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.

Dark brown pour, thin head. Aroma is bourbon chocolate, light smoke and cherry fruit. Light body for a bourbon stout. Fruit and whiskey on the front. Coffee and light toasted malt. Pleasant and not overly heavy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hidden_Pooch (356) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - OCT 24, 2014
Probably one of the best looking beers I have ever seen. Pours jet black with a incredible big mocha head. Aroma is of vanilla, chocolate, and big bourbon booze. I tasted the roasted malts and chocolate at first and then it just gets too bourbony overtime. The bourbon just dominates this stout too much. Has a heavy body with low carbonation. Has a dry mouth feel with a great boozy warmth. I would enjoy this on a sleigh ride though, too warm me up.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2187) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 23, 2014
6.9% on tap at Marciero. Pitch black with ruby highlights. Dark rich aroma featuring licorice and oaky bourbon. Medium bodied. The taste is rich dark chocolate, a bit toasty, balanced bourbon with oak & vanilla notes plus a hint of licorice.

kapusil (614) - HUNGARY - OCT 21, 2014
0.65l bottle. Black body, light brown head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, cream, cocoa and some smoke. The taste is very balanced among the chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, dark fruits, floral hops and the oak. The body could be a bit thicker, but it’s still an awesome beer.
