wanted a bigger mouth-feel. Should have been a RIS but itís really good for what it is.

Pours almost black with a heavy beige head. Smells of good old bourbon whiskey! A splash of coffee and chocolate as well. Tastes sweet. Has a whiskey flavor without the alcohol burn. Very smooth as well. Tasty.

Cirrhosis (1271) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 15, 2013
Deep chocolate brown with a massive tan cap, looks perty. Couldnít wait to smell needed to drink and the drink was good. Really hit big bourbon notes in the nose, all sorts of chocolate, and what I call cream cheese. Aroma is a pure desert. Taste is good, light, and highly drinkable. Chocolate, mild bitterness, big sweetness. Bourbon is perfect in this adding just the right amount of vanilla and booze. Never had such a small (6.9%) barrel aged brew before. Drinking this to fast!! Dam you mystery cream cheese flavor donít know what you are and I donít know what else i can call it. I like this beer.

CapFlu (4857) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 14, 2013
22 oz bottle. Purchased at Spinnakers Liquor in James Bay. Pours a quick dissipating light brown foamy head atop an opaque body. Nose of vanilla, wood and bourbon. The flavour and palate is somewhat thin but it's nicely balanced and basic. Good.

Not a bad beer but being from kentucky I am not really a fan of wild turkey and I donít quite care for these bouron undertones.

Douberd (3441) - 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.

Shag (2714) - 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
