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.

Pours brown with a thin tan head. Chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, and roasted malt. Creamy mouthfeel with a light to medium body. Low carbonation level. Good barrel aged stout.

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.

So as long you like bourbon you’ll be fine. Tastes like a wild turkey shot bombed into a nice stout. I like the idea but I can understand if someone says it tastes a hell of a lot like bourbon and not a whole lot else. Oak, vanilla, on a nice light stout beer. Well worth trying!

Tap @ pour. Dark brown with mocha head. Smells like bourbon and dark fruit and vanilla. Bourbon comes through in the flavor. Warming but not too heavy.

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.

The Cannery Row Beer Club were not a huge fan of this one. We don't recommend.
