Deep molasses with frothy head. Strong whiskey notes accentuates the roast aroma--if only they had used a better whiskey!! Nice, velvety rich coffee roast with bourbon complements in flavor.

Cask at Denver Chophouse. Aged in Wild Turkey barrels, apparently. Dark brown to near black and rather opaque Nose is bourbon, soft vanilla and roasty malts.Taste is subdued bourbon, light vanilla, roasty malts, light chocolate and coffee. Body is light but slicck. Ends with more roasty malts, vanilla, light coffee and chocolate. Surprisingly not too much bourbon throughout this.

Denver ChopHouse Wild Turkey Cask Conditioned Stout–on tap-pours a foamy tan head and black color. Aroma is sweet, syrup. Taste is sweet, syrup, wild turkey, alcohol. Mild carbonation. Nicely done, not my style.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 2, 2006
draft at the Brewpub. This was labeled as Wild Turkey stout. The brewer said it was the oatmeal stout aged in a Austin Nichols cask. Big bourbon nose with some cocoa, chocolate and dark fruit notes. Red/brown in color with a wispy tan head that fades quickly. Bourbon, dark fruits, oak, some tartness and strong chocolate notes. Light bodied with strong boozy bourbon notes int he finish and very little carbonation.

The bartender told me this was conditioned in Wild Turkey barrels. This was a fantastic beer, albeit a little green, I would love to have some of this to lay down and try again after a year or so. Strong alcohol aroma, immediately follwed by vanilla and oak when your nose calms down from the sting it just took. Lots of vanilla, with some nice whisky notes, licorice and a bit of molasses. This is tasty and creamy!

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2005 Tap at brewery. Whew! This one smells and tastes as advertised-- bourbon, oak, and hints of smoke. Fantastic beer; one of the best I’ve had.

Served on cask @ the brewery. Dark brown color with a small cask head of light tan. No aroma, maybe a little malt and a little oak, but nothing really....and my nose was smelling just fine. Flavor is initially sour and acidic on the palate and keeps its destruction until the end of the mid-palate. On the finish, is a very light lingering vanilla element, but overall this showed absolutely no malt complexity, no wood influence and no aroma. Clearly a very bad batch.

Dark brownish-black in color with a long lasting brown head. Aroma is mostly bourbon with some roasted malt. It has acreamy mouthfeel. Like the nose the flavor is mostly bourbon with a little roastiness.

3fourths (7858) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 11, 2004
Sampled at Rock Dottom Denver, downtown. Cask version. Dark brown body with a large light tan head speckled with large bubbles. Light bourbon nose, some cream and a little too hot up the nose, burning a little bit. First drink is smooth, but then it gets hot with way too much bourbon. Very smooth otherwise, with some sweet toffee flavors.
