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.

kapusil (609) - 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.

cobaink2 (81) - seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Has vanilla notes with some licorice. this taste mellows after first opening. really balanced. Price point is very good for this and on the low end of alcohol content for a barrel aged beer. Would drink this again.
