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 tap. Half finger head with nice lacing. Smells amazingly like butterscotch! Holy cow. Spot on butterscotch. Thick body, light licorice, buttery, little bourbon, and creamy.

DavoleBomb (1513) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2015
Poured into a snifter. 3.25 A: Black color. Just under one finger of frothy light brown head formed, but it fell quite quickly. 3.75 S: The nose on this is very nice, but the focus is definitely on the bourbon instead of the beer. The base offers modest amounts of roastiness, chocolate, and caramel with a touch of ash and butter. The bourbon is leathery, but clean without any sharpness. Touch of nondescript fruitiness, oak, vanilla, and perhaps a hair of peat. 3.25 T: Taste also features the bourbon. Pretty much tastes like the nose, except that the base beer is even more muted. On the drier side without much complexity. 3.0 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. This is really lacking in body and creaminess. It’s not bad, it just isn’t good either. 3.25 D: It’s worth a try I guess, but it’s not something worth revisiting.

procraste (100) - FRANCE - MAY 1, 2015
Pas trop épaisse (voir même liquide et gazeuse / Rafraîchissante), servie un peu trop fraîche. Pour autant, les arômes de bourbon sont déjà très présents sans être désagréable ... équilibrée

Svart färg. Fin krona som lätt drar sig undan. Ton i doft cola & knäck det är bourbonen som härjar. Även såklart rostat kaffe, choklad & vanilj. Väldigt tunn kropp. Även i smak känner jag drick-cola, bourbon, karamell, väldigt mycket grädde i eftersmaken man känner av havre som ligger kvar fint lent på tungan längs. Som att dricka en fin Irish Coffe. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

0,65l fles bij mitra in winkel vandaan. Apart helder met een crème kraag. Smaak en geur, bourbon vierde de boventoon met vanille en op de achtergrond wat koffie met melk... Whah

앤더슨 밸리 브루어리-와일& 터키 버본 베럴 스타우트 6.9% ABV 대단히 촘촘하고 크리미한 폼이 높게 치솟아 마치 커피맛 케이크 조각을 먹는 듯한 탑, 위스키향이 길게 피어오르며 솟으나 지나치지 않다. 거품으로 감동받은 첫번째 맥주. 바닐라향, 나뭇내. 독하지 않아 베럴에이징 비어 입문용으로 적절할 듯 싶다. 와일드 터키 위스키 베럴에 에이징을 시켰다고 한다 https://twitter.com/MaekJuBot

On tap at Zeitgeist. Roasty vanilla aroma. Awesome smooth roasty toasted marshmallow taste. A fun change having a rich bourbon barrel stout that’s NOT imperial.

chuckstout (308) - Washington, USA - APR 18, 2015
Chocolate, espresso, and vanilla in the nose, pours with deep black with mocha colored head and good lacing. Nice viscosity, creamy, oily mouthfeel, with a rich character of dark chocolate, espresso, roast,burnt sugar, vanilla, and bourbon. A damn fine ale. Would be nice to see this at 10-12% to add some yeast and alcohol driven complexity.
