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.

On the Fourth Day of Christmas 2013 the beer gods gave to me . . . a disappointing bourbon stout. Pours a dark brown color with thick creamy caramel colored head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, slight roast, and booze. Sweet creamy roasty caramel taste with chocolate notes on the backend. But . . . The mouthfeel I say too thin. It has no traction, which gives the complex flavors a synthetic feel. Like abstract was used.

Pours deep dark with a tan head, the aroma is vanilla and bourbon, taste is vanilla, malt, bourbon, coffee, some sweetness, the body is light (unexpected) and relatively thin mouth feel, carbonation is smooth ends with a sweet feel and relatively warm alcohol given it’s a 6.9 abv

Bomber shared. Pours a dark brown with a coffee colored head. Much lacing on the glass. The aroma is complex in as such you get the bourbon, roasted malts, hints of vanilla and some woodiness. The flavor and mouth feel are incredible. You almost expect to start chewing on this and it quietly disappears. A very smooth bourbon flavor with vanilla notes, roasted malts. Maybe some toffee or something like that. Overall a very solid beer that is very well made.

DocJitsu (1688) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Pours a very dark brown with a perfectly formed taupe head. Mildly smoky coffee nose. Pretty usual stout aromas. Mildly creamy and lightly scrubby texture. A soft bourbon flavor and coffee, with a short-lived, sweet vanilla that gives way to light sourwood.

Jimsal27 (291) - New York, USA - DEC 7, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2014 Poured black with aromas of bourbon and coffee. Taste follows nose but with a subtle sweetness. Flavor of bourbon and coffee really comes through but not overpowering. Reminds me of a mellowed out version of bourbon county stout. Really good barrel aged stout. Will drink again.

This is definitely a unique stout. Aromas of chocolate and sweet cream. Sweet flavors come through first, milk chocolate, caramelized sugar, and toffee. Then breads, roasted nuts, raisins, brown sugar and whiskey. Vanilla aftertaste. Smooth, though lighter bodied than I’d like.

22oz bomber. Pours black with a long lasting tan head. Whiskey and roast chocolate aromas. Chocolate vanilla oak and spicy flavors. Finishes well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma Is alcohol, bourbon. Beautiful looking beer. Taste is mostly Smokey bourbon. Also some barley, coffee, pecans, . Maybe too much whiskey flavor.....not enough stout. Good beer nevertheless.
