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.

It pours black with a deep brown head. The is a definitive bourbon aroma that is present. There is a hint of bread malts. There is a toffee taste mixed with bourbon flavoring and espresso. It has a rich texture with an alcohol kick on the palate.

Beautiful dark brown color with nice tall and creamy tan head, the first aroma I felt was the bourbon, then came the coffee and caramel aromas. Creamy texture. In mouth, you immediately feel the chocolate and the roast. A lingering bourbon flavor comes in after a while. Sweet with some bitter notes of dark chocolate. Well-balanced and very drinkable. This was a very pleasant beer.

Bottle. Pours perfectly dark, a beautiful head of foam with reddish, kind of caffe latte notes. Very good appearance. Aroma is not intense but very enjoyable and fresh with coffee and toffee notes. Extremely well-balanced and smooth taste build of fresh coffee, creamy vanilla, brown sugar and indeed, a bourbon feeling! A sweet tone is well countered with a bittereness. Leaves a very pleasant sweet aftertaste, sort of coffee-style. This beer is extremely drinkable, I actually could start my day with a glass of this one!
