4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured into tulip from 22oz bottle. Aroma was dark fruits, raisins and dates, a little plum. Taste was roasted malts, earthy, dark fruits and a little chocolate. The Wild Turkey came on in the finish and was the aftertaste. Most of these barrel beers I taste seem to have a bit of the whiskey flavor but the finish of this one was pure whiskey. I loved this one, and I think it was my favorite bourbon beer yet.

Old rating, pretty good beer not a great BA beer though. Coffee and roast from the stout. Vanilla and hear from the barrel. Decently balanced. No pop. Guy at liquor store tried to offer me this up as a replacement for KBS. Ha.

Sweet and flavorful. You can definitely tell it was aged in Wild Turkey barrels. Strong by separate Stout and Bourbon flavors. Overall very good.

There is a mild smell of bourbon ini the nose. Otherwise innocent in the aroma. The mouthfeel of the beer is excellent, lots of maltiness. The taste has strong notes of vanilla and is a little plain otherwise.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Wild Turkey barrel aged stout with opaque black colour under a medium thick, creamy, tan, lacing head with good retention. Perfumey, sweet and liqueurish aroma of cappuccino, pancakes, meat broth, marzipan, walnuts, nougat, raisins, banana, chocolate sauce, bourbon, big vanilla-like tannins, kahlua of coffee liqueur, rose petals, marmelade, mint, home made caramel, burning pipe tobacco, mocha ice cream. Taste begins with dried fruits, less sweet than expected actually, minerally with medium carbonation, candied orange touch, becoming sweeter as it progresses, slick and oily body (not very thick), syrupy malt sweetness, very caramelly and chocolatey, smooth and creamy, spreading widely over the tongue like a very liquid chocolate sauce; finish has a gentle roasted bitterness, a bit coffee-like but not overly so, lingering chocolatey sweetness, lots of elegant, vanilla-like oak tannins and a hint of bourbon, warming the throat but not too wry or burning, aided by a presence of lightly citrussy hops adding some subtle bitterness; however, sweetness and booze dominate the ending. Very pleasant stout, easily drinkable, sweet and gentle, with a lovely bouquet.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Láhev 650 ml. Aroma je sladké s nádechem bourbonu, lehce alkoholu, dubu a jemně čokolády. Pěna je světle hnědá, jemná, vysoká a poměrně držící. Barva samotného piva je temná. Chuť je jemná, sladká s lehkým ovocným nádechem s náznakem dubu v pozadí, finiš je jemný, slabě hořký a držící. V ústech pivo působí plně, má střední říz a je dobře pitelné. Jedná se o dobrý barelovaný stout, snoubená jemnost se znatelným zráním v sudu mu dodává jistou chuťovou originalitu a lahodné aroma.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a black cola with a dark tan head (clinging lace). Easy five point appearance rating from a finicky observer. Aroma strengthens as the head wears thin: caramel, bread, hay, cereal, nuts, roasty, grassy hops, dough, cheese, leather, alcohol, banana, bubblegum, wow, awesome. Taste is near perfect balance but hard to rate a ten... oak is prevalent. Palate is nearly as strong with only a slight stickiness. It’s a super great brew... don’t know why I hesitate to rate it so high.

Draught at The Roundhouse. Nice whiskey spice kick, rich dark malt, raisin, mocha, hints of oak, warming alcohol finish. A solid stout with a pleasant bourbon edge.
